Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Don’t expect the Hornets to buy out Chris Kaman

    Mar 16, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman, Nene

    The usual pattern goes like this: Team tries hard to trade overpriced veteran player, then if they find no takes they buy him out after the trade deadline. Then he signs elsewhere for the minimum (or fades into the sunset) That’s not going to be the pattern with Chris Kaman of the Hornets. New Orleans…

  2. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  4. Video: Kenyon Martin still has some hops left

    Mar 16, 2012, 8:26 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    There was a time when Kenyon Martin was one of the more feared dunkers in the league. Enjoy the video above as we travel back to that time… wait, what? This was Thursday night? But he’s 34 now? apparently watching Blake Griffin has rekindled a little of Martin’s ferociousness around the rim.  It’s fun to…

  5. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  6. Video: Pau Gasol, happy to still be with the Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol drives between Boston Celtics Brandon Bass and Celtics Jermaine O'Neal in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    It was a rough first half of the season for Pau Gasol. Ever since training camp, when he was included in the trade that would have sent him out of town in exchange for Chris Paul, except that it was vetoed … well, it was never really agreed to by the Hornets’ ownership, so technically…

  7. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  8. Denver trades Nene to Wizards in three-team deal with Clippers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Nene

    When the lockout ended, Nene was maybe the most coveted free agent out there — a true big man who is a borderline All-Star theoretically entering his prime. Denver was able to keep him with a five-year, $67 million contract. However, he has spent a chunk of this season injured and not putting up his…

    Mar 15, 2012, 12:18 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  12. Report: D’Antoni wanted to trade ‘Melo for Deron Williams

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    We know that now-former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan met Wednesday morning and came out of that meeting deciding to resign because of differences in how they saw the future of the organization. Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron…

  13. Winderman: Why Orlando has to trade Dwight Howard

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    That’s a pretty impressive piece of trivia that Stan Van Gundy is about to be attached to, if you believe the scuttlebutt: the first NBA head coach to be fired by both Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard (if you accepted the speculation back in December 2005 with the Heat). But if we actually decide to…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi.

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

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

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Rajon Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi, of course. (I was in the locker room last night and can confirm this.) What would life be like if…

  15. Danny Ainge: “Rondo’s not being traded”

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Danny Ainge was unequivocal as you can be in speaking with A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com before the Celtics took on the Clippers Monday night. “Rondo’s not being traded,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com prior to the Celtics facing the Los Angeles Clippers. “I don’t know how many times I have…

  16. Celtics suck the fun out of Clippers style, earn the win

    Mar 13, 2012, 2:54 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Avery Bradley slam dunks over the Los Angeles Clippers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Teams have to learn how to win at the NBA level. How to play to their strengths, how to recognize the mismatch and exploit it, how to go to the counter when the first option is taken away. Boston knows how to do that — their depleted roster and aging bodies may not let them…

  17. Why did Celtics win their first year together while Heat fell short, Clippers struggle?

    Mar 12, 2012, 10:19 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    The Boston Celtics have been the model. In 2008 they brought together a big three — Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen coming in to join Paul Pierce — and that first year they won a title. It was instant success, they were the team to beat in the NBA that season from day one. Last…

  18. Reports: Portland shopping Crawford to Clippers, Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford and his up-tempo, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later style has not meshed with the grind it out ways of Nate McMillan in Portland. It hasn’t been fun for him. What could possibly be worse. Charlotte. On the other hand, he could land with everyone’s new favorite team the Clippers. There are a few different reports out there.…

  19. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  20. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  21. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  23. Report: Chris Paul has nasal fracture, will wear mask just like you know who

    Mar 11, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    cpmas

    It’s apparently a fad now. From the Los Angeles Times: Chris Paul warmed up for Sunday’s game against Golden State with a very familiar accessory. A Kobe mask. Paul was hit in the face during the first quarter of Friday’s game against San Antonio. A Clippers spokesman said that Paul received an X-ray on Saturday and it…

  24. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  25. Report: Magic seek package similar to ‘Melo deal for Howard

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…
