James Harden doesn’t think Chris Paul is recruiting LeBron James to Houston
Chris Paul and LeBron James are close, and there have been many talks in the past about them teaming up on an NBA team in the future. This summer could be a perfect time making a new super team with the Houston Rockets, but James Harden doesn’t think Paul is recruiting James to the Lonestar State, at least not yet.
“Nahh,” Harden said via the LA Times. “Him and Chris are really tight. As a friend, him and Chris are really good friends. I don’t think they talk about him coming to Houston. I think they talk about basketball and if LeBron wants to say, ‘Hey, I’m thinking about coming your way,’ then that’s a discussion we can have. I don’t think they talk about it.”
Harden also thinks that it doesn’t matter who recruits him, he isn’t going to base his decision on what others suggest that he do, he will do what’s best for his family.
“Honestly, like, what, LeBron’s about to be in his 16th year in the league?,” Harden said. “I don’t think there’s anybody that can persuade him to go where he wants to go. I think it’s all up to him at this place in his career. He’s got three championships. It’s about business, it’s about family for him.
There is a chance that James could opt into his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and this would all be a non-story, but most believe that once July 1 rolls around, he will be a free agent, and then the madness will begin.
