WATCH: Blake Griffin’s coast-to-coast dunk

The NBA season is officially underway, and Blake Griffin is still throw it down. We all know about his knack for throwing down alley-oops, and ruining Timofey’s Mozgov’s pride.

Thoughts from an Educated Clippers Fan

As a Clipper fan I take great pride in the fact that my once small market Clippers are finally capable of competing with the large market teams in the league, such as the Lakers and Heat. For the past three seasons the Clippers have been slowly and methodically building a roster with the potential to make a deep playoff run. The motto is simple: we have our superstars (Paul &...

Clippers opener is a rivalry in the making

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. Tough losses fester, which is why the Memphis Grizzles have probably been counting the days until Wednesday night's season opener against the Clippers at Staples Center. The Grizzlies remember their grueling, physical seven-game playoff series loss to the Clippers last spring. Five months later, they get a chance for payback or a measure of it. "Any...

The Clippers will miss his tattoos as much as anything.

Zach Randolph Suplex on Blake Griffin (Video)

The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers clearly have some bad blood between them, but that in no way excuses the actions of Zach Randolph here.  What he did to Griffin flagrant and dangerous.  Randolph can’t even pretend like it was an accident or something that occurred during the play, it was just blatantly illegal.I would expect a fine coming, especially because it...

Hasheem Thabeet Channels His Inner Point Guard

Since being made the second overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2009, Hasheem Thabeet has recorded just 15 assists.  With his hilariously-poor assist-to-turnover ratio of .217, one doesn’t really expect Thabeet to make any sort of pass that ends up in the hands of a teammate, let alone a between-the-legs dish that leads directly to a scoring opportunity (and for his own team...
