    I bet Mark Cuban bought them a toaster. A really, really nice and expensive toaster. Dirk Nowitzki now has another ring to go with that one Cuban bought him, he got married last month, the AP confirmed. The 34-year-old Dallas Mavericks star forward has married Jessica Olsson. State District Judge Craig Smith said Wednesday that…

    Blake Griffin

    Opposing teams have been trying to knock Blake Griffin off his game. Literally. As Griffin has emerged as an NBA star and powerhouse offensive force, other teams have started to combat his physical presence with some physical play of their own. Teams have been trying to push Griffin around. The Clippers noticed and as a…

    Craig Smith was not playing a lot of minutes for the Clippers (11 a game) because he and Blake Griffin were not blending well on the court. And when you have Blake Griffin you play him a lot. But when Smith went down with a herniated disc in his back, sidelining him for a couple…

    Craig Smith is the veteran big man off the bench who does the dirty work for the Los Angeles Clippers so their kids can go flying around the court. Except Rhino won’t be doing that for the next couple weeks — he will be out due to a herniated disc in his back. He had…

    Word comes from the twitter account of Lisa Dillman at the Los Angeles Times that the Clippers Craig Smith is going to appeal his flagrant II foul and any fines that come from the league from his tackling of George Hill last night. If you didn’t see the highlight, Rhino lived up to his nickname…

  9. As no games have been played, Clippers still very optimistic. Especially about Blake Griffin.

    Oct 4, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    On paper, the Clippers are a good team. All of us not named Clipper Daryl are tempered in our enthusiasm, based on history. And a deep Western conference. But you can see why there would be optimism, we just need to see it on the court. Craig Smith has seen that optimism on the court,…

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Even rhinos need to have their knees scoped out now and again. Craig Smith — the rhino, as he is known — had arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday the Clippers announced. The surgery was a success and a minor operation with a four to six week recovery time. Which will have him back in time for…

  11. Rhino running in Los Angeles again, Craig Smith signs with Clippers

    Jul 20, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Craig Smith is solid, reliable, a guy who is physical and will battle inside night in and night out. Consistency seemed like a novelty to Clippers fans last year, so they latched on to Rhino. He was a fan favorite late in the year, and now they get him back for another season. Craig Smith’s…
