Gerald Green says Chris Paul is one of the best teammates he has ever had
Houston Rockets shooting guard Gerald Green says point guard Chris Paul is one of the best teammates he has ever had in his NBA career.
Paul’s reputation as a teammate has come into question after Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo called him a bad teammate.
Gerald Green, who has bounced around the league and had plenty of teammates, says Chris Paul is an awesome guy:
“Chris is an awesome teammate to me,” Green said. “I haven’t really been keeping up with all that stuff, I don’t know what your really talking about, but I can definitely talk about me and Chris as teammates. He’s an awesome teammate, man. Like for me, as soon as I got here, he was like the first person to kind of welcome me in, him and James [Harden].
“From day one, he’s always calling me after games. When I got suspended, he was calling me, making sure that I was ok and that my head was ok and stuff like that. I’ve had a lot of bad teammates before. Chris Paul is probably one of my best teammates I’ve ever had on a team, that’s just being real.”
