    Other than the contract, the only regret the Rockets should have had regarding Chris Paul is letting D'Antoni cast him as an extra instead of a slightly lesser co-star. The difference in the Rockets in 2017/18 and 18/19 season are more noticeable, while they played iso heavy both years, Chris Paul was much more involved, and the ball just happens to find shooters more often with him. He's not 24 and 10 kind of player anymore, but letting him have 18 and 10, isn't that bad honestly

      Before the video starts: Yes, yes it was, but they got Westbrick because of him so, kinda?

        One bad contract for another bad contract. Houston is even worse now with Westbrick.

        Dantoni is a good coach just never will be great, his subs are bad and minute management is subpar, and he just watches his good players do what they want, then defend them at all cost, they looked uninterested in winning the series as a team!

                    Good as CP3 is, Clippers won that trade hands down. Among others, they got Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, and Montrezl Harrell from Houston.

                      If Harden and CP3 play better off ball, they have a chance. Harden literally just stands still at the three if he doesn't have the ball.

                          Harden is to worried about getting fouls called lets it get to him and he gets flustered look at kawhi you rarely see him say a word to the refs he just puts his head Down plays threw the contact and let's his coach talk to the refs

                            No getting the All-State insurance after watching Chris Paul and James Harden was a mistake. Should had trusted them and got the State-Farm smh 🤦‍♂️

                              That payment was inevitable after trading for him. Why would they have traded and let him go in free agency. They gave way too much for Paul

                                      It was the same thing that happened last year with the same matchup. They just amplified the Spurs' concept and succeeded.

                                    In an Silicon Valley esq scheme the Warriors knew the Rockets could get close if they make the right moves last year so they played with them for 7 games so the Rockets would hand out big contracts to all the wrong guys to lock themselves into a mediocrity team

                                              I hate it when curry pass alway overhead when double teamed. The opponent are aware of it and most of his turnovers comes from that. A bounce pass once in a while would help

                                                  Chris Paul signed for 30 plus million. Golden State lost KD and still crushed the Rockets. That's a dumb question.

                                                    Those teams who won multiple titles, i.e. a dynasty, in the NBA in the past 30 years always moved the ball around. Chicago Bulls, LA Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, and Golden State Warriors. Those teams who do not move the ball well never comes close to building a dynasty.

                                                        Chris Paul should take less and get back those clippers players.

                                                          The Rockets effectively went toe to toe with one of the all-time super teams two straight years. And with a less talented group of players. It's hard to criticize their coaching and GM decisions just because they ran into the Warriors.

They can lose one of their best players and still be at least as good as every other NBA team. The Rockets are the 2nd best team in the league. Nobody argues that. They were assembled without a particularly great draft, old vets, and niche players.

                                                                    To say "their way is proven to not work" is ignorant of the fact that only 1 out of 29 NBA teams have beaten the Warriors in a series at all (and it was before KD) and also ignorant of all the other teams they've beaten in recent years.

                                                                    To the naysayers, I ask this? Where is your team? They've either lost already, or they're on the way to doing so (Blazers)

Now he could be scoring & making plays but does he have the right mentality? We all know he a snake. Stabs you in the back as soon as he gets a chance. I honestly think that CP doesn’t have chemistry with his teammates. He just wants to win... what’s my point here? Idk lol I just hate CP3. But I love how he keeps choking. 😂😂.

Shoots 40 times a night around under 40%, he's not efficient at all and is so predictable. Drive or stepback 3 every time. Cp3 was great numbers wise in game 7...
