Clippers miss memo: claim Billups off waivers

The Clippers have made a successful big on Chauncey Billups, who was amnestied by the Knicks last week. Under terms of the league’s amnesty police, any team under the salary cap can put bid on Billups. The Clippers put a bid of just over $2 million for Billups, according to Marc Stein.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Perhaps the Los Angeles Clippers missed the memo.

Veteran point guard Chauncey Billups warned teams not to claim him after he was amnesty waived by the New York Knicks.

Teams under the salary cap had first crack at claiming Billups, who wanted to go unclaimed so he could become a free agent and sign with a contender.

Mr. Big shot had his eyes on competitive squads like the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers.

So Billups joining the Clippers is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, Los Angeles’ other team is big on potential but light on results.

Second, there are rumors the Clippers will send several pieces to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Chris Paul. This would relegate to Billups to the bench on a team that would be good but hardly great.

Rumor: Clippers want Dwight Howard?

But while the Clippers like Paul, sources say they like Dwight Howard even more. The Clippers have made it clear to executives throughout the league that they will do whatever it takes -- outside of trading Griffin -- to get Howard, who will become a free agent at the same time as Paul, either this season or next summer.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They can chase him but he will not sign.

Dwight Howard will not opt-out of his contract with the Orlando Magic to sign as a free agent with the Los Angeles Clippers in July, 2012.

Yes, the Clippers have Blake Griffin, the next face of the NBA. They also have Donald Sterling, the worst owner in the NBA and perhaps pro sports.

Why would Howard, who presumably wants to win an NBA championship, willingly sign with an owner who has gone to court for racist policies, been accused of sexual harassment, and has no issue watching his players shower while on a date?

Talk about creepy.

Then there’s his alligator arms. For years, Sterling was content to lose with cheap talent and make money off luxury tax payments from league head office.

Sometimes he doesn’t honour contracts -even when he’s fired an employee. Isn’t that right Mike Dunleavy?

Winning starts at the top. And if Howard wants to win he shouldn’t sign with the Clippers because they have a dysfunctional owner who won't spend money.

Of course, if Howard wants to leverage his brand then he may consider Los Angeles’ other team. 
 
And then he’ll just have to live with Sterling, warts and all.

Rumor: Lakers want Baron Davis and Rashard Lewis?

The Lakers are curious to see if veteran point guard Baron Davis gets cut by Cleveland. He has two years and $28.7 million left on his contract, though he can be signed for substantially less than that. The Lakers also want a shooter and are monitoring whether forward Rashard Lewis (two years, $43.8 million remaining) gets waived by Washington.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s official name was the ‘amnesty clause’. It’s unofficial name was ‘team screwed up, overpaid said player, and now gets out of jail/contract free’.

Well, nothing is completely free.

As part of the 2004-05 CBA negotiations, teams could waive one player and his salary did not count against the cap. The team had to cover the contract, but increased financial flexibility and/or saved on luxury tax payments.

Remember, the Dallas Mavericks cut ties with Michael Finley‘s mammoth big-ticket, but the swing joined the rival San Antonio Spurs and won a championship.

So things can backfire.

Word is the new CBA has an amnesty clause. The Los Angeles Lakers are eyeing a couple of veterans, Baron Davis and Rashard Lewis, who are on the chopping block.

Davis is owed $30 million through 2014, which may be too much for the rebuilding Cleveland Cavaliers, especially with youngster Kyrie Irving in the fold.

Now Davis’ drive-and-kick style might suit Mike Brown’s system, however, the portly point guard was distracted during his time in Los Angeles with the Clippers.

Lewis is far more interesting. The Wizards are also starting over and have little interest in doling out more than $40 million over the next two seasons.

It’s quite possible the stretch-four gets waived and signs with a contender like the Lakers for the Mid Level Exception or a bargain salary.

All Lewis would have to do with the purple-and-gold is spot up, catch, and shoot. The burden of fulfilling a ridiculous contract would be gone.

So the Lakers could re-tool on the fly. And it may just happen because of the new CBA.

