The Clippers point guard was named an All-Star starter and loves his new town despite not having had time to mingle with celebrities.
How has the transition been to life as a Clipper?
CHRIS PAUL: Things couldn't have gone smoother. This has been such a great situation. We're like a college team.
CP: When you're in college, you spend so much time together. When you come to the NBA, it's different because after practice everyone goes their separate ways. Here, we're always doing things together.
How hard was the week when the NBA ruled against the trade that would have sent you to the Lakers before you ended up going to the Clippers?
CP: Emotionally, it was a roller coaster. Now I'm so much more comfortable. The organization has been great since Day One. L.A. has been great.
Do celebrities come up to you at the Grove and other restaurants?
