The Phoenix Suns may be tracking high fives this season, but everyone knows that true camaraderie is measured in headbutts. Chris Paul has a reputation for being an unrelenting competitor and apparently that extraordinary intensity isn’t just reserved for the opposition. In last night’s drubbing of the Brooklyn Nets, CP got a bit carried away in what was, in my estimation, intended only as a love-tap for his pal DeAndre Jordan.

I’m no lip-reader, but DeAndre didn’t seem super pleased. While this isn’t going to do anything to quell the rumors that DJ can’t stand playing with CP3, maybe Chris was just trying to make sure his buddy stayed awake in a game that the Clippers had in the bag from the opening tip.
