Lakers LeBron wrote:A Chris Paul injury away from beating an unbeatable Warriors team


Playing that game, the W's should have won 5 straight, Curry injury and bogus Green suspension for stepping over LeSoft and then the KD/Klay injuries.

I will remember him positively for his step back 3, strip club funding, and beard.
Negatively for foul baiting in the lane and attitude. Also overall how he played isn't good for the game.

More concerned about putting up junk time points chasing individual honors than winning a championship.

Losing in the playoffs constantly in humiliating ways, playing aesthetically awful basketball, introducing odious foul baiting and faking into the modern game, endangering people's lives and livelihoods by going out to party in a pandemic, quitting on his team like we haven't seen since Carter, throwing his teammates under the bus to the media.

Wishing nothing but the worst for the guy.

A great professional, the lifeline of any of those Rockets team, always delivered, and the Rockets would have won one title if CP3 didnt get injured on that finals

Best SG of his era. Best scorer of his era. Unfairly labeled a playoff choker due to co-existing at the same time as the Warriors dynasty. Most aesthetically unappealing playstyle of any superstar in my lifetime.

He won more playoff games against the KD Warriors than the rest of the league combined. Had CP3 not gotten injured that year, Houston might have even won the series (and then the title).

He's one of the greatest players of all time, despite not winning it all (there is only so much you can do with limited talent around you: see Lebron before he left the Cavs the first time).

Watching him play is the best remedy for insomnia problems.

Thank you James, for everything you have done for my health.
