Chris Paul Misses Rasual Butler

The Butler trade this summer caught CP-3 by surprise: “Paul said the Hornets’ recent trade of Rasual Butler to the Los Angeles Clippers affected him, because he and Butler shared a unique relationship. ‘Oh, man, to tell you the truth, that hurt me,’ Paul said. ‘Rasual is my guy, somebody I’m really close to. Him and David West were the only two guys who’ve been on my team every year since I’ve been a rookie. But that kind of caught me off guard and hit close to home. He was my guy.”‘

    So basically CP3 lost 2 buddies this offseason. He does not sound like a happy camper.

    Kind of reminds me of when Malik Rose was traded from the Spurs and Tim Duncan was heated. Hope CP3 can do what Duncan did and be a professional about this, and just play on. I got no doubt he will though.

    Welcome to the NBA.

  • chingy

    lol @ lebrongoat… you said he’d have a ring soon enough, then realized kobe and the lakers were still out west… then you changed your statement.

    hahahaha nice. i should expect that much from someone who thinks lebron is the greatest of ALL time.

    When can Chris opt out?

  • Mike Klander

    So New Orleans succeeded in removing a great role player and upsetting their star player. Yes it sounds like that franchise is on the right track!

  • Ken

    As long as he doesn’t react the way Steve Francis did when Cat Mobley was traded.

  • tavoris

    Ken..kinda sounds like the same kind of mourning…

    5ive gum…a whole box? Thats a big deal – I don’t think Lamar Odom woulda gave up a whole box?!

  • ENDS

    Lamar is that Winterfrsh thats starts cool in ur mouth but than Discinagrates after half an hour or when you need it the most

    dw Chris, u can start a “unique” relationship with Okafor, well “fit in” just fine…

  • http://www.mynameinblue.blogspot.com Hisham

    discinagrates… wow

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    Heh, now yours doesn’t look so bad in the Haddadi topic Hisham. Granted you only missed the C key.
    Not like Disc + ingrates + an extra A. Next time go with: “loses flavor.”
