Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul, who is featured on the covers of October's GQ , told the magazine he actually preferred being traded to the Clippers rather than the Los Angeles Lakers last year.
"They had the better pieces," Paul said. "And winning with the Clippers would be legendary."
Last year NBA commissioner David Stern nixed a trade that would have sent Paul from the then league-owned New Orleans Hornets to the Lakers in a package that would have included Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. A week later he was traded to the Clippers instead.
Paul also said he was still irritated about being patted on the head by Gasol when the Lakers played the Clippers last season, causing the two to be separated in the waning seconds of the game.
"We call that sonnin'," Paul said. "Like when I take Li'l Chris to the bathroom, I'll walk with my hand on his head. That's my son. You know what I mean? I understand that Gasol is that tall, but don't do to me what I do to my son."
The Clippers' training camp begins on Oct. 1. The Clippers will play the Lakers in a preseason game Oct. 24 and their first regular season game will be Nov. 2.
Fisher back to the Lakes? Video here, http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/09/18/free-agent-fisher-works-out-with-lakers/
EL SEGUNDO(CBSLA.com) Training camp is still two weeks away, but the Los Angeles Lakers held an informal workout Tuesday in El Segundo for their newcomers.
Derek Fisher, who is a free agent, was also in hand along with 1st-year Laker Steve Nash for the pre-training workouts.
Fisher was traded to the Houston Rockets last season, but then was released a few days later and picked up by the Oklahoma City Thunder off waivers.
“It’s great to be able to come here a couple of weeks before training camps, and then have training camp,” said veteran Antawn Jamison. “As a veteran you hate the eight preseason games, but this is a situation where it goes to your favor.”
Dwight Howard(back) did not participate in any workouts and is expected to miss the preseason opener.
