Rockets’ Chris Paul On Dwyane Wade Joining LeBron On Cavs: ‘I Want to Beat Them Bad’

In what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory, after one of the most frantic offseasons in recent history, new Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul has some thoughts about the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Particularly, Paul has some thoughts about Dwyane Wade joining LeBron James in Cleveland this season.

“I told them guys congrats,” Paul said, per Locked On Rockets’ Ben DuBose. “At the end of the day, I know [Carmelo Anthony] wants to beat them bad. I want to beat them bad. They want to beat us bad. It is what it is.”

Wade joining the Cavs wasn’t a surprise to anyone, after he reached a buyout agreement with the Chicago Bulls.

“Once I got the opportunity to get the buyout, I looked around, and I was flattered by the teams that reached out, but at the end of the day, this is where I wanted to be. This is where I felt I should be from a basketball perspective to come in and be a part of this,” Wade said, per ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin.

“This team right here from top to bottom is one of the most talented teams I’ve been on. Just happy to come and to be able to add whatever I can to this group.”

Cavs’ David Griffin Says Rodney Hood Will Surprise Fans

Published

on

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to build a new foundation after the free agent departure of LeBron James, who signed with the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this summer, and general manager David Griffin believes that one player in particular will surprise fans.

Griffin believes that Rodney Hood has a lot of potential and can establish himself as a core part of the Cavs roster.

“Cavs fans are going to see the best of Rodney Hood, because he’s capable of being what they need him to be within that framework of expectation” Griffin said, during an appearance on Wine and Gold Talk Podcast.

“He’s uber-talented; but when it’s put-up or shut up and the only thing that’s going to mark success is winning a championship, he doesn’t have that level of confidence yet,” Griffin stated. “But I think this Cavs team is going to let him find that in much the same way that he was so good with Utah [Jazz]. Members of his coaching staff told members of our coaching staff the year before I left (2017), that he was more important to them than Gordon Hayward,” Griffin said.

It appears that the Cavs are looking to invest, long-term, in Hood and will likely try to lock him up with a long-term deal sooner rather than later.
