Chris Paul looks to get over playoff hump in Houston

Chris Paul didn’t talk about his legacy, and never uttered the word “championship” on Friday when he was officially introduced as the newest member of the Houston Rockets. “It’s not just about me coming here to help him,” Paul said. The Rockets haven’t won a championship since winning back-to-back titles in 1994-95, and knew they had to add another superstar to this team which was ousted by the Spurs in the second round last season to have any chance to get another one.

Paul Millsap’s Nuggets signing brings him back to his roots

Paul Millsap was welcomed back to his old neighborhood with a reception that included a drum line and cheering children. It was a contrast to how the newest Denver Nuggets player left town years ago as a kid — his mom struggling to make ends meet. “My history had a lot to play into (signing with Denver), actually,” said Millsap, who was touched by the band that greeted him, along with the throng of children.
