On their way to history, Clippers instead add to inglorious past

latimes.com — Into 31 years of their sordid Los Angeles history, the Clippers crumbled. Into 45 years of their awful franchise history, the Clippers collapsed.

latimes.com — Shortly before taking his place on the Clippers' bench with a sore leg for a second consecutive playoff game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, Chris Paul tried to look on the bright side.

Clippers teammates step up as Chris Paul watches from sideline

latimes.com — What's more amazing than the Clippers winning a playoff game with Chris Paul on one leg? How about winning one with Chris Paul on his butt? Two days after he carried them, they carried him. Two days after he limped them past the San Antonio Spurs, they danced without him against the Houston Rockets.

Chris Paul could barely walk but carries Clippers to Game 7 win

orlandosentinel.com — One more time, Chris Paul hobbled to the basket and attempted to leap. One more time, he grimaced through the pain and fell toward the floor and threw the ball toward the glass. One more time, for all the times they said he wasn't tough enough.

Once interrupted phone interview with Paul Tagliabue because toddler daughter shouted about waffle needing butter. He got it. Dads get it.
