    look what we gave up to get him. I wonder if we had those players and picks rather than CP, where would we be .

    Looking dumber by the second. He has no second gear anymore and his defense was awful. How many wide open threes did he give up?

    Looks really pedantic out there and turnover prone. Austin Rivers ran the second unit better

    His albatross contract will be the downfall of the rest of Harden's prime years & kill any shot of the team maximizing the roster smh..I'm mad watching all these teams get better while we have to trade our youngest asset just to save face.. Chris Paul bamboozled the Rockets organization & has hindered our progression I really dislike dude now he disappears.. is injury prone is old & causes lockeroom issues

    Chris was great for 1 year. At this point I'd gladly take Beverley, Lou, and Montrezl back. Dont know if the following is actually possible salary wise but I'd take this team in a heartbeat.

    Bev/Lou/Rivers
    Harden/Gordon/Green
    Tucker/House
    FA stretch 4/Harrell
    Capela/FA backup 5

    His contract ruins everything.

    I’m so disappointed.

    Chris Paul straight swindled the Rockets. We wouldn't even be able to trade his contract for a bag of Doritos at this point.

    True. Mark my words, my next year Morey will be trying to unload the contract to save face again. And to unload it he’ll have to give up assets and draft picks to do it, the same way he did with Ryan Anderson’s contract.

    Which we wouldn't, even without Chris Paul's contract.

    you can't blame cp3. Who gave him that money? The same with Ryno.

    Bev was coming off the books this offseason. Also we would have actually trade able pieces. No body wants CP3 garbage contract.

    The Ryno deal is the problem. Go back and and rerun the last two years in your mind and imagine another $20M starter playing and the 2 titles we are sitting on right now. Regardless of how overpaid CP3 is you wouldn’t mention it at all. No one would. Morey’s obsession with stretch 4s and winning on trades led to Ryno and killed this team.

    We had that, it was a 50+ win team that lost to the spurs. Now getting Lou Williams and Harrell on that contact re-up was the real steal fit the clippers.
