By all accounts, Chris Paul is very upset that a proposed three-team deal that would have sent him to the Los Angeles Lakers was vetoed by NBA commissioner David Stern. In case there was any doubt of that, Paul's father said so in an interview with Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest.
"Chris is pissed off," Charles Paul, the father of Chris Paul told CSNNW.com. "He's going to leave after the season anyway and it's not right that these owners are trying to dictate where Chris lands."
Charles Paul said that Paul just "wants to go somewhere he can win" and that the trade was fair. He later called the whole thing a "joke" and noted that the Hornets currently have five players under contract. Paul is not expected to report to the Hornets when they open training camp on Friday.
