Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Dooling says Rondo is NBA’s second best player. Behind Durant.

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:48 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo celebrates during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles

    Keyon Dooling said some genuinely important things during his CSNNE.com interview this week, and if you haven’t read about his discussion of him being abused you should do that first. It matters more than basketball. But Dooling talked basketball, too, and let’s just say he’s higher on Rajon Rondo than you are. Really, he’s higher…

  2. Who is NBA’s biggest trash talker? Curry says Nate Robinson, CP3

    Sep 27, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    For some of us, the first name that comes to mind is Kobe Bryant, he constantly chirps. He said he started the trash talk on Team USA. Other people – particularly smaller guards — might think of Kevin Garnett. There are a lot of guys who talk smack during an NBA game, but when The…

  3. No pressure Vinny Del Negro, but it’s the last year of your contract

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:55 AM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    All season long the talk around the Los Angeles Clippers will be about contracts — Chris Paul will be a free agent next summer. It’s the smart move financially for him to become a free agent and re-sign with the Clippers, but that free agency gives him leverage. Enough leverage that pretty much every player…

  4. Clyde Drexler thinks the Suns will make playoffs. This year.

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:28 AM EST

    clyde drexler

    Steve Nash is gone. Grant Hill is gone. Michael Beasley is going to be picking up a lot of the scoring slack. Channing Frye is now likely out for the season. It’s going to be a rough season for the rebuilding Suns… unless you ask Clyde Drexler. Drexler is the one Suns true believer. He…

  5. Barnes pleads no contest to traffic warrant, gets community service

    Sep 25, 2012, 11:48 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Matt Barnes will do 30 hours of community service and go through some counseling sessions as part of a no contest plea to his arrest for unlicensed driving and resisting arrest earlier this summer. Barnes, who signed with the Clippers just a couple weeks ago, was not in the Manhattan Beach courtroom Tuesday but his…

  6. Don’t expect Atlanta to extend Josh Smith. Which means more trade rumors.

    Sep 25, 2012, 9:13 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    If you are taking preseason bets on “guy to show up in the most trade rumor posts” on your favorite message board, Josh Smith would be a good call. For example, look at this one from Boston already. (By the way, Brandon Bass, Avery Bradley and a first round pick for Smith is a horrible…

  8. Winderman: Time for shorter NBA training camps

    Sep 25, 2012, 12:36 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The list of players who will miss the start of training camp is significant, everyone from Chris Paul to Al Harrington to possibly Dwyane Wade. Each, though, could be back for the start of the regular season. Which either means the offseason is too short or camp is too long. Yet here we are, on…

  9. Chris Paul says he will play in preseason, be ready Oct. 31

    Sep 25, 2012, 11:41 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Chris Paul says he and his surgically-repaired thumb are going be ready to go when the Clippers tip off the season on Halloween night against he Memphis Grizzlies. And they’ll play in a preseason game, too. Remember Paul tore a ligament his thumb in a fluke play on one of the first days of Team…

  10. Report: Lou Amundson agrees to deal with Timberwolves

    Sep 24, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Louis Amundson

    After looking at a few guys to come in as an off-the-bench big man for Minnesota, they made their choice. And sorry Timberwolves fans, it is not Anthony Tolliver. Minnesota and Lou Amundson reached terms on a one-year deal, tweets Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. Source tells me Lou Amundson to sign a 1-year…

  11. Could LaMarcus Aldridge win MVP? Well, no, but let’s talk about it anyway

    Sep 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol

    Welcome to today’s “There’s a week left until training camp and I’d chew my own arm off if it meant I could blog about it” post. Blazers Edge posted a link to a story on Rip City Project on Saturday night. It contained the following passage regarding LaMarcus Aldridge and a possible MVP bid: It…

  12. Matt Barnes talks being a Clipper, finding minutes

    Sep 22, 2012, 12:59 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    For a guy who has spent the past few seasons being a solid role player on quality teams — Orlando first then the Los Angeles Lakers — it took a while this summer for Matt Barnes to catch on with a team. And Barnes understands why. “First and foremost, me being injured last year during…

  13. Chris Paul a few weeks away from workouts due to thumb

    Sep 21, 2012, 4:44 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Chris Paul quietly played through pain to get a gold medal in London — his thumb injury suffered one of the first days in Las Vegas was bad enough to require surgery afterward, but he was not going to bow out. He got his surgery, and he should be ready to go when the season…

  14. Matt Barnes talks about NBA players trend of MMA workouts

    Sep 21, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Matt Barnes

    When Matt Barnes started to focus on really getting in shape for the upcoming NBA season, he couldn’t do what a lot of ballers in the Los Angeles area do through the summer — head over to UCLA, home of some NBA-level pickup games. Some days it seems like half the NBA is there. Barnes…

  16. Suns’ Channing Frye out indefinitely with enlarged heart

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:54 PM EST

    Channing Frye

    Heart screening of NBA players is a regular part of their pre-training camp physicals. It is what found Jeff Green’s heart condition that needed surgery last season. A number of other NBA players such as Ronny Turiaf have faced the same thing. Now Suns forward Channing Frye is out indefinitely with an enlarged heart, the…

  17. Video: Blake Griffin is a champion chicken caller (on Sesame Street)

    Sep 20, 2012, 2:09 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    Blake Griffin was back on Sesame Street helping teach your children about the word “champion.” And as part of it he acted like a chicken. And when you combine all that there was no chance we were not going to run it. You can insert your own joke about how they didn’t ask Amare Stoudemire…

  18. NBA Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    Sep 19, 2012, 1:58 PM EST

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Last season: They went 39-27 and won the Atlantic Division, which was nice but in Boston division titles are not how a team is measured. They handled the Hawks as expected in the first round of the playoffs, then in the second round ran into a plucky but inexperienced Sixers team and Boston won in…

  19. Chris Paul still pissed about Pau Gasol’s pat on the head

    Sep 19, 2012, 12:57 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Gasol looks back at Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    First thing: You should go read the entire Chris Paul feature in GQ because it’s a good insight into one of the more grounded NBA superstars you’re going to come across. He is as competitive as Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett, but he doesn’t let that fire consume him to the point he doesn’t play…

  20. Grant Hill says what Nash did like going from Duke to North Carolina

    steve nash-grant hill

    Grant Hill left Phoenix for Los Angeles, but nobody in the Valley of the Sun really holds that against him because he’s going to the Clippers and, while they certainly will be good, nobody really hates them yet. Everyone kind of shrugs at that move west. Steve Nash going from the Suns to the hated…

  21. Winderman: The NBA is too nice. We need some real rivalries.

    Sep 19, 2012, 10:33 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Dwight Howard somehow now is friends with Stan Van Gundy and hopes to eventually be remembered fondly in Orlando. LeBron James returned to Cleveland last season saying he would not rule out perhaps one day again playing for the Cavaliers. Ray Allen took out a full-page ad in Boston to remind Celtics fans how much…

  23. Report: Knicks, Celtics like Kenyon Martin, but money is issue

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  24. Griffin “excited” about Clippers, says Lakers good on paper

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:21 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    There was a point at the start of the summer, way back in June, when you could picture the Clippers being better than the Lakers this season. The Lakers were what they were, the Clippers had young pieces like Blake Griffin that should be improving. Then Steve Nash and Dwight Howard happened. And now in…

  25. Eric Gordon says he plans to make Anthony Davis’ life easier

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:47 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    Anthony Davis has had it pretty good — first an NCAA title at Kentucky where he was a fantastic player, then being the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets, then getting to win a gold with Team USA in London where Kobe Bryant and LeBron James kind of took him under their wings. Now,…
