    I'm guessing because of the 1994 and 1995 Rockets championship teams

    He looks like he will enjoy the Houston steakhouses and buffets. Built for it

    All he said was, he saw everyone was going to the West and likes to compete and didn't want to run away from the competition but instead run towards it. He also mentioned that CP3 calling him along with Harden telling him they wanted him in Houston only made things better.

    The way you defend & compete, now a long list of guys in the West you'll be counted on to defend. Is that what Mike D'Antoni sold to you - defense & give us some corner threes?

    For sure. Even before D'Antoni, that's what I sold myself on. Everyone going to the West, I don't want to run from it. I wanted to go back to it. When they got Chris, we grew up together (knew him since age 9). We've been friends for years. He called me & then James called me. They wanted me here. Talked to coach. The situation is perfect. You look at the match ups in the West, it's gonna be a dog fight all year. I love that. If you know me, that's what I want, that's what I love. When you look at it with our team, a team that's not really a defensive team in the past but I feel like in winning situations, I can be out there with Trevor with different match ups. Sometimes they even put James on forwards depending on match ups. If you watched late in the playoffs, GS just starts switching everything. When teams do that, it takes you out of your offense.

    Would've been great to be able to unleash PJ and Pat together :(

    If Pat was still here PJ would probably still be a Raptor since Chris Paul is the main reason he signed here

    I really like what he says about wanting to come back to the West where all the competitors are vs "running from it" and staying in the East ... like the Dwerts and Lins of the world do.

    Top players are all running to the West now. I don't believe it has anything to do with Lebron because Cavs are not as formidable as the Wild West.
