This deal seems much better for the Clippers than the Rockets. Houston gives up one defensive monster, a former (and runner up this year) 6th man, a good player in Sam Dekker and a draft pick to replace all that with an older, not-that-awesome-defensive-player-anymore PG (the position Harden played last season and almost was the MVP). CP3 and Harden will find a way to work together, but it’s a big gamble who probably won’t pay. For the Clippers, it’s the beginning of a new time, long overdue. For the Paul/Griffin/Jordan/Redick team, the ceiling was reached many seasons ago.
