Friday Morning Man: Chris Paul!

http://www5.picturepush.com/photo/a/3201773/480/BBall-Cuts/chris-paul-smile.png?v0Los Angeles fans are all abuzz over the fact that Chris Paul will be playing at Staples Center this season – but not for the Lakers!

In the biggest trade in its history, the Los Angeles Clippers have acquired New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul, a four-time NBA All Star. He will earn $16.3 million this season.

He is considered as good a point guard as there has ever been in the NBA so his joining the team makes the struggling franchise instantly relevant.

“I’m excited to be here in L.A. with this unbelievable franchise with so much history behind it,” Paul said at a press conference Thursday. “This is going to be an unbelievable experience.”

“I’m crazy competitive,” he added. “I think that’s what makes me the player that I am. I just have to compete, so knowing that they never won a championship here I wanted to be a part of something like that. … I want to see those Clippers T-shirts around town. I want to see everybody filing into Staples Center to see us play and at the end of the day I want to win here.”
