The advanced statistics show Paul’s record as a proven winner. In his stellar 13-year career, he has only missed the playoffs four times. He has played for the New Orleans Hornets, L.A. Clippers, and currently with the Houston Rockets.
Despite all these impressive statistics, the only thing that’s missing is a championship ring. And with the way the Rockets are performing this season, he may finally get that elusive title.
In a report Sarah Berger of CNBC, Paul recalled that moving to Houston was a major decision in his life. He also gave a glimpse into his decision-making process. Paul said:
“First and foremost have to try to find your happiness and what makes you tick,” says Paul, “and that’ll push you to the next level. Everyone always thinks us athletes, we’ve always got it together. That’s a lie,”
“I had been living in L.A. for the past six years. The decision that I made was not only going to affect me, but my family, my kids, everybody around me. It was a big decision.
“Who would have known it’s been one of the best things of my life.”
There’s no arguing that Paul is enjoying his most successful season thus far.
