I don't want to take all of the credit for bringing the Clippers together; like Chris Paul, I'm more interested in the assist.
But as soon as I got on the guys for losing sight of the finish line, they won a division title.
You can look it up —...

On farewell day, they waved until their hands hurt.
Kobe Bryant pleaded for Lakers management to pay millions to Dwight Howard, millions to Pau Gasol, millions for the luxury tax, anything to keep the Lakers together for the final year of his contract....

Oh me, oh my. Finally, the payoff.
And I'm not even talking about Chris Paul's exhilarating, awesome, magical, 93-91 game-winner.
I begin with Lamar Odom, who is my favorite athlete, and apparently Blake Griffin's as well. Griffin has come running off...

While the Lakers go through their daily dramas on the court and off, the Clippers are gaining confidence and beginning to explore their boundless potential.

The first half ended with a sense of impending opportunity lost.
This was the Clippers versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was also the NBA in November, which has a history and significance of entertainment value along the lines of the horseshoe...

RATHOLE, TENN. — I survived, but the Clippers did not.
Matt Barnes kicked the bucket.
The trash bucket. As a result, there was garbage flying everywhere Saturday as the Clippers trudged off the court looking every bit the 21-point miserable...

The world as Lakers fans know it ending because their heroes apparently will need time to adjust, I thought I would check with someone who went through the same thing a year ago.
But what a difference in producing instant pizzazz, Chris Paul doing the...

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — I've put my life on the line to be here in this rathole with our Clippers.
And so I expect more than what I got from them Thursday in a rather flat 12-point loss to Memphis in Game 3.
The Clippers played a step slow, as if...

RATHOLE, Tenn. — Made it.
Got a ride back to the hotel Thursday night after the Clippers' collapse, the final 10 yards covered on foot in a dash to the door. It was touch and go, but bravery won out.
On Friday, there was daylight here. So I took...

Vinny Del Negro playfully bulled his way through a scrum of reporters Monday afternoon to reach a designated interview area, showing more toughness than any of his players had the previous six days.
Were you watching, DeAndre Jordan?

Obviously, Vinny Del Negro had to be asked whether the Clippers were holding something back on their recent trip while losing three in a row.
That will probably sail right over the heads of UCLA fans who still seem preoccupied watching replays of Jim...
