Chris Paul called Kevin Garnett to convince him to join the Clippers


Chris Paul wasn’t opposed to Celtics Kevin Garnett joining the Clippers at the trade deadline. Chris did what most superstar players do, call up the potential player to entice him. This time though, it didn’t work.

According to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald, Paul reached out to Garnett prior to the trade deadline and made him a sweet offer: if KG wanted to join the Clippers, CP3 would make that happen. Garnett, who once said he “will retire a Celtic and be buried in green,” declined Paul’s offer.

I’m glad KG declined. I think the Clippers chemistry might have been messed up. The Clippers did beat the Spurs twice this season before the beat down they suffered Thursday.
