Chris Paul hopes to catch Dennis Rodman’s championship total

The high-powered Houston Rockets cemented their status amongst the NBA’s elite teams with a dominant 124-109 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night. Among the notable performances was that of superstar point guard Chris Paul, who recorded 28 points, eight assists, and seven steals.

Even more impressive, the Rockets are now 13-0 to start the 2017-18 season in every game that Paul has started. As a result, he joined the legendary Dennis Rodman as the only players to do so. However, upon learning about his most recent feat, Chris Paul said he hoped to continue emulating Rodman in terms of winning championships, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon

“Cool. Dennis Rodman got more rings than me. We’ll see if I can catch him or not.”

Although the playing style of Dennis Rodman and Chris Paul could not be any more different, their tenacious approach to the game is very similar. Prior to his unceremonious exit from the NBA, Rodman had a knack for playing integral roles on championship teams.

Dennis Rodman won his first two championships as a member of the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons before finishing off with the three-peat Chicago Bulls from 1995-1998. Needless to say, Paul has not had the same fortune of playing on the caliber of teams Rodman had. That was until this year when he signed with the Rockets in the offseason.
