Chris Paul is the most coveted free agent and it is not even 2012 yet. Players like Tyson Chandler and Nene Hilario sit on the FA block while Paul gets his name hurled around a circle like a sadistic hot potato game. Paul is intent on making all of us believe that his heart is in New Orleans.
We would be more inclined to believe him if the Hornets were not well on their way to making him the only option surfacing in N’Oleans.
Paul is a competitor first, Hornets teammate second. This order of priorities will be exposed when after a hard fought season, NO still does not make it to the place he feel he deserves to be.
Then the offers will come rolling in.
However, which franchises actually have the best chance has yet to be decided. With all of the insider information leaking from Chris Broussard and players negating each rumor being released, it is hard to tell what’s real and what should be left to conversations of unicorns, tooth fairies and economic equality.
Let’s attempt to narrow things down, shall we?
