    Sure as hell wasn't me. I've said Chris handled his situation better than all the rest of them.

    Did I say it was you? We all know Paul handled his situation better than the rest of them but there are more people on HR.com than just you. Anyone who said it knows who they are.

    How can you blame him when your starting shooting guard & small forwards was Rasule Butler & James Posey. I cant remember that other joker. i think his name was Devin Brown lol

    Paul actually tried to change the Hornets' culture, too. Starting with 'Zo, stars had been regularly leaving without a second thought. We only got to rent them for a few years. Paul legitimately wanted to stay, but there just weren't enough pieces for him to risk wallowing in the muck of Shinn for years to come.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    I'm one. And I stick by what I said. Paul just knows how to play the PR game.

    He wanted the big city and lights. That's it. Having met him out and having friends who knew him pretty well, he isn't the guy he portrays himself to be. There is a reason the list of teams he was willing to go to was so short. We could have gotten something better for him from another smaller market team.

    Look, I don't dislike him at all. I actually admire the way he has played things. He never hated on the city, he just wanted to play in a bigger one. The way he has people eating out of his hands is quite remarkable.

    This. Let's not forget he went to play for the most notorious owners on a team that had a poorer history than the Hornets.

    I don't know if I ever said I don't believing anything he said but I'm sure I did say something like I never take any public statement by an athlete at its face value.

    Paul was great. best player so far in the history of the Hornets. And a class act. I just wish we had a competent GM and an owner who wanted to win.

    Oh well we have the Brow.... we have a promising future.

    Actually it was stern. David stern save us from a crappy Dell demp trade. We would have ended up with Lamar odom and scola I believe.

    He's not coming back. That was the whole point of my post above. I don't want anyone holding out false hope.

    I'm not holding out false hope. I'm not planning on him returning in FA, but I'm just saying that the guy would want to play here if we gave him more help. He tried to get Howard to sign here for the long term, which means he wanted to be here for the long term. It was never about hatred for the city or small markets. It was always about winning.

    He might... too bad the team is now saddled with Gordon's contract. No chance to sign him now.

    Truth is, we could trade him to some team come the trade deadline in return for a $10 million dollar contract, and we would have more than enough money to sign CP. I would only do that, though, if I knew for sure that Chris would sign here come FA.

    For the record, I still think Gordon will come back, play well, and people will forget about the nonsense and just enjoy basketball.

    Wonder if you'll be saying the same thing a year from now when he's still only played a handful of games?

    Chris has moved on. He's not coming back.

    As Unknown Poster said don't believe everything an athlete says. It was about playing in a bigger market for Paul. Everyone of his choices where he would go were big markets. If it was really all about winning with Paul, why did he go to the Clippers who had the worst owner in the league and a history of losing? Griffin is overrated and not the reason why he went there.
