Paul on Rose: His explosiveness is unreal

New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul scored 33 points to go along with 14 assists and seven rebounds in a Game 1 upset of the Los Angeles Lakers, but Paul sounds more like a fan than a superstar when he talks about the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose.

"His explosiveness is unreal," Paul said Monday on "The Scott Van Pelt Show" on ESPN 1000. "I tell kids in my camp all summer that I wish I could get into the lane and take off on people and dunk. Because when you have that ability to dunk, nobody jumps to try to block your shot.

"What he's doing right now is unbelievable, and he's really leading that team."