How Dangerous is Blake Griffin?
Monday , Sep , 05 , 2011 J.N.

How Dangerous is Blake Griffin?

I’m not talking about Javaris Crittenton dangerous. It’s more like “scary player can dominate the NBA like Jordan” dangerous. The kid right now is already in many people’s top ten lists. Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan, and Shawn Kemp were not THIS explosive. They were not this good early in their careers. Griffin is so good that I had to acknowledge that he might be a future triple double factory in this piece. Seriously, how great can this kid get without factoring in injuries like he sustained in his first year?

Rumor: Blake Griffin open to joining Thunder in 2014?

“We’ll see what happens,” Griffin said. “Right now my commitment is to the Clippers, and we’re working on making that team better. I know the Thunder are doing a great job here and everybody’s excited about them.”

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It sounds good. Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

And Griffin seemed open to signing with the Thunder when asked what he'll do when he becomes a restricted free agent in 2014.

This isn't just speculation; the dots do connect. 

First, the Thunder has a top player in Durant. Second, the Thunder is well-run -unlike Griffin’s current team, the Clippers. And finally, Griffin went to college in Oklahoma.

Unfortunately, Oklahoma City is one of the NBA’s smallest markets with few opportunities for marketing and branding. Los Angeles, even if Griffin is with the Clippers, is a massive market, which attracts sponsors.

So signing with the Thunder would be good for Griffin's NBA career, while staying with the Clippers would be good for his wallet.

Bottom line: rumors of Griffin’s departure will continue unless the NBA puts a franchise tag or other clauses in the new collective bargaining agreement.

Rumor: Blake Griffin wants ‘Clippers’ to play in Impact League?

According to Impact owner and renowned trainer Joe Abunassar, the Clippers' Blake Griffin, Mo Williams and Randy Foye came by last week and expressed a desire to enter the league with a team made up solely of their teammates.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Los Angeles Clippers are on the verge of a breakthrough.

Yes, I’m talking about those Clippers. Yes, I know their history. And yes, I know they are owned by Donald Sterling, also known as The Don or The Worst Owner in Pro Sports.

None of that matters, though.

The Clippers resemble the Sacramento Kings of yesteryear, specifically the 1998-99 lockout shortened season when a squad led by Chris Webber, Jason ‘White Chocolate’ Williams, and Vlade Divac went 27-23.

Those Kings not only entertained but possessed a togetherness that made them a force in the Western Conference for the next five years.

Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and the Clippers were a League Pass must-see last year, however, they also turned the corner and played some solid basketball.

Now reports indicate that the Clippers, as a team, want to join the new league that Impact Basketball is organizing for mid-September in Las Vegas.

So the Clippers are united; Griffin, their superstar, is leading. And L.A.’s other squad seems poised to take another step in 2012 -if there’s a season.

Rumor: Would Larry Brown burn the Celtics?

Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown has an interest in joining Doc Rivers’ Boston Celtics staff as an assistant coach, assuming Lawrence Frank accepts the Detroit Pistons' head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Larry Brown has burned more bridges than a pyromaniac serving a five year bid at Sing, Sing prison in upstate New York.

Brown is the nomad coach. When the going gets tough, he gets going. Or when he thinks the grass is greener on the other side, he goes to the other side.

Just ask the Charlotte Bobcats and Los Angeles Clippers or the Detroit Pistons and New York Knicks or the Philadelphia 76ers and those same Pistons.

Of course, this doesn't stop Brown from demanding his players 'Play The Right Way'. It doesn't matter that he's doing the opposite in front of them.

Despite the hypocrisy, Brown can teach youngsters. Unfortunately, the Boston Celtics are a veteran crew. Old heads like Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce won’t want to deal with the overbearing, impatient, and frustrating Brown.

Celtics head coach ‘Doc’ Rivers won’t be particularly enthused with Brown’s idiosyncrasies either -especially if he’s only using the defensive coordinator gig to showcase himself for a head coaching job.

Rivers and the Celtics should avoid Brown. He’ll burn them like he has so many other teams.

