    Chris Paul is my favorite Rocket and I wanted to create this thread so that we can all thank Chris for every thing that he did for the Rockets. Here's why I'm thankful for Chris Paul:

    I think CP3's toughness, leadership, playmaking, and defense elevated this team to a new level. Now that he's gone I just hope that the franchise was able to internalize the lessons Chris Paul taught every day both directly as a teacher and indirectly by modeling ideal behavior both on and off the court for other players and even every day citizens to follow.

    The "wink wink" promise of a max deal should've been voided when he got injured in the CFs. He signed that contract while injured.

    He deserves better than OKC. I know that much. I hope he gets moved to Miami. The Eastern Conference and we won’t have to play him as often. He has to be pissed. His best shot was year one with us, and that damn hammy f***ed him, and us, over. We should have had trophy #3 that year. It is what it is. I wish him well and I sure hope Russell fits here, because he’s going to be here for the foreseeable future. If nothing else, everyone who follows the league is busy going, ”Houston did what??”

    Everybody's talking about us. Doesn’t win us any games, but it’s entertaining.

    Not sure if this got any run here yet, but I saw this tweet from J.J. Watt:

    I mean, the guy just got here, and he's low-key wanting to know what he can do to help. Durant that day would've leaked an unsourced blurb about how much he was spending. CP3 just wanted to know what he could do, and kept it between him and those he was trying to help.

    I didn't like his contract, and I didn't like this version of the player he is now on the team, but I'm going to miss him. And I hope he gets a ring.

    Just not before Houston.

    I don't know about him personally, but he always seems like a stand-up dude, and I wish he could've won a ring here. The only thing I really despised about him was the flopping, but hey... it's the NBA.

    I am very grateful for CP3's contributions over the past two years.

    His overall outlook, leadership and tenacity have deeply influenced the team. I wish him all the best in the future.

    We will never forget CP3's first season here. We trusted each other and fought hungrily. We won the best record in the team's history with 65 wins. We are only one leg short of the championship with CP3. The process is beautiful, the result is not always perfect, anyway, this is always a good memory, I will always remember.
