  1. League finds way to make bad PR situation worse by killing trade

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT

    David Stern

    The only public relations move worse than the league allowing Chris Paul to be traded to the Lakers after a five-month lockout allegedly about “competitive balance” is to have David Stern come in with an iron fist and kill the deal because owners complained. Well done NBA. Well done indeed. David Stern and the league…

  2. Lakers, Rockets, Hornets talking three-way Chris Paul trade

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    After things seemed to cool of on Wednesday, the Chris Paul trade rumors have heated up fast and furious on Thursday. That includes a three-way deal where Paul ends up with the Los Angeles Lakers, who give up Pau Gasol. Then there is both Boston and New York working hard to find multi-team deals that…

  3. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  4. Chris Paul denies requesting trade to New York. As he must.

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    This was inevitable and predictable. And it doesn’t change one thing. Chris Paul has officially denied that he has requested a trade to the New York Knicks. Here are the quotes via the Times-Picayune. But two league sources confirmed after the story broke that Paul’s agent, Leon Rose, never made the request to the Hornets.…

  5. Report: Chris Paul’s agent tells Hornets he will not sign, wants to be Knick

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This might be David Stern’s worst nightmare. The only thing that would make it worse is if union lawyer Jeffrey Kessler were Chris Paul‘s agent. Paul has informed the Hornets front office that he will not sign an extension with the team and that he wants to be traded to the Knicks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski…

  6. Report: Chris Paul eyeing Knicks or… Clippers?

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    When the New Orleans Hornets reach out to Chris Paul not long after Dec. 9, they will offer him a max deal that will have one more guaranteed year and be worth $27 million more than what any other team can offer. That’s a lot of money. And there are not many people — even…

  7. Winderman: Chris Paul rumors show why Hornets need owner fast

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    Since the NBA last bounced a ball, one team has changed hands (Philadelphia) and another was sold only to have that deal fall apart (Atlanta). All the while, a franchise that might have as great an impact as any in reshaping the league remains in the hands of the league (New Orleans). While the NBA…

  8. Video: Watch Chris Paul on Family Feud

    Nov 1, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul does not want you to see his wallet. That is just one of the things we learned from Paul’s trip to Family Feud, which he did play with his family for charity. Aside that, the other big take away from this video is that Chris Paul is much better at basketball than Family…

  9. Our survey said: Chris Paul to play “Family Feud”

    Oct 26, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    “Let’s play the Feud!” Chris Paul is dragging along his family to be on an episode of “Family Feud,” reports the Times-Picayune (via SLAM). Money he and his family wins will go to the CP3 Foundation (his charity) and the episode will air next Tuesday (although check your local listings). Paul got on the show…

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

    May 11, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Apr 26, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Chris Paul won’t rule out playing for Jordan in Charlotte

    Apr 12, 2011, 1:29 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Chris Paul — who is eyeing a future outside the Big Easy — knows that rule No. 1 is not to cut off potential opportunities. No matter the likelihood. With that in mind we bring you Chris Paul’s reaction to being asked by the Associated Press if he would return to his native North Carolina…

  13. Chris Paul had knee drained Tuesday

    Apr 7, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul looked like, well, Chris Paul on Wednesday night. Houston’s Kyle Lowry was maybe the hottest point guard in the NBA the last few weeks and Paul dominated the matchup. The Hornets got the come-from-behind win. That came one day after Paul got fluid drained from his surgically-repaired left knee, according to the Times-Picayune.…

  14. Chris Paul suffers concussion, leaves court on stretcher, but tests negative

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    That looked scary. It could have ended up much, much worse. In the third quarter us Sunday night Chris Paul drove the lane against the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost the ball, turned his head to find it as he slammed his head into the arm ad shoulders of Ramon Session. Paul collapsed to the floor and…

  15. Is Chris Paul becoming more John Stockton than Isiah Thomas?

    Mar 4, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul insists he’s healthy. He says his knee isn’t bothering him. But if you watched him in December and you watched him in March, you’re going to have a hard time buying it. The question is — will Paul ever be right? I mean right like he was three seasons ago? Maybe it doesn’t…

  16. Chris Paul is no fan of the Deron Williams trade

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    There was a lot of shock going around the league when news broke that the Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. Fans, media and players were shocked — and that includes Deron Williams himself. Chris Paul was no fan of the deal, he wrote this on twitter: Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail…

  17. Winderman: ‘Melo trade means Knicks now target Chris Paul, Dwight Howard

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:31 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Don’t even think about exhaling. The trade of Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks does not, finally, put the focus back on the court. Not in today’s NBA, or, more specifically, in tomorrow’s NBA. Think these past months were lessons in abject cruelty in Denver? Then consider what now follows…

  18. Game of the night: A tale of two halves, and the Heat won the last one

    Dec 14, 2010, 3:20 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    Two such different halves (well, really more like 32 minutes and 16 minutes rather than even halves). One where the Heat fell right into the Hornets’ well-executed game plan. One part where the Heat stopped playing along, the Hornets started missing shots and then it was on for Miami. The 16 trumped the 32 and…

  19. Sale of Hornets means Chris Paul isn’t going anywhere. For now.

    Dec 7, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It was the first question out of a lot of people’s mouths after it became official that the NBA was purchasing and taking control of the New Orleans Hornets (until they can find another owner to take it off their hands): What does that mean for Chris Paul? That was quickly followed by Knicks fans…

  20. Chris Paul plays New York so crank up the speculation machine

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    The New Orleans Hornets will take on the Knicks tonight, and you know what that means — time for some vintage New York speculation. Obviously, Chris Paul wants to be a Knick more than anything in the whole wide world. Why else would he have gone to Carmelo Anthony’s wedding in New York and made…

  21. Jarrett Jack says look at Miami before you think Chris Paul is New York bound

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    CPaul_Heat

    While the entire league is enjoying a bit of schadenfreude at the Miami Heat’s expense Tuesday morning, Jarrett Jack — the newest member of the Hornets — was warning that the slow start in South Beach could be viewed as a cautionary tale by players. After the Miami Heat formed Voltron this summer, there was…

  22. Hornets sale not dead yet, just world’s slowest transaction

    Oct 11, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Image (1) hornets_logo-thumb-250x269-11676.gif for post 1976

    Yesterday we passed along a New York Daily News report that the sale of the New Orleans Hornets was dead, but that may just have been wishful New York thinking about ways to get Chris Paul. Turns out the deal is not dead… dragging out forever, sure. But not dead. J. Michael Falgoust of the…

  23. Jannero Pargo let go by Hornets

    Oct 5, 2010, 5:06 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:06 pm: Pargo is going to back to Chicago to rehab his knee and hopes to be ready and on a roster by the start of the season, his agent Mark Bartelstien told Marc Spears of Yahoo. Both the Warriors and Hornets have concerns about his knee, but if he can get it healthy…

  24. Hornets ink Jannero Pargo to back up Chris Paul

    Sep 25, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    We said this might be coming, and now it has. Jannero Pargo has signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Hornets, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo. Pargo is a passable backup. There are better guys out there — certainly better shooters — but Pargo will make a few plays and a few buckets.…

  25. Chris Paul continues to say all the right things about New Orleans

    Sep 20, 2010, 2:42 PM EDT

    Ever since Chris Paul sat down with the management from the Hornets, he’s done nothing but say the right things. Maybe he is giving them a real chance. Maybe he realized he has little leverage now but will in a year (like Carmelo Anthony does now). Maybe he realized that his agent and people pushing…
