Chris Paul Talks To HoopsVibe About Trade Rumors, Championships, and Gregg Popovich.

by Basketball John

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.

Today In NBA History 1993: Larry Bird’s Jersey Retired

by Paul Eide


20 years ago tonight, the Boston Celtics retired Larry Bird’s famous #33 jersey.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: “Larry Legend” is arguably the best player in NBA history.

The occasion of retiring Bird’s jersey was so special that they dedicated an entire evening to it, even though there wasn’t a game, and sold out the Boston Garden.

The two-hour ceremony gave Bird a proper send off as #33 was forever hoisted to the rafters. The most favorite highlight of that night was when Larry’s nemesis Magic Johnson showed up with a Boston Celtics t-shirt under his Lakers warm-up gear, which you can see in the video above.


Bird is easily one of the best players in NBA history, if not the absolute best. Just take a quick gander at the career highlights and awards section of his Wikipedia page. Three time champion, two time Finals MVP, three time regular season MVP, 12 time all-star, 1980 Rookie of the Year, 1982 All-Star Game MVP, nine-time All-NBA first team; it just goes on and on.

For as great as he was as a player, he’s been equally great in the front office.

Last year, he was named the NBA Executive of the Year. As a coach, with no prior head coaching experience, Bird won NBA Coach of the Year honors in his first season and led the Pacers to back to back Central Division titles, including an NBA Finals birth in 2000. He retired following that season, but was then hired to the Pacers’ front office in 2003, took over for Donnie Walsh in 2008 and ever since has had a huge hand in making the team what it has become.

Bird is the only person to have ever won even the MVP and Coach of the Year award, and the only person to ever add the Executive of the Year award to that stack as well.
Where does Bird stack up in your own personal top five NBA players? Remember if it comes down to him versus Michael Jordan, you’ll always have at least one option to settle it.
