Re: NBA 2k8 Cover Star..... Chris Paul!
I bet the NBA would kind of nudge them to do this they are fighting an uphill battle trying to win back New Orleans. There's no real reason for a player who didn't make the playoffs or all-star game to be on the cover.
As far as CP goes, people will remember him again next year he will have a breakout season if most of this roster is healthy unlike last season
The Hornets brass is building the team the right way around him, unfortunately they have failed miserably in building the fan base.
