His Airness turns 50 on Monday. So it’s only appropriate that the celebration begins during NBA All-Star weekend in Houston. Michael Jordan’s birthday soireé was held at the Museum of Fine Arts with an evening that consisted of a a private dinner for 100, a concert for 200 additional guests featuring R Kelly and of course the night ended on the dance floor. Who was on the scene? Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Lala, Beyonce and Jay Z, Chris and Adrienne Bosh, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Nas, singer Miguel and more.
The Los Angeles Clippers have gotten off to a hot start over the first half of the season, and this is in large part due to the play of point guard Chris Paul. The talented floor general showcased his abilities on the national stage last night, and his efforts earned him the title of MVP of the 2013 All-Star Game.Paul helped lead the West to a 143-138 victory over the East All-Stars...
Carmelo Anthony suffered a right arm contusion last night during the Knicks loss to the Toronto Raptors, and the injury may be significant enough to cause Melo to miss the All Star Game according to ESPN New York.
Anthony said he felt discomfort throughout the game, and said the bruising was deep. He emphasized he would not risk further injury, and was willing to sit out the game...
Chris Paul preferred a trade to the Clippers.
Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
Chris Paul had 24 points and 13 assists, Blake Griffin scored 18
of his 22 points in a spectacular first quarter, and the Clippers
cemented their supremacy in Los Angeles with a 125-101 victory over
the Lakers on Thursday night.
Tweet Remember when Lakers fans were ecstatic because it seemed a certainty the team would have a dream back court of Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant? Then the league stepped in and said “Not so fast”, shattering those hopes. To rub salt in the wound the Clippers ended up being the ultimate beneficiary as [...]
Duke or North Carolina? Both schools have storied traditions, outstanding coaches, and an atmosphere that other colleges can only dream of. Both schools figured that would be enough to bring Chris Paul into their basketball programs. Then Skip Prosser had something to say about it. “Wake Forest beat Duke after a big game, and I was a junior or senior in high school,” Paul said...
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...

The Eastern Conference may have the defending NBA Champs, but the All-Star Game in the last three seasons has belonged to the West.
This year’s game, like most All-Star Games, was played with little to no defense, as seen by the total points scored in each quarter by both teams: 57, 77, 78 and 69. In the second quarter, the East shot...
