He and the Cavaliers will begin Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday against the Warriors, which means that despite Paul's best efforts, his pitch may fall on deaf ears given his current situation that requires intense focus. I think the Warriors win the Finals - just like past year - in five games.
Golden State will be without 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala as he continues to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee.
New York Times writer Marc Stein wrote this week that Chris Paul's recruitment of LeBron to Houston had already started, but given that Paul will be a free agent as well - the two could wind up bypassing the Rockets, who are cash-strapped compared to the Lakers.
Only Houston has attempted more shots from beyond the arc than the Cavs this postseason and that over-reliance on three-pointers proved to be its downfall in Game 7, as the Rockets missed an astonishing 37 out of 44 efforts from long range.

But the Warriors are always the better team - and perhaps because of that, this Golden State squad has the nasty habit of playing disengaged, entitled basketball, trusting that they can play a one good quarter (or half of a quarter) and win. "They were one half away from winning a championship".
Or perhaps that disengagement manifests into offensive stagnation on one end of the court and opportunities for the Cavs on the other end. "He'll be back 100 percent and we're ready to go".
Apparently, Chris Paul thought this was an effective way of pitching a franchise, which is why he's reportedly already doing this with LeBron James.
The Warriors are overwhelming favorite to defend their title, but can LeBron James raise the bar yet again in what could be his last ever series with the Cavs? This is, of course, something that they didn't expect to happen.
