Default Vinny del Negro on Chris Paul: “He needs to lose a few pounds”

Looks like Clippers curse is back.

Quote:
After the game, Clippers coach Vinny del Negro suggested his new star has not come to camp as ready as can be, via ESPNLosAngeles.com.

“He’s gonna lose a few pounds,” Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said of Paul. “Right now, when you come in, the play-sets are a little bit different. In my game, if you’re a step slow, you’re in trouble.”

Way to make points with the team’s new star, coach.

Bitter. Sour grapes. Jealous. Desperate. Pissed. Mad.

He was reported to be out of shape during a few of the pickup games he played in, too. You got to wonder why that. All his friends (LBJ,Wade,Melo,Stat) all stayed in shape and/or improved themselves someway. Paul seems to have not. Gotta wonder how much his knee is bothering him.

Doesn't extra weight put more pressure on the knee? I wouldn't know cause I've never had a knee injury or been really heavy

If it's not the OP posting this it's gonna be someone else, so I don't see why it's a shitty thread just because dude is a Laker fan.

It's actually good to see Vinny telling his new superstar he needs to drop some weight and being open about it.

I don't think it's a big issue though, he'll lose the weight he needs to.

Chris Paul looks anorexic compared to Raymond Cupcake Felton. A lot of players need to lose weight by the way. They've had extra time off.

Dude, Shut the fuclk up with this injury crap. Been hearing it since 2008. If he was really that hurt, you think the hornets training staff would have let him play last year? Wouldn't Clippers be more cautious? The truth is CP3 is overrated, he is a system PG. He will never benefit from Del Negros offensive system. His assists will go down. He will get exposed.
