Chris Paul on future with Clippers: ‘We just lost 20 minutes ago’

In some quarters, George drew praise for wanting the last shot. But he was castigated elsewhere for hammering a teammate.

He’s not a winner by saying that (stuff) in public, said Cheap China NFL Jerseys one GM. That’s no way to support a teammate, but that’s how Paul rolls.

He’s been erratic as a playoff performer, and has been called out for his lack of consistency by Indiana team president Larry Bird. But George is famously tougher on teammates than he is on himself, even when the team is winning a few rounds in the playoffs. When the Pacers competed against Miami for the top spot in the East in 2013 and 2014, they had strong veteran leaders like David West and George Hill. If Magic makes a deal for George or signs him as a free agent in 2018, he’ll need to import similar strong-willed vets, or else there is a good chance that George’s negativity will adversely impact younger teammates.

Chris Paul’s season is over, but that doesn’t necessarily mean his time with the Clippers is.

Shortly after Los Angeles’ Game 7 loss to Utah in its first-round NBA playoff Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys series, a reporter asked Paul whether he would exercise his early termination option in July.

Paul has played in 76 career postseason games, the most of any player without making a conference finals appearance. That includes a six-year stretch with the Clippers, who, with their loss to the Jazz on Sunday, have failed to make the second round of the playoffs two years running.

It wouldn’t be out of the question for Paul to consider leaving the Clippers for a team with a better shot of at least a conference title — and he certainly has that opportunity now that the fourth season of his contract with the Clippers has concluded.
