The Chris Paul Rockets Conspiracy

Chris Ryan is thinking Chris Paul could go to the Rockets instead of the Spurs. He does the homework and breaks down why this could be a thing. I don’t believe it, but I appreciate the investigating. I still think Spurs. No matter where he goes, this quote is what I’ve been saying about him leaving the Clippers and that extra money on the table:

Being Chris Paul is all the leverage Chris Paul needs, right? Maybe a shot at a ring is worth $50 million to him.

Chris Ryan ultimately agrees with me:

San Antonio makes the most sense for Paul. He becomes an immediate and huge upgrade at point guard, plays for a team that takes winning basketball games as seriously as he does, and plays for a coach who knows how to navigate a season in order to peak in the playoffs.

I’m Nash. I create things.
