Chris Paul’s best teammates of all time

Chris Paul is one of the best point guards in NBA history. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day, regardless if he wins a championship or not.

Despite not having a title on his NBA résumé, Paul has played with a bevy of All-Star players so far in his NBA career. Unfortunately, injuries and things behind the scenes have prevented Paul’s teams from winning it all.

For this piece, we list the best teammates Chris Paul has had during his storied NBA career.

James Harden

Paul and James Harden were teammates for two years on the Houston Rockets. Harden won the 2017-18 MVP Award and finished his two-year run with Paul with averages of 33.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 8.1 assists.

Reports surfaced after the 2019 playoffs that Harden and Paul weren’t seeing eye to eye behind the scenes. The Rockets wound up trading CP3 to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Russell Westbrook.

Paul averaged 17.1 points and 8.0 dimes with Harden and the Rockets.

Blake Griffin

CP3 and Blake Griffin shared the same locker room for six years. During that time, the Lob City Clippers were one of the most exciting teams to watch during the regular season.

However, Paul and Griffin reportedly had beef behind the scenes as well and that affected the Clippers’ chemistry on the court. The Lob City Clips never advanced past the second round of the playoffs. The era ended during the summer of 2017 when Los Angeles traded CP3 to the Rockets.

Griffin averaged 21.3 points and 8.8 rebounds while Paul was his teammate. Paul, meanwhile, finished his Clippers career with averages of 18.8 points and 9.8 assists.

DeAndre Jordan

Another key member of the Lob City Clippers with Chris and Blake was DeAndre Jordan. DJ averaged 10.7 points and 12.0 rebounds while CP3 was the floor general of the Clippers.

There were rumors that Paul and Jordan didn’t get along well either. However, both players have denied that. Jordan is now on the Brooklyn Nets, teaming up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

JJ Redick

One of the best shooters in NBA history, JJ Redick was Paul’s safety net for four years. JJ averaged 15.8 points while shooting 44.0 percent from deep during his time in Los Angeles with Paul.

Every player from that Lob City Clippers era has said pettiness ultimately led to the downfall of the team, including Redick who genuinely believed they had a legitimate shot at winning an NBA title during their run together.

David West

Chris Paul and Davis West tore defenses apart in the pick-and-roll/pop game during their time together on the New Orleans Hornets. They were teammates for six seasons.

Paul averaged 18.7 points and 9.9 assists while West was on the Hornets. Meanwhile, West put up 19.2 points and 8.0 rebounds during his time with CP3.
