While talking about the fallout with the Rockets, Paul mentioned his conversation with the team’s general manager, Daryl Morey who told him,
“We ain’t gonna trade you to the Oklahoma”
Paul also mentions that Morey asked him if he wanted to go to OKC, to which he replied, “No, not at this point in my career”
Paul was caught off guard by the offseason trade that sent him from the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder. In an interview with The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears, Paul said Rockets general manager Daryl Morey gave him assurances the deal wouldn’t happen.
Paul and the Banana Boat Crew
Paul was asked about a very sought after topic: The Banana Boat Crew
The Banana Boat team first formed after a photo surfaced of James, Wade, Paul, and Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union on vacation in 2015. Anthony, while not featured in the picture, was on vacation with them at the time, and is considered the ‘fourth member’ of the Banana Boat Team. The four NBA superstars have been friends since they were children, and have consistently gone on vacation together. They also played together on the 2008 Olympic Gold Medal team.
Paul said, ” I would love that opportunity, it would be fun, it would be special”
“Me, Bryan and D, almost had a chance one time, we didn’t know whose gonna wear no.3”
Paul refused to reveal any further details about the above.
