Rest assured that the Rockets’ understandably devastated Chris Paul — who made a fast exit from Toyota Center late Monday night after being forced to watch the biggest game of his life from the bench because of his hamstring injury — has already begun his recruitment of James to Houston.

NBA free agency doesn’t officially start until July 1, leaving plenty of time for recruiting pitches and changes of heart.
