The media has been all over Chris Paul's requests to be traded to another NBA team. In July, Chris Paul stated his interest in joining the Cleveland Cavaliers before the departure of LeBron James. Chances are he would not have joined the Cavs, but rather a team with a better chance of winning the NBA Championship. Of course, the Miami Heat might not have been able to sign Paul because they have spent a ton of money on revamping the roster.

Perhaps he would have considered the Bulls, Knicks, Mavericks, Suns, Rockets, Trailblazers, or a host of other teams. According to NBC Sports, Chris Paul stated made an announcement on the radio yesterday that he wants to stay with the Hornets. "That is where I am going to be, I Iove it.I love it."

This announcement was made yesterday afternoon.
