Who would’ve ever thought Chris Paul and James Harden would be teammates in Houston? Well, it’s happening.


Last night, According to Marc Stein of ESPN, The Rockets had emerged as the leader to sign Chris Paul. In a time where everyone is advocating their team to recruit stars, James Harden is on the same boat.

Houston’s title window is more open than most might think, and signing Paul can help their chances. Paul will give Houston the best opportunity to take down the almighty Warriors.

Even though Paul suffered a minor injury this year, he’s still effective on the court. Not only is he great in the regular season, but he’s incredible in the playoffs. After the performance James Harden put on in Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs, he will definitely need Paul’s help.

Paul averaged 18.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 9.2 assists. Paul is one of the best pass-first point guards in the league. However, Harden served as the point guard last season and had an eye-catching season.

Having the opportunity to put Harden and Paul at the one and two positions will be effective throughout the game. Opponents will be forced to adjust against this star-studded frontcourt.

Pairing Paul and Harden will definitely bring out incredible potential for both of them. For example, when Kevin Durant was playing with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Russell Westbrook didn’t mesh well with KD, nor brought out their maximum level of play. On the other hand, Stephen Curry and KD played like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen throughout the playoffs. Basically, CP3 and Harden can work together perfectly.

Paul has never reached a Conference Finals, whereas Harden has reached three in his career, including one since joining the Rockets. Individually, they will never get past the Warriors, but together, you never know.

Stay tuned for more updates.
