Harden says that with the CP3 signing, the Rockets are now “right there” with the NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
Harden, 27, re-upped in H-Town on a massive extension this summer.
Per USA Today :
“I just knew that in the summertime obviously (Paul) was a free agent, and I wanted to see where his head was,” Harden said of Paul, who will now be a free agent next summer. “He didn’t seem happy, so after that we just took it from there.
 
“Obviously Golden State has been in the Finals and won two out of three, so that’s what everybody is trying to build up against. But we’re right there. We’re right there. Obviously, we have a lot of work to do, but it definitely puts us in a better chance.”
