That's how I graduated high school. lol

I loved playing sports in P.E. but every month we had a marathon day. I'm not sure how far we ran but it was miles and it lasted the whole class. That was one day I always wished I was sick.

Also we had an obstacle course day. That was awful as well.

I'm looking forward to see Chris Paul working out particularly shooting and ball handling.

Chris Paul hasn't been doing anything. I'm not expecting more than a cameo appearance in the All-Star game.

It's indeed looking like a very brief appearance for Paul tomorrow.

I hope he’s also getting treatment 24/7 on that while in Cleveland. I can understand him playing though. This might be his last all-star game. Not saying he won’t make it the next few years but CP3 is closer to the end than the beginning obviously.

Monty coaching them boys up lol. Still speaks volumes that he chose us over LA and Bron. Idk where we’d be without Mont even if we got CP3.

It takes the luster off All-Star Weekend for me although I plan to watch.

Yeah he’s not a good 3 point shooter. That’s how he’s viewed but it’s not really his game he’s a steak guy who when he gets hot he gets real hot
People called him the next Steph….he’s not. He can make threes when he’s hot but like you said, very streaky. I still don’t know how Cam didn’t get an invite. Is he a big name? No. But to be #2 in the league and not selected is just ridiculous.

That was a bit of sarcasm on my part. I seldom listen to sports radio but I tuned in yesterday I was so desperate for news.
if Chris was out for the year we would know by now, in fact if he was not planning on playing at least a few minutes in the all star game, I am pretty sure he would have dropped out.

its Not something to be worried about

I think Chris Paul will make an appearance in the All-Star game and come back to play sometime this season.

What concerns me is Chris Paul may not come back 100%. He has played injured before.

It was evident he was not himself in the Finals last season losing his handle on the ball numerous times and his shot did not look right either.

Then after the Finals he had off season wrist/hand surgery.

I'm concerned we could see a similar replay this season.

I wanted to post this here as well. Chris Paul is the initial recipient of Kobe & Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award.

It will be presented at the All-Star game.
