Chris Paul

  1. LeBron's rooting interest in the Chris Paul ordeal. Also, Freemasonry.

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    If we’ve learned anything from free agency this summer, it’s that NBA superstars are a part of some secret, underground, Freemason-esque society. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been conspiring to team up for the last 15 years, and only now, with all of the planets in perfect alignment in their orbits and…

  2. Chris Paul may want to go to the Magic, but a trade to Orlando looks fairly improbable

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    It’s easy to understand why Chris Paul would want to play for the Orlando Magic. Stan Van Gundy may be more demanding than most coaches, but he produces winning teams that dominate defensively. There’s also a guy there named Dwight Howard, and most online forum commenters seem to think he’s pretty good. The Magic could…

  3. Whatever Chris Paul asks for today, don't bet on the Hornets trading him soon

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We know what new General Manager Dell Demps and new coach Monty Williams are going to say to Chris Paul today when the two sides sit down for their first face-to-face meeting: Give us a chance. Both have just been hired in recent weeks, both will say they have not had time yet to build…

  4. We're living in an age of great shooters

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon in the NBA offseason. Our primary choices of discussion are the latest in Chris Paul rumors (nothing of substance will develop until after his meeting with NOLA brass Monday), Shaquille O’Neal rumors (the great celebration of the marginal), and a Las Vegas team that doesn’t exist. So instead, I thought…

  5. Report: Chris Paul denies LRMR connection

    Jul 24, 2010, 8:33 AM EDT

    You remember when we finally got through “The Decision” and we were so excited because we wouldn’t have to talk about LeBron for a while? Well, Chris Paul has come in and hijacked our summer away from us. Howard Beck of the New York Times, that fancy inkrag up New York way brings us news…

  6. 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…

  7. Chris Paul to sit down with Hornets while his agent fields trade requests

    Jul 23, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    If you’re a team interested in trading for Chris Paul, don’t send your request to the New Orleans Hornets, they’re not interested. Paul has two years left on his deal and the Hornets want to keep him. Send it instead to Leon Rose, Paul’s agent with Creative Artists Agency. He’s the one listening to offers…

  8. Chris Paul is simply the latest consumer of the NBA arms race that started in Boston

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    In 2007, the Spurs won their fourth title inside of a decade. They defeated a LeBron James-led Cavs team that featured Sasha Pavlovic as the fifth-leading scorer on the team. The arguable second-best team was the Phoenix Suns who would immediately begin a spiral based off of the hyper-reactive initial moves of Steve Kerr. The…

  9. Who really is on Chris Paul's trade demand list?

    Jul 22, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul wants to get traded, we get it. What we don’t get is where, exactly. The first report from Ken Berger of CBSSports.com said the Knicks, Magic and Lakers were on the list. But that’s not what ESPN’s Chris Broussard heard, and he is probably as well connected with LeBron’s people and the marketing…

  10. New Orleans, you don't have to trade Chris Paul

    Jul 22, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Larry Coon, the salary cap guru employed by ESPN (you are going to read a lot of him next summer when the lockout comes), made a great point this morning: Three years ago, Kobe Bryant went ballistic. He was frustrated by the Lakers roster, the inability to win, so Kobe demanded a trade. He ripped…

  11. Report: Chris Paul to pressure Hornets to trade him

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:34 PM EDT

    Dell Demps, welcome to your nightmare. The brand new general manager of the Hornets is going to be met by Chris Paul trying to force his way out of New Orleans before the start of this season, according to Ken Berger at CBSsports.com. He wants out,” said the person, who has been briefed on Paul’s…

  12. Rajon Rondo is unphased by the Team USA mystique

    Jul 19, 2010, 1:21 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo has never seemed all that interested in playing for Team USA. He kind of brushed off the initial invite to participate in this summer’s tryout (He apparently couldn’t be bothered to get back to Team USA czar Jerry Colangelo), and though he was officially added to the national team’s roster last week, he…

  13. Hornets' sale still in dispute

    Jul 17, 2010, 9:51 PM EDT

    The New Orleans Hornets need a GM in place, immediately. Chris Paul is getting antsy, the roster could use some serious upgrades if they want to contend, and new head coach Monty Williams needs to have someone to work with on acquisitions. And the process is certainly getting there, with Dell Demps emerging as the…

