Chris Paul goes nutso with 31 points, 11 assists and 9 steals in a Hornets win and spoils Jason Kidd's debut with the Mavericks.
Props to the folks in the upper-deck of the Arena, you got a shout-out in the national press for your efforts.
Meanwhile, Paul's dazzling performance on both ends of the floor had the enraptured crowd on its feet, raining down chants of "M-V-P!" for their own All-Star point guard while a banner offering similar sentiments flapped from the upper deck. - AP via ESPN.com
UPDATE!!! Hornets Trade Bobby Jackson for Bonzi Wells and Mike James
