First, there isn’t a better name in sports than:

World Wide Wes

Just recently, the casual fan has started to hear about Wes, but those in the media have known for years the type of sway that Wes has with players, GMs, and owners in the league.

Since Wes has aligned himself with Team LeBron his exposure has been increased to the point that mainstream media is now quoting him.  Many people believe that Wes will be the one person that LeBron listens to above all others.

So I definitely wouldn’t dismiss anything WWW says … even if it seems a little far-fetched, like this story about how he is trying to convince teams that trading for Chris Paul could help them land LeBron.  Yahoo Sports with the details:

Powerbroker William Wesley has been working multiple angles to NBA front offices about possible trades and signings. Here’s his latest: World Wide Wes has been pitching teams with salary-cap space that trading for New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul will dramatically increase their chances of signing LeBron James, multiple sources told Yahoo! Sports.

James is close friends with Paul, and the Cavs star even flew to Winston-Salem, N.C., shortly after Cleveland’s Eastern Conference semifinals loss to the Boston Celtics to attend a birthday party for Paul’s daughter. James was joined by his business manager, Maverick Carter, who has been trying to pilfer Paul from Octagon, which represents Paul. James’ marketing company, LRMR, has wanted Paul to invest in the business and become some kind of partner, sources said.

Why would World Wide Wes want to help broker a deal for Paul? Here are two reasons: First, James loves the prospect of playing with one of the best point guards in the NBA. Secondly, it would show Paul how Wesley could make things happen for him, and perhaps get him to leave Octagon for Wesley and Leon Rose at CAA.

It has been a tough couple of years for Chris Paul, who went from the consensus best point guard in the league to people arguing if he is even in the top 5.  Injuries and a bad team will do that for your reputation.

Even though we haven’t heard much from Paul, it wouldn’t be a shock if he wanted to get out of New Orleans; it would be a shock if they did trade him because he is pretty much all they have.

With that being said, anytime WWW is involved, never say never.

The Summer of LeBron continues.

    We not getting rid of CP3 just yet. Maybe next year cause he has 2 years left on his contract. With our new billionaire owner (Mark Cuban mold), I highly doubt he will entertain the thought of trading him. CP3 loves N.O. & Chouest loves the Hornets.

    Not happening.

    Im also just reading about how the Nets are trying to broker a trade for CP3.

    They were told to KICK ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
