Not only was Beverly the Rockets best defender, Patrick was also the heart of the franchise! Based on ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus, Chris Paul was NBA’s second-most productive player on a per-minute basis last season, behind LeBron James. Speculation by those "in the know" say George Paul will sign with the Rockets once Free Agency starts on July 1st. If this happens, look out because Paul George is one of the best shooters in the league.
Harden greatly increased his number of assist this season which was part of the reason many considered him MVP. Alas, James still resorted to dribbling the clock out and firing it up at the buzzer......if Paul can help prevent that, I'm all for it!
