Another take on CP3, Hornets
I know lots of folks are quick to point a finger at Chris Paul for what he did Sunday night, going after Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo after a game, having to be restrained from what could’ve been an ugly incident.
Hey, the Hornet point guard isn’t a saint.
Never said he was.
But if you’re looking for a good take on why CP3 might be a bit on edge, check out this Yahoo! column from Adrian Wojnarowski. He isn’t apologizing for what Paul did, but he’s attempting to explain his frustration. And in the process, he pulls no punches, especially when it comes to Hornets owner George Shinn.
Shinn is a farce, forever insisting that his moral compass brought the franchise back from exile in Oklahoma City, but truth be told he never wanted to return. The NBA pushed him into New Orleans, understanding it would’ve been a PR nightmare to abandon the post-Katrina city. That’s Shinn, the ultimate front-runner. He now takes bows for the Hornets’ popularity, but it’s laughable.
Paul connected with Oklahoma City fans for many reasons. One of the main ones was his fiery competitiveness.
It goes a long way toward explaining why Paul may not be as warm and fuzzy as he used to be.
