CP3 on Harden: ‘We’re Going to Help Each Other’

Basketball Insiders

Chris Paul, having heard the questions about how he will fit with James Harden in a backcourt pairing of elite, ball-dominant players, addressed the subject with humor Friday afternoon during his introductory news conference with the Houston Rockets. Asked what he heard from Harden that helped persuade him to opt to join the Rockets, Paul quipped: “It was a basketball in the room, and we were fighting over it.”

“Seriously, we talked about the ultimate goal, and that’s winning [a title],” Paul, a nine-time All-Star, said after the laughter died down. “It’s not about me coming here just to help him. He’s going to help me. We’re going to help each other. We’re going to help this team hopefully get to where we want to be.”
