  1. Clippers vs. Warriors to be last Christmas Day game

    Dec 1, 2011, 4:53 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Looks like Blake Griffin and Stephen Curry are going to have to work on Christmas. The Warriors are going to host the last of five Christmas Day games, with the Clippers as the opponent, according to CSNBayArea.com. (Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times broke the story.) This will be the last game of the…

  2. Warriors looking to go big in free agent market

    Dec 1, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    While the return of the NBA has meant the return of fantasy trade scenarios, the Warriors are one team that appears locked in on free agency — at least for now. The Warriors are looking to sign a big man during the abbreviated free agency period, sources tell Warriors Insider Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. The…

  3. Westbrook, Griffin talk dunks, wear suits in GQ

    Nov 30, 2011, 2:08 PM EDT

    1211-GQ-FASU01.01

    Nothing goes together like fashion and dunks. Well… maybe chocolate and peanut butter, but that’s it. Which is why a new photo spread in the pages of GQ goes so well together. NBA players Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Andre Iguodala, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown talk dunks and get their pictures taken dunking in suits.…

  4. Report: NBA to have five games on Christmas Day

    Nov 30, 2011, 1:49 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    The NBA’s season opener has apparently gotten bigger. What David Stern said would be a triple-header has now grown to be five games, according to the New York Times. The first game will be on TNT, followed by two on ABC and two on ESPN. The league will announce the details of the five-game opening…

  5. Report: Clippers will go hard after Dwight Howard

    Nov 29, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    This is what a star like Blake Griffin can do for a franchise. A year ago, the Los Angeles Clippers were not on anybody’s radar as a free agent until they got desperate. Now, in one day they have popped up as a potential landing spot for the two biggest free agents on the market.…

  6. Report: Chris Paul eyeing Knicks or… Clippers?

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    When the New Orleans Hornets reach out to Chris Paul not long after Dec. 9, they will offer him a max deal that will have one more guaranteed year and be worth $27 million more than what any other team can offer. That’s a lot of money. And there are not many people — even…

  7. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  8. Friday one liners: Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd charity game

    kidd-nash

    Like the leftovers you are trying to fashion into meal, here are few things scattered around today we are fashioning into a post. • Up at UC Berkley (what you call Cal) there is a charity game scheduled now for Dec. 10 billed as “Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd” (via the twitter of Yahoo’s Marc…

  9. Power Balance owes Kobe Bryant, Kings big money

    Nov 23, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Italy Basketball Bryant Bologna

    Power Balance — the makers of those wrist bands that a number of NBA players wear — has settled a class action lawsuit that said they were crap. There have been a few of those lawsuits and a lot of legal fees. Andnow the company is filing bankruptcy. Which is mostly interesting to me because…

  10. NBA letting arenas book on NBA dates in December

    Oct 21, 2011, 9:10 AM EDT

    staples-center

    Even before NBA labor negotiations went south yesterday and union president Derek Fisher walked in the room and called the owners liars, there were ominous signs. The league has started to let NBA areas fill in NBA dates with other events as far out as December. At least they have at the Staples Center in…

  11. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire posterizes Blake Griffin poster

    Stoudemire_dunk2

    We told you that Amar’e Stoudemire was working his way around the ESPN campus talking lockout and pimping his new shoes yesterday. But that was not the best part. This video is, when Stoudemire plays some nerf ball against a Blake Griffin poster. (Via The Point Forward at Sports Illustrated)

  12. Blake Griffin gets naked for ESPN, but in a good way

    Oct 6, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    ESPN the Magazine is coming out soon with its annual “body issue” where artistic photographs of athletes’ bodies — barely covered — show off the human form. And likely sells some copies, because isn’t the point of art to make money off of it? Which leads us to Funny or Die intern — and someday…

  13. Jamario Moon signs with Quebec of Canadian NBL

    Oct 4, 2011, 9:46 PM EDT

    MOON_JAMARIO

    Jamario Moon is popular in Canada. No, I’m not kidding. He is a high flying dunker who came into the league and had his best season with the Raptors. They still love him north of the border, while America asks “who?” So Moon is going back to Canada during the lockout, to play for the…

