Chris Paul stated in the past that he was caught off guard after being traded by the Houston Rockets last year.
It's safe to assume that when the point guard came to Houston from the Los Angeles Clippers, that he and Rockets guard James Harden would gel, maybe even become friends.
The gelling part never happened and based on what Paul told TNT's Chris Haynes, he and Harden don't speak at all these days.
Chris Paul very candid on where his relationship stands with James Harden leading up to the Thunder meeting the Rockets tonight on @NBAonTNT: “He’s not going to hit me to tell my daughter Happy Birthday today.” pic.twitter.com/MOalfyjDRE— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) August 18, 2020
"We don't talk, communicate, nothing like that," said Paul. "But that's all good and well, I wish him the best."
Are you surprised that Paul and Harden aren't on speaking terms?
