VIDEO: Chris Paul's Parting Words


CP3 wanted to go to L.A. so bad that he threatened to sue the leauge if they wouldn't let him leave the nest. But from the comfort of his new Clipper digs, the former Hornets point guard offered some final words for New Orleans. Saying he would continue to help the community here in La., Paul said he already missed the kids in his after school program, CP3 Zone.  As for the long and sordid trade tale, the NBA All-Star kept repeating that the experience was "humbling." That's one way of putting it. Watch his complete remarks on NOLA after the jump.


CP3 Ain't Free


Chris Paul apparently prefers L.A. to La., but the NBA has other plans. Less than a week after nixing a deal that would've sent the Hornets' franchise player to the Lakers and brought Khloe Khardashian (and Lamar Odom) to New Orleans, a second deal that would made Paul a Clipper fell through today. The league, which owns the Hornets, wanted too many good players and draft picks for the all-star point guard, the Clippers said. We only have one question: Has anyone called Morris Bart yet? ESPN has coverage, Hornets 24-7 has analysis and Swarm and Sting tracks all the Twitterings.