  14. Darius Miles to face felony charges for airport gun incident

    Sep 30, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    Just a reminder out there for those of you traveling this weekend: The federal government severely frowns on you brining a gun on board an airplane. Former NBA player Darius Miles forgot that back in August, now he is about to face felony charges for it. KMOX.com has the details (via Eye on Basketball). Former…

  15. Who dunks the most? It’s not the Clipper you think.

    Sep 28, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    Really fascinating little bit of research over at Golden State of Mind (a fantastic Warriors blog you should be checking out anyway) — they ran the numbers to see who had the most dunks, layups, hook shots and tip in across the NBA last season. They did it by “dunks per 100 possessions,” which basically…

  16. Video: There’s this evil Blake Griffin puppet and… just watch

    Sep 26, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    You read that headline right. Over at Funny or Die they are having fun with the Blake Griffin internship. They got former “Sliders” star Jerry O’Connell (what, he did other stuff?) to jump in on a story where the pitch had to go something like “it’s ‘lil Penny meets Chucky.” Whatever, it works. It’s funny,…

  17. Spurs “rodeo road trip” highlights schedule issues if games are missed

    Sep 20, 2011, 7:59 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It is not impossible for the NBA season to start on time. However, once you factor in time needed for a shortened free agent period and training camps (again shortened), the owners and players need to hammer out a deal in about a week or so. So, not impossible, but I wouldn’t bet your rent…

  18. What the Clippers should do when the lockout ends

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This is the latest installment of our “when the lockout ends” series. To see the other teams we have done, follow this link. Don’t worry, we’ll get to your team soon enough. Last season in Los Angeles: The Clippers became what Brazil is to international soccer — everyone’s second favorite team. Blake Griffin changed the…

  19. Report: Couple more names pop up on Blazers GM list

    Sep 9, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    The Trail Blazers are looking at the men making basketball decisions for the Cavaliers and Clippers for their front office. Don’t laugh — if the criteria for the job is getting along with a pain-in-the-butt owner who injects himself into basketball decisions at bad times, front office people coming out of Cavalier and Clipper organizations…

  20. Photo: Eric Bledsoe is good at jumping

    Aug 31, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe wasn’t the biggest name at yesterday’s Melo league vs. Goodman league exhibition game, but he did provide one heck of a picture after this dunk. It could be the angle of the photo throwing me off, but I’m pretty sure that Bledsoe’s collarbone is at the rim here. Impressive, to say…

  21. Clipper Darrell planning sleep-in protest lockout at Staples

    Aug 31, 2011, 8:25 AM EDT

    clipper darrell

    Clipper Darrell is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. He’s going to sleep. On his twitter account a few weeks ago, Clipper Darrell said he plans to sleep outside the Staples Center in protest of the lockout until somebody gives in. Who is Clipper Darrell you ask? An institution at…

  22. Blake Griffin didn’t just dunk on the Knicks, he farted on them

    Aug 19, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin did worse things to the Knicks than turn Timofey Mozgov into a poster child when he put on a thunderous display against the Knicks. He farted on them, too. Seriously. Griffin was on the Champs with Neal Brennan podcast and let the story go just like he let one go in a game…

  23. Keith Closs talks about drinking away his NBA career

    Aug 7, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    closs

    In some ways, it’s wrong to say Keith Closs — a backup center with the Clippers from 1997 to 2000 and was a case study of unfulfilled promise — drank himself out of an NBA career. That’s because he says he was drinking in junior high, and high school, and college — all while playing…

  24. Blake Griffin is a surfer, dude

    Aug 1, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Surfing is usually on the list of things players are banned from doing in the offseason, it’s part of their contract. To argue “but you just fall in the water” is to not respect the power and force of waves, or to understand how much it can hurt when a board tethered to your leg…

  25. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is not in the Olowokandi fan club

    Jul 26, 2011, 1:16 PM EDT

    Michael Olowokandi #34

    In an ESPN column ostensibly about how the owners need to get their revenue sharing house in order before they tell the players to take less money — a point with some validity — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar goes off on a tangent. And tells a great story. Kareem, who has served as a big man assistant…
