Al Iannazzone sees a familiar pattern in Chris Paul's comments about wanting to represent New Orleans.
"So just because he said he's happy with the direction of the Hornets and likes the city, don't believe it," Iannazzone writes. "(Jason) Kidd used to say he wanted to end his career with the Nets all the time."
Iannazzone sees another parallel as well: the desire to play with other top players after a summer in the Team USA system.
"After Jason Kidd spent the 2007 summer with great players like James and Kobe Bryant he returned to the Nets, looked at Vince Carter much differently and ultimately forced his way out."
