So much for that dropoff without Chris Paul.

Melo: Paul should be with Kobe 

When it came to barring Chris Paul from joining the Lakers, David Stern had it all wrong, says Carmelo Anthony. Unlike the NBA commissioner, who prevented Paul from going to the Lakers in a trade three weeks ago, the Knicks’ superstar believes it would have benefited everyone had Paul wound up playing in the same backcourt with Kobe Bryant.

No Chris Paul, no problem.

Trail Blazers-Clippers Preview

Los Angeles couldn't win Chris Paul's first regular-season home game as a Clipper. The Clippers' chances of bouncing back with a victory Sunday night don't appear all that promising. As they continue a four-game homestand, the Clippers will welcome a Portland Trail Blazers team that's seeking its best start in 12 seasons and a sixth consecutive win in the series...

Celtics Drop to 0-3 Without Paul Pierce After Falling to Hornets

NEW ORLEANS -- Jarrett Jack's first regular-season start since the Chris Paul trade was more than good enough for the New Orleans Hornets. Jack had 21 points and nine assists in his season debut, and New Orleans dominated in its home opener, beating the winless Boston Celtics 97-78 on Wednesday night. The Celtics are 0-3 for the first time since 2006-07, the season before they...

Video: Kevin Harlan is in midseason announcing form

Faithful television-watching basketball fans have long known that TNT play-by-play announcer Kevin Harlan is kind of a crazy person. To be fair, he is arguably our favorite kind of crazy person — the kind who legitimately seems very happy to be calling games, who describes the action on the floor well and accurately without being dry, and who knows how to meet big moments with...

Making the case for Rajon Rondo as a franchise player

We keep hearing rumors that Rajon Rondo is on the trade block — it had been for Chris Paul but the Celtics will listen to other offers, too. They are not going to move him for just anyone, but he’s not the easiest player to get along with and Boston is keeping its options open.…

Chicago Bulls 114, Los Angeles Clippers 101

The Clippers shot 51.3% from the floor last night but it didn’t matter in the end.  The Bulls shot 50% from the floor and they outrebounded the Clippers 45-31 last night which helps explain the loss.  Blake Griffin had a monster night for the Clippers with 34 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal.  Caron Butler (16 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists and 1 steal) and Chris Paul...
