Chris Paul - sadface

quote:

Paul said during Friday’s NBA All-Star media availability that the impending name change, new colors and logo are going to make him feel like the franchise no longer will exist the way he knew it as when he played his first six seasons with the Hornets.

"I think the thing with the name change that’s tough is that it almost feels like I played for another team, you know," Paul said. "The New Orleans Hornets for me they don’t exist."

Paul avoided saying he disliked the name change Friday, but described the switch as bittersweet. He also said there are some people he knows in New Orleans that weren’t crazy about it.

After owner Tom Benson officially announced last month the Hornets would become the Pelicans, Paul wrote on his Twitter page: Pelicans???`I’m not rolling.’

"It is what it is," Paul said. "I like the colors, though, and the logo. Whatever makes the city happy. At the end of the day, the team has to do what it has to do." LINK
Awwwwwww

Maybe we should have consulted him on the rebrand.

Not gonna lie, this kinda hit me hard.


Those Hornets teams with Chris "I still give a crap" Paul were so much fun to watch.

Well just keep reminding yourself that he forced his way out to go to the Clippers.

You mean the season when did nothing except when he was on national tv?

Playoffs he actually tried, regular season just stood around because we traded his bestie

For me, Chris Paul does not exist. He's gone and the Pelicans will get better and better every year without him. Now let's move on and focus on our players who want to be here and who want to build something special. CP Who?

I'm pretty sure most people mean the 2007-08 season when he should have been league MVP.

Not that I actually think he is leaving LA, and I realize he mocked the name change, but distancing ourselves from the Hornets franchise could actually be more appealing to CP.
