Ball Don't Lie:
When the NBA (and not the New Orleans Hornets) traded Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday evening, it was the end of a needlessly long and embarrassing saga.
When the Los Angeles Clippers received Chris Paul from the NBA on Wednesday evening? It was the start of a whole lot of fun. Watch Clippers DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin go bonkers after hearing the news:
You're right, Blake. It is "Lob City." Not as good as "Radio City," but we're looking forward to each and every Clipper game this year nevertheless.
The best part of the video? Someone asking who the Clippers gave up to receive Paul from the NBA, and Griffin shouting "we don't care!" Not the best reaction, but certainly the most appropriate. We agree with Blake -- it's Chris Paul, it doesn't matter who you lost.

New Orleans Hornets officials say they've excused Chris Paul from a normally mandatory preseason media event.
Hornets spokesman Dennis Rogers says the decision to keep the star guard away from Wednesday's event at the New Orleans Arena was mutual.
Paul has not spoken to reporters since reporting for training camp last Friday.
The Hornets have sought to trade the four-time...
Check out LA Clippers star forward Blake Griffin nailing a shot from a little past half court while sitting down. This video was caught during the early days of Clippers training camp. Griffin is known for his high flying dunks, now maybe he wants to join the trick shot video era? I say stick to what you do best, but you can't argue with results.

Chris Paul is headed to Los Angeles for real this time _ to the Clippers, not the Lakers.
DeAndre Jordan gets “the call” while at a Clippers event at a Los Angeles elementary school. Then, he and Blake Griffin get very excited. And a cameo from Caron Butler, who may very soon be welcomed to L.A.’s starting lineup.

The Clippers have agreed to pick up the All-Star point guard from New Orleans in a blockbuster deal that includes sending Eric Gordon to the Hornets.
The Clippers have acquired 26-year old point guard Chris Paul and two future 2nd round picks from the Hornets for 22-year old shooting guard Eric Gordon, 29-year old center Chris Kaman, 21-year old small forward Al-Farouq Aminu and the Timberwolves’ first round pick in 2012. Chris Paul played in 80 games (all starts) for the Hornets last year and he averaged 36.0 minutes, 15...
The deal that everyone has been waiting for is now done. Chris Paul is going to Los Angeles, but not as a Laker Yes, there is another team in Los Angeles besides Kobe Bryant’s Lakers. (Trust me, until Blake Griffin came along I didn’t realize they existed either). After the initial trade to the Los [...]
That's a painful headline to write, and especially inconceivable after the histrionics that followed the NBA's veto of a deal that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers last week. It was a power trip, a violation of Dell Demps's autonomy, and maybe even an anti-trust violation: and as it turns out, a shrewd move by a man inured to...
A week after NBA Commissioner David Stern killed a deal that would send Chris Paul to the Lakers in a 3-team deal, the Hornets have worked out a deal to send the disgruntled star to the LA Clippers. The Clippers will send guard Eric Gordon, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center Chris Kaman and a first-round draft choice to the Hornets; the Clippers may be receiving 2 second round draft...
