    What is the expectation? I have seen them play.
    They are good. Do they have another gear for later?
    I am not sold on that.
    I expect them to be very good .. maybe Top 4
    Of course that is barring injury

    He is getting another max contract.

    And to think we gave up picks to trade him. F Tilman and Harden.

    Definitely not getting another max deal. Small term. High dollar contracts.

    Hell would freeze over before he’d come back, in my opinion. Don’t disagree, though.

    Cp3 has got to be at least top 5 in the mvp discussion.

    When's was the last time PHX made the playoffs? Now in his first season with them they are tied for best record in the league!

    In his first season with HOU, the team won a franchise record 65 games. Cp3 first with OKC led an expected lottery bound team to the playoffs and a game 7 last possession first round loss.

    Cp3 mvp.

    Same, love his competitiveness and IQ. Probably not a fan of our beloved Fertitta's comments on his contract being "the worst he has ever seen in sports", though. Makes you wonder how he has felt about Westbrook and Wall. Ignorance was on full display.

    Wasn't Harden fed up with CP too? Like with every other good player he played in Houston?

    Wasn't the original plan to bring Westbrook in to play with CP3 and Harden? Also remember a report where Morey told Harden the deal wasn't happening and he was okay with it. Tillman is the one that forced it.


    What other good players are you talking about? He's played with exactly 2 good players Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. And even then Chris Paul was terrible his second season in Houston. Dwight also fell off a cliff and became fringe NBA player. Stop taking things out of context. Hardens biggest issue is they didn't pair him with a player his age where they could play and grow together. We kept getting aging all stars. You do know that his entire time in Houston exactly 1 other player made an all star game? And that was only for 1 season..

    Since Houston Chris Paul has gone vegan and it seems to be helping him a ton because this is not the same guy we saw in 2018-2019 when Harden was a one man band. Not something Rockets coulda predicted cuz he sure looked washed up. Although I was never a fan of the trade because CP game will age better than Westbrook's.
