OK Hornets fans, the season might be over, but that doesn't mean you can't all have a good time. At least, CP3 wants y'all can still have a good time. Or so I can imagine is the reasoning behind Chris Paul hosting a "Teal and White" party at Club 360 in Downtown this Sunday night in which Paul and other Hornets players are set to attend, the Free Agents Brass Band will perform and Chris Paul will be presented with a Lionel Milton painting and the "New Orleans MVP Award." Now far be it from me to question an athlete that throws a party in which he is presented with a painting of himself and an MVP award, but I guess that will all depend on how it's all set to go down and whether I land credentials for this thing and get to see it myself (fingers crossed).
All the details, in full press release form, are after the jump:
