    After 19 seasons in the NBA, Grant Hill announced his retirement Saturday. On the court, his legacy is “what might have been,” but off the court you will be hard pressed to find a player better liked by teammates and league executives. That came through when NBA players went to twitter after they heard the…

    With Grant Hill announcing his retirement after 19 NBA seasons on Saturday, the league put together a brief clip showcasing some of his highlights.

    Grant Hill is retiring after playing 19 seasons in the NBA, and he made the announcement personally on national television during TNT’s pregame coverage of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Jason Kidd, D.J. Augustin

    The Knicks expect Jason Kidd will return next season. Kidd said his “plan” is to come back, too. But the guard still hasn’t completely made up his mind. Kidd, via Marc Berman of the New York Post: “I am thinking about it. We’ll see. I have to make a decision. We’ll see what happens. Right…

  6. Report: Dwight Howard not going to Clippers… did we need a report for that?

    May 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    It’s Dwight Howard silly rumor season. Everyone knows the Lakers are still the front-runners in this race but the latest reports have the Rockets and Mavericks at least in a good stalking position to make a move once this race moves into the home stretch. Other teams may try to get into the mix as…

  7. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

    D.J. Augustin, Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd has scored exceptionally during the playoffs. There are many ways to evaluate scoring, but here’s how five players rank by one measure: Jason Kidd: 73 Carmelo Anthony: 24 Stephen Curry: 23 Kevin Durant: 21 LeBron James: 17 That’s how many points each player has scored during the 2013 playoffs, as a percentage of…

  9. Derrick Rose not playing Game 3. Shocking. Deng, Hinrich also out.

    Heat Bulls Basketball

    I can’t believe it — after missing 96 games Derrick Rose decided not to come back in the middle of a physical, intense playoff series to be guarded by Lebron James. Shocking. Who could have possibly seen such a thing coming? Despite all logic and all evidence to the contrary, some weak reports started to…

  10. Grant Hill would like to remind you doctors cleared him to play so he came back early

    May 9, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Washington Wizards

    “Derrick Rose has been cleared by the team doctors, what is his problem?” “Derrick Rose owes it to his teammates to come back.” (That would be Steve Kerr talking on TNT during the Bulls Game 2 loss). The pressure from the public and media on Rose to return from his ACL surgery a year ago…

  11. Clippers confident Chris Paul will stay with team this summer. They should be.

    May 7, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul and his agent are going to get calls — he is the best point guard in the NBA and he is an unrestricted free agent. He can go anywhere he wants this summer. Teams are going to take a shot. But they all know it’s a long shot. At best. The Clippers are…

  12. Report: Suns waiting to pick GM because they want Grant Hill to take job

    May 7, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    This would be a very Suns thing to do: Look past the guys who have worked hard in this role to earn the job and give it to the name guy you like who has no experience. The Phoenix Suns are in the process of hiring a new general manager for a team that needs…

    May 4, 2013, 1:36 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies guard Allen and Memphis Grizzlies forward Randolph celebrate during the second half of NBA basketball action in Memphis

    It was more of exactly what we’ve seen over the last three games of this series between the Grizzlies and the Clippers in Game 6, and that meant the end of the season for Los Angeles. The particulars changed slightly, but the level of confidence from Memphis and disarray from the Clippers remained constant. The…

  14. Marcin Gortat says lack of character in younger players a big problem for the Suns

    Apr 18, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    PHOENIX — Marcin Gortat was among the veteran Suns players who weren’t at all happy with the way this season went in Phoenix. Along with Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley, Gortat is a holdover from better times the team experienced while playing with the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, two of the game’s…

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Marc Gasol

    The Clippers got a huge win in terms of their possible playoff position on Saturday, by rolling into Memphis and taking down the Grizzlies 91-87. The victory puts L.A. in the driver’s seat for home court advantage in a potential first round matchup against these same Grizzlies, and gives the team a chance of moving…

  16. Grant Hill says there’s a ‘strong chance’ he’ll retire after this season

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Grant Hill joined the Clippers last summer, after the one-year offer that was presented by the Suns was inferior to the two-year deal he received from Los Angeles. That second year may not end up mattering much after all, since Hill says he’s leaning toward retiring at the conclusion of this season. From Paul Coro…

  17. Clippers’ Caron Butler out a week with elbow strain

    Mar 11, 2013, 5:46 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler is not a guy to oversell injuries. So when he was grabbing his left elbow Sunday night and went straight to the locker room, then when teammates seemed concerned after the game, there was reason for Clippers fans to be a little worried. X-rays on Sunday night were negative but the MRI was…

    Josh Smith, Wilson Chandler, JaVale McGee

    Wilson Chandler would like you to know the Denver Nuggets can put on a show in transition, too. On this play Ty Lawson strips Grant Hill, gets the ball ahead to Andre Iguodala, who in turn hits Chandler who has run the floor hard straight to the rim. Matt Barnes tries to make a play…

  19. Clippers bench, Chris Paul too much for Carmelo Anthony alone in L.A. win

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Carmelo Anthony tried — he took over the game in the third quarter, put up 42 points for the game and lifted the Knicks to the lead. But the Clippers took control of the game again when their bench returned to start the fourth — Los Angeles got 48 points from their bench on the…

  20. The Extra Pass: The Eric Bledsoe Predicament

    Feb 6, 2013, 9:05 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe Clippers

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe is one great big problem. He’s a problem for opponents who have to bring the ball up against him. He’s a problem for big men that think they’ll safely collect rebounds. He’s a problem for the backpedaling guard in transition that has to stay in front of him. He’s…

    Feb 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay played his first game with the Raptors on Friday, after being the main piece in a three-team trade that sent him out of Memphis due to the team’s finances more than anything else. Gay came off the bench in his Toronto debut, and finished with a team-high 20 points in 33 minutes as…

    L.A. Clippers' forward Matt Barnes pushes Minnesota Timberwolves' center Greg Stiemsma during the first half of their NBA basketball game in the Target Center in Minneapolis

    Yes, that deserved a suspension — you go at a guy’s neck, you get ejected and suspended for a game.

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Matt Barnes was ejected in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game between the Clippers and the Timberwolves, after violently grabbing the neck of Greg Stiemsma.
