After the Lakers three-way trade fell apart last week, Chris Paul had a simple and sweet tweet: "WoW," is all he had to say. Because it said it all.

And Wednesday night, after Eric Gordon was the prize in the package that finally convinced the league to push a big red button the CP3 deal, Gordon had pretty much the same reaction.




Here's the best part about it though: Three hours prior to that, here's what Gordon tweeted:



Funny story: Gordon actually found out about the deal while on a bus with Clipper season-ticket holders for some kind of fan tour thing. That's the "Clipper event" he tweeted about. And just a few hours later, he found out that he was in enemy territory.

The way players find out about trades has always been a bit fascinating, especially the how quickly news and information moves across Twitter and everything else. For Eric Gordon, his next stop on that bus was actually New Orleans.

Eric Gordon reacts to Chris Paul trade: 'Wow'

I agree that the Clippers got clipped on this deal. I watched Gordon play in college and thought he was an amazing talent and picked him from day one on a fantasy team just for his ability to score. Being a Kentucky guy, I am prejudice but I think Bledsoe and the group of point guards can make up for not getting Chris Paul and then see how they fair in next years draft. Just look at "all" the good players they lost and potentially could lose. Just imagine if that draft choice ends up being Anthony Davis from Kentucky or one of the superstar draft pick next year.

time: add to this that Paul is only commiting to a shortened season plus next year. The Clips could be in NO's situation come next December.

Eric Gordon reacts to Chris Paul trade: 'Wow'

I am a Clipper fan and went to 9 games last year.   This is a BAD deal for the Clippers and I will tell you why.
First, Eric Gordon is just as valuable as Chris Paul.  It was Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin that were the one-two punch last year.
Now, the Clippers just gave up Eric, Kaman AND a top round draft pick for next year to get Chris Paul.  Are you kidding?  This is so stupid. 
NO WAY is Chris Paul worth that.  I feel sorry for Eric Gordon. He was a fan favorite and very clutch and I believe the Clippers would be a better team if they kept Eric and Kaman (a good backup center).  Then, add in maybe the #1 pick from 2012 draft and see if you still like this trade!  Come on, will some real clipper fans respond!
