Chris Paul continues to say all the right things about New Orleans

Ever since Chris Paul sat down with the management from the Hornets, he’s done nothing but say the right things.

Maybe he is giving them a real chance. Maybe he realized he has little leverage now but will in a year (like Carmelo Anthony does now). Maybe he realized that his agent and people pushing for a trade in a semi-public way drove down his trade value. Maybe some combination of the above.

For now CP3 keeps saying the right things, as he did on the satellite radio station The Score when asked if New Orleans is where he wants to be.

“Yeah exactly. That is where I am going to be. I love it. I love it.”

He goes on to rave about the city and it’s people. You’ll get enough of that tonight on Monday Night Football with the Saints, no need to go into it all here.

Paul may be able to push for a trade in a year (or whenever the lockout ends). He may decide not to. Really, until whatever happened with the ownership sale of the Hornets is more sorted out its not likely they would move the team’s one big draw and face of the marketing campaign.

So for now Paul is a Hornet. And still at least saying all the right things.
