Chris Paul will miss Sunday's game with a knee injury but said he wouldn't have missed this All-Star Weekend for anything.
"I definitely wanted to be a part of it," he said. "I'm just glad the injury isn't worse than it could've been."
Paul said he was rehabbing in New Orleans when the Saints won the Super Bowl and it was great to be part of a city that's buzzing.
"it'll probably be that way for the next eight months."
