Video: GQ’s Chris Paul Cover Launch Party Sponsored By Hennessy

Video Coverage of GQ and Hennessy's CP3 cover launch party.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: HoopsVibe talks one-on-one with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Terrell Ownes, and more at CP3's GQ cover release party.

HoopsVibe is on location at Sayers Club in Hollywood, CA to cover the Chris Paul GQ release party sponsored by Hennessy. The stars walked the red carpet as we caught up with some of the NBA's most popular players just as they are set to return to camp for the 2012-2013 season. 

The event was put together by Hennessy and GQ Magazine to celebrate Chris Paul's first ever GQ cover. Watch Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan dish on which Clipper have the worst fashion sense as Matt Barnes and Chris Paul talk about trying to find clothes they're wives dig. Even T.O. chats with HoopsVibe about how Sports influence fashion and fashion influences Sports. 

It's a classy night for a classy man, as CP3 leads the Clippers to the promise land of style. Hennessy handles the party with R&B-Pop sensation "Miguel" killing it on the mic. See how this amazing night all got started as HoopsVibe chats with NBA All-Stars and Hollywood celebs on the red carpet.

CP3′s GQ Cover Release Party By Hennessy

CP3′s GQ Cover Release Party By Hennessy

Hennessy and GQ team up to celebrate CP3's first GQ cover.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: With a combo like Hennessy and GQ at the Sayers Club in Hollywood, it's safe to say this will be one banging event.

I showed up to the Sayers Club in Hollywood expecting an incredible night. The second I heard Hennessy and GQ were teaming up for CP3's October GQ cover release party, I knew this was going to be an amazing event. Plus, the confirmed celebs on the press Tip Sheet included names like Blake Griffin, Kid Cudi, Terrell Owens, Magic Johnson, Lamar Odom (could the Kardashian clan show up?), and Grant Hill, along with a number of Hollywood actors. This was my kind of crowd. Ok, my crowd is usually waiting in line at Target for a price check, but I could definitely get used to an upgrade, NBA / Hollywood style.

When I got there the the Hennessy and GQ reps as well as the manager of the Sayers Club greeted me, all were super chill. We set up and soon enough Caron Butler strolled down the red carpet in the VIP entrance of the Sayers Club. Not only did he have time for the press, but he also granted HoopsVibe an exclusive interview along with all of the Clippers as they arrived (keep an eye out these will be edited and on the site soon). This was going to be a good night. 

Having interviewed everyone from CP3 and Blake Griffin to TO, and Agent Zero, the red carpet was a wrap and it was time to head inside and enjoy the night. As I approached the bar I accidentally bumped into Talib Kweli. Oops. My bad, Talib, don't tell Mos Def. This high class elbow-rubbing was going to take some getting used to.  

The bar was of course serving Hennessy specialty drinks and who was I to disagree. CP3 and the Clippers socialized in the center of the room as the satellite celebs circled. The amazing Prince inspired R&B-Pop band "Miguel" soon took the stage and NBA All-Stars transformed into fans as they whipped out their iPhones to grab photos and video of the group primed for a mass appeal explosion. 

After the band had finished their set, CP3 hopped on the mic thanking everyone for coming out to celebrate his cover. GQ handed out copies of the October issue and I made sure to grab one. I mentioned I still shop at Target, right? This was an upscale night for an NBA All-Star that is just as classy off the court as he is on it.

Chris Paul caught partying at Voyeur

Chris Paul caught partying at Voyeur

Chris Paul and Caron Butler caught partying the night away with playoffs about to start.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: These Clippers looked more focused on picking up girls than winning games.

          

The DJ had the music blasting, the club dancers were topless, the drinks were flowing, and the party was definitely on at Club Voyeur in Los Angeles Friday night. The special guests getting their party on were two Clippers one would expect to be resting up with the NBA playoffs starting in a week. Instead, Chris Paul and Caron Butler felt like blowing off some steam at one of LA's most notorious nightclubs. Paul and Butler were the center of attention at Voyeur Friday night with the MC even getting on the mic to announce, "We've got Chris Paul in the house tonight" numerous times. 

Voyeur is one of LA's wildest nightclubs. It's where known partiers like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton have danced the night away. Paul and Butler looked to be having a great time at the party and stayed until the very end. Then they grabbed a few girls and darted out the backdoor.

Normally NBA players partying at clubs is no big deal, but with the playoffs starting on April 28th one would hope CP3 would have more on his mind than a banging party. Yet, this appeared to be exactly what the LA star was interested in last night.

The Clippers are 4th in the Western Conference and in the midst of one of their best seasons in recent history. This season has brought the birth of Lob City to LA with the recipe of CP3 connecting with high fliyers like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. The question is do the Clippers have the focus to win in the playoffs. While teams like the Lakers are resting key players like Kobe Bryant to ensure he's fresh for the playoffs, the Clippers appear content to party the night away.

Chauncey and CP3 vs. Kidd, KJ and Nash

When the Clippers acquired Chauncey Billups by claiming him off of waivers from the Knicks and then acquired Chris Paul via trade about a week later, they suddenly became as deep at the PG position as any team in the league. The combination of Billups, a five time all-star, NBA champ and Finals MVP with Paul, also a five time all-star and all NBA first team performer, have the Clippers off to their best start in years, currently sitting atop the Pacific Division.
