The Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz share "mutual interest" in a swap of Eric Bledsoe for Paul Millsap, according to ESPN.

Paul shares company with the the greatest point guards of all time.
Duke or North Carolina? Both schools have storied traditions, outstanding coaches, and an atmosphere that other colleges can only dream of.

Chris Bosh capped off his comical performance at Sunday night’s All-Star game by photobombing Chris Paul’s MVP photo:
Chris Bosh is not playing one of his best games right now during the first half of the NBA All Star game. Other than the continuos missed shots Bosh had, the most embarrassing had to be when Chris Paul dribbled between his legs. Bad thing is, Tony Parker did as well.
At the end of the first half the West lead 69-65, with Wade leading the east with 12 points and Durant leading...

These are serious questions your favorite NBA all star has to answer.
12,000 square feet seems to be just the correct amount of space for most...
