Quotes of the Week 

"THANK YOU NEW ORLEANS for 6 of the BEST years of my life ... to the organization, my teammates, coaches, and the fans you will always be my family and have a special place in my heart!!!" — Now-former New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul on his Twitter account Dec. 15. It was announced the previous night, following CP3's NBA-blocked trade agreement, that Paul would start the season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

"Yeah! It's going to be Lob City!" — Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, after teammate DeAndre Jordan received the news on the phone ("No way!") that Chris Paul would join the team after a trade deal giving up Clippers Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu and an unprotected No. 1 draft pick. A beaming Griffin also shoulder bumped Jordan, and T-shirts bearing "Lob City" in place of the Clippers logo already are making the rounds.

"We did the best we can to express our displeasure." — A "privately fuming" Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak to the Los Angeles Times following Paul's trade announcement. The NBA vetoed a three-tiered trade agreement six days earlier that would have swapped Paul for the Lakers' Lamar Odom and sent Lakers' Pau Gasol to the Houston Rockets.
