Blake Griffin: Of course, he tried to spin it that way. After we beat Golden State, Sterling did the infamous interview with Anderson Cooper. Thankfully, commissioner Adam Silver had already taken quick action to ban him from the NBA for life. I was sitting in the trainer’s room getting treatment with Chris Paul during the Oklahoma City series when the interview came on the TV. Sterling looked at Cooper with no irony whatsoever and said, “Ask the players. My players love me!” CP and I looked at one another from across the room and just tried our best not to laugh. We were hoping after Silver’s decision that it was over, but the circus wouldn’t end. The first question I got asked at my locker the next day by a reporter was, “Blake, do you love Donald Sterling?” The Players' Tribune

Chris Paul wasn’t happy with the defense played by his team during its 112-94 loss to visiting Golden State on Tuesday in an exhibition opener. It wasn’t surprising, then, to hear Paul’s response Saturday morning when he was asked what he’d like to see from his team when it plays Sunday at Portland (6 p.m., Prime Ticket). “I’m hoping that we play defense a lot better,” Paul said. “You know, we’re trying to be a very unique team that defends very well and plays at a very nice pace, up-tempo. That’s not something that usually goes together like that, so we’re trying to put all the pieces together, and trying to keep that continuity going with both units.” Los Angeles Daily News

It was all part of the Clippers' blowing a seven-point lead in the final 49.2 seconds of Game 5 that sent the Clippers back to Staples Center facing an elimination game that they lost to end their season. Paul was so devastated he cried in the locker room afterward. Four months later, the emotional fallout lingers. "It would be lying to you to say I'd forgotten about it," Paul said during a break on set. "It's one of those things that I don't want to forget, to tell you the truth. I think for me, I feel like you have to remember things like that and therefore you don't want that feeling again. I know I don't." Los Angeles Times

Then I would like to say thanks to his beautiful wife, Tori, for sharing him with all of his fans and letting him play a game of basketball for the great city of Seattle at the pro-am on this weekend! Most guys would be lucky to play a game of basketball a week after getting married but Jamal’s wife let him and his friends – Chris Paul, Nate Robinson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Matt Barnes, Tony Wroten, Isaiah Thomas, Dejounte Murray, Wale, Will Conroy – have a pick-up game…at midnight…in front of a few thousand people! That’s love. From wife to husband, husband to fans, fans to the city. It was all love in Seattle last night. Just in case you were wondering who won.

After starring alongside his son in a spot last December, Los Angeles Clippers Chris Paul returns for an all-new Kids Foot Locker commercial. Last season's most generous passer plays on the trend of fans taking "selfies" with their favorite athletes and entertainers, except in this clip, he's the one after the memento. Paul rounds up neighborhood kids at local park for quick shoot, hoping to get photos with the stars of tomorrow. When an older gentleman approaches Paul for a selfie of his own, the comedy unfolds.

Roberts was the recommendation of NBPA president Chris Paul and the nine-member executive committee, winning with 32 of 34 votes among committee members and team player representatives, sources said. Yahoo! Sports

"It shows how open-minded our players are," NBPA president Chris Paul said. "With any of the candidates, it wasn't about race or gender. It was about who was going to be the best person in that position. From day one in interviews, she tackled every question head first. ... There were tough questions she was faced with. She didn't back away from them. She didn't shy away from them. She told us her story, and it really sat well with us." CBSSports.com

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul told ESPN.com that it's "unacceptable" if Donald Sterling is still the owner of the team when the season begins. Paul also said he has spoken to coach Doc Rivers about the possibility of sitting out if Sterling remains in control when the seasons starts in a little more than two months. "That's something me and Doc are both talking about," Paul said Thursday after coaching his AAU program, CP3. "Something has to happen, and something needs to happen soon -- sooner rather than later." ESPN.com

Interim Clippers CEO Dick Parsons testified earlier in the week in state court that Rivers told him on multiple occasions that he doesn't think he wants to continue coaching the team if Sterling remains in control of the franchise. "We're all going to talk about it," Paul said. "We're all definitely going to talk about it. Doc, Blake [Griffin], DJ [DeAndre Jordan]. It's unacceptable." ESPN.com
