After the Los Angeles Clippers‘ big men got mauled by the Grizzlies‘ duo of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, it became clear that they need to get bigger and tougher along their front line if they hope to compete in their conference (among other things).
The Clips are reportedly eyeing a certified front line warrior in the Pacers’ David West, a free agent once the season ends. Read More »

With less than eight teams remaining in the NBA Playoffs, it means a few “contenders” have already been eliminated from title contention. The offseason is the time for these teams to retool to prepare for deeper runs next season. The Los Angeles Clippers were one of the better teams in the Western Conference all year. Read More »

The point guard position in the NBA has quickly become one of the most competitive spots in all of sports. There are so many good lead guards in the NBA that it’s impossible for any player at the position to take a night off.
The position has seen a major increase in talent over the past decade. It’s an ongoing trend. Ever since Chris Paul won the Rookie of the Year award in ’05-06 that teams have realized how valuable lead guards — true lead guards — really are. Read More »

For most of us, a great birthday present would be some new kicks. This past weekend, teenagers were doing whatever they could to get their hands on the Grapes. But for Chris Paul, a new pair of sneakers isn’t exactly a cause for celebration. You’ve seen his shoe closest, right? Absurd. Read More »

[Happy birthday to one of our favorite players, Chris Paul. For his big day, check out this list we put together a little while back celebrating CP3's Top 10 Crossovers.]
Chris Paul is the best point guard in the NBA. There’s no debating that. Anything you need from a point guard Paul can do. Need assists? Paul dished 9.7 assists a night this season. Need defense? Paul led the league in steals with 2.4 a game. Need points? Paul was third in scoring on the Los Angeles Clippers with 16.4 a night (that number jumped to 22.8 in the playoffs). Need ballhandling? Paul dribbles like the basketball is just an extension of his fingers. Read More »
The Clippers had to be the most disappointing team this postseason, not only blowing a 2-0 lead against Memphis, but also giving up a real chance at making the Finals. No one was more talented. There’s a good chance coach Vinny Del Negro isn’t brought back next year, and this is the craziest name we’ve heard yet as a potential replacement: Chauncey Billups. Read More »

Bringing up the argument of who won the James Harden trade is almost as pointless as the best rapper debate at your local barbershop. There’ll always be one or two guys who co-sign your stand, and there’ll always be a handful who think you’re out of your mind. There will be a lot of pointless arguing and talking in circles. There’s almost never a middle ground. Read More »
What a battle last night between Chris Paul (24 and nine dimes) and Mike Conley (28 and nine). CP3 emerged victorious after knocking down a serious shot in the final seconds, but the PG face off up to that point was just great to watch.
Check out this video of the buckets and assists from the two of them – back and forth, up and down the floor, alley oops and gritty floaters for days: Read More »
