What could he possibly do that's going to damage the development of the young guys more than the offense we've employed? Guys may hate him, but it's still going to be beneficial in terms of learning to work and run offenses.
I don’t want the next generation of stars to have the sense of entitlement and arrogance we’ve seen the last few years with the technicals, trash talking etc. Let’s actually quit talking about being like the spurs and actually do it.
Chris Paul is a good player on the court. I just don’t want him taking a guy like Shai and trying to go into an opposing teams locker room to fight guys. Or I don’t want him stunting development of young guys because some cranky malcontent criticizes them non stop. Like I said, he’ll be fine if he’s gone by the all star break.
