Chris Paul chats with HoopsVibe after practice about trade rumors, championships, and Gregg Popovich.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: When CP3 answers a question you should pay attention.
Chris Paul talks candidly about what is next for the Los Angeles Clippers and CP3. Humble as always, Paul deflects any individual accolades and instead focuses on the task ahead. Now that the Clippers are finally healthy with Chauncey Billups back, could they be a championship team? They've beaten the Spurs 2 out of 3 games this season and are looking to make the leap to the next level.
Fresh off his MVP performance at All Star Weekend, Paul remains calm, confident, and focused when looking ahead. He knows there is a lot of basketball left in the season and that the Clippers have a long way to go. He also doesn't pay much attention to any of the trade rumors surrounding the Clippers. These include rumors that Boston Celtic big-man Kevin Garnett could be coming to LA or that fellow point guard Eric Bledsoe may be headed out of town.
CP3 remains positive about the chemistry on his team and their outlook for the second half of the season.Read More

HoopsVibe Catches Clippers Coach Cracking Jokes And Talks Moving Forward With Blake Griffin And Eric Bledsoe.
Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro jokes around as Griffin and Bledsoe talk about winning without CP3.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: CP3 is out, but Bledsoe steps up. This is a Clippers team with serious depth. The question is how long can the Clippers continue their winning ways with a young point guard like Beldsoe and not their veteran general in Chris Paul? With Billups and Paul out with injuries how concerned is LA about this season's playoff run?

"It's tough because it's the nature of the business,'' Davis said in an interview with FanHouse before the Clippers' 108-103 win over Phoenix on Sunday about the trade rumors surrounding him. "But it's tough because I don't want to leave. I'm here. I came here for a reason. If I were to be traded, I just think that I just never really got a chance to do what I was signed here to do.''
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Well, play like it.
Baron Davis has to play like he wants to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers. At this point, his words are meaningless.
Since signing with the Clippers as a free agent, Davis has made an award winning documentary film, become a spokesperson for Jenny Craig, lost a laptop, and made a classic skit with Steve Nash.
Off-the-court he’s been good. On-court is a different story.
For the better part of two years, Davis has been out of shape, apathetic, and a distraction. In short, he’s stolen money from owner Donald Sterling.
Of course, the NBA is a business. The Clippers have moved on. Davis has been replaced by young Eric Bledsoe in the starting line-up. And high-flying Blake Griffin is the new face of the franchise.
So the Clippers have no need for Davis. Neither do the other 29 teams in the league, who are reluctant to assume the final two years and $29 million on Davis’ contract.
Davis, to an extent, controls his fate, though. He must lose weight. He must start to care again. And he must resemble the player the Clippers signed as a free agent.
Then management may consider Davis’ wishes about staying. Right now, he's an afterthought.
