    Kevin Durant’s anti-social comments are a boon for NBA’s social media frenzy

    Intriguing, suspenseful and Santa Claus-fat with jolly surprises. The NBA was all those things and more this summer.

    Clippers schedule: Chris Paul makes his Staples Center homecoming Jan. 15

    Circle the date Jan. 15, 2018, in red ink. That’s when Chris Paul makes his Staples Center return to face the Clippers for the first time since they traded him to the Houston Rockets earlier this summer for a package of players that included fellow guard Patrick Beverley.