Rumor: Clippers to take run at Battier?

The Clippers have cap room and also need a three and what he (Battier) can bring defensively.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They’re still the Clippers.

When the lockout ends, Shane Battier, the top free agent on the market, will pass on Los Angeles’ ugly step-sister of a team and sign with a contender.

To be fair, the Clippers have talent –loads of talent, in fact. There’s dunk machine and rising superstar Blake Griffin. And he has plenty of help in Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan, Chris Kaman and Mo Williams.    

Unfortunately, Donald Sterling, also known as ‘The Don’, isn’t going anywhere. He still runs the Clippers like a sad soap opera.

‘The Don’ has been accused of or sued for sexual harassment and racist practices. He also watched players shower, heckled players from his courtside seat, and told reporters he ‘never heard of’ the club’s free agent signings.

Battier knows the Clippers can’t contend because they’re dysfunctional at the top. Such poor behaviour and professionalism infects the GM, coach, and players. Regardless of their intentions, they can’t avoid ‘The Don’.

So Battier will consider the Heat and say thanks-but-no-thanks to the Clippers –because of ‘The Don’.

Mo Williams: ‘Dallas just healed my heart’

Mo Williams: 'Dallas just healed my HEART........'

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Friend turned foe piles on.

In Cleveland, LeBron James and Mo Williams were tight. They formed a terrific starting backcourt, and had swagger and confidence to spare.

Until The Decision went down last July. 

Everything changed when James hired Jim Gray, went on ESPN, and announced he was ‘taking his talent’ to South Beach. The world started to hate -including Williams.

Should Williams hate?

Sure, the new table-setter for the Los Angeles Clippers has a right to feel frustrated with how James left. Perhaps he and Cav-nation deserved better than being dumped on national television like a second-rate reality show.

Williams can’t criticize James for what he did. Leaving was his right as an unrestricted free agent. No co-star was coming to Cleveland, no matter what owner Dan Gilbert claims.

For James it was simple: continue playing with the likes of Candace Parker’s brother in Ohio or head south, partner with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and challenge every year for a championship.

Of course, something else may have happened behind the scenes. Something we don’t know about.

Bottom line: Williams should keep quiet. Kicking a former teammate, even one as cocky and arrogant as James, when he’s down isn’t a good look.

Rumor: Andre Iguodala for Rudy Gay or Chris Kaman?

Some league folks have hinted that the Sixers and Memphis Grizzlies could discuss a swap of Iguodala for Memphis' injured star Rudy Gay. The Grizzlies are making an impact in the Western Conference playoffs without Gay, who went down with a shoulder injury late in the season.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It would appear the Philadelphia 76ers are preparing to cut ties with the versatile Andre Iguodala.

This rhetoric is nothing new. Prior to this year, the 76ers underachieved and much of the blame was placed at the feet of their highly paid swing.
 
And the result was constant trade chatter. There was no market for Iguodala’s long-term contract, though. He earned a superstar wage, while being merely a good player.
 
In 2011, Iguodala became Collins’ Renaissance man, doing everything well. He rebounded, defended, blocked shots, set up teammates, and scored.
 
Unfortunately, the 76ers now need a first-option scorer. Not a poor man’s Scottie Pippen. So Iguodala is being dangled as trade bait to land either the Memphis Grizzlies’ Rudy Gay or the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Kaman.
 
Gay and Kaman can play. Both are terrific scorers, but have become expendable due to the dynamics of their club changing. The Grizzlies are building around Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, while the Clippers like the athletic DeAndre Jordan at the five.
 
Gay’s contract is a match to Iguodala’s on a per year basis. Both are scheduled to earn $13.5 million in 2012, but Gay has a longer term. Meanwhile, Kaman is only on the books for 2012 at $10 million.
 
Iguodala finally came close to fulfilling expectations in Philadelphia, and, ironically, his reward seems to be a one-way ticket out of town.

It’s that time again for the regular season end awards just like any other television sports show. It is time to pass out the awards. Rather than giving awards for the usual categories such as Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, Executive of the Year….you get the picture…..let’s focus on categories that truly need to be highlighted – categories that I make up!

