Clippers Draft Targets: Making a case for Thon Maker

Here is the case for the Los Angeles Clippers using a pick in the 2016 NBA Draft to select Thon Maker. Will the reward be bigger than the risk? “With the 25th (or 33rd) pick in the 2016 NBA draft, the Los Angeles Clippers select, Thon Maker, Orangeville Prep”  (in my best Adam Silver voice.)

Should the Clippers re-sign Luc Richard Mbah a Moute?

The Clippers plucked Luc Mbah a Moute off the scrap heap just ahead of training camp, but he eventually grew into a valuable part of the 2015-16 club. Given his defensive prowess, should the Clips bring him back for a second season? Robert Flom (@RichHomieFlom): The Clippers will probably only bring back one of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute or Wes Johnson. And I would prefer Wes. While...

Players the Los Angeles Clippers should sign this offseason

It seemed as if the Los Angeles Clippers could not catch a break in the 2016 NBA Playoffs. When Stephen Curry left game four against the Houston Rockets with a knee injury, it seemed as if a window of opportunity was open for the Clippers to advance to the Western Conference finals or maybe even the NBA finals. However, with the injuries to both Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, that...

Clippers work out some familiar names

PLAYA VISTA – They have famous names, but the Roman numerals behind them should make something clear. A.J. English III is not the man who played for the Washington Bullets in the early ’90s, and Gary Payton II isn’t the man who defended and...

J.J. Redick does not agree with Kyle Lowry’s decision to head to the locker room toward the end of the first half of his team’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night.

Doc Rivers on the Clippers: ‘We’re close, and we know that’

Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers were nowhere near close to 100 percent when they were defeated in Game 6 of their first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers last week. After all, the team lost both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin for the playoffs during Game 3 of that series. This came with the Clippers up 2-0 on Portland. They’d then go on to lose the final...

Austin Rivers was the real Game 6 MVP despite Clippers loss

“Here’s my knock on Rivers. He thinks he’s Kobe. He’s not. He doesn’t have the length, the height, nor the athletic ability… [Damian] Lillard is a willing passer. Rivers isn’t and will never be… I just don’t see Rivers ever being anywhere near as unselfish or efficient. I think Rivers will be shocked at the athleticism and length at his position.” These were...

The Clippers Offseason Plan Nobody is Talking About

Rebuilds among 53-win teams are a rarity. Generally, that sort of record indicates contention. But 53-win teams usually don’t finish 20 wins behind their conference leader. The Golden State anomaly changes the way teams have to think about roster construction. Not only did they just win 73 games, but their best player is only 28. Their two other All Stars, Draymond Green and Klay...

In defeat, Austin Rivers wins more than a moment can measure

When Austin Rivers came to the Los Angeles Clippers, it was impossible to ignore — whether founded or not — the idea that coach and general manager Doc Rivers was trying to advance his son’s career. The inclination to think that favoritism was at the root of Doc’s decision was understandable. Moreover, Doc certainly does play favorites; how else to explain the acquisition...

Austin Rivers has been heavily criticized throughout his NBA career, but no basketball fan can speak ill of the effort he gave during Friday night’s playoff loss to the Portland Trailblazers. Rivers, filling in for the injured Chris Paul, scored 21 points and dished out eight assists, grabbed six rebounds, and didn’t turn the ball over on the night. He finished +2 overall in...

The Importance Of Chris Paul To The Los Angeles Clippers

The rivalry between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors has come to a head over the past few seasons due to both teams' recent success.

According to Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding, Griffin was aware that it was a “strong possibility” that he would re-tear his left quadriceps tendon if he tried to return for the playoffs, but elected to do so anyway. The quad, of course, was the injury...
