Welcome, everybody, to Chris Paul Blog Day! Stay tuned all day (and night probably) to read great insights from some of the best bloggers on the web. I’ll be linking, and providing a small summary of what each article is about. If you didn’t sign up before, feel free to link any work you may have done in the comments. I’ll surely give it a read and link to it. Still not sure what’s going on? Check the announcement page. Many congratulations to Kobe Bryant for his first MVP, but this is Chris Paul Blog Day!
Sports Attitude kicks off the festivities with the first Chris Paul post of CP3 day, not only talking about Chris’ accomplishments, but also offering constructive criticism of how the MVP is voted on.
With Malice takes advantage of the time difference from here to Japan to get in the first of what will be three posts. Behold Radioactive Chris Paul!
Ironically enough, Kobe will earn his first MVP later on during CP Day. TWolves Blog expounds on why this shouldn’t be the case.
With Malice strikes again, this time via a guest blogger from ‘Five Tool Tool’. He explores how CP’s different from other short guards of our generation.
Hoops Addict put up a great piece last month on CP and the MVP race. Today, they talk about his desire to go beyond individual accomplishments.
Finishing up a terrific trio of posts, With Malice says Paul’s season is merely the tip of the iceberg. Chris Paul Blog Day might just be getting underway here, but they’ve already celebrated the hell out of it in Japan.
What makes a point guard truly great? Khandor’s Sports Blog has your answer(s).
“It’s hard to realize, on a game by game basis, when you’re used to seeing it, that what you’re watching is the future unfolding,” says Hornets Hype. I couldn’t put it better than that.
You know how everyone keeps calling CP3 the second coming of Isiah? Upside and Motor convincingly argues that not only do they have the wrong guard pegged, they’re looking at the wrong sport altogether. Paul’s most parallel star doesn’t even play basketball.
Gaines Family Blog makes, uhh, a more eccentric comparison…
He might be 6’0″ on a good day and the smallest player on the court, but Chris Paul will not back down even if you’re Superman. Hornets247 attests to that.
This one isn’t an “official” CP Blog Day article, but it’s a piece about him nonetheless. Don’t let the face fool you, #3 is one guy you don’t want to mess with.
It’s always great to see fans acknowledge opposing players around the league. That’s why this post by 48 Minutes of Hell is so refreshing- it comes from a Spurs’ fan. Much kudos to him, and good luck to San Antonio as the series movies forward.
This was published yesterday at the FanHouse, hat-tip to Hornets Hype for the link: Chris Paul could one day be the greatest of all time.
Huge news: Tyson Chandler contributes to Chris Paul Blog Day! Today is the big man’s daughter’s birthday, so happy birthday to her as well. Check it out! In case you can’t tell, I’m really pumped! Yeah! Wooo! Thanks for your contribution, Tyson.
Sportsology 101 chimes in and looks back at a post they did a few weeks back.
So far (other than the Tyson post) we’ve seen only the on court persona of CP3. Hornets.com rectifies the problem; Jim Eichenhofer talks about Paul as a teammate and his experience working for the Hornets.
So far we’ve had a T’Wolves blog, and a Spurs blog contribute; now here’s the Suns blog ‘Bright Side of the Sun’ with some photoshop wizardry.
The Sports Beat upgrades the day from “CP Blog Day” to ChrisPaulaThon’08. Honestly, I kinda like it.
First, Tyson Chandler, then Hornets.com, now ESPN.com. Ted Bauer contributes to CP3 Day by producing a torrent of video links. Thanks Ted!
Another ESPN contributor, Alejandro de los Rios, details how he went from hating CP to getting to know him on a personal level. Definitely a great read on Blog of New Orleans.
Hardwood Paroxysm does a Photoshop accompanied by a (pretty funny) article. Add “Warrior Paul” to the list of Photoshops for the day, we’ve already had “Radioactive Paul” and “Phoenix Paul.”

The Dream Shake Rockets Blog reflects on a tough season and thanks Chris Paul for keeping the playoffs watchable.
A Brazil based blog normally in Portuguese takes the effort to wish CP3 a Happy Birthday (in English). Feliz aniversário!
