As recently as December, (Chris) Paul was in (Dwight) Howard’s exact situation. Paul still was a member of the team that drafted him, the New Orleans Hornets. But Paul was unhappy with the Hornets’ direction and was able to become a free agent during the summer of 2012.
No wonder Paul has given Howard some advice on how to deal with Howard’s situation with the Orlando Magic.
“Just keep playing hard and doing what he’s doing,” Paul said after his new team, the Los Angeles Clippers, prepared to play Howard’s Magic on Monday.
