Chris Paul has a Magic preference

Jul 23, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

After Chris Paul’s list of places he’d like to be traded to came out, the natural response was to seek out a preference of Paul, the Hornets, and King of Mardis Gras. Just as it was with LeBron, only without any sort of leverage on the part of the player, every city of fans believe they are the best fit for the young point guard. New Orleans probably feels strongest in that regard.

But Chris Broussard has a report tonight on what Paul’s preference is. You remember Chris, don’t you? He was the one who mentioned on a little 4-letter network that LeBron James would be joining the Miami Heat. So it’s been a pretty good month for Broussey’s track record. Can I call him Broussey? No? Okay, then. Either way, Broussard hasn’t done too bad this month.

And he reports that Orlando has supplanted the Knicks as Chris Paul’s preferred destination.

Before we get too far and I have to start ducking from the good people of New Orleans throwing  pint glasses of Abita Amber at me (don’t waste it!), let’s set something straight. Chris Paul can prefer New York. LA. Orlando. Manchester United. The New York Football Giants. The Monstars. It won’t matter if Dell Demps thinks that trading Chris Paul is madness. And it is.

You have to look at the offers. You have to consider it. You have to entertain the idea. But at the end of the day, you realize that you have David West, Emeka Okafor, two talented rookies, and that doesn’t add up to trading the best point guard in the league. If Demps realizes that, there’s no alternative. There’s no rationalization. They will not trade Chris Paul.

So we wait and hear more word out of Chris Paul’s camp, and wait to see if the Hornets blink.

    You are an idiot. I hope you never reproduce (do you even know what that means?). Not only are you an ignorant, imbred fool, but your grammar is atrocious. They’re is wrong. Wave on the wind? Go back to prison.

    Racists are always the same! Jealous, envious, and full of unreasoning hatred. I feel sorry for you!!

    Just ignore him. They do it for attention and so far nobody has commented on the story.
    I think Chris and his management team realized that New York couldn’t make a deal for Chris so they picked the next best choice. Orlando has enough tradable assets to make the deal work. I’m sure New Orleans would want to unload Okafor’s bloated contract also so there are a few deals available with Orlando.
    Dwight Howard and Chris Paul would be a healthy 1-2 punch!

    My guess is the guy got fired by this Scott Cagle guy and is trying to get him in trouble.

    Perhaps there are reasons that it couldn’t be done, but I still think a CP trade to Chicago for D Rose and Luol Deng makes some sense. Chicago would have a reasonable chance of locking CP down for years to come, NO would receive a great PG to immediately take CP’s place, and the contract of Deng is finished after next season, no? If LBJ’s decision had been the Bulls like it should have been, then this would make even more sense. Imagine a LeBron/Paul/Noah matchup with Wade/Bosh/??? for the Eastern Conference Finals. Now THAT would be uber-exciting.

    People like you are why I left Pensacola 15 years ago. The important thing here, however, is that Orlando really needs to get Paul. We have a need at the position, and we need a productive player to replace Barnes. This would be a great move for Orlando. GO MAGIC!

    Broussard is never right, he chose every team as a destination for Lebron right until the end when magically he chose Miami. I hope Paul does go to the Magic, the Knicks would be forced to give up their whole team to get him while the Magic? They will have to give up pretty much nothing. This is the position the Knicks have themselves in right now. No one values any of their players so they need to start winning and stepping up before anyone ever wants to be a Knick or wants their players. And don’t even bring up Amare, he is a Knick because no one else would give him max money.

    Yea, Broussard had the scoop on James to Miami…….about two weeks after Stephen A. Smith.

    I love it when 13 year olds post racist comments to stir stuff up. So cute. They get a chance to say stuff they could never say in public and get to giggle under their Justin Beiber blankets when adults respond.
    So sweet.

    Travis W,
    Hahahahahah. You think the Bulls are going to trade Rose AND Deng for Paul? Paul is a great player but come on with this dumb crap. The Bulls wouldn’t trade Rose at this point. He’s the face of the franchise and ISN’T a scumbag like the 3 Mi-Egos, and apparently Chris Paul, are turning out to be.

    This is a terribly written article. The “writer” if he can call himself that, obviously does not know how to edit.

    This is why the U.S. will fall. People like this with caveman attitudes. They took God out of the U.S. and say we are better off. I don’t think so….To be “One Nation, it has to be “Under God” (whatever God means to you, and the principals he gave you to live by) “Indivisible” by Respecting your Flag, Primary Language, acknowledging all of us are HUMAN, Respecting “Liberty and Justice” All have to Earn and Give RESPECT to their fellow human’s. Until that happens, the human race is doomed.

    Paul play out the contract you signed. I am sure you would like to be President also!
    Who cares what you want?

    In this civilized time you are getting abnoxious–in your case you are even showing more of your ignorance. You don’t even know how to used the English language, which is what defines you and not your seemingly white race. I hope you really understand what I said for you really portray not illiteracy, but you really need guidance from your ignorance. You are really not funny, if that was your intention. How about you being a racist. Can’t you see you ideology is diminishing and will subsequently die? Your lack of ability to even use proper word to express yourself is your curse…

    As an American in this day an age I am appalled at the ignorant racial comments I see here by shallow idiots. There is no place in our society or the world for those who think that they are above someone else or belittle someone else just because of the color of their skin. Why is it that the uneducated always speak the loudest?

    Chris Paul is a fine young man, from Wake Forest University. He is a credit to his state and to his parents.

    Chris Paul is a fine young man, from Wake Forest University. He is a credit to his state and to his parents. He does the city of New Orleans proud. We need more like him.
