Paul and Tucker have been friends since childhood, playing with the Rockets from 2017 to 2019 before Paul was sent to Oklahoma City in the last off-season exchange at Russell Westbrook.
When asked at All-Star Media Day on Saturday in Chicago, where Paul, Westbrook and James Harden joined, Paul asked when he was the most taught player in recent times in Houston.
I probably learned more from PJ, PJ. I think it was Tucker. P.J. Tucker was like my brother. He is very disinterested and surrenders night and night.
PJ is like an unnamed hero of the NBA. You do not intend to put all these different types on the statistics sheet.
But P.J. Shouting at Him has just arrived, I think they guaranteed their last year. He needs expansion.
That is all he wants. The boy plays every night and cannot get an extension.
NBA Star Game: Chris Paul launches the first race in the alley on the Russell Westbrook Rob pass
The 2020 All-Star game includes more finishes than previous tires, and all the usual suspects, from LeBron James to Ben Simmons, threw a dump.
However, few expected Chris Paul to launch the dump, especially behind the alleys. Oklahoma City Thunder guard climbed in the first dump since the 2015-16 season, with Russell Westbrook taking a pass in the second quarter and the Jeannis team climbed 12-10.
This was not only Paul’s first dump in the game in years but also the first dump in the alley of his career.
Paul usually throws jumps over former teammates like Blake Griffin and De Andre Jordan, but this time he felt he was in the catcher and it was great to see him.
It was surprising that Paul and Westbrook had an unexpected connection in the chest when the Team Revlon bench jumped out of their seats and got excited.
