LOS ANGELES Plenty of teams would envy them this.
Plenty of good teams.
Plenty of teams that made it past the first round of the playoffs this spring, even.
This, of course, being Chris Paul and Dwight Howard and the Clippers and Lakers waiting games, respectively.
Dont get me wrong, having the best chance to sign Paul and Howard is hardly a bad thing for the two Los Angeles...
DRAW 'EM TO DALLAS
With the Mavericks missing the playoffs for the first time since 2000, Dirk Nowitzki hopes the team sets its sights on either Dwight Howard or Chris Paul.
LOS ANGELES -- After an All-Star season in which he led the NBA in steals, with 2.4 per game, Clippers point guard Chris Paul was named on Monday to the NBA All-Defensive First Team.
Paul received 37 total votes (15 first place and seven second place) from the leagues coaches, who vote for the award. Joining him on the First Team are Miamis LeBron James, Oklahoma Citys Serge Ibaka...

Chris Paul has yet to commit to re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers, but it is considered a probable outcome.

After Chris Paul was ejected from Game Six in the Los Angeles Clippers’ first round series against the Memphis Grizzlies, some wondered if that was going to be the last image of Paul in a Clipper uniform. Paul has the option of signing a five-year, $107 million extension with the team this summer or he can test out free agency and see where he ends up. If he decides to explore...
DALLAS -- A working thesis: The Mavs' No. 1 free-agency target this summer is Chris Paul. Besides moving Heaven and Earth to bring the stellar point guard to Dallas, what financial moves would the Mavs need to make in order to clear the room for a max contract? If you know the way the rules work, it's easier than you think:

GAME OVER, MAN
Tweet Many believed the Los Angeles Clippers-Memphis Grizzlies series would be one of the best in the first round, and thanks to some last-second heroics that may be true. Check out Chris Paul going to work to give the Clippers a 2-0 series lead: Plays like that are what make CP3 the best point guard [...]
