Default with CP3

Life for Chris Paul is never slow. The summer is filled with basketball camps, strenuous workouts and a trip to China to promote his affiliation with Brand Jordan shoes and sportswear. And after that, there's a full slate of exhibition, regular-season and (he hopes) playoff games to navigate in a brutally competitive Western Conference.

The 24-year-old Hornets point guard recently found a few minutes after his second CP3 basketball camp for the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Louisiana to share his thoughts on the Hornets' big offseason trade, his relationship with LeBron James and more. Preseason darlings in the eyes of many, the Hornets struggled to find their groove last season. Can you put your finger in what was missing? Did the team start reading its press clippings?

Chris Paul: I think we all need to get a little bit more killer [instinct] in us. We have to want it more. That's something that we'll talk about in training camp. Everybody has to know it doesn't start when the playoffs start; it starts from Day One -- that's when we have to build our identity. Coach [Byron] Scott always says if everybody comes back 1 percent better, that will make our team better. So I'll try to do my part and come back better than I was last year. How have you approached that goal this summer?

CP: I'm not really doing anything on the court right now, but I've been working out all summer, just trying to make sure my body is in top shape when the season comes around.
