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.
