Blake Griffin was talking to friends in a Staples Center hallway after the Clippers' victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night when Jermaine O'Neal walked up and got into Griffin's face. Griffin was posing for pictures when he was approached by the angry backup center for the Warriors. “Why you going to walk up on me like that?” Griffin asked O'Neal. “Leave that ... on the court. Leave that ... on the court.” O'Neal snarled, shook Griffin's hand and walked away.

A smile crossed Blake Griffin's face as he weaved his way through a media throng Friday to answer questions about the first-round playoff series between his Clippers and the Golden State Warriors. Griffin's eyes grew wider, too, when the All-Star power forward was asked if there were any lingering issues between him and Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal. The last time the teams played each other, March 12 at Staples Center, Griffin and O'Neal had a postgame confrontation in the hallway outside of the Clippers' locker room.

Blake Griffin approached the media for his session Friday and smiled as he prepared to answer questions about the first-round playoff series between his Clippers and the Golden State Warriors. Then Griffin's eyes grew wide when the Clippers All-Star power forward was asked if there were any lingering problems between him and Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal. Griffin assured everyone he had no issues with O'Neal. The question was asked because Griffin and O'Neal had a confrontation in the hallway outside the Clippers' locker room the last time the two teams played at Staples Center on March 12. The two exchanged words after O'Neal approached a surprised Griffin, but nothing happened.

The Clippers were still waiting to hear from the NBA on Thursday to see whether the league would take any action against forward Blake Griffin and Golden State backup center Jermaine O'Neal. A squabble between the players began during the Clippers' 111-98 victory over the Warriors on Wednesday night and it carried over after the game. A league official said that Rod Thorn, the NBA's president of basketball operations, may decide that no action is warranted because no punches were thrown by Griffin and O'Neal.

The Boston Celtics signed Shaquille O'Neal on Wednesday, adding the 15-time All-Star center to a team needing his size with center Kendrick Perkins recovering from knee surgery that could sideline him until February. The deal with the free-agent center is for two years and about $3 million, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said on condition of anonymity because no details were released. O'Neal joins the other three big names — Paul Pierce , Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen — on a team that went to the seventh game of the NBA Finals before losing to the Lakers.

Citing a need for "someone in the middle," Miami Heat President Pat Riley on Friday traded forward Shawn Marion and point guard Marcus Banks to the Toronto Raptors for center Jermaine O'Neal, forward Jamario Moon and a future first-round pick. "Somewhere you've got to get honest with yourself and say if you're going to compete with the big boys, you need someone in the middle," Riley said. "It was the best move for now, competitively. And it sweeps the table for 2010." The trade provides the height-challenged Heat with a proven post presence in O'Neal, a five-time All Star and a definite upgrade on Jamaal Magloire, Joel Anthony and Mark Blount.

WASHINGTON -- Three days into preseason the NBA is brimming with good news. The entire league is slipstreaming behind the U.S. Olympic team and its gold medal showing both on the court and wherever one of its members showed up in Beijing. Optimism is rampant. In Houston, the Rockets think they can harness Ron Artest. Folks in Philly think Elton Brand can lead the 76ers to places they haven't been since Allen Iverson was a pup. In Portland, Greg Oden is bringing back the enthusiasm that basketball-crazed community once had for the Bill Walton teams.
