Clippers are trying to follow the other LA team of 2010

The Golden State Warriors weren’t always elegant in their run to the 2015 NBA title, and goodness knows, Draymond Green frequently approached the line between “aggressive and dirty” on the court. He can be reckless at times. Yet, one would ultimately have to conclude that the Warriors had no knuckleheads on their roster. Championship teams generally don’t have knuckleheads...

Los Angeles Clippers: Attitude adjustments will be vital

Making Sense of the Hornets’ Offseason

Much was expected from the newly branded Charlotte Hornets this past season. After a somewhat surprising run to the playoffs in the previous season, in addition to the momentum gained from an offseason that involved signing Lance Stephenson, another strong playoff run was in their foreseeable future.

LISTEN: Lance Stephenson Returns to the Rap Game With 'Poppin'

At one time Lance Stephenson has the appearance of an up and coming NBA superstar, but with how he left Indiana and flopped in Charlotte unless he can get his game straightened out with the Clippers his most memorable moment may be blowing in LeBron's ear. It's a good thing he has a fall back career where the chance of success is as likely as making it in the NBA--rapping (sarcasm...

The Perfect Trade That Hurts Both Teams

Seriously, This HappenedLast week during the NBA Finals, the Clippers and Hornets pulled off a deal that might be my early favorite for best move of the year, in that I'm fairly sure that it leaves both teams worse for having made it. Charlotte gives up G/F Lance Stephenson, having just spent one year before wearing out his welcome in a wildly over the top way, to the Clippers for...

Lance Stephenson: I’m a good locker room guy

Earlier this week, the Clippers acquired Lance Stephenson from the Hornets in a move that raised a few eyebrows.

With Stephenson going to Clips, LeBron could try to recruit Pierce to Cavs this offseason

News broke yesterday that Charlotte guard Lance Stephenson had been traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Matt Barnes and Spencer Hawes. On the surface, the trade seems risky for the Clippers coming off Stephenson's highly disappointing season under Jordan's Hornets. They didn't give up much to get him though and he could end up being their missing cog. Lance is a superior...
