Thunder's Chris Paul on NBA's return, 'We workin' on it'
Chris Paul appeared on The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah on Wednesday.
The Thunder guard talked about a wide variety of topics, but of course, the return of the NBA was top of mind.
"There's conversations happening every day -- every day -- just trying to figure out what's the safest way," said Paul, who is also the president of the players' association. "We want to play. I think everybody wants us to play."
Paul even admitted that as a fan, he needs the NBA back.
"I watched everything I can possibly watch with my kids," he said. "It's time to start watching some sports.
"We workin' on it."
Paul, who said he is training as well as helping his kids with school work and taking Spanish twice a week, is also working on a documentary about the impact of the coronavirus shutdown around the sports world. He is partnering with producer Brian Grazer and director Antoine Fuqua on "The Day That Sports Stood Still," which will feature athletes and fans sharing their stories.
Paul is a main character in another documentary, the recently released "Blackballed" that dives into the Donald Sterling controversy that ultimately led to the Los Angeles Clippers owner's lifetime ban from the NBA. Paul was with the Clippers when a recording of Sterling making racist remarks surfaced during the 2014 NBA Playoffs.
