Clippers will still retire his jersey and give him a statue even if he leaves

Chill out, we know he'll stay. He's in a perfect situation. Clippers are thriving and FA's are attracted to the city and the team now. They just need a change of coach to get it done.

Actually his supposed wish list was Knicks, Clippers and Lakers. He wanted to be in LA or NY. Not sure if you believe him but he recently said in an article that he actually secretly hoped for the Clippers above any other team because of the legacy he could built turning around such a historically bad franchise. He compared it to being an underdog at Wake Forest.

There is every way of knowing based on the obvious facts and process of elimination. No other team in the NBA can offer him the same money+a chance to contend for years. Literally ZERO teams. Not to mention the Clippers are better than the Knicks (yes I know this is with him obviously) so I don't see what big upgrade he could have on the Knicks. Melo>Griffin but the rest of the Clippers>>>>>>>Knicks.

LeBron's freinds, family, and mansion worth more than Paul's were all in Ohio, not to mention he played, and lived his whole life there. He left for a better situation, and Paul will to if a better situation presents itself. You can't really blame the guy if he does, and if he doesn't then i'm glad because the Lakers will be the joke of LA for at least another year.

I'm not mad, sorry if it seems that way. Just being sincere that he's not leaving. He said the other day the Clippers have treated him amazing from day one and he's never been happier in his pro career. This is no Lebron situation. Clippers from day one have given him help and some say in players they acquire/keep. So it would be ironic if he left a team HE hand picked himself.

Atlanta with Howard, and Horford would be pretty stacked if you added in Paul.

CP3 and Dwight to the Hawks? It is possible financially.

Haven't you seen Howard this year? Nobody knows if he will ever be 2010 Dwight Howard again and even if he is... Horford+Howard is a bad mix and CP3 has a brotherhood here in LA. I see no reason why he leaves a growing, rapidly improving contender for a new situation.

The Clippers had the 3rd or 4th biggest win percentage turnaround in NBA history last year and have gotten a lot better this year already. Think of it from CP3's perspective. Your team is improving rapidly and went from lotto team to contender in just two seasons. You can get an extra 25 million cash AND you get to rack in all these extra endorsements and LA spotlight. I've never seen CP3 in tons of commercials like he is now.

His family loves LA like crazy and always talk about it.

..... because of him.

They are crap without him.

Barnes and Crawford are having career years. Bench is old. Griffin and Deandre are mediocre.

Perfect situation and Donald Sterling doesn't compute.
