• A former Clipper said Chris Paul is hard to play with
  • No one in NBA wants Paul
  • Paul thinks Oklahoma City Thunder can win

A former Los Angeles Clipper talked about how hard it was to play with Chris Paul.

With exceptional playmaking skills and ability to score in various ways, the NBA didn’t find it hard to dub Paul as “The Point God.” However, as the elite point guard developed into one of the best players of all time, he was also perceived by his teammates as an agitator. Some of his past teammates think that his competitiveness leaves no place for joy and for Nick young, “CP3” often used his superstar status to impose his importance on the team.

Speaking on Certified Buckets, “Swaggy P” recalled some of his bad experiences with Paul. According to Young, Paul once said something about his free agency suggesting that he had to obey him as it would be the key to his contract extension.

“He said something to me like ‘Remember, I’m the key to your next contract.‘ and stuff like that,” Young recalled.

Aside from playing with Young’s head about his contract, the former Clippers sharpshooting guard also stated one in-game trait that he hated about Paul. Apparently, Paul “never wanted to turn the ball over” and would often hand the ball to Young or any teammate when the clock is about to expire.

“I hated when I played with Chris Paul, he would pass it to you at the last minute. He never wanted that turnover, or take that last shot. He’d be like dribble, dribble, dribble and then he’d pass it to you with 1-2 seconds on the clock,” Young revealed.

Last July, another former Clipper spoke the truth about Paul’s attitude. Kenyon Martin, who played as a back-up power forward for the team in the past, said that the All Star point guard always “wanted to be biggest voice in the room.”

"People have heard these things before about Chris Paul, not only from me but other teammates. He always wants to be the biggest voice in the room when it comes to basketball and I think that rubs guys the wrong way,” Martin said.

Paul is currently playing for an Oklahoma City Thunder team that has been reportedly open to sell his contract. However, an anonymous NBA executive recently revealed that "no one wants CP3."

Earlier this month, Paul stated that he is good with where he is right now. The former “Lob City” point guard said “he loves to hoop too much” and as long as they play together as a team, “they have a chance to win.”
