It’s been a decade to the trade of Chris Paul. When back on December 8, 2011, New Orleans Hornets now being New Orleans Pelicans set a three-team trade to send Paul to the Lakers. Arousing a massive excitement to the LA fans at the time Chris was at the peak of his career.

Earlier to the 2010-11 season in the game 1, playoffs, against the LA Lakers Chris dropped 33 points, 14 assists and 4 steals. Following to the game 4 Chris again dropped 27 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists. In response to Paul’s plays, Lakers writer Dave McMenamin quoted that Paul was having a “historically great series”. This write-up made a lot of buzz throughout the season giving Paul the stardom he was chasing.

But everything just didn’t go with the same pace, when the table, who owned the Hornets at that time, dismissed the trade deal for Paul. The reason brought by the franchise was its commissioner David Stern, who advised, that New Orleans would better off if they keep Paul.

Though the circumstances finally on December 12, the Hornets agreed to the trade sending Chris Paul to the tropically similar but different franchise Los Angeles Clippers. But yet again the deal broke, after the NBA asked for additional demands on the original terms. But later after two days, the deal was completed and Paul was sent to the Los Angeles Clippers.
