Chris Paul Helps The L.A. Clippers Sell Out Of Season Tickets For The First Time Ever
Talk about return on investment! Just hours after the Los Angeles Clippers successfully traded for long time New Orleans Hornet point guard Chris Paul, there was confirmation that the team had officially sold out of season tickets for the first time in franchise history!
If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say that some of those season ticket holders are disgruntled Laker fans. Sources say the Lakers are secretly pissed behind closed doors that they didn't acquire Paul with their initial trade that was rejected by NBA commissioner David Stern.
In place of Paul, the New Orleans Hornets got Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu, and a first round draft pick in 2012. The fact that most of you probably don't recognize any of those names goes hand in hand with the fact that while the Clippers have sold out of season tickets for the upcoming season, the New Orleans Hornets have not.
I'm just stoked to see a whole lot of Chris Paul to Blake Griffin highlights.
