When Chris Paul was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in December 2011, the infamous toast Paul gave at Carmelo Anthony's wedding regarding them playing together looked as thought it was just a pipedream. The Knicks had missed their chance, opting to sign Tyson Chandler from the Dallas Mavericks when Paul became too expensive a commodity.
Now, the chance may have arisen again.
With the star Point Guard out of contract at the end of the season, reports coming out of Los Angeles suggest Paul could be ready to walk out on the Clippers. If the stories are to believed, Paul is furious that he is being made the scapegoat for Coach Vinny Del Negro's firing, with claims suggesting it was Paul who wanted Del Negro gone and used his contract situation as leverage in the Clippers' decision making process.
