Brandon Bass, Jamal Crawford Win NBPA's "Teammate Of The Year" Award

The Clippers kept their most popular teammate--and added another from across the hall. As part of this year's NBPA award voting, each player had a chance to anonymously vote for his team's "teammate of the year".  For the Clippers, Jamal Crawford won--not surprising given the consistently good things we hear regarding his character and manner with his teammates. Brandon Bass, who signed with the Clippers in July, was voted "teammate of the year" by his Lakers teammates last summer.  Bass played in 66 games off of the bench for a young, developing Lakers squad. Crawford also won the "Best...

Lakers vote Brandon Bass “Teammate of the Year”

Anyone looking for bad vibes from Bass can go fish. His teammates voted Brandon Bass as the “Teammate of the Year” Award winner for the Los Angeles Lakers, according to the NBA Player’s association. In a year in which the Lakers 17-65 record stood as the second-worst in the entire league, Bass (now with the Los Angeles Clippers) provided a solid veteran presence that helped keep the locker room from fracturing. In addition to being one of the Lakers’ most helpful players on the court, with the team only being outscored by 2.6 points per 100 possessions during his minutes, Bass was...

Where Are They Now: Willie Warren

"Where are they now" is a new series tracking the movements of former Clippers. First up, the somehow only 26 year old former co-star of Blake Griffin's at Oklahoma, Willie Warren. Willie Warren was the 54th pick in the 2010 draft, back in the days when the Clippers were an up-and-coming young squad instead of a veteran contender. A tall and athletic point guard, Warren was considered somewhat of a steal that late in the draft, but never really got much of a chance with the Clippers. The Clips had veteran starters in Baron Davis and then Mo Williams who soaked up most of the minutes at...
