Paul thanked the city of New Orleans for his time spent with the Hornets and vowed to continue his work in the community along with his young song. He also addressed the city of LA and what he plans to do as a Clipper:

"I'm so excited to be here in LA with this unbelievable franchise. There is so much history behind it and everyone knows Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, who just signed his deal." CP3 also expressed his excitement to work alongside Chauncey Billups and to learn from head coach Vinny Del Nego.
