    Chris Paul is so Imaginative with the ball its crazy. I think the defender got him next thing you know he passes to a open man in the corner for a 3. Really glad he is a Rocket.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t want Ariza back? Feel like his best days are behind him. Great for chemistry but he is just simply not a starting SF on the team we are wanting to beat the Warriors with.

    Clint Capela, Trevor Ariza, Luc Mbah Moute, Gerald Green need to resign them. Capela deserves a longer Contract because of his age - 24 years old.

    It's great news! There's always been a huge amount of risk involved with these big multiple year contracts, Anderson being a prime example, but I'm more than willing to take the chance that Chris will be effective through the length of his deal. He has to stay healthy during the playoffs, and hopefully for most of the season, which is the big unknown. Look how well Eric Gordon played this past season. Talk about injury histories! Maybe CP3 is due for an uninterrupted playoff run. Gordon managed it. Why not Chris Paul? We need to have some faith in our staff to keep him in tip-top shape

    Glad CP3 is running it back. He elevated us to another level.
    Starting a prayer chain now for God to hold his body together for at least one
    solid calendar year.

    He totally deserves his contract, no doubt. But I can’t help but think that somewhere Les Alexander is smiling and glad that he’s not going to be on the hook for the luxury tax that surely awaits us for the next few seasons. He cashed out at the right time.

    Here's to hoping he'll play at least 44 games for us that season

    CP3 is injury prone. He might only plays 55 games each season. 40 million? I feel it will turn into bad contract.

    I want to like this contract but, man, that's a lot of money for someone his age. Father time is unbeaten.
