PLAYA VISTA >> Blake Griffin said he didn’t want to waste anyone else’s time. He said he didn’t want to be wooed by others. He said he still wanted to be the Clippers’ starting power forward. He said he’d found a home in a place so many others had fled over the years.

New Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley: ‘I am not Chris Paul’

PLAYA VISTA >>#xa0;Patrick Beverley wished to make one thing perfectly clear Tuesday morning.

“I am not Chris Paul,” he said forcefully.

Same position.

Similar size.

“Let me reiterate, I am not Chris Paul,” Beverley said during a news conference to introduce several of the newest Clippers acquired when they traded Paul to the Houston Rockets last month rather than lose Paul for nothing via free agency.

Miller: Chris Paul’s Clipper prominence glaring in his absence

PLAYA VISTA >> They formally introduced six of their new faces Tuesday, the Clippers moving forward mostly because they have no other choice.

Yet, even with all that was clearly visible on the faces here – the bravado of Patrick Beverley, the pride of Lou Williams, the excitement of Sam Dekker – nothing could mask the franchise’s lingering blank stare.
