NBA Star Filam Clarkson joining Gilas?

Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson attended Gilas Pilipinas practice on Wednesday night, leaving fans excited about the prospect of seeing him playing for the flag at the FIBA Asia Championship in September.

He is part of the 24-man pool submitted by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), but it remains to be seen whether he can represent the country as matters of his eligibility are still being ironed out.

Gilas coach Tab Baldwin warned against pinning too much hope on Clarkson wearing the country's colors soon, as they still have to wait for FIBA to process hiss documents.


Hornets play better, win more with Kidd-Gilchrist

Charlotte coach Steve Clifford can rattle off a dozen reasons why the Hornets gave small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist a big contract extension.

But in Clifford's mind it all came down to one basic fact: "When he's on the floor we play well; when he's not on the floor we don't."

The numbers bear that out.

The Hornets were 62-55 with Kidd-Gilchrist in the starting lineup the last two seasons and 14-33 without him.

"As much as anybody that we have had in the two years I've been here, he's been the guy that we can't play well without for any long period of time," Clifford said.


Clippers fined $250K for Jordan flap

The Los Angeles Clippers were fined $250,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for violating the league's rules while trying to re-sign DeAndre Jordan last month.

League rules prohibit teams from arranging for others to provide compensation for a player unless it is included in a contract or is otherwise permitted by the collective bargaining agreement.

Derrick rose accused of drugging and raping ex-girlfriend

Derrick Rose is being sued by a woman who claims the NBA superstar and two of his friends drugged and gang raped her.
