Chris Paul said his meeting with Hornets officials "went well".

"I expressed my desire to win and I like what said about the direction that they want to take the team." Paul said in a statement from the team.

This isn't exactly the trade demand insiders expected.  But there's no telling what happens behind closed doors.  CP3's new stance should preserve his pristine image as the savior of the NBA in New Orleans. The meeting results also improved the Hornets' leverage if they do decide to shop him around.

New general manager Dell Demps, new coach Monty Williams and team president Hugh Weber represented the Hornets at the meeting which lasted about 90 minutes in a New Orleans hotel.  Paul's new agent, Leon Rose. accompanied him.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack.
