When initial reports of recorded racist remarks made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling first surfaced Friday night, I said that by Sunday this would be the lead story everywhere. The ensuing firestorm has already exceeded those expectations.
When Chris Paul was elected as the new president of NBA players union, many expected him to ease into his role slowly before making any big moves or public stances. Apparently that’s not going to be the case.
ABC and ESPN are bringing us a great NBA on Christmas Day slate of action starting at noon and going late into the night.
Before we get to the NBA’s Christmas Day schedule for 2012, a quick little something for anyone who might at all be struggling to get into the Christmas spirit.
They dismantled the Spurs 106-84 and seemed to do it with ease. They beat the Lakers 105-95. And last night they beat the defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat, 107-100. This Clippers team is for real.
After Kobe Bryant calmly stated that he thought this vintage of Team USA could beat the Dream Team, fans everywhere – plus MJ, Larry, and Charles – started to straight up lose their minds. It got Jon thinking … who would make the Ultimate Dream Team cut out of the 24 combined players involved in this discussion?
In honor of the NBA Playoffs being in full swing, with 16 teams still standing, here are my top 16 players to build a franchise around going forward.
Pau Gasol is one of the hot names in this morning’s sports highlight cycle after last night’s brief disagreement with Chris Paul. Jerod found the act and react photos rather humorous, as he often does with pictures involving Gasol. So he decided to find the best of the best and create a gallery. Here is is.
Here is part one of Jon’s Eastern Conference Preview, which analyzes one of the most compelling debates in basketball today: which point guard (and more generally, which type of point guard) would you rather have running your team – Rajon Rondo or Derrick Rose?
With the NBA season beginning on Christmas, Devon serves up his previews of each game and accompanies it with the TV schedule! Enjoy!
I know the preseason doesn’t mean anything as far as records go, but the Clippers impressed me and I think they surprised the Lakers. It’s reasonable to wonder if the new-look Clippers could be the best team in Los Angeles (and maybe even the Western Conference) this year.
With the Clippers now acquiring a second star, where does this leave them? Did they get a great deal? Are they championship contenders now? Devon has the answers.
The lengths to which David Stern has gone to keep Chris Paul in New Orleans inspired this David Stern/Chris Paul/Kathy Bates/James Caan mash-up.
Trade talks have resumed between the Lakers, Hornets and Rockets, so will Chris Paul be gone soon? How about Dwight? It’s all here!
In one of the most bizarre cases in sports history, the NBA decided to overrule a trade involving the Lakers, Rockets, and Hornets last night for “basketball reasons.” Jon Washburn assesses and ranks the biggest losers in the Chris Paul trade fiasco, with none bigger than commissioner David Stern.
