Chris Paul of the Oklahoma City Thunder talked about the NBA’s social justice initiatives and addressed trade rumors in an interview with Robin Lundberg regarding his next steps after the end to this season. The Thunder exited the bubble in the first round following a series with the Houston Rockets that went to Game 7.

“I’m 35 and I just finished my 15th year. Any team that I’m on I think that we’re competing for a championship,” Paul said, when asked by Sports Illustrated’s Robin Lundberg about his future and what he brings to a team. “And that’s the way we felt this year with OKC. We had a very, very special team and that’s why I think I was hurt and just so mad when we lost.”

Paul remains at the center of the NBA’s work on social justice as president of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA).
