If the off-season is any indication of what the upcoming season is going to be like, WATCH OUT!! We are going to have to be seat belted to our recliners. Boston goes ALL IN on its rebuilding process, the two coaches that led their teams to their best ever seasons are gone, Dwight Howard and the indecision part 2 and then there was the 2013 NBA Draft. The sad thing is, we have just started the off-season. So ladies and gentlemen, sit back cause the NBA is back!!!
So far, the Los Angeles Clippers have made the best moves in this off-season. They landed Doc Rivers as their new head coach. Chris Paul commits to re-signing with the Clippers (5-years for $107 million). Then yesterday the Clippers managed to retain the services of three-point specialist J.J. Redick and Jared Dudely, an even better three-point shooter, for next to nothing compared to the talent they got in return.
The Clippers are starting to find themselves in uncharted waters. They have inched themselves right up a...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It’s been a little over a week since Doc Rivers forced his way out of Boston.
Scouring the internet, it isn’t hard to find fans and media alike singing the praises of Doc. Many claim his time was up and that he had every right to move on. Some even see him as the savior of a storied franchise that had been tarnished and dragged through the mud for over two decades.

Chris Paul’s contract: 5 years, 107 million max deal
- Doc Rivers must be smiling. Two weeks ago, he was looking at a rebuilding year with an aging Boston squad, a rebuild that would have taken a whole lot of work to turn things around and could have even tarnished his resume if things...
Clippers all-star Chris Paul has re-upped so I suspect shots of he and Mrs. Paul will be in heavy rotation all summer. The couple hit up Boa in West Hollywood recently for a bite to eat. The popular West Hollywood eatery is a paparazzi haven and the food is EVERYTHING! Considering it’s not too far from the Paul’s Bel-Air mansion, I assume it’s become one of their fav LA restaurants...
You would expect Chauncey Billups to be preparing for a front office role, or slowing making his exit out the game. That is not the case though.
Pro Basketball Talk via Chris Broussard is reporting that Billups would like to play two more seasons.
Chauncey Billups looking to play 2 more years. Several clubs interested in him as backup, which he understands. Detroit has done interest...

Matt Barnes has agreed upon a three-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers worth between $11 millon and $12 million.
Since Dwight Howard is a sensitive prima donna the Lakers have been trying to make him feel wanted by plastering Stay banners around L.A. Looks like the Clippers decided to taunt their fellow Staples Center tenants with the above banner. I really hope Howard leaves, but I could totally see him reupping with the Lakers and then immediately regretting it. Basically what he did with...
WALTHAM – The Boston Celtics introduced Brad Stevens as their 18th head coach today, replacing Doc Rivers. Jared Weiss was on the scene to capture it all and deliver the latest video of The Garden Report: Offseason Edition.
The 2013-2014 version of the Los Angeles Clippers are on a mission, that they expect will result in the franchise’s first appearance in the NBA Finals and a shot at the Larry O’Brien Trophy. This is not your Father’s Clippers. No longer just the “Other Team In Los Angeles,” the squad has spent the first few days of the off-season getting prepared for what they hope will...

Lots of money there. Still almost a 50% savings from Doc Rivers.
Bill Simmons has had the Midas touch during his ESPN tenure but his standoff with Doc Rivers showed a potential unintended consequence that may plague ESPN long after his departure.
