  1. Sorry but cp3 isn't much better than Beverly. Bad trade for Houston. Cp3 has proven he can't win in the playoffs. Furthermore if Cp3 is a winner Why wouldn't he just wait and sign with Houston as a free agent. Then they could trade those players going to the clippers. The team would be much deeper. Plus Chris Paul is 32.

  2. I think for this team Paul milsap would be a perfect fit for Houston because behind Kevin love he's the best three point shooting power forward which blends in beautifully with D'Antoni's style of play which emphasizes the three ball and helps guys like ariza shoot the three ball even more effectively than they would anywhere else

  3. Paul has no heart. Watch how many times he makes that 'im about to cry' face when they step to the Warriors. As a GS fan, San Antonio is the only team worth fearing. And Cavs ain't sh!t without Refs help.

  4. Lol so many dumb posters here why can't Harden and Cp3 share the ball when GSW has 4 (5with Iggy) guys who want the ball? Both Harden and Cp3 are elite 3 pt shooters why can't they play off each other like KD and Curry? Losing Beverly hurts a lot but c'mon you upgrade from Bev to Chris Paul! Paul is also a really good defender just like Bev so you don't lose anything. Btw Spurs suck ass Kawhi gets injured even if he has limited mins and rest days while LMA is a diva no wonder Cp3 didn't want to go there.

    Are the Rox as good as GSW? Of course not, they are still 2 stars short. But its a good start and Cp3 wanted a trade to Houston because it gives the team more flexibility than just signing in FA. It also sends a signal to FAs that Houston wants to compete so they can all think if they want to join the Rox before free agency starts.

  5. this is what bothers me…. nba players whine cause they want championships, so he wants out of LA but instead of leaving LA and sign directly to Houston, he re-signs with LA with a negotiated trade to Houston.

  6. Don't know who this person is and won't care one bit until two years after his contract ends and he's broke doing home invasions in my neighborhood to support his drug habit

  7. Well he wanted to play on the same team as his homie. James and Chris have been talking about this move. This also allows CP3 to be himself on the court, and James can go back to the shooter, and driver he is off the ball. And even still have him push the point when Cp3 is on the bench.

  8. Why did CP do that?

    Because though money is important, winning is more to him. Going to Houston 1 year then let the suitors build a superteam and pursue you. Then pick the team that he wants.
