  1. Tony Parker, Spurs show Clippers what contender looks like

    Feb 22, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul reacts as San Antonio Spurs Parker gets past him during first quarter of NBA game in Los Angeles

    Last playoffs, in the second round, the Spurs swept the Clippers out 4-0. It was a beat down, but the kind improving teams like the Clippers are supposed to learn and grow from. Thursday night it didn’t look like the Clippers learned a thing. San Antonio’s execution exposed Los Angeles’ defense, the Clippers could get…

  2. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  3. Report: Knicks sign Kenyon Martin to 10-day contract

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Miami was interested, but the New York Knicks beat them to the man. The New York Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, tweeted first by Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and now confirmed by other sources. He steps into the roster spot created by the trade of Ronnie Brewer. The deal likely…

  5. Report: The Miami Heat are talking to Kenyon Martin

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Kenyon Martin has been waiting for his chance. After a respectable season with the Clippers last year — 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game — he wanted some mid-level money and multiple years at age 34. It didn’t come. Nothing came. After a while not even one-year deals for the veteran minimum were available.…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Harden’s Revenge Game

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:30 AM EDT

    James Harden

    On a night where trade talk dominated the news, James Harden served up a reminder that there’s an awful lot that must be considered when making a deal. Who knows how much it mattered to Oklahoma City at the time, but trading James Harden to a perennially competitive Western Conference foe badly in need of such…

  7. Spurs’ Patty Mills shows off impressive towel-waving repertoire (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Patty Mills

    Patty Mills spends about 10 minutes a game on the floor for the Spurs, backing up Tony Parker at the point. Which leaves 38 minutes a game for towel waving. And the Australian has become quite good at it. He has a lot of moves and he named them. It may lack the irrational exuberance…

  8. Report: Celtics say they won’t trade Rajon Rondo

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    All reports regarding a team’s trade intentions at this time of year should be read very carefully until any deal is actually completed. But this one regarding what the Celtics are planning to do with Rajon Rondo as Thursday’s deadline approches seems as close as we can get to a true assurance. From Sam Amick…

  9. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  11. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  12. The smaller deals: A trade rumor update as deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    We told you, the big deals we love to talk about are not as likely to happen this year. There’s a lot of buzz about the Celtics but if you were around Kevin Garnett at all All-Star weekend you saw a guy adamant he is not waiving he no trade clause. The Lakers are not…

  13. Jeremy Lin says he’s “thankful” he wasn’t voted as All-Star starter

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It came down to about 45,000 votes. That’s how much separated eventual NBA All-Star Game MVP Chris Paul from being replaced as a starter by Jeremy Lin (who finished with 883,809 votes, more than 400,000 than teammate James Harden). Now that the All-Star weekend circus has moved on from Houston, Lin can be honest —…

  14. Chris Paul talks about winning All-Star Game MVP (VIDEO)

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    Chris Paul is the best player in the NBA at orchestrating the game. Other guys — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — are more athletic and can take a game over with their skills, but CP3 is be more of a conductor. He can score, but he wants to control the game mentally and…

  15. Chris Paul wins MVP of 2013 NBA All-Star game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers holds up the MVP trophy after the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul took home the MVP trophy from the 2013 All-Star game, as he led the West to a 143-138 win in the NBA’s midseason exhibition, and did so in a contest that was close and competitive down the stretch. The award often times goes to the player who scores the most points…

  16. With CP3, Durant leading the way West wins tight All-Star Game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  17. Chris Paul, Tony Parker make Chris Bosh look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Paul of the Clippers takes the ball past All-Star Bosh of the Heat during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    Chris Bosh did not have a good first half. There was the 2-of-7 shooting with three airballs. There was some odd defensive choices like giving Chris Paul an uncontested layup to take away a potential lob to Blake Griffin. But these two plays by Paul and Tony Parker made him look worse than anything. Mocking…

  19. Report: Clippers, Jazz talking Bledsoe for Millsap trade

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers remain hesitant to deal young guard Eric Bledsoe — he’s a valuable part of the “tribe called bench” that has been a big part of Los Angeles’ success, plus he is their insurance at the point should Chris Paul unexpectedly decide to sign elsewhere this summer. But as the offers get…

  20. Raptors’ Ross wins dunk contest with Toronto tributes

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

  21. Report: Clippers say they are not shopping Bledsoe, Jordan

    Feb 16, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan,Spencer Hawes

    Well, what else is the Clipper front office going to say? “Sure, we’re desperate to move them, so send in your lowball offers now!” You always say you aren’t moving a guy until you move the guy. That said, there seems to be some real truth to the report that the Clippers are not looking…

  22. Kevin Garnett says he won’t waive his no-trade clause

    Feb 16, 2013, 3:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett has said that this is his last All-Star game. He’ll be turning 37 soon, and this will be his 15th All-Star game. He knows his way around this whole spectacle. It’s the same party every year for him. As a gift for what might be his last appearance, Garnett fielded tons of questions…

  23. Report: Clippers and Celtics still discussing a Kevin Garnett trade

    Feb 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    You may remember hearing some rumblings about this a few weeks back, but apparently the interest hasn’t died down. The Celtics and Clippers have been rumored as potential trade partners before, and that makes some sense. Boston is going to need to rebuild at some point, and the Clippers have a chance at a title…

    Feb 15, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-CLIPPERS-LAKERS

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul is having one of his best overall seasons, leading a deep and talented Clippers team to top-tier status playing among the elite in the Western Conference. Paul’s importance as the main cog that keeps the Clippers machine running was spotlighted recently, when his team struggled with a record of just 2-7…

  25. Bledsoe, Thompson, lots of young stars idolize Vince Carter

    Feb 15, 2013, 3:54 PM EDT

    Vince Carter Raptors

    HOUSTON — When NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest participant Eric Bledsoe was asked about his favorite dunk contest dunk he didn’t hesitate. “I think that dunk contest where Vince Carter did the 360,” Bledsoe said. That same answer came up over and over with young players — to them the legend of Michael Jordan or…
