CP3 is nothing but butter!



Chris Paul can flat out play basketball! I normally don't follow the NBA all that much unless one of my former Wake Forest players is on TV, but when the playoffs roll around it's kind of cool to watch some of the games. And with 4 Wake Forest alumni playing - Darius Songaila for Washington; Tim Duncan for San Antonio; Josh Howard for Dallas, (pictured above with Chris); and of course, Chris Paul for New Orleans - I can dream a little bit back to the glory days when Wake Forest basketball was doing much better than it has in recent years.

For his first two playoff games, Chris Paul has made a huge impression on the rest of the field and the shouts of MVP can be heard louder and clearer. In game 1 against Dallas he had 35 points and 10 assists and he followed that up by scoring 32 points to go with 17 assists in last night's game. Add to that 3.5 steals per game and you have the first player in history to average over 30 points, 10 assists, and 3 steals per game in the playoffs.

Many Wake Forest fans felt betrayed and wounded when Chris declared for the draft after his sophomore year, but it doesn't take long to realize that a) He was ready for the NBA, b) He is a great spokesman for Wake Forest University, and c) He is a class act all the way around. So while it hurts a little to see him abusing my boy Josh Howard and the Dallas Mavericks, I am pulling hard for Chris and the Hornets to go all the way.

WFU is making a strong showing the playoffs! As fun as it is to watch CP3, his life off the court is equally inspiring. Josh Howard needs to have a sit down with Paul and learn a thing or two.

Why are all these new "original" shows anything but original?
