Chris Paul was introduced to the Houston media and made the rounds in his new home on Friday, and he stuck to the script:
He’s there because it’s his best chance to win.
Which is probably true (San Antonio might have made the same pitch). CP3 is one of the best point guards of a generation, still the best floor general in the game, and he’s incredibly competitive. He wanted to pair with James Harden to have a shot at Golden State. There are still a lot of questions about how those two will mesh, and even if that goes will it likely will take more than those two stars to have a shot at the Warriors. But they could be the second best team in the NBA.
Above are some highlights from Paul’s introductory press conference.