Mo Williams: Derek Fisher is the ‘Hines Ward of the NBA’

The Lakers defeated the Clippers by a 112-104 final on Friday night. On Saturday, Williams delivered a Tweet about Derek Fisher in obvious reference to the confrontation at the end of the game. "If yall didn't know, D Fish is the Hines Ward of the NBA," wrote Williams. "I don't know if that's a compliment or not. But don't let that nice guy fool u."

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Tough guy on the court. Nice guy off it.

This describes Derek Fisher, veteran guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. The same eloquent spokesperson for the Player’s Union used to scrap Kobe Bryant when both were rookies with the purple-and-gold playing one-on-one full court.

Yes, there’s plenty of bark to Fisher’s bite. Always has been, too.

This has helped him win five championships and even mediate the tension between Kobe and Shaq when their World Wars were front page news.

So Chris Kaman and Mo Williams shouldn’t be surprised and show such emotion over an incident in a regular season derby match between the Clippers and Lakers.

A few days back, Kaman felt Fisher led with an elbow on a screen. The seven-footer was ejected, but not before motioning to Fisher to meet him in the parking lot after the game for what can best be described as a ‘discussion’. 

(Kaman and Fisher ... 'Let's get ready to rumble'.)

Williams declared viral jihad on D-Fish, questioning his nice guy persona in a tweet. Perhaps Kaman and Williams were right. Perhaps they were wrong.

Elbows and flops are part of Fisher’s repertoire. It has helped him parlay a decent skill-set into a long and successful career.

Opponents can debate whether Fisher's a nice guy. However, there’s no debate that he's a winner.

Anaheim dangling $75 million in front of Kings

Anaheim officials would issue $75 million in bonds to lure the Kings from Sacramento, according to city documents released today.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Sacramento Kings fans better enjoy NBA basketball while they can.

Word is the city of Anaheim will give the Maloofs, who own the Kings, $75 million to leave Sacramento and relocate to Disneyland. The money would go to stadium upgrades and moving or ‘transition’ costs.

The money would also ease the cost of any relocation fee to be paid to the two Los Angeles teams, the Lakers and Clippers.

Sadly, the Kings look to be done with Sacramento. A decade ago, Vlade D, C-Webb, White Chocolate, and J-Will were the toast of the NBA.

However, the NBA is now for the filthy, filthy rich. Very rich owners like the Maloofs can no longer compete unless they have modern stadiums to generate sufficient revenue.

Apparently, Sacramento and Arco Arena won't do. Or, perhaps they just won't spend taxpayer money on stadiums for basketball.

Video: JaVale McGee gets revenge on Blake Griffin with deadly block

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Revenge is best served cold. Or with a deadly swat.

About a month ago, the Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin topped the Washington Wizards’ JaVale McGee to win the Slam Dunk Contest.

Griffin won the competition with his memorable car leap, neutralizing McGee’s effort, which included having his mother give cheek pecks (and a little something more to Dr. J) to the judges.     

Last night McGee got revenge. Well, sort of. He swatted the you-know-what out of a Griffin shot attempt.

Of course, Griffin’s Clippers beat McGee’s Wizards in triple overtime. And the sure-fire Rookie of the Year candidate also dropped a triple-double in the victory.

McGee had his moment, though. Watch the clip and get at us with thoughts on his incredible block in the comment box below.

Charge or Block? Should Blake Griffin’s dunk on Marcin Gortat have counted?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: What a waste of a poster job!

Yesterday, Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin caught the ball off a pick-and-roll, elevated, and dunked on the Phoenix Suns’ Gortat, who, to his credit, was bravely providing help defense.

Hold off on the youtube clip.

The referees believed Gortat was set, so they called a charging foul on Griffin. The infraction was the Rookie of the Year candidate’s sixth, meaning he had fouled out the game.

Worst of all, it negated a facial of epic proportion.

To be fair, the play happened quickly; however, the zebras in black-and white missed that Gortat’s feet were inside the circle.

