With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic keeping professional sports leagues in a holding pattern, Chris Paul has been doing some Instagram Live sessions to fill the considerable hole in his schedule.
The Thunder point guard faced a few questions about the most viral moments of his career during a recent chat with his followers. He was asked about his fake laugh aimed at Warriors coach Steve Kerr during a 2018 regular season game back when Paul formed a dynamic duo with Rockets star James Harden. Kerr appeared to be joking around with Paul, who smiled and pointed at Kerr before immediately turning into a stone wall.
"Why did I fake laugh at Steve Kerr?" Paul said. "'Cause wasn't s— funny."
Well, OK then. Moving on ...
Paul also spoke with two-time MVP Stephen Curry about the infamous crossover that dropped Paul to the ground when he was a member of the Clippers. On March 31, 2015, Curry's baseline dribble combination elicited "oohs" and "aahs" from the Staples Center crowd and presented Twitter with infinite meme fuel.
"Listen, we know the anniversary just passed," Paul said. "They talking about when you went behind the back and all that. Listen, man, listen, listen. He got me. He got me."
Curry took the high road, telling Paul that getting crossed up is just part of playing basketball at the highest level.
"Like, you dropped me at least three times," Curry said. "I got you that one time in LA. Brandon Jennings got me my rookie year. Like, you can never, ever, ever live them down, and they're just gonna pop up."
Curry and Paul can shrug off their less flattering moments now. It doesn't look like Paul will be extending an IG Live invitation to Kerr anytime soon, though.
