Chris Paul asked Byron Scott to stop using Alonzo Gee on him defensively
Scott made that shocking revelation today after practice. He has been calling Gee one of the league's best defenders for a few days and is trying to prove it by using him to defend multiple positions.
Apparently at some point during Monday's Cavs win over the Clippers, Paul jogged by Scott and told him "take him off me" and wanted Kyrie Irving to defend him instead.
"Why you got him guarding me? Let the young fella guard me," Paul told Scott. "I said, 'Young fella has guarded you. He said, 'Well you threw me in the fire, made me guard all those guys.'"
Scott coached Paul, of course, when Paul was just breaking into the league in New Orleans.
"Obviously (Gee) had a little effect on him," Scott said. Paul had 17 points and nine assists for the Clippers.
