Photo essay: Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan's uneasy relationship
On Friday, DeAndre Jordan announced he would be leaving the Clippers to join the Mavericks next season, and on Monday, ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz reported the decision was influenced by Jordan's desire to get away from Chris Paul.
The report says Jordan felt Paul was "constantly barking," his leadership style was "petty" and the big man was annoyed that the point guard would frequently do thing like seek high-fives form everyone on the court but him.
This may initially seem like surprising news, but a look through the photo archives shows that the two have long had a rocky relationship.
Other times it took on a decidedly angrier tone.
Even if they did have their happy moments.
In Paul's defense he was not the only one on the team who yelled at Jordan.
At the end of the day, Jordan decided to say goodbye to the All-Star point guard and start fresh with Dallas.
