Chris Paul Releases Knicks Fans From Yet Another Wet Dream: Melo Still On The Rumor Board

Surely, there is a great reason to love the ones you got and to stop putting so much energy in the ones that might come if the stars, luxury tax, expired contracts and team assets all aligned properly.  With two years remaining on his contract, Chris Paul left his meeting with Hornets management and declared his love for New Orleans. CHRIS PAUL DID NOT DEMAND A TRADE TO THE KNICKS or any other team.  Apparently, the Hornets presented an impressive and creative plan that convinced Paul and his advisors, including his new agent Leon Rose, that they intended to compete with the Celtics and Lakers for a ring ASAP.  Through the team, Paul released the following statement which the Oneandolycp3 subsequently tweeted to his followers:

”The meeting went well. It was great to get an opportunity to sit down with coach Williams, president Weber and our new general manager, Dell Demps,  I expressed my desire to win and I like what they said about the direction that they want to take the team. I have been a Hornet my entire career and I hope to represent the city of New Orleans and state of Louisiana for many years to come.”

I guess those into OTP’s can still dream about Melo, at least until he signs that extension.  Do too many New York fans overvalue the lure of New York as a place for the best athletes?
