Paul chuckles about receiving ‘CP3′ chants from once-rival Dub Nation originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
Definitely not Paul.
“Yeah, it was [surreal],” Paul told reporters. “Dario looked at me and started laughing, and I couldn’t help but laugh. That was a first, yeah.”
However, Paul’s now on what his new teammates would call the right side of things and is making “CP3” a household name across the Bay Area, beginning with Chase Center.
In Paul’s regular-season Warriors debut, the 12-time NBA All-Star posted 14 points, nine assists, six rebounds and two steals in Golden State’s four-point loss.
While Kevin Durant generated buzz for playing in front of Warriors fans for the first time since leaving Golden State in 2019 free agency, Paul also played his former team for the first time since being traded twice during the past offseason.
Although Paul and Golden State wanted to come out victorious to begin the season, the pairing can continue on knowing the fans are behind this year’s most prominent acquisition and former enemy.
After all, it is remarkable that Paul is an ally for the Warriors while sharing the floor with Durant, considering the intense Warriors-Rockets duels of old.
