Mess with Chris Paul at your own discretion

Reason #3519873 to love Chris Paul: He will make opposing teams' fans pay for heckling him.

-

It turns out that during last night's game against the Indiana Pacers, CP3 got heckled a bit by a Pacer fan for his (up to that point) quiet performance. Well, as the Pacer fan puts it, Paul was none too happy about it.

-

The P’s had a solid lead and CP wasn’t showing up much directly on offense, missing several jumpers.  He came to check in at around 3:36, and I was in complete Pacers mode. Without thinking, I murmured, “CP ain’t shit.” He quickly turned around and said, “What?” High off the fact that he even acknowledged me, I said, “Yeah, you’re lucky T.J.’s (Ford) not playing.” He replied, “Yeah, I prayed for that last night,” and rolled his eyes and laughed. I was in complete disarray, and said to the man that I had so passionately spoken in MVP support for last year: “You shouldn’t have been mentioned for MVP last year, Kobe is way better than you.” He laughed and walked off. My friend gave me the “what have you done” look.

-

Well, the rest is history. Paul scored 11 minutes in the final three-plus minutes of last night's game and had that beautiful dish to David West for the game-winner. Not only that, but the Paul made sure the Pacer fan knew he was the cause of his offensive outburst.

-

CP went over, took a photo with someone, then walked in my direction. I stood up. He stopped directly in front of the scorers table and, pointing a solid finger, and said in LeBron fashion, “It’s your fault. It’s your fault.” My legs began to shake as my star crush walked away.

-

Just goes to show that if you mess with Chris Paul, he will rip your heart out and show it to you as it stops beating (metaphorically speaking).
