The much-talked about NBA rookie wall has been more like a speed bump for the Clippers' Eric Gordon. One of those disruptive moments, however, came Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets. Gordon was one for 10 from the field and finished with seven points in 35-plus minutes. He said he was tired and described his play as "awful." He has a way of getting those games out of his system -- and quickly.

An arbitrator on Friday awarded a little more than $13 million to former Clippers' general manager and coach Mike Dunleavy, who the team stopped paying when he was fired as general manager in March of last year. The ruling was issued about 14 months after Dunleavy filed for binding arbitration. The amount was for everything Dunleavy was owed under his contract, including past compensation with interest and future accelerated compensation, according to people familiar with the ruling but not authorized to talk about it publicly.

If you had one question to ask Donald Sterling , what would it be? "Why do you run your own picture so much in advertisements in the L.A. Times?" Sterling's response: "I like the way I look. " And so it went Monday at the Clippers' practice facility, Sterling of good cheer for an owner of such a failing organization and taking on all questions while the team unveiled new uniforms since they don't have any new players to showcase. The lightweight uniform with holes in it, seemingly tailor-made for the Clippers although everyone in the league will have them, was fitted to a mannequin with its head cut off — reminding everyone of Baron Davis running the Clippers' offense, Davis wearing No. 5 this season because No. 1 never did fit. A couple of months ago this was going to be the summer of all summers for the Clippers, a fresh start, a chance to hire a new coach, $17 million in cap space to go after LeBron or other big names like him and make a huge splash.

The Lakers are slowly reaching out to coaching candidates, contacting Rick Adelman to officially express an interest in him to replace Phil Jackson. The three decision-makers for the Lakers' coaching search — owner Jerry Buss and executives Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak — continued the gradual momentum from their meeting Tuesday in which they drew up an official list. Former Lakers coach Mike Dunleavy and current Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw are also candidates. Former Cleveland coach Mike Brown is considered the front-runner for the Golden State coaching job, though the Lakers are somewhat interested in him too. The Lakers aren't in a huge rush.

In the depths of Staples Center before Saturday's game against the Washington Wizards, Clippers guard Quinton Ross repeated a mantra. "Winning means playing the best defense and shutting the opponent down," he said over and over. It wasn't a motivational tactic -- the phrase was for a television ad -- but it was the mind-set of Ross and teammate Jason Hart for much of the Clippers' 111-105 win over the Wizards in front of an announced 18,331. The pair did what few can, containing Agent Zero, a.

Agents often have the ear of their clients, giving the player advice on when to push through an injury and when to shut it down. With the rash of injuries the Clippers have, Coach Mike Dunleavy wondered what role, if any, the agents for the team's injured players have had in the players returning later rather than sooner. "When guys get injured, typically you have agents that are going to tell them, 'There's no reason to hurry back.

Thirteen months and counting. That's how long it has been since Mike Dunleavy was fired as the Clippers' general manager and, not so coincidentally, that was the last time he was paid by the team. His long and winding case finally will be heard in arbitration, starting Monday before Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services in Santa Monica. Proceedings are expected to last several days with additional briefs filed afterward, and the judge could issue a decision by June. There is $6.75 million in unpaid salary remaining on Dunleavy's contract.

Finger-pointing. Allegations of fraudulent inducement. He said, he said. Welcome to the Clippers vs. Mike Dunleavy. The latest curious twist in the battle between the Clippers and owner Donald Sterling and the team's former coach-general manager took a wild turn last week when the Clippers, trying to halt Dunleavy's arbitration claim, alleged that Dunleavy fraudulently induced the Clippers into entering an employment agreement. Dunleavy's lawyer, in an interview with The Times on Thursday, said the lawsuit does not pass "the laugh test."

Mike Dunleavy, former coach and general manager of the Clippers, takes a look at what the Lakers need to do to repeat their title next season. Dunleavy has coached four NBA teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers. He was NBA coach of the year in 1999 with Portland. The Lakers will have a lot of difficult decisions in the coming months, but this one is a no-brainer: They need to keep Derek Fisher. In a moment, I'll get into some of the other choices the franchise needs to make as it positions itself to make a run at a third consecutive NBA title.

Dunleavy has coached four NBA teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers. He was NBA coach of the year in 1999 with Portland. The fifth game of the NBA Finals is often the pivotal game in the series, and this one turned into a Boston D party. While the Celtics clamped down on the Lakers, limiting them to 39.7% shooting and only two players in double figures, Boston also got a big lift from Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo to head back to Los Angeles with a 3-2 lead.

Mike Dunleavy was so eagerly awaiting coaching his 1,000th NBA game Friday he had to be told by the Clipper media staff that he had reached the milestone. "It's good to be around that long, and I hope I'm around another 1,000 games," Dunleavy said. "But I didn't know it was coming until yesterday." He began his career with the Lakers in the 1990-91 season, a team he took to the NBA Finals (losing to Chicago in five games). He said he could still remember his first game.

You guys in the media helped run Mike Schuler out of town by noting every rumor of his demise, by criticizing his coaching moves, by printing every rumor of team dissent, by not supporting him. Interestingly enough, during this same time, it is as if Mike Dunleavy is off-limits. Nowhere have I read a single reproach of Dunleavy. The headlines are filled with "tired Lakers lose again." Nobody questions why they might be tired. It should be clear by now that the reason the Lakers are "thin" and "tired" is because Dunleavy, like Pat Riley before him, keeps his player rotation limited.
