If Blake Griffin is the main story, then Eric Gordon is the running subplot, George Costanza to Blake’s Jerry Seinfield. Had Blake Griffin not burst onto the Clipper scene this year, Gordon would have been the main story. However, Eric Gordon was never meant to be the main plot, but the strong subpl[...]
Usually, we sophisticated NBA blogger types try to avoid superlatives, those words like “most” and “best” and “worst” that indicate the ultimate degree of something. Good writing and good analysis both favor the qualified over the absolute, the carefully parsed over a whitewashed generality. [...]
Like some of you, I’m a Dodgers fan and in the last few days I couldn’t have been happier to find out that Bud Selig took over the financial operations for Frank McCourt and the Los Angeles Dodgers. For most Dodger fans, myself included, it was a long time coming. While McCourt has been [...]
In his first season as coach of the Clippers, you could say Vinny Del Negro was exactly what we expected him to be. His perceived ability to develop players and to “get” his team to play hard through the last whistle were the reasons the Clippers hired him over Dwane Casey, who came with high praise[...]

Blake Griffin lined up on the block with Randy Foye at the line. The Clippers had all but sealed the win, even though the Clips almost completely lost a 29 point lead. Randy Foye missed his second free throw, Blake grabbed the rebound, missed, got his second rebound of the possession for his 10th re[...]
The Clippers finish up their 2010-2011 season against the Grizzlies in what should be an underwhelming affair. While the two teams have played some very close games (the 85-84 loss in Staples in December and 82-81 win with the double foul only weeks ago), the season is all wrapped up. The Grizzlies [...]
In a battle of which team could care less, the Clippers clearly won. Or lost. Or whatever. The game had a depressing concessionary feel with the Rockets officially out of the playoffs, sitting Kyle Lowry, and the Clippers struggling in the absence of Chris Kaman and the after-effects of Eric Bledsoe[...]
