Recently, Mario Ellie, the two-time Rockets star, also named Paul in an interview, saying he had to perform better in the next race.
To be a superstar, you cant just show your routine performance. Harden must seize the opportunity, and so must Paul. Eli said.
I dont want to see Harden play all by himself anymore. Paul cant evade his responsibility anymore. He said, Hes got a big contract of 160 million, and thats not a good point per game. He needs to break out, whether today or in the G7, he has to play a 26 + 13 performance, which is owed to the team, owed to the city. How can he help the Rockets win a playoff game with 12 or 13 points? Harden bears too much burden, and Paul should share it with him.
Ellie also criticized Capellas performance. Drummond Green has found his form now, but I never thought he could finish Clint Capella on the pitch. I think its very problematic. So is Clint. You have to prove youre qualified to get so much money. Everybodys watching.
In this series, many experts compare PJ-Tucker to Ellie, who once passed the No. 17 rocket. Ellie really appreciates Tucker. I love the way PJ is on the court. Hes a ball player.
But the Rockets have to rely on Harden Paul to win. James and Chris have to seize the opportunity to really show what a leader should look like before others can follow them.
