Blake Griffin didn't shoot, and Chris Paul was ticked off. Paul is in the business of finding open shots for teammates. It's a vocation he loves and performs better in than anyone alive, and he even delivered a manifesto on the subject on Saturday after the Clippers' win over Chicago. "My job as a point guard is to make the other team think I'm trying to score," Paul said. "I'm not bad at that. That's my main objective. I can get two people on me, and then I'm able to throw it back to Blake, and once that continues, we become that....

Really good article. How can you not love this team?!? I love Hollins and Turiaf off the bench btw. Wish they would've gotten a tiny shout out. I noticed Caron and Willie seemed to be forgotten in this article.

Good read, I feel bad he didn't mention we're not even at full power though, when we get our oh so precious Mr. BigShot back we'll be even more deadly!

This is an incredible piece of sportswriting.

I'd say that about once per season we find an article that is fairly unbiased, insightful and really gets at the heart of the team. These tend not to be stat-driven pieces (Hollinger, I'm looking at you) because, as Arnovitz says, there's much more at stake here than stats.

I'm not usually a huge fan of Kevin's. Some of his past stuff has really rubbed me the wrong way (not hard when you're a Clipper fan), but I want to give him some props on this one.

Well, done Kev. Keep up the good work.

Oh, and I just want to thank Ron, Mistwell and all the other guys who give us the Insider stuff. I think I speak for everyone here when I say, we all truly appreciate it.

I am an old fart and for most of my life you hear about team chemistry and camaraderie and you think sometimes it's real,,sometimes its just propaganda bullcrap. Bullcrap in the sense that everyone I watch are professional athletes and are doing what they get paid to do. I saw a glimps of it when I was a new NBA fan in 1980 with the Fakers,,but I think they had something but as far as off the court they were just guys that did their own things. I see it in Trojan football and college sports in....

God, why are you so angry about the Trojans. I am a die hard Bruin fan and I feel as if you Trojan Fans will never be happy. Your school is a power house of a football program they have given you a lot, and Kiffin did a greta job of weathering that sactioned year. Cant win em all Ron. Look at it this way. Who, aside from maybe Notre Dame and Alabama, has the number of National Championships USC does? Appreciate the legacy Ron...you'll be allright, let the Bruins have their time in the sun:)
