Chris Paul is looking to move

New, comment

Before you panic, this does not necessarily mean that the Clippers' Point God is looking to leave Los Angeles.

Chris Paul, according the the LA Times, is selling his Bel-Air home:

Although this does not necessarily mean that Paul is looking to leave Los Angeles, as Leitereg argues above, it does mean something. What that “something” could mean, however, is up in the air.

Paranoid fans may see this as proof that Paul is thinking ahead, as well as mobile enough and willing to jump properties with relative ease.

On the other hand, optimistic fans might believe this move is Paul consolidating his investments and setting his roots deeper in Los Angeles now that he has picked where he would like to live long-term.

Either way, I must admit that I am somewhat ashamed by being interested in this story. It further confirms that sports culture is much too embedded in the personal lives of athletes. Is it our right to know these things about a player’s personal life? And if it is indeed our right, does that make it any less creepy?

Certainly there is some nobility in being so dedicated to a team that one takes care for the personal life of a player, but knowing about when they buy or sell homes seems a little too far.
