Warriors nearly dealt stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for CP3 in 2011

The Score

The Golden State Warriors dynasty likely wouldn't have come into existence had a proposed blockbuster trade gone through.

Golden State nearly acquired All-Star point guard Chris Paul from the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) in exchange for Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in 2011, according to The Athletic's Ethan Strauss.

"(Warriors GM Bob) Myers made the offer and Hornets GM Dell Demps was receptive," Strauss writes in his book, "The Victory Machine," as transcribed by Dan Feldman of NBC Sports.
