Losing Game 7 in the Western Conference Finals to the Golden State Warriors was a crushing blow to the Houston Rockets as they missed two opportunities to eliminate the defending champions and make it to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2015. That's cool, I think.
That all became far more hard to impossible without Paul - and created no-win choices.
The Warriors fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, and nearly immediately, players (namely Draymond Green) started doing what they could to convince Durant that he was the missing piece they needed to become champions once again. "If we had Chris, if he was out there, we'd have been playing on Thursday [in Game 1 of the NBA Finals]".

Sanders then called on another reporter, ignoring Karl's follow-up question about what evidence she has to support her claims. Gowdy has been briefed on the classified documents about the continuing investigation that Republicans sought.
The Lakers have made an NBA-record 31 trips to the Finals and claimed 16 National Basketball Association titles. "I think no matter who came out of the West and who came out of the East, the Western Conference victor would have been the prohibitive favorite, for many different reasons", he said.

We'll have to see how this pans out but if LeBron were to somehow drop into our laps as fans, I wouldn't be 100 percent opposed to it. On several occasions, Morey has said he has built his team with Golden State in mind. They marched through the Eastern Conference.
Morey expressed optimism in having the team back in a similar if not better position next season. But I just felt like it was bad timing for our team to get rid of our point guard in Kyrie Irving. "The games will either excite people, the results will either excite people".
Trump to remove tariff exemption from EU, Canada, Mexico
US President Donald Trump promised to impose tariffs, claiming trade across the Atlantic was a one-way street. Such an action could hurt Mexico, Canada, Germany and Japan .
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. According to NBA.com, the Warriors' Game 7 win over the Houston Rockets on Monday was the second-most watched NBA game in cable TV history when it peaked at 18 million viewers.
Missing out on the final two games will eat away at the nine-time All-Star throughout the summer but the Rockets have shown they can compete with the reigning champs.
However, as Van Gundy noted, the Finals will feature plenty of star power, which should be enough to ensure viewer interest, even if the series turns out to be as lopsided as many expect.
