Chris Paul and his adopted city put on quite a show last night in the 57th annual NBA All-Star Game, even though the Eastern Conference beat his Western Conference team, 134-128, at the New Orleans Arena. Making his first all-star appearance, the New Orleans Hornets point guard had 16 points and 14 assists while entertaining both his home crowd and the nation. "It was totally different than anything I've ever experienced," Paul said. Paul has been the face of the revived Hornets franchise and also a symbol of the comeback effort by the city after Hurricane Katrina.

The Chris Paul fiasco places on center stage exactly what was accomplished during the NBA lockout. Absolutely nothing. All we heard during the lockout - aside from league owners whining about hemorrhaging money - was how the old construct prohibited teams in smaller markets from getting better and turning a profit; that teams in Los Angeles and New York would always hold an advantage over teams in less lucrative locations such as Milwaukee...

NEW YORK - NBA teams went back to work Friday, which for Chris Paul meant going back to New Orleans. And there was disbelief and anger around the league - and a commitment to try again to find him a new home. Commissioner David Stern killed the Hornets' first attempt at moving their all-star point guard, but New Orleans general manager Dell Demps is working to put together a new deal. "Yes. People are still calling," Demps said. "People are still calling, and we're calling people, so we're confident we can get a deal.

They already call him The Mayor. Chris Paul is so polished, there are people who know him well who honestly think he could go back to Winston-Salem after his playing days and be . . . the mayor. "There's no chance," the Wake Forest freshman guard said yesterday, grinning. "I play basketball. That's what I do. I really don't get into politics. " Politicians would love to have his impact. Here's a headline from a North Carolina newspaper last month: "Freshman Brings Basketball Back To Winston-Salem.

In less time than it takes to toast bread, jog a lap or check e-mail, Peja Stojakovic sent the 76ers from hopeful to done-for. Last night, Stojakovic's slew of fourth-quarter three-pointers - five in 2 minutes, 41 seconds - blew the doors off a back-and-forth contest. Minutes later, the New Orleans Hornets walked off their home court with a 101-86 victory. "I've seen that before," Sixers point guard Andre Miller, who finished with 19 points, said of Stojakovic. "It's nothing new to me. Everybody in the arena knows he can shoot.

THE PROPOSED move of Doc Rivers from the Boston Celtics' bench to the Los Angeles Clippers' remained in limbo over the weekend because of the teams' ongoing haggling over prized young guard Eric Bledsoe, according to sources with knowledge of the talks. Sources told ESPN that the Celtics will not consent to allow Rivers out of the final 3 years and $21 million on his contract unless they receive both Bledsoe and Clippers center DeAndre Jordan in a corresponding trade for Boston's Kevin Garnett, along with at least one future first-round pick as compensation for Rivers.

Three Points Isaiah Canaan, who is competing to be the team's starting point guard, said he talks often to Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul about how to be a better leader on the court. Canaan met Paul during college when he attended Paul's camp. He said Paul is a good friend. Head coach Brett Brown said the team has enjoyed their week at Stockton University. He said the gym is "one-stop shopping" as there is room to do almost everything. Jerami Grant - one of the team's best on-ball defenders - will see added playing time when the team plays shooters Nik Stauskas, Isiah Cannan, and Robert Covington together.

THERE WAS the stutter-step dribble that led to a lefthanded floater. Another time it was the one-dribble power move to the left that led to a layup. There also was a quick power move to the right baseline over a smaller defender that went for a dunk and an ensuing free throw. He also ran down Chris Paul from behind and flicked the ball away from him during a dribble, leading to a basket at the other end. Nerlens Noel's progression can't be talked or written about enough. Last night, he was matched up against Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, one of the premier rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA, though offensively challenged.

NEW YORK - Derek Fisher sat in his slightly darkened office at Madison Square Garden and, as usual, reviewed videotape. It was 3 hours before his Knicks welcomed the Clippers to MSG on Wednesday. The video showed the Clippers' usual array of monster dunks and fastbreak thunder, but it also revealed a maestro at work. Fisher, less than a season removed from playing in the NBA, couldn't help but be awed at the deftness with which Chris Paul orchestrated the movements of every player on the court.

IF YOU'VE given up on the Sixers yet still want to root for NBA team, you could do a lot worse than the Los Angeles Clippers. Not because of their lofty record, or the fact that they've already clinched a playoff spot. But because of what they did for Fran McCaffery's son on Monday. McCaffery, of course, is a former Penn player who is now the head coach at Iowa. Two weeks ago, his 14-year-old son Patrick had surgery to remove a malignant tumor on his thyroid. Patrick is a big fan of Clippers star Chris Paul.

NEW ORLEANS - So how does one measure Michael Carter-Williams, the scintillating point guard of the struggling 76ers? He leads NBA rookies in scoring, assists, rebounds, and steals. That has led to some musing that he could be a superstar, mentioned in the same breath as legends Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson. Others have compared him to contemporaries Chris Paul and LeBron James. The 6-foot-6, 185-pound Carter-Williams is a shining light amid the gloom that is this season's Sixers.

What 76ers coach Brett Brown likes most about rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams is his competitiveness. Off the court, Carter-Williams is a quiet young man who is laid back and standoffish. And on the court . . . "The competitive side of him when the lights come on, that has surprised me," Brown said at the beginning of the season. "And there's a talent in him that has surprised me. " Now almost three months into the season, he is the favorite to be the NBA rookie of the year.

CHRIS PAUL'S answer was brief, just like his time on the free agent market. "I'M IN!!!" he wrote yesterday on Twitter. He will be staying with the Clippers, the longtime losers he helped turned into a division champion in just two seasons. Lakers star Dwight Howard will need more time to think. Free agency opened yesterday in the NBA with the focus on the pair of Los Angeles All-Stars, though Paul took himself off the market only hours after shopping season started. Agent Leon Rose confirmed Paul's return, which had been expected after the Clippers signed Doc Rivers as their new coach.

LOS ANGELES - For the first time in his life, Maalik Wayns is playing for a basketball team that isn't rooted in the Philadelphia area. The Roman Catholic and Villanova product signed his second 10-day contract on Tuesday with the Los Angeles Clippers after starting his NBA career this season as an undrafted free agent with the 76ers. Wayns played 21 games for the Sixers, including one start, and averaged 2.7 points. He scored a career-high 10 in a win over the Dallas Mavericks in November and dealt nine assists in a loss at Dallas in December.
