Chris Paul: “Options Are Open” On Playing Overseas

by BSO Staff | Posted on Sunday, July 24th, 2011

New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul is adding his name to the list of NBA players who are considering playing overseas.

Paul along with Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose were in the Philippines this weekend to raise money for charity. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Paul said that he is keeping his options open as far as playing overseas if a lockout continues into the NBA season.

Paul also said he might go back to college at Wake Forest to gain some credits toward his degree, the paper reports.

“I wouldn’t say this [trip to the Philippines] could lead to [playing overseas],” Paul said, according to the Times-Picayune, “but those options are open anyway. When I said that [about going back to school], I said I didn’t know. I’m open to all different things.”

Paul has also said he might go back to college at Wake Forest, where he left after his sophomore year, to gain some credits toward his degree, the paper reports.

If I was Chris I would go back to school. Basketball doesn’t last forever and he needs something to fall back on.

So get that education Chris!

David Stern doesn’t approve of this story.
