Chris Paul unhappy about rumors he’ll join Jordan’s Bobcats

Paul’s comments on Twitter indicated he felt as though his words were taken out of context.

"Come on now people," Paul tweeted, "I did 3 different interviews about the Jordan Brand Classic this morning and was asked if Michael Jordan had influence on free agent signings and I said at the end of the day guys want to win…they askd would I want to return home and I told them I’m focused here in NO and that’s the future and anything can happen…Hate when people try to turn things around just to make it a story.. #slowdown."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: North Carolina’s prodigal son is tired of discussing a possible return home.

Chris Paul isn’t pleased with reporters for speculating he’ll leave the New Orleans Hornets for his hometown Charlotte Bobcats, who are owned by Michael Jordan.

Like most modern day superstars, he voiced his displeasure on what else -twitter.

Paul joining the Bobcats isn’t so far-fetched: he’ll be the prize of the 2012 free agent class, he already has a business relationship with MJ through Brand Jordan; Charlotte is still home.

However, Paul is unhappy with the Hornets because the league-owned franchise lacks the resources and market size to pay and attract co-stars. Of course, Jordan’s Bobcats have the same problem.

Both franchises will be hard pressed to win a championship –even if the new Collective Bargaining Agreement creates greater parity for the league’s have-nots.

So, why would Paul swap the Hornets’ problems for the Bobcats’?

He’ll surely try to partner with friends Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire. The New York Knicks would then form the newest super team, and the Paul brand would benefit from such a massive market.

Paul migrating home to Charlotte is unlikely. Instead, expect a migration up north.
