The Assist: Chris Paul celebrates 28th birthday with Clippers teammates [photos]


It’s no secret that both LA NBA franchises have huge off seasons coming up. Both the Lakers and the Clippers are hoping their unrestricted free agents return to the fold. The fact that both Chris Paul and Dwight Howard are still hanging out in LA.

Chris Paul and all his clippers teammates and significant others went out on Monday to celebrate CP3’s 28th birthday.


And Dwight Howard was spotted hanging out with Oscar winner Denzel Washington, comedian, Cedric The Entertainer and two of LA’s biggest hoops ambassadors, Dana and David Pump checking out playoff basketball Monday night.

Denzel doesn’t look happy to be there. Maybe he’s still down about the Lakers first round sweep. :shrug:

Granted a lot of players spend their off season in LA, working out, partying and enjoying the Hollywood lifestyle but, we’ll take hope in whatever form it manifests at this point in the game. Funny, my first suggestion for both of the teams involves coaching.
