If you haven't seen this gem from John Reid's article in the Times Pic, it's worth a look. Couple of quotes from the piece were particularly nice:

"A lot of times, you can play this game your whole life and not ever accomplish anything of this magnitude like Chris' steals record, " Hornets center Tyson Chandler said. "This young man is already in the NBA history books. It's huge, and I'm just happy to be part of it. It could not have come to a guy more deserving."

When Paul entered the locker room after Wednesday's game at the New Orleans Arena, a cake and balloons were at his locker -- sent by his parents from North Carolina.

"They must have known I was going to the get the record, so they had somebody to send the cake, " Paul said, smiling. "It's an unbelievable feeling. The best thing is being around people who are happy for you."

And we are all happy for you indeed.

Oh, and you'll probably have to click to enlarge the image before you can read all of the information. Enjoy.
