                me finding out that the rockets paid a no-show; $160 million 4-year deal basically being paid $40 million a year:

                  Cp3 would rather flop and try to get a foul call than actually play hard and fight for possession of the ball... all these games were so close if Cp3 didnt flop so much the Rockets could've taken the Warriors to 7 games .

                      Cp3 never used the stepback or shoot as much in his career as he has in this Houston team. He cannot shoot from 3 consistently that is a fact ! He is a pass , floater 15 footer type of guy that's it.

                                The Rockets must rue the day they gave Chris Paul all that $$ along with losing Lou Williams and Montrez Harrell in the process. Would the Rockets fared better had they had Lou and Montrez instead of Chris Paul?

                                                  It's the whole rocket fault especially on the defense of end year they stop Curry for the first half but didn't make enough adjustments to stop him the 4th Quarter wasn't aggressive attacking the paint late in the game have other player standing around making it easier fruit the warriors to trap and double James bad executions late and the have when it so close

                                                          Chris Paul has always choked and been a no show in the playoffs throughout his career. Couldn't believe Houton resigned him to that contract.

Cp3 can't step up cuz it's the Harden show. If they let him run point, they'd add dimensions and be harder to stop. Too bad that'll never happen with Harden.
