It’s really cool. It’s a neat thing.” NBA.com

“We need the excitement in this city, and we need people to come out,” Rivers said. “Kids from all over the world are coming. We’ve got to get our hands in this, I think everybody in L.A. This is a really neat thing for the city of L.A., to showcase the city of LA, but more importantly for these kids. “The neatest thing is the pure stuff you get from the kids. They tell you the truth. There’s no filter, and their joy is amazing. They want to win, but a lot of them want to finish. It says a lot. I’m deeply involved, and I think it’s awesome that it’s coming to LA.” NBA.com

Doc Rivers will also look to build upon that new spirit and chemistry as the Clippers have two roster openings and may have a third depending on what they do with Jones' 10-day contract. Last season, Rivers was able to sign Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Danny Granger during the buyout seasons, and he expects to sign two veterans again next month. That was a big reason he made the moves that he did to free up the necessary room on a roster that was at the maximum 15 players earlier this month. ESPN.com

The value of the New York Knicks shot up 79% to $2.5 billion, ranking the team second overall (the Knicks edged out the Lakers last year). Ratings for Knicks games on MSG fell 29% as the team stumbled to a 37-45 record, but the team still drew the biggest TV audience in the NBA at 163,000 viewers per game on average.

Does Jordan get too little credit? "He's going to get a max contract this summer," Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick said. "That's a lot of credit."
