CP3 news and highlights 

Post#1 » by Saberestar » Thu Nov 19, 2020 3:17 pm

"It was a tough situation for us, because in order to acquire Chris, we had to move away from four guys that have helped build our culture,” Jones said Wednesday.

“It was a tough decision, but we knew we were getting exactly what you’ve seen over the last two days (with Paul already working out with Booker) — a Hall of Famer, an All-Star, a leader, a winner, a guy that lives and breathes basketball 24/7. And that’s the type of leader and personality that we need, those are the traits we want all of our guys to embody".

“It’s big for us not just because of Chris’ name but because of his game. We know we’ll get a guy who is here early, leaves late and will never let his teammates quit.”

On the latest "The Timeline" podcast, the guys from the OKC podcast join in and discuss Chris paul

They talk about Paul's extensive role in helping mentor SGA. It's pretty amazing how much Chris Paul put into mentoring him.

Kinda makes me wish we would have drafted a point guard. Not necessarily above Smith, but had we owned another pick, I think Paul could have done wonders for a rookie guard

Even though Booker is close to being a superstar (imo) he can still learn from a guy like CP3. CP3's mentorship won't be wasted in this team.

We can draft one next summer. 4 projected in lottery and 4 more in between 21 and 28 in what they say is a great draft class.
