Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns are facing a major crossroads this offseason.

They're coming off losing in the NBA Finals after being up 2-0 and, even though not many people thought they were for real at first, it's pretty obvious that they have something special going on.

Then again, some rumors claim that Chris Paul would like to take his talents elsewhere given the opportunity, with Magic Johnson going as far as to say that he should be calling LeBron James to join forces with him in the Los Angeles Lakers - that's not tampering, right?

Nonetheless, insider Marc Stein believes that there's just no way the Phoenix Suns agree to trade his expiring contract to a direct division rival:

“If the Suns are losing Chris Paul the last team they want to help is the Los Angeles Lakers," Stein said.
