Chris Paul and James Harden are brand new teammates after the point guard landed in Houston to play with the Rockets next season.
In the light of the news that Harden landed an NBA record contract extension (crazy details here), Paul had the perfect response.

This tweet is laced with awesomeness. First off, clearly Paul isn’t jealous (much). Instead, he’s happy for Harden, which is the appropriate response.
Secondly, Paul is poking fun at all the analysts who wonder how he and Harden will be able to co-exist in the same backcourt, given the fact that both of them are best with the ball in their hands.
Also, we can be assured that Paul will let Harden pick up the check the first time the two of them go out to dinner after a game.
