Chris Paul

  1. Talks with “handful” of potential Hornets buyers to start soon

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:44 AM EST

    new-orleans-hornets logo

    The NBA’s economic model is so broken that wealthy potential owners of new franchises keep lining up despite the league being locked out. That includes people willing to buy and keep the New Orleans Hornets in the Crescent City, despite that having been a tough NBA market for decades. Talks with potential owners are going…

  2. Isiah Thomas working out Stoudemire in Florida… and Chris Paul

    Sep 14, 2011, 10:13 AM EST

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Let the Knicks conspiracy theories begin… or are they conspiracy theories if they are true? For those of you who want to deny that former Knicks GM and current Florida International coach Isiah Thomas no longer has influence with his old organization, we bring you this. Current Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire is working out with…

  3. LeBron, Durant, CP3 jump in for Philly vs. Melo game

    Sep 13, 2011, 12:51 PM EST

    LeBron James

    The summer of pro-am games is about to jump the shark. That comes when all the big names start jumping into every game, representing cities where they have no real connection. The folks in Philadelphia should get a good show, but that seems to be what is happening for the Philly vs. Melo league contest…

  4. Video: Wade, ‘Melo, CP3 should not do any dancing shows

    Sep 6, 2011, 6:10 PM EST

    NBA basketball players Wade, Anthony and Paul gesture to fans as they arrive at a promotional event at an outdoor basketball court in Beijing

    Ron Artest may be Dancing with the Stars (for at least a week), but according to the latest evidence that is more than Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul should do. During a recent tour of China the three got pulled into a dance off, and the results were… well, score one for the…

  5. Video: Highlights from Luda Day game — give us Bieber

    Sep 6, 2011, 11:10 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    It was Luda Day weekend in Atlanta last weekend, where rapper Ludacris both throws some big parties and gives back to the community in Atlanta (such as taking 1,000 youth to see an Atlanta Braves game. The highlight of the weekend is the charity basketball game, which featured Kevin Durant (of course it did, he’s…

  6. Durant, LeBron put on show at Goodman vs. Melo League game

    Aug 30, 2011, 10:19 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Kevin Durant matched up on LeBron James. One-on-one. All night long. That was the show at the Goodman vs. Melo league showdown in Baltimore Tuesday night. Actually, that was just part of the show, which is why it was a special night. The result was 59 points for Durant. The result was LeBron — who…

  7. Summer star exhibition-o-rama, part deux: Goodman League vs. Melo League coming soon

    Aug 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Goodman-Drew was a thriller, even if almost no one got to see it (even those who had tickets). But it was lacking in star power (no offense to James Harden or Brandon Jennings). There’s talk of Kobe joining the Drew League for a rematch in California, but there may be a bigger contest being put…

  8. Is it “bad” if LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul don’t tip?

    Aug 6, 2011, 10:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (L) and teammate LeBron James wait to leave the stadium after losing the NBA Championship to the Dallas Mavericks in Miami

    Step carefully, children. We’re near the edge of a dangerous ledge. So NBA players not tipping is not a breaking story. It’s been talked about for ages. Fairly often it comes with certain racial implications that are fairly well documented (or at least claims thereof have been). But instead of going down that road, let’s…

  9. How the Kobe, Rose Philippines exhibition came together

    Jul 28, 2011, 6:59 PM EST

    NBA's Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant dun

    Being rich has its perks. That essentially is how the two big exhibition games in the Phillipines last week that included Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul and four other NBA players came together. It was because Filipino tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan — called MVP by most — decided he wanted it to…

  10. While in China, ‘Melo and Chris Paul say they’d play there

    Jul 27, 2011, 10:18 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    What else did you expect them to say? Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul have been good soldiers for the NBA players union, officially keeping the door open to them playing overseas if the lockout drags on. Leverage baby! Even though for CP3 he’d be risking injury while on the cusp of a huge free agent…

  11. Chris Paul and the players’ moral paradox

    Jul 17, 2011, 8:51 PM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    We can do this one of two ways. The quick and dirty way, or the abstract and more complex way. As usual, I’ll give you the quick and dirty version first. In an interview with Business Week, Chris Paul revealed the stunning information that the players know how much the lockout affects the fans and…

  12. Kobe, Chris Paul part of star-studded Philippines exhibition

    Jul 15, 2011, 5:13 PM EST

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    If you want to see NBA players on the court, you need to head to the Philippines. There may be a lockout stateside killing even Summer League but a couple big exhibition games have gotten approval in Manilla and will feature Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, and other NBA stars, according to the Philippines Star newspaper…

