In one of the biggest trades of the 2017 NBA offseason, the Los Angeles Clippers superstar point guard Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets. The Clippers received a lot for CP3 though, they received Sam Dekker, Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, DeAndre Liggins, Darren Hilliard, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Wiltjer, a top three protected 2018 first round pick and $661,000 in cash (according to ESPN). This was a huge trade for both of the Western Conference elite teams and could be good for both of them.

The Houston Rockets were already one of the best teams in the league and more specifically the Western Conference during last season, but with the addition of one of the greatest point guards of all time, Chris Paul.

They could be even better this upcoming season. LeBron James recognized this and took to Twitter to send an appreciative message to Chris Paul on his new adventure and also mentioned the city of Houston.

LeBron tweets about the Chris Paul trade

LeBron James often takes to his Twitter and social media accounts to discuss his thoughts and views on certain situations in the NBA, basketball and the world. On Wednesday, when the star point guard was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Houston Rockets, King James tweeted about this situation, saying:

In this tweet, LeBron tells Houston Rockets' fans to appreciate because they have a 'great one'.

Chris Paul is one of the greatest point guards of all time and as a fan of a team, if he somehow ends up on the team you support, you should be grateful. Now the Rockets have an insane backcourt of James Harden and Chris Paul, but how far will this team go in the tough Western Conference?

How good can this team be?

Chris Paul and James Harden on paper look like a force to be reckoned with. A player that had his best career season in 2016-17 averaging 29.1 points, 11.2 assists, 8.1 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.5 blocks on 44% shooting coupled with a player who's averaged a consistent 19 points, 10 assists over his whole career, spells trouble.

Although James Harden has pushed himself into the conversation of one of the best passers in the league, Chris Paul is still renowned as arguably the best passer and floor general in the league, and combining their passing skills could help the Rockets become even more dangerous.

Last season, Harden used his passing skills to get open looks for players such as Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson, it made Houston the highest three-point shooting team in the league. Now Harden may do less facilitating, but that won't be a bad thing, in any case, CP3 running the show is always a good sign.
