Chris Paul says re-signing with Rockets ‘wasn’t too much to think about’
As one of the top floor general’s in NBA history, Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul has had to make tough decisions his entire career.
According to Rockets reporter Ben DuBose, Paul’s latest decision to re-sign with Houston was an easy one.
“Did you watch last year? … The fun we had last year, it wasn’t too much to think about.”

Despite the success Houston enjoyed in Paul’s first season, the injury in the Western Conference Finals left a bad taste in their mouth.
Paul and the Rockets agreed to a four-year maximum contract worth $160 million, locking himself in with Houston for the long-haul.
The Rockets had an NBA-high 65 wins last season, getting just one game away from the NBA Finals. They were up 3-2 in the Western Conference Finals, but had to play Games 6 and 7 without Paul.
The ‘what could have been’ questions have been rampant since the Warriors knocked the Rockets out and went on to sweep the Cleveland Cavaliers. People in Houston genuinely feel that they’d be World Champions right now if not for Paul’s untimely injury.
In any case, Paul’s back for the long-haul with the Rockets and they’ll look to avenge their Western Conference loss against the Warriors.
