During Tuesday's Mavericks-Clippers game, veteran announcer Dick Stockton had a pretty egregious announcing flub that he covered up pretty quickly. In the third quarter, Mike James of the Mavericks hoisted up a three that bounced off the front of the rim and into the arms of Blake Griffin. Stockton called the shot like it was a made three, and it took a second for him to realize it didn't go in as the crowd didn't cheer and the Clippers moved the ball up the court without inbounding the ball.
Stockton's recovery was classic, and his broadcast partner Chris Webber helped him out.
Stockton: "Or missed the three, excuse me. Came off the rim. I think you would have heard a bigger cheer..."
Webber: "Yeah, but I thought it went in too"
Stockton: "Don't you think they would have cheered? Why would they be so quiet?"
Even though it was a glaring blooper, Stockton recovered and was able to have a laugh about it. Thankfully for...

Jada Paul, Chris Paul’s wife, was on Instagram straight flexin’ recently, showing off her husband’s ridiculously massive sneaker collection, and it’s a sneakerhead’s dream. CP3′s wall to wall collection is so large, a customized walk-in closet was insufficient. Instead, Paul transformed an entire bedroom in the couple’s home into the ultimate...
Chris Paul’s wife provided this picture on her Instagram of just a portion of his shoe stock which is so huge that they needed an entire bedroom to make all those Jordans fit. I think Paul has more shoes right now than I’ve had in my entire life.
In a close game, the Clippers found themselves down by 3 last night in overtime to the Dallas Mavericks. An offensive possession finds the ball in Matt Barnes hands at the top of the key for a wide open 3-pointer. Barnes shoots 34% from 3 on the season, so many would conclude that that was a good shot and had a decent chance to tie the game.
Unfortunately, the shot wasn’t...
Chris Paul turned a bedroom of his house into a museum specifically for his shoes, and it is glorious.
Lamar Odom had the worst season of his career with the Dallas Mavericks last year. When the Mavericks acquired the 12-year veteran, they thought they would be getting the same type of role player the Los Angeles Lakers had during the seven years prior. That did not happen, and Odom’s only season in Dallas ended with the team paying him to not be on the roster.
As you might expect...
Lamar Odom received a roar of boos every time he touched the ball in his return to Dallas Tuesday, and though he says he’d apologize to Mark Cuban for the way things ended last season, he feels no guilt about his early departure from the team.
According to Tim MacMahon, ESPN Dallas:
“Guilty? No, no, no,” Odom said when asked if he felt guilt about the way his season in Dallas...
The last time the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Hornets on the road, they weren't even located in New Orleans.
The suddenly surging Hornets would like to keep it that way.
After opening a four-game trip with another road defeat, the Clippers look to avoid a 10th straight road loss to the Hornets on Wednesday night.
Los Angeles (48-23) hasn't managed to beat the Hornets...
Former Fab Five member and University of Michigan star Chris Webber is still technically “disassociated” with his alma mater for accepting money and gifts in the Ed Martin recruiting scandal. And really, Webber rarely touts in former school in public. But on Tuesday night during the Clippers-Mavericks telecast on TNT, C-Webb was in rare form.
While mentioning the NCAA Tournament...
