After reportedly being traded to the Houston Rockets, Chris Paul took to Twitter to thank Los Angeles and Clippers nation for a memorable six years in blue and red:

Unbelievable amount of emotions right now – I don’t even know what to say. Lots of love and tears. I’m so blessed and thankful for the ability to play this game, this is the part that no one can prepare you for.

To the Los Angeles community and to CLIPPER NATION I say THANK YOU!!! For the past six years you all have welcomed not only me but my family. We love all of you.

Most importantly, I’m thinking about the kids at LA’s Best and the Brotherhood Crusade. You guys have changed my life. Doesn’t matter where I go to work – we have a lot more to do.

Paul was a five-time All-Star and averaged 18.8 points, 9.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds during his time with the Clippers. He was also an active member in the Los Angeles community, including work with organizations LA’s Best and Brotherhood Crusade.
