Chris Paul, who also serves as the NBPA president, considered taking a helicopter to attend, but couldn’t get out of a previous family commitment in Los Angeles, a source said. The NBA, USA Basketball and the NBPA collaborated to offer strong support as well. Five police officers manned the grounds at the gated venue. “I didn’t expect the commitment from the other athletes,” Anthony said. “I thought USA Basketball and the NBA could be on board. I was doing it myself at first. I was just going to come in and have a conversation. It wasn’t going to be this big gathering or NBA town hall. It was just going to be a conversation with a couple officers, a couple of youth.”

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul won’t be a free agent until next offseason, but his mentality on free agency was made clear based on his advice to Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who shocked the basketball world this summer with his departure from the Oklahoma City Thunder. “It’s free agency, you know. You get the ability to choose,” Paul told USA TODAY Sports after an event at the Boys & Girls Club of Chicago on Monday. “I remember I told KD, ‘man this is one of the only times in your career where you get to pick and choose where you want to play and where you want to live. Enjoy it.’ His decision, it is what it is. I’m happy for him.”