Translation: Gortat should’ve been called for a block, and Griffin’s highlight reel jam should’ve counted.

What do you think? Charge or block? Watch the clip and get at us in the comment box below with thoughts!

Rumor: Blake Griffin concerned with Clippers owner Donald Sterling?

Blake Griffin is concerned with the way Donald Sterling manages the Clippers and is monitoring the situation, according to sources.

Sterling recently testified in Elgin Baylor's lawsuit against the Clippers for wrongful termination and the owner also had a mishap related to an advertisement for Black History Month that was actually scheduled for March and included Griffin's picture.

 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Good for Blake Griffin. He has recognized the obvious: the Los Angeles Clippers’ greatest weakness is owner Donald Sterling.

After all, The Don has been embroiled in sexual harassment and discrimination suits, refuses to honour contracts of coaches and executives that he fires, and is more concerned with winning making money than winning.

Simply put, he’s a scumbag. And great teams typically have great owners. Not scumbags.

For instance, the San Antonio Spurs have a partnership of first-class businessman. The Boston Celtics owner is all class. And Jerry Buss, despite his idiosyncrasies and poor decisions, is perfect for the glitz and glamour of the Los Angeles Lakers.

So Griffin is right to try to use his skill and star power to initiate change at the top. Championship teams have stability and sanity at the top.

They don’t have an owner who is so cheap he won’t pay his assistant coach’s cancer bills when the team’s medical provider refuses to do so.

The Don must reform his ways if he wants to sign the NBA’s brightest young star to a multi-year extension. Even better, perhaps he has to finally sell the Clippers if his team wants to re-sign Griffin.

And this, not the highlight reel dunks or headlines, would be Griffin’s greatest accomplishment.

Sacramento Kings to become Anaheim Royals?

On March 3rd, the United States Patent and Trademark Office received an application by a Nevada corporation seeking exclusive rights to use the name "Los Angeles Royals." Another application filed the same day reserves the name "Anaheim Royals." The city of Anaheim, which owns the Honda Center, has reportedly insisted that any team playing there carry the city's name.

The web domains losangelesroyals.com and anaheimroyals.com have also been registered within the past three weeks. A name change would help the team avoid confusion with the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League.

Link

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They are about to become the NBA team formerly known as the Sacramento Kings.

Recent evidence suggests Sacramento is on the verge of moving to the Anaheim/Los Angeles area, and owners Geoff and Gavin Maloof have officially trademarked the name Royals.

While Sacramento has obvious arena challenges, can Los Angeles really support three professional basketball franchises? Furthermore, is being the third fish in the Anaheim/Los Angeles pond behind the Clippers and Lakers better than being the only fish in the tiny Sacramento pond?

Clearly, the Kings think so. And it seems Sacramento’s NBA team is about to become no more.

Rumor: Rockets would have accepted Baron Davis, lottery pick for Yao Ming?

The Clippers could have traded Baron Davis and their number one pick in the 2011 NBA Draft that was used to acquire Mo Williams and Jamario Moon in a similar deal for the expiring contract of Yao Ming, according to Bill Simmons.

 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Why was there such a market for Baron Davis?

Sure, he has some talent. When healthy and motivated, Davis has the skill set to still be a decent point guard.

Here’s the problem: he’s rarely healthy and/or motivated. He signed with the Los Angeles Clippers as a free agent, but seemed more interested in making films and filling out his physique than winning games.

Davis couldn’t even get motivated when paired with Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon, and the young exciting Clippers of 2011.

Now suppose Davis gets in reasonable shape. He won’t be the same player who orchestrated that magical run for the Golden State Warriors.

We Believe was back in 2006-07. That cram on Andrei Kirilenko was a lifetime ago.

Simply put, Davis is not the same player. And he never will be, either. But GMs clearly expect him to regain his form because he has another two years and $29 million remaining on his contract.

They are mistaken. The usualy wise Houston Rockets dodged a bullet. Expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to learn this the hard way.

Oly Sandor.
