08:12 AM ET 09.20 | Chris Paul's long memory will give the Lakers-Clippers rivalry a brand new edge going forward. In the waning seconds of a close game [this past season], Lakers seven-footer Pau Gasol gently patted CP3 on the head after the two had exchanged words. Paul's ensuing freak-out led SportsCenter that night. Gasol made a tepid apology; six months later, Paul is still annoyed. "We call that sonnin'," he explains to me. "Like when I take [his son, Li'l Chris] to the bathroom, I'll walk with my hand on his head. That's my son. You know what I mean? I understand that Gasol is that tall, but don't do to me what I do to my son." ... "I've been fortunate to be short my entire life."

No.....I don't understand....he's upset cause he patted you on the head?Would he prefer getting stomped in the balls, as Chris did to that guy in college? THAT is reason to hold a grudge

It was a punch but good memory!

Good grief what a ridiculous thing to stay upset about.

He's got to fuel the rivalry somehow... I'm sure Gasol is still pretty peeved at how Blake Griffin crapped all over him during the season last year... Those were some nasty highlights LOL!! It's going to be one hell of a season I tell you...
