Jordan made only 39.7 percent of his free throws this season, making him one of the league’s most frequent targets of the intentional “hack.” “Hopefully, we won’t have to use that tactic,” Spurs guard Danny Green said after Friday’s practice session. “Hopefully, we play good basketball and aren’t in a position we have to use it.” Jordan fully expects to spend lots of time shooting playoff foul shots. “It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won,” Jordan told reporters in Los Angeles. “I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready.” San Antonio Express-News

In his six trips to the playoffs, Paul’s never gotten to the conference finals. He’s 3-3 in the first round, 0-3 in the second. And this time of year, that fact tends to get brought up. And then it gets brought up again – and then again. “It’s not a secret,” Paul said. Paul hasn’t forgotten, either. But he doesn’t need to be reminded. And, he doesn’t need the motivation. “I’m funny. I’m one of those people, I don’t need anything to drive me,” Paul said. “I’m going to play regardless. “Win it, lose it, say I’m the best, say I’m the worst. I’m going to play.” Orange County Register

Paul took sole responsibility for that loss, and Paul’s critics cite it as an example when reminding people CP hasn’t made it to round three. “Chris is not the reason the Clippers have not advanced. He’s not even close,” said analyst and former NBA player Charles Barkley. “But, we have to blame somebody. That’s the way it is when you’re a star. “... When you’re a star, you’re going to get the blame. But, you don’t have to take that personally. You have to be smart enough to know ‘Man, I’m not the reason we’re losing.’” Orange County Register

The Clippers are considering introducing a new logo, colors and uniform as early as this off-season. Photos of the potential new uniforms are being posted on the Internet. "I've seen it but I haven't really looked at it, to be honest," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said before practice Friday. "I couldn't even tell you how it looked. I don't mind change. I think change is good, right?" Los Angeles Times

“The word Clippers means something now," Ballmer said in November. "It didn’t mean much probably a year and half ago but it means something today. If I was to give you my visceral view, my track record is on display. Here we are, 30 years later and Windows is still called Windows. It hasn’t changed its name.” Los Angeles Times

Gary Washburn: The #rockets win the #tiebreaker with the #clippers for the 27th pick. That means the #Lakers will pick 27th and the #celtics 28th. The #lakers have #rockets first-round pick because of Jeremy Lin trade while #celtics have the #clippers first-rounder in Doc Rivers swap. Twitter @GwashburnGlobe

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the Clippers are definitely going with the entire graphics package that was shown to me by Source One. But it probably means that they’re going with something pretty close to it. With that caveat in mind, here’s what Source One originally sent to me. Another source has confirmed that these Clippers designs are legit. (PHOTOS) Uni-Watch.com