  13. David West opts out of contract, hits free agent market

    Jun 27, 2011, 10:36 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    If this were any year in the last five, what David West is doing would be a no brainer. But this year, heading into a lockout followed by a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, he is taking a risk. David West has told the New Orleans Hornets he is opting out of the final year of…

  14. Still big gap between NBA owners, players after key talks

    Jun 21, 2011, 4:38 PM EST

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    If you were waiting to really worry about an NBA lockout, now is a good time. Tuesday’s negotiation session — which NBA Commissioner David Stern had previously called key to avoiding a July 1 lockout — had both sides leaving and speaking in pessimistic tones. Chris Paul said this to Brian Smith of the Salt…

  15. Knicks targeting Jonny Flynn?

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:59 AM EST

    Jonny Flynn

    Back when Mike D’Antoni first took over as head coach of the Knicks and they were trying to get back on their feet, the Knicks signed a player they thought would be the point guard of the future. With D’Antoni’s system so reliant on a distributing playmaker, grabbing a versatile point guard who had shown…

  16. After nearly five-hour meeting, little progress in CBA talks

    Jun 17, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    The countdown clock reads 13 days until the NBA’s owners lock the players out. And if you weren’t sure before, you should be now that the clock will reach zero. After the two sides met for more than four-and-a-half hours in a Manhattan hotel Friday both sides left the room saying they were nowhere near…

  17. Earl Monroe states obvious: Chris Paul would fit with Knicks

    May 11, 2011, 11:46 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Stunning revelation: Probably the best Knicks point guard ever thinks arguably the best point guard in the game today would be a good fit with the Knicks. We’re big fans of Earl “The Pearl” Monroe — the one interview I’ve done where my father was thrilled I was doing it — and he spoke for…

  18. Hornets will talk extension with Chris Paul… when they can

    May 5, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Job No. 1 for the New Orleans Hornets: Keep Chris Paul. Okay, maybe “find an owner to keep the team in town” is above that on the to-do list. But that is outside GM Dell Demps job description, he’s just trying to build a winner people will want to come see Which brings us back…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Chris Paul goes cold, Lakers go on better for effort

    Apr 28, 2011, 11:38 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Six

    For five games, Chris Paul was playing like the best point guard in the game. He had played two super-human games to earn New Orleans two wins against the defending champions, and even in the losses he had been special. The Hornets needed him to do that. He was their only hope. And when he…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Nobody closes out on the road like the Lakers

    Apr 28, 2011, 3:40 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Back in the 2009 NBA finals, the Los Angeles Lakers closed out the Orlando Magic in Game 5 on the road. Last playoffs on their way to the finals, the Lakers closed out Oklahoma City, Utah and Phoenix all on the road. Thursday night, they are back in that situation — they can close out…

  21. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Apr 28, 2011, 10:55 AM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Fantastic story from ESPN’s Rick Reilly (seriously) on Chris Paul and the murder of his grandfather. LeBron James called knocking off the 76ers “finishing off their breakfast.” The quote that spawned 1,000 food metaphors around the Web. Lunch is going to be a lot tougher to swallow, by the way. LeBron should talk food with…

  22. NBA Playoffs: The Lakers get back on track

    Apr 27, 2011, 2:36 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    There was no one matchup that swung in the Lakers’ favor on Tuesday night. There wasn’t one key play that ended up making all the difference late in the game, although Kobe Bryant‘s turn-back-the-clock dunk in the second quarter did help swing the momentum their way. There wasn’t a noticeable change in their offensive strategy,…

  23. NBA Playoffs: It’s not Kobe’s ankle, it’s Chris Paul breaking them

    Apr 26, 2011, 3:34 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Game 5 is about ankles. The one getting all the hype is Lakers guard Kobe Bryant’s left ankle. His foot is still attached, so he’s playing. That’s not the question. He twisted his ankle (and foot) at the end of Los Angeles 93-88 loss to New Orleans in Game 4 and has since refused to…

  24. Video: Watch Chris Paul abuse Derek Fisher

    Apr 25, 2011, 1:10 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant reacts as he stands behind New Orleans Hornets Chris Paul during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference first round playoff basketball game in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul was masterful on Sunday, and we should watch that one more time. We could show you his absolute stunning moves on Andrew Bynum in isolation, or any one of 15 sweet assists. But nothing shows why this series is tied like the difference in play at point guard. And nothing illustrates that like…

  25. Now what, New York Knicks?

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If you asked any Knicks fan before the season if they would take a trip to the playoffs and a trade that brings them Carmelo Anthony this season, they would have taken it. But it’s premature to hang the “Mission Accomplished” banner. The Knicks accomplished goals and a good season. You can say they are…
