Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Blake Griffin thinks Clippers should hire in-house for GM

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers have gone through this summer without a general manager since Neil Olshey took the pay raise in Portland — and done pretty well for themselves. They made the obvious move and gave Blake Griffin a max extension. They landed Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill to give them a deeper bench and some veteran…

  2. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  4. Carmelo Anthony says Knicks have no rivalry with Nets. Yet.

    Aug 27, 2012, 10:38 AM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates in the win over Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The New York Knicks will open the NBA season by heading over the bridge to Brooklyn and helping the Nets christen their new home. Knicks vs. Nets. Brooklyn vs. Manhattan. A battle for New York. A real rivalry… Not yet, says Carmelo Anthony. Speaking at a camp at St. Johns, the Knicks leader and gold…

  5. Blake Griffin says he’s back at 100 percent

    Aug 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    When Blake Griffin went down with a knee injury, his second serious knee injury of his career, during Team USA practice, the jokes were pretty predictable. I’m pretty sure “Clippers Curse” was trending in parts of the world. There’s a certain expectation that whatever can go wrong will go wrong for “the other L.A. team.”…

  6. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  7. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  8. Clippers not expecting Chauncey Billups back until November

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to be ready for the start of the season. But the Clippers are not really counting on the 36-year-old bouncing back from an Achilles injury that fast. In a report discussing how the Clippers will start this season trying to play catch up due to injury, Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles…

  10. Chris Paul out eight weeks after thumb surgery, likely misses start of camp

    Aug 21, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Chris Paul injured his thumb early on in USA Basketball training camp for the Olympics, while the team was still in Las Vegas. It held him up for a few days, but he came back and played well — Paul was huge in the second half of the USA’s gold medal winning game over Spain.…

  11. Here are your top-10 NBA highest-paid players for 2012-13

    Aug 21, 2012, 3:50 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The NBA salaries are basically set for next season, minus a few tweaks for late pickups and drops. While there are a few good players still out there as free agents, said players are discovering right now the market is pretty dry. I hope they all like the veteran minimum. So who is going to…

  12. Anthony Davis says Olympics made him more confident

    Aug 21, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis pretty much fell backwards on to the London Olympic team. Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski like him as a prospect, but it took injuries to Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin (his in training camp) for Team USA to get desperate enough to grab the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets.…

  13. Clippers got better this summer, yet in L.A. it’s same old story (all Lakers)

    Aug 21, 2012, 8:59 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are a legitimately good team. They went 40-26 last season, one game back of the Pacific Division winning Los Angeles Lakers. Then this summer they went out and added Lamar Odom, Grant Hill and Jamal Crawford. They have the best point guard in the game in Chris Paul — a guy you can…

    Aug 20, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Chauncey Billups wants to go out on his own terms. Not as a once-fantastic player and NBA finals MVP whose career was cut short by an Achilles injury, but as a guy who came back and helped the Clippers reach new heights as both a player and almost an on-court coach. It usually takes about…

  16. Andray Blatche says all the right things while waiting for the call

    Aug 19, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee

    Andray Blatche personified a lot of the problems for the post-Arenas era in Washington that the Wizards have tried so hard to shake. A hot shooting stretch after Arenas was suspended and Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison were traded in a blow-up lead to a huge contract. Knuckleheaded behavior and poor shot selection soon followed,…

  17. Hornets agree to four-year extension with Monty Williams

    Aug 19, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    Monty Williams

    Surviving last year with the Hornets is a pretty impressive feat for Monty Williams. Losing Chris Paul and David West, dealing with the veto debacle, having Eric Gordon perpetually injured, being drastically low on talent, the deck was stacked against Williams. But instead of the team falling apart, even though they wound up with an…

  18. Blake Griffin has spent summer reworking his jump shot

    Aug 16, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Clippers' Griffin slam dunks against Grizzlies during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    We all know Blake Griffin needs a more consistent jump shot. Spare me the “all he can do is dunk” line because first, it’s not true, and second, the dunk is the single most efficent shot in basketball and if a guy can get five or more dunks a game he should take every one…

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler is just hanging with his family this summer — and playing games with them. Ice Bucket Family Feud. But seriously, you should be able to be able to beat your kid at thumb wrestling. Every time. Hey, it’s summer, you can watch this or have the 584th breakdown of the Dwight Howard trade.…

  20. On the amazing ripple effects of the 2004 Shaq Trade

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    Remember the Summer of 2004? The Lakers, who came into the season with Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Shaq making up 80% of their starting 5, had just lost a “gentlemen’s sweep” to the Detroit Pistons. Kobe Bryant was a free agent. Shaq still had that pre-max monster of a deal, and he…

  21. Andrew Bynum to go to Germany for knee procedure on reportedly healthy knees

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:16 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Seven

    Andrew Bynum was involved in the huge NBA trade last week, getting shipped from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers in a move that  also saw Dwight Howard and Andre Iguodala change teams, among others. Sixers fans seemed okay with the deal, but that might have changed when they read the latest report…

  22. Report: Jazz had trade talks about getting Ryan Anderson

    Aug 13, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Tyrus Thomas

    Ryan Anderson would have been a good fit in the Utah Jazz’s offense — they needed someone who could knock down the three and stretch the floor, and that is what Anderson does best. They wanted him. But the price was too steep — Paul Millsap. That according to a new report from Brian Smith…

  23. Eleven guys who came out of London Olympics big winners

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    The USA is the big winner in London — in our “winner take all” society they won the gold medal, they get the spoils. And no doubt they were the best team in the games. But a number of players came out of London as winners in the reputation game. Eric Freeman nailed a great…

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. One thing that frustrates me about the NBA more than anything else is how small the list of title contenders…

    Jamal Crawford

    You just expect Jamal Crawford to make big plays in the Jamal Crawford ProAm. I mean he created it and named it after himself and all. And you would not be disappointed. Crawford’s event is in Seattle and former Huskie Spencer Hawes was there. Hawes was back on defense and caught in this unfortunate fast…
