08:04 AM ET 09.21 | Credit Chris Paul for taking a different approach. Ever since Paul sat down with the management from the Hornets, he's done nothing but say the right things. Maybe he is giving them a real chance. Maybe he realized he has little leverage now but will in a year (like Carmelo Anthony does now). Maybe he realized that his agent and people pushing for a trade in a semi-public way drove down his trade value. Maybe some combination of the above. For now CP3 keeps saying the right things, as he did on the satellite radio station The Score when asked if New Orleans is where he wants to be. "Yeah exactly. That is where I am going to be. I love it. I love it."

If anyone read what I just said for the Dan Gilbert post, I believe the same applies here.

I cetainly hope Paul is still in New Orleans during Mardi Gras because I'll be in Louisiana and would like to see him play.

They can atleast switch up the picture every now and then.

I still have a feeling he'd end a Knick along with Carmelo. The wedding toast has to materialize to let the bourgeoisie know who runs the league.

He needs to be real careful w/ his "loving NO", lest he end up LeBronning himself.

Then you'll love LA, Bro.

Paul realized he is UNDER FREAKIN CONTRACT AND HE DONT RUN CRAP

Is it really CP3 talking or is it LRMR? If he was being truthful then he should sign an extension, right? LOL.

Why?

It's still CP in the photo.....ain't it???

With the way superstars are jumping ship it might be best just to trade him now and get something of value for him....same goes for the Nuggets.

It's funny how when the Team calls his bluff and he realized he's not going anywhere...

All of sudden: N.O. ain't that Bad

your not following the Anthony rumors... He's going to get traded... just not to the Knicks. And with no Anthony why would Paul want to come to the Knicks? It's about the same situation he has in N.O.

Dont buy it for a second

He hates the lack of talent - maybe will like the new owner - maybe they will make some changes - he feels for the gulf coast fans. The only reason he was driven down is too soon after Lebron.

Dont be double-minded CP.

Oh he's not. He still wants out. He just needs to say he loves it to build his PR back up. Plus it doesn't matter if he 'loves it'. It didn't appear they were letting him go anywhere.
