Saw an NBA rant calling the CP3 veto "forced socialism." It's not like the NBA is the freest free market thing in American sports, you know.

FINAL: Clippers 106, Bucks 102. Chris Paul with 27 points and 9 assists.

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin with the tip-in off the CP3 miss and that will do it. Clippers 106, Bucks 102 with 5 seconds left.

Arash Markazi

Halftime: Bucks 52, Clippers 50. Chris Paul with game-high 13 points and 5 assists.

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Bucks 52, Clippers 50. CP leads all scorers with 13 points and five assists.

John Ireland

7 reserves: Harden, CP3, Russ, Lillard, ADavis, Aldridge, Dirk. Can't cut a voted in guy. Could no Spurs really make it? Can't see it

Dan McCarney

Somewhere, Chris Paul nods his head approvingly.

Ryan Ward

As if the Pacific Division didn’t already have a surplus of talented PGs. W/ Williams: Curry, CP3, Dragic, Bledsoe & Thomas. Oh, & Lin

Bill Simmons

PS: We broke down all the dominoes from CP3's trade veto on the Grantland Basketball Hour (re-runs Sunday 7pm ESPN2). espn.go.com/video/clip?id=…

In my 2009 NBA book I ranked the 33 biggest "What Ifs?" Could the CP3 Trade Veto or Harden Trade crack this top-8? books.google.com/books?id=2zRCU…

What If Chris Paul Was Actually Traded To The Lakers: espn.go.com/video/clip?id=… Great Video-Infographic by @Bill Simmons #SportsBiz

Dan Woike

. @Chris Paul basically asked the media to look up how many FTs he's shot in the past four games. It's 7, but 6 were on Wednesday

Bill Simmons

On the Grantland Basketball Hour last night, we broke down all the ways the @Chris Paul trade veto affected the current NBA. espn.go.com/video/clip?id=…

Ben Bolch

Clippers had 3 chances to tie on three-pointers on final possession but Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick and CP3 all miss. Nuggets win, 109-106.

Bill Simmons

The West All-Star guard crew is all-time overloaded: Curry, Harden, Dame, CP3, Westbrook, Klay, Conley... Jesus. (And Kobe gets voted in?)

Dan Woike

Halftime: Clippers down 59-43. Griffin with 14, CP with 11 but LAC shooting only 35.4 percent.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul showing some heart with seven consecutive points for Clippers.

Dan Woike

Chris Paul scores 7-straight for the Clippers, including a 3 he had to make -- Nate Robinson was guarding Blake Griffin when he shot it.

Dan Woike

#weed MT @RowanKavner @me There was also a lady who cheered for Chris Paul, booed J.J. Redick and was apathetic toward Blake Griffin.

Mico Halili

What if Stern allowed CP3 to go to the Lakers in 2011? Ahhh the "what could have been" Domino Effect via @Grantland33 espn.go.com/video/clip?id=…

Chris Mannix

Good to see Kendrick Perkins is still the spokesperson for Rajon Rondo. Perk, remember, kick started the Rondo-CP3 rivalry a few years back.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul on Rajon Rondo trade: "It doesn’t mean anything until you see how a team plays."

Ben Bolch

Talked to Chris Paul about Rondo trade and he mentioned when Pau Gasol went to Lakers. Sure he remembers when Gasol nearly left too.

Aaron J. Lopez

If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend checking out matchup between CP3 and @Ty Lawson tonight at Pepsi Center.

Cengiz Keçeli

David Stern'ün Chris Paul'un Lakers'a takasını veto etmesi ile domino taşları etkisi ile olabilecek olan farklılıklar m.espn.go.com/general/video?…

Michael Dugat

For those that care about such matters, Rondo becomes 2nd highest rated player on Mavs in 2K15 at 85 (Dirk 89, TC and Ellis 83, CP 80).

Jeff Caplan

West PGs: GS: Curry Mem: Conley OK: W'brook SA: TP LAC: CP3 Dal: Rondo Por: Lillard NO: Holiday Phx: Dragic/Bledsoe Den: Lawson Min: Rubio

Chris Mannix

Rooting for a Clippers-Mavericks playoff series, if only for seven games of Rondo-CP3. Not much love lost between those two.

Alex Kennedy

Too many star guards in West and they can't all make All-Star team: Curry, Harden, Westbrook, CP3, Rondo, Lillard, Kobe, Klay, Parker, etc.

Royce Young

Should go without noting, but Chris Paul has played three more seasons and 191 more games than Westbrook.

Royce Young

Number of career 20-5-5 games: -Chris Paul: 128 -Russell Westbrook: 112 -Steph Curry: 79 -Tony Parker: 62 -John Wall: 51 -Kyrie Irving: 32

Retweet this if you want to send Chris Paul to the 2015 NBA All-Star Game in NYC. #NBABallot #VoteLAC #BeRelentless http://t.co/yTaY22sKGM

Ryen Russillo

When you tweet "Chris Paul has been terrible in the playoffs" it makes me feel so much better that we disagree on things.

Jeff Wade

Ball stopper and ball dominant does not mean the same thing. For example: Chris Paul is ball dominant. Melo is both.

Arash Markazi

CP3 on wearing the shirt: "We all have a platform. I have kids of my own and I’m trying to teach them about the world and the community."

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul wore an "I can't breathe" t-shirt during his post-game presser. He said he wants to use the platform that he has as an athlete.

Arash Markazi

Dan Woike

Two DeAndre Jordan free throws give LAC a lead, 94-93. Then a CP3 jumper. Maybe signs of life?

Candace Buckner

Chris Paul was not born to assist on that play.

Greg Rappaport

Chris Paul's court vision is on another plane of existence. The man sees in the fourth dimension.

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford chatting with Lil Wayne before the start of the second half.

Greg Rappaport

Oof a tough turnover from Sloan leads to Chris Paul doing Chris Paul things. Hibbert about to check back in.

David Alarcon

Boston pide por Rondo lo mismo que hace 4 años, cuando casi sale por Chris Paul. Si se va será por menos: es libre en 2015 y peores números.

Michael Lee

Chris Paul on basing worth on rings: “That’s just the world we live in...but what can you do? I’m going to compete." wapo.st/1uWwcRK

Mark Followill

JJ Barea moved into top spot in the NBA in assist/turnover ratio last night, exactly 5.00. Chris Paul who lead the league last yr is 2nd

Alex Kennedy

Damian Lillard is also fifth in the NBA in Win Shares, behind only Anthony Davis, Steph Curry, James Harden and Chris Paul.
