Chris Paul is happy to be back in Oklahoma, where his professional actually career began, according to an Associated Press report.
Paul came into the National Basketball Association in the 2006-2006 season, when the then New Orleans Hornets relocated to Oklahoma after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Paul played a total of two years in Oklahoma as part of the Hornets. And he is just happy to be back.
“The people here, the fans here, make this city what it is,” he said. “It’s crazy. Our life comes full circle. Now I have two kids. To bring them out here -- they came out here this weekend to see me, them and my wife -- it’s cool to give them perspective because it changes.”
Though people may think that he has some ill feelings for the Houston Rockets who traded him in exchange for Russell Westbrook, Paul is looking forward to the next season with excitement.
“I’m excited,” he said. “It’s funny because a lot of people try to tell your truth, try to tell your story, say what you want and a lot of different kinds of stuff. I’m excited about the opportunity, excited about our team and excited about Billy.”
Paul averaged 15.6 points and 8.2 assists last season.
