The best point guard on the planet is coming to Conseco Fieldhouse, which we just found out will not be renamed for CNO Financial (the new name of the re-branded sponsor company). This is perfect timing considering the trade proposal that 8 Points, 9 Seconds recently proposed to a Hornets 24/7 blogger during a game preview Q&A.
24/7: You are the Pacers GM and the Hornets are on the phone. We already made one deal this summer, make me another offer that benefits both teams.
Tim Donahue: We give you Conseco Fieldhouse to play in. We get Chris Paul. We’ll even deliver.
Seems fair to me.
I’m pretty tapped out for the day on this whole Pacers blogging thing, but you can read the rest of that Q&A for more on Darren Collison, James Posey and Tyler Hansbrough. If you’re not impressed enough already by CP3, check out this post on how well Chris Paul is doing so far this year statistically. Tragically, the sister and cousin of Hornets reserve guard Willie Green both died in a car accident last night on the way home from his game against the Detroit Pistons.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Willie and his family.
