Playoff-bound New Orleans set a franchise record for wins with its 55th on April 9.
Dan Patrick: What's more important to winning an NBA title: a good big man or a good point guard?
Chris Paul: Ah, a combination of both....
DP: No, no, no, no!
CP: ... listen, listen, listen, listen. It's a combination of both, but I think everything begins and ends with the point guard. The offense and the defense starts with you every night.
DP: In New Orleans you guys play that "Whoo!" thing from Ric Flair every time you score. What's up with that?
CP: I didn't really pay attention to it until this year, but I guess they've been doing it since my rookie year. I never knew that it was Ric Flair until this year—you know, he actually came out to the game the other night.
DP: Did you even know who Ric Flair was?
CP: Yeah. I used to watch wrestling all the time, and his daughter was thinking about going to Wake Forest.
