At the beginning of the season, this came into question. Is Chris Paul going to re-sign. Overwhelming sources and analysts said yes, but now things are shaping a little bit differently. Due to another early playoff exit, Vinny Del Negro, the Clippers’ head coach is looking at possible unemployment. Chris Paul doesn’t want to play under him, and he wants to win.
That may seem a bit selfish, but of course it’s not when you actually think about it. No one can blame LeBron James for leaving Cleveland, a place he had absolutely no success in. Chris Paul’s only been with LAC for two seasons, and he’s turned the franchise around. Del Negro, however, has to to take 50% of the responsibility for failure. It’d be more if Griffin didn’t go and get injured.
Paul will likely re-sign with LAC, depending on what kind of transactions are made in the offseason, but it’s still going to be very interesting, because there’s a slight chance that he won’t. The Clippers may be in some deep trouble if he doesn’t do that. Is Eric Bledsoe good enough to run this Clipper team by himself? He may be full of potential, but he’s certainly no Chris Paul.
What do you think? What are Chris Paul’s Chances of re-signing with LAC?
