NBA All-Stars shine in LA, leaving Lakers, Clippers wondering who might return
He knows, too, that whatever he says is going to be dissected, parsed and studied, the outside world trying to get a read on his future by analyzing his words.

And in Cleveland, things are desperate. The Cavs are zeroing in on a potential DeAndre Jordan trade with the Clippers, even if it will cost them the pick.
Helping the Cavs’ cause has been the way Brooklyn has collapsed lately. Back on Jan. 3, the Nets were only eight games below .500 and slated to have the No. 10 pick in June. Brooklyn has gone 4-14 since then, and have moved up to No. 8 �� just one game off the mark for the league’s worst record.
There was some concern because Brooklyn is a team that plays hard and wasn’t as bad as everyone thought, at least in terms of their record, one league executive said.
