Chris Paul, who will likely be part of his own trade drama over next season, tweeted out his initial thoughts on the trade sending Deron Williams to New Jersey. And he didn't mince words. Tell us how you really feel, CP3.

CP3 deems the Deron Williams deal an 'epic fail'

Chris Paul is not goimg to the Knicks. Where are you getting your facts from? You got it twisted the PLAYERS MAKE THE LEAGUE not the OWNERS. Sounds like you have issues with BROTHERS making BIG MONEY and are trying to say it in a round about way. STOP watching BASKETBALL and switch to Hockey. You are the worst kind of HIPPOCRITE. You have some self esteem issues you should focus on instead of the Salaries of the Best Basketball players in the world.

You nailed it. And I hope they keep it in mind during the CBA. None of them are anything with out fans. Some might even be just another guy in the grocery store meat department. It's true what they say, you can't buy happiness.

CP3 deems the Deron Williams deal an 'epic fail'

It's called a blog and it's typically used to offer opinions and information that wouldn't otherwise be reported by mainstream news outlets, such as this tweet from Chris Paul which, if not mentioned by blogs, would never become a part of our NBA discussion.  And while you might not find it interesting, some of us do considering that Chris Paul is most likely seeking an exit of his own and might have just realized what can happen when your team does not let time expire allowing true free agency, a la Toronto and Cleveland, and takes matters into their own hands.

CP3 deems the Deron Williams deal an 'epic fail'

Maybe CP3, or as humans refer to him, Chris Paul, is miffed that now when he goes to the Knicks, he'll be the second best PG in the city, who will probably be schooled several times a year by his Brooklyn rival?

I hope the Nets do well in all this (and Denver and Utah too).  The Nets new owner is taking a chance and thats how people win big in this world.  Not catering and/or begging to their underlings, which the players are (whether they believe it or not).

I hope someday all these pampered, overpaid, under educated, over valued citizens realize that they'd all be working menial jobs and playing their sport in rec leagues if not for paying FANS.  The league has totally gone over to catering to players at the expense of the fans.  It has done this to the greatest extreme of any North American professional league and it will end badly for all these guys if things don't settle out.  With the bad economy, the fans can't afford to put up with overpaying to see these guys anymore.  Maybe the "association" will end up with 4 teams (LA, Chicago, Boston and NY) because those are the only places where players want to play AND the fan bases can overpay for this entertainment on a nightly basis.  Don't give me Miami because those guys play to partly filled stadiums at home every night.  They have the locale but not the rabid fan base...

Glad to see his college education did wonders for him.

WTH is this?

Is this what sports journalism has become?  Who cares what Chris Paul thinks and definitely who cares what he thinks while having to translate his twitter feeds!

"EPIC FAIL" for you Royce.
