Silver talked about it in more detail with Howard Beck of Bleacher Report in a video interview (it’s worth watching all of it, they cover some other interesting topics). “I and others at the league office have spent a lot of time studying the Champions League for European soccer and other types of cups and mid-season tournaments,” Silver said in the interview. “Now there there’s a long tradition, but maybe there’s the opportunity to create a new tradition. And to create more competitions. Right now everything is about the Larry O’Brien trophy but soccer operates a little differently, they have different cups, which may not be as important as the championship but in their own right are highly significant. “Those are not the kinds of changes that are going to happen in a year, or maybe even in two or three years, but they are the kinds of development for the league that needs to be studied over time.” NBCSports.com

This is a perfect time for Jordan to be the key piece of a contender. He’s coming off the best season of his career. He’s in better shape than he’s ever been in. And he’s in the final year of four-year, $43 million contract. “It’s just another season. I don’t want to think about it like that,” Jordan insists. “I don’t think about it like that.” Orange County Register

L.A. Clippers President Doc Rivers knows recruiting can be tough ... which is why he's already calling DIBS on LeBron James' and Dwyane Wade's kids!! Rivers was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood Monday night when we asked if he thinks Bron's or D-Wade's sons had a shot to make the NBA when they grow up. FYI -- LeBron has two boys (10 and 7) who are already generating serious buzz in the basketball world ... and Dwyane's boys have been ranked as some of the top youth prospects in the country. "I want rights to all their kids," Doc said. TMZ.com

Since the immediate move, I arrived and got a good vibe for Dallas. It truly feels like home. Everyone here complements each other (on and off the court) and for the first time in a long time I am really excited about basketball again. I think it has been well documented that the two teams that had the most interest in me (and that I had the most interest) were the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavs. My meetings and workouts with Coach Doc and his staff were first class. That being said, there was something about Dallas that simply felt right. I can’t really explain it... Anyway, I am going to keep riding this roller coaster until the end...and then probably get back on because life is a roller coaster...you can’t quit, but it's important to enjoy the ride. Gotta believe...things happen for a reason. Always evolving... Charlie Villanueva

From that inquiry emerged a very hot topic — rebounding, or lack thereof. The Clippers were outrebounded 49-39 by the Trail Blazers. They were outrebounded 371-289 overall in eight exhibition games. “I don’t know what they are, other than rebounding,” Rivers said when asked his areas of concern. “That was it coming into the year, that’s still it. I thought it was a miracle, personally, that we did what we did last year with the way we rebounded. I was worried about it all year, worried about it going into the playoffs. It’s hard to win games when the other team keeps getting the extra shots. Whittier Daily News
