According to the Times-Picayune, Chris Paul will be a guest on TNT’s Tip-off show tonight live from Atlanta with Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.
Don’t be surprised if the Hornets’ poor attendance comes up, and maybe even some mention of Oklahoma City. Remember, the last time Paul was a guest on the show, Charles Barkley made his infamous comments about Oklahoma being a “wasteland,” filled with chickens and cows and void of black people.
One last thing on Paul. Apparently he is growing more and more frustrated with bad losses, most notably Monday night’s to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite Paul’s career-high averages of 18.6 points, 10.4 assists and 3.0 steals to go with 4.1 rebounds, the Hornets are just 10-6 after that 9-2 start.
