Los Angeles Clippers
One of the overriding themes in Chris Kaman's years-past time with the Los Angeles Clippers was owner Donald T. Sterling's "Reign Of Error." One of the overriding themes of the Clippers of present-time is Sterling's willingness to maintain happiness for stars like Chris Paul, a free-agent-to-be in the summer of 2013 and a long-time Dallas Mavericks acquisition target.
"Years-past" met "present-time" on Wednesday in LA, with Kaman's new team, the Mavs, being crushed by a 112-90 decision and reminding followers of the visiting team just how hungry Dallas is for a Paul-like superstar.
"He's the best point guard in the game," said Dallas coach Rick Carlisle of Paul, who had 14 points and 13 assists and with his five steals keyed a Clippers defense that forced 22 Mavs turnovers.
Paul is the centerpiece of a Clippers team that also features Blake Griffin 19 points, 13 rebounds, five assists) and Jamal Crawford (20 points off t...

When most people think of nasty slam dunks and the Los Angeles Clippers, they usually link Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan.Last night, Caron Butler added his name to the list as he threw down a nasty dunk in the grill of Dallas Maverick center Chris Kaman.He almost added a "mush" for good measure:
Earlier we had Blake Griffin's teammate Caron Butler throwing down on Chris Kaman's face, now we have Griffin throwing down on Elton Brand. This isn't one of his biggest dunks by any means, but it was very impressive mainly because it was left handed. Not many players in the NBA have the talent to throw down a huge dunk with their opposite hand. Check out the dunk...

It is a luxury to have two of the best leaders in the NBA on one team. That is exactly what the Clippers have in guards Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups. CP3 was voted by the general managers in 2012 as the best point guard and leader in the NBA - the previous winner of the award - was his current teammate, Chauncey Billups.Billups is the sage voice of reason, usually found in the...