  14. New Hornets coach Monty Williams wants to clear the air with Chris Paul

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    And by “clear the air” we mean “try and convince him not to demand a trade which would result in the outright horrific downfall of the franchise.” CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger reports that Hornets head coach Monty Williams plans on sitting down with point guard Chris Paul for a conversation about where the team is headed…

  15. Chris Paul must be watching Hornets management and counting the days until he can leave

    Jul 14, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    There is more spin going on around the New Orleans Hornets right now than in the White House press room. Here is what we know: Jeff Bower is out as general manager. And that keeping Chris Paul happy is by far the most important thing to the franchise, and they are not doing a good…

  16. Dwight Howard, Chris Paul nominated for International Bowling Hall of Fame. Seriously.

    Jul 13, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    It all comes down to this roll. Dwight Howard, a man-child, with a dream to topple bowling giant Chris Paul. If he strikes, he’s the 1979 Odor-Eaters Champion. He’s got one foot in the frying pan and one in the pressure cooker. Believe me, as a bowler, I know that right about now, your bladder…

  17. Chris Paul allegedly promises big three in New York

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    I was not invited to Carmelo Anthony’s wedding. Yes, I am disappointed, but I may send him a toaster anyway. So I certainly didn’t hear this first hand. Neither did the New York Post, which reported about statements there they got it from a person at the wedding. So, to recap: Second hand information from…

  18. Team USA: The B-Team that actually wants to be there

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Yahoo! Sports reports that Jerry Colangelo has confirmed that not a single player from the 2008 Olympic team will join Team USA for the World Championships in Turkey this summer.  In the midst of a public outpouring of rage and disgust over the behavior of how and where various free agents decided to exercise their…

  19. Hornets, Chris Paul keep saying he's not on the trading block. Everyone else thinks he will be soon.

    Jul 4, 2010, 1:26 AM EDT

    Once again today, someone from the front office of the New Orleans Hornets tried to shoot down Chris Paul trade rumors. ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted about it: Hornets prez Hugh Weber, at event WITH Chris Paul, when asked if it’s 100 percent CP3 starts next season as a Hornet: “No question, yes.” The guys from…

  20. Hornets say they're not trading Chris Paul, but nobody believes them

    Jul 1, 2010, 4:47 PM EDT

    The Hornets keep saying they are not trading Chris Paul, but man is there still a lot of smoke coming from that direction. Last week’s hedge-your-bets statement from team owner George Shinn — we’re not trading Chris Paul, but we’ll look at any deal that improves the team — just threw more fuel on the…

  21. Dwight Howard wants to play with Chris Paul. Jameer who?

    Jun 30, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard wants to win. He got a taste of it, he got to the doorstep of a title two years ago. Last year, there was Boston. The retooled — good bye Hedo, hello Vince — Magic could not match up. Jameer Nelson was back and the Magic did not get as far. So Howard…

  22. Hormets owner George Shinn says Chris Paul is not going anywhere. Sort of.

    Jun 23, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Once trade rumors get rolling, they are almost impossible to stop. Even when they made no sense. Like the Hornets trying to trade Chris Paul. That’s not a normal kind of insane, that’s like Charlie Manson level insane. It makes no real sense. So owner George Shinn came forward to put an end to that…

  23. Chris Paul wants to stay in New Orleans, but only if team is commits to winning

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    Trade rumors — totally ridiculous trade rumors for the most part — are swirling around Chris Paul. But nobody asked Chris Paul about it. Well, until Chris Broussard of ESPN the Magazine did. “My first choice is to be in New Orleans,” Paul said in a telephone interview from London. “I just want to make…

  24. Magic, Nets, Knicks ask about trading for Chris Paul

    Jun 22, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:42 pm: The Magic’s offer to get Chris Paul out of New Orleans had to at least make the Hornets pause — Jameer Nelson and Vince Carter for CP3 and James Posey. That according to FanHouse’s Tim Potvik. That deal would save the Hornets money long term — this is the last year of…

  25. Quote of the day, how conflicting rumors get started

    Jun 22, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    “Right now Wes is talking out of six sides of his mouth.” –One anonymous general manager, about what CAA employee and LeBron insider William Wesley is doing right now on the LeBron James and Chris Paul rumors (as tweeted by Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer).
