Chris Paul is upset with the Los Angeles Clippers organization because he is being widely blamed for the firing of Vinny Del Negro as the Clippers' coach, according to a source close to the situation.

 

How much of an impact this will have on Paul's decision to re-sign with the Clippers as a free agent is not clear, but the source conceded that Paul's anger could lead him to look elsewhere.

 

"He's angry right now and his anger is directed toward the Clippers organization," the source said. "Chris is a man of principle and if he feels like you've gone against his principles, it will affect how he feels about you. He's very agitated that his name has been put out there as the reason for Vinny's firing. He had nothing to do with it." 

...

 

Sterling told Times columnist T.J. Simers that Del Negro "is a wonderful man" and that he's "sad about the whole thing."

 

Simers wrote that he asked Sterling if Del Negro was fired "just to hang on to Chris Paul."

 

Sterling said: "I always want to be honest and not say anything that is not true. So I'd rather not say anything. But you know, the coach did a really good job. I think he did. And I liked working with him. There are just factors that make life very complicated and very challenging."

 

Simers then wrote that he asked Sterling if he was "off base" to say the "players are now calling the shots?"

 

"No, you're not off base," Sterling replied. "This is a players' league, and, unfortunately, if you want to win, you have to make the players happy."

 

Simers later quoted Sterling as saying, "If you have special players, and special players think that they know the best opportunity to win, you have to support them."

So CP3 is pissed at Sterling.  How he can be angry at such a fantastic owner is beyond me  :cool2:

Do the easy thing Chris. Don't make it so complicated for you and your family all settled in in Los Angeles already. Just come across to the Lakers, very simple.


yo.

I haven't really been keeping up with CP3 news but is it really CP3's fault why Vinny was fired?

No one really knows for sure but Sterling's quotes really throw CP3 under the bus, basically saying that it was because of him.

Donald Sterling makes Jim Buss like a genius! In all seriousness, I wouldn't be surprised if Paul don't sign with the Clippers (I still he will re-sign though).

So CP3 is willing to accept less money because of the situation. Come back to the Lakers and stick it to the Clips, Chris.

Chris acting like all fans don't already know players get coaches fired.

 

Truly incredible how CP3 has followed a path similar to Dwight and has faced zero criticism.

Not surprised. The same genius that drafted the likes of Michael olwakandi. Cp3s confidence level with the clippers must be at an all time low. Still a long shot he comes to the lakers. I think he's still seeking long term security with a big contract. But boy clippers are still the clippers lmao

No, they'll hire Mike D'antoni after the Lakers fire him and get Phil back which will make Dwight re-sign and CP3 to follow him here for the mMLE.


..... it could happen.... :bounce:

Lol. Pincus and Soriano both call out fans for bringing the idea that CP will sign for the mini-mle.

I mentioned this in the Dwight Howard topic, but it would be great if Houston goes after CP3. I think he could help them out even more than Dwight Howard could and it would obviously help the Lakers keep Dwight. If he's fine medically, I would consider him over Dwight if I were the Rockets.
