People Loved How Chris Paul Dragged a Reporter for His Ignorant Question

"I'm on the team. What you want me to say? Nah, it's over!?"

Published April 26th

Imagine just losing a pivotal Game 5, being on the brink of playoff elimination and being asked if your team will make it to a Game 7?

That was Chris Paul's reality last night after his Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Utah Jazz to slip to 2-3 in their playoff series when a reporter asked him, "Will the Clippers be back here [in L.A.] playing a Game 7?"

To say the nine-time NBA All-Star was peeved about the question would be an understatement.

With absolute disgust, CP3 shot back with, "What!?"

And the point guard was just getting warmed up, ethering the reporter for his absurd question.

"What you think?" he continued. "I'm on the team. What you want me to say? Nah, it's over!? That's what you want to hear? Come on, man. You've been doing this long enough. Seriously, right? Everybody in here [in the press conference room] is laughing for a reason."

And many more laughed on Twitter and Instagram, shedding real tears over CP3's severe dragging of this reporter. Here are some of the funniest reactions to Chris Paul's slander.
