So did Paul really raise his glass in toast at Carmelo Anthony's wedding and suggest that he was tempted to flee New Orleans for the bright lights of New York? And if he did, was it really a mortal sin? Professional sports are a constantly escalating arms race of money and talent and power and there is really no shame in admitting you'd rather not carry just a butter knife into a gunfight. Miami lost in the first round and came back with a bazooka. The Hornets didn't even make the playoffs and Paul simply wanted to know that they wouldn't go into this season with only the same slingshot dangling from their back pocket.

More of the Hornets bringing the wrong weapon to fights.

There's a report out there, saying Chris Paul wants to be out of New Orleans by the start of the 2010-2011 NBA season. If it's true, it sucks. If it's false, it's yet another made up rumor in the Summer of Lebron James Chris Paul. If you enjoy depression and/or laughter, feel free to find it.

The NBA Player Worth the Most Wins (It's Not LeBron) Points are important to wins, though overvalued. Rebounds, field goal percentage, turnovers and steals, important because they measure efficiency and creating (and maintaining) possession of the ball, get short shrift. Comparing each player's stats to the average production at his position in 2008-'09 (the current regular season having just been completed), New Orleans guard Chris Paul led the NBA with 22 more wins produced for his club than they'd have notched with an average point guard. Cleveland's LeBron James finished a close second (21.4 more wins than an average forward), followed by Dwight Howard and Dwayne Wade (about 16 extra wins apiece). Kobe Bryant (8.9 extra wins) ranked 12th.

"We had a lot of opportunities to win," Nuggets coach George Karl began, "but Chris Paul and his greatness was very evident at the end of that game." 30/19/9 and a +18 in a 6 point game? Are you kidding me? And another random note: I love Deron Williams so I hate to bash him, but dude was -36(!!!) tonight in a 13 point game. That has to be some sort of record, and it's weird to see two of the NBA's best be such polar opposites on the same day.
