Chris Paul Is Already Trying To Recruit LeBron To Houston

  • Golden State Warriors v Houston Rockets – Game Seven

In a postseason defined by uncertainty for the defending champions, Golden State could be without one of its top defenders as the Warriors chase a repeat title - taking on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a fourth straight NBA Finals matchup.

Once the buzzer sounded and the 101-92 Game 7 win over Houston was official, the Warriors could exhale. The 2015 Finals MVP is Golden State's best defender and would be the best option to limit LeBron, but without him Steve Kerr might be forced to rotate Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston and Nick Young, as he did in the Western Conference Finals.

James Harden looked gassed in the Rockets' season-ending Game 6 loss to the Spurs last season. Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta has given Morey his blessing to do what it takes to keep this team together and he'll be more than willing to pay the luxury tax in order to do so.

James, who played all 82 regular season games for the first time in his career, has been balling out of his mind in the playoffs. Traded off Ryan Anderson's contract is a MUST but I don't see how you get rid of it unless multiple assets such as draft picks and some of our players are attached in the deal.

Best of luck to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, and unfortunately, we'll never actually know if things would have changed had Paul played.

Golden State doesn't give an inch.


It was all right there in front of them. The Cavaliers are waiting to see if Kevin Love will be cleared to play after missing Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals with a concussion. I have no doubt that's what Morey wants so we'll just have to watch Morey obsession with beating the Warriors grow even more through the off season and try to figure out a route to improve this team even better than it already is.

This is the big one. "He'll be back 100 percent and we're ready to go".

Perhaps they can get away with that - again - in these NBA Finals.

James has willed his Cavs this far, saying, "I don't know how I can compare it to other seasons because I can only think about this one in the present". Perhaps the Warriors let the Cavs into a series by not establishing themselves in Game 1.

Instead, according to the New York Times, Paul has channeled his energy towards recruiting free agent to-be LeBron James.

For the fourth straight season, the Cavs and Warriors have advanced to the best-of-seven series to decide the National Basketball Association championship. And if they win two - well, then we have a series where anything can happen.
