Chat With "The Voice of the Clippers" Ralph Lawler
On the Clippers No. 14 Draft Pick Al Thornton:
Perhaps the best thing he brings is an exceptional level of energy. He plays at 100% absolutely 100% of the time. His athleticism is second to none, and he can step outside and make the three-point shot and also get to the rim off the dribble. He is a great finisher, and I think this team will be able to run a little more when he's on the court. More...

Chat With Clippers Vice President of Basketball Operations Elgin Baylor
On the Clippers' Chances in the 2007 Playoffs:
Once you get to the playoffs, anything can happen. We just have to concentrate on what's in front of us right now, and at least maintain our position - or even improve on it. If we play well enough to accomplish that, we'll be pretty tough in the post-season. More...

Chat With ESPN.com’s "The Sports Guy" Bill Simmons
On Elton Brand so far this season:
I think EB played a 95-game season through the end of May, followed by the World Championships, and he's just worn out... he looks banged up and a step slow to me. Last night was the first night he looked like himself. He'll be fine. Don't worry about him unless he's killing your fantasy team. More...

On the Clippers’ chance to win the championship:
We definitely have an opportunity to win it all with this roster. I think the biggest thing now is to take it one game at a time. When we get to that position later on, we can talk about it. More...

Christian Bale is a great guy. He’s really down to earth, a great actor and I’m proud to say that I have had a chance to work with him. On the new additions of Aaron Williams and Tim Thomas, it’ll be great for our team. They’re both veteran players that really know how to play. More...

Clippers Head Coach Mike Dunleavy Sr. - Coaches Teleconference
On Shaun Livingston's Development:
He’s worked extremely hard this summer. He’s changed his shot around, changed his rotation on the ball, and he was very diligent, spending two or three hours a day this summer in the gym, working on it. And it’s really coming along. It’s only going to get better over the next couple of years. More...

Clippers Forward Tim Thomas – Training Camp Q & A
On teaming up with his former playoff rivals:
The first couple of days were awkward, but at the same time it’s cool because I grew up with most of the guys here... We’re just trying to get familiar with each other each and every day out there on the court, and the sooner we do that the better we’ll be. More...

On his off-season improvements and physical therapy:
I’ve done a lot of work all over the court to expand my range and I’ve done a lot of work off the glass. My shoulder’s doing really well, I’ve been seeing a physical therapist every day and it’s feeling really good. More...

Clippers Guard Shaun Livingston – Training Camp Q & A
On his expectations this season and changes from last year:
We expect to get back to the playoffs, but all of us want to go further. We had a chance to go further last season and we definitely want to excel on that this year. As for last season to this season, the biggest change is chemistry. We have to get the new guys used to playing with each other, to go out and execute and play defense. More...

Clippers Guard Daniel Ewing – Training Camp Q & A
On the tattoo on his upper arm:
It’s a tattoo of a black panther. He has a ball in his hands and it has a goal in the background, so it’s like he’s putting the ball in the hoop. It says “King of the Court.” This was one of my first tattoos. More...

Clippers Head Coach Mike Dunleavy Sr. – Training Camp Q & A
On the addition of Tim Thomas
Overall I think that Tim Thomas will be a great addition for us and that we have the ability to beat just about every team in this league. Having said that, I think that’s the expectations of our players. We really go into it thinking that we want to go all the way. We don’t want to limit ourselves to just one round, two rounds or any number of rounds. More...

On Trade Rumors Surrounding Corey Magette:
Sometimes the rumors are just ridiculous. In this case, it’s clear that they’re coming strictly from people who don’t know what’s really going on. Just to set the record straight: we are not trading Maggette. More...

On the Team's Chemistry:
Never underestimate the impact of good chemistry on the court and in the locker room in terms of success in wins and losses. When players want to play together, and are willing to do the things the coaches ask of them, it translates into wins. More...

One-on-One - Stanley Roberts
On how he got involved with basketball:
Growing up in Hopkins, SC, my older brother and my two uncles always played basketball. They would drag me to the court in the sweltering South Carolina heat and beat my behind good to make me tougher. More...
