Yesterday, Chris Paul forced the Clippers to trade him when he told the team he wanted to play with James Harden and the Houston Rockets. Since then it was reported that Paul wanted out because he was frustrated with Doc Rivers giving preferential treatment to his son Austin Rivers.
Well, Austin heard about the rumors and fired off this tweet in response.
These false rumors are comedy…so fictional it’s actually amusing! People will say or do anything to get attention. A lot 🤡🤡 out there

I’m sure we’ll hear more revelations in the next coming days about what led to the departure of Chris Paul, but this is not a good look for a organization that is trying to form a new image now that their superstar is gone.
