Haliburton could be an ideal long-term fit with the Golden State Warriors, especially if they decide to trade back a few spots from No. 2. Going to Golden State would allow Haliburton to play to his strengths as a rookie. Having great players around him also makes some of his shortcomings less pronounced, alleviating pressure to quarterback an entire offense. Like we’ve seen with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander alongside Chris Paul and Dennis Schroder in OKC, multi-guard lineups have plenty of upside. And Haliburton doesn’t need volume to have a major impact. “I think I’m a really good fit there,” Haliburton said. “I think I can obviously come in and make shots as well and be in the first unit or lead the second unit.”
Silver got a lot of credit for shutting out COVID-19 positives, but Chris Paul, president of the Players Association, deserves as much credit for keeping the players unified. “Chris saved the season,’’ one NBA source said in referring to the pause of play after the Kenosha, Wis., shooting of Jacob Blake in August. Don’t think Knicks president Leon Rose didn’t notice the leadership of his former client.
While that was widely assumed, and everyone knew of the dysfunctional relationship between Harden and Paul, MacMahon gave some additional insight into the motivation that’s pretty notable. Apparently, Fertitta believed Paul had the “worst contract” he’d ever seen. The full monologue from MacMahon: That trade was made because Tilman Fertitta wanted it made — he thought Chris Paul’s contract was the worst that he’d ever seen in business or sports — and because James Harden wanted it made. James Harden, obviously there was a personality clash, this stuff has all been well documented and well reported. I still believe, and I wrote this last summer before things went down. I still believe that if necessary they could have managed that situation; I know a lot of people throughout the organization believe that.
