• Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Chris Paul is linked to a possible trade to Los Angeles Lakers
  • Three-time NBA champ Dwyane Wade is confident Paul and LeBron James would create a superteam
  • Wade pointed out that James has once again proven he can win with a veteran point guard with Rajon Rondo last season

Retired NBA player Dwyane Wade is thrilled about the idea of Chris Paul teaming-up with LeBron James and the stacked Los Angeles Lakers roster.

Following the rumors swirling around the NBA linking Paul to Lakers, the three-time NBA champion shared his thoughts on what could become one of the biggest trades this offseason.

In a recent talk with ESPN’s “First Take,” Wade, who is a close friend of both Paul and James, agreed that the pair would surely dominate the entire league.

“If that moment ever happens, you’re putting some of the greatest basketball minds together,” he stated.

According to Wade, James has already proven that he can win playing alongside a veteran point guard in Rajon Rondo last season.

With the potential addition of “CP3” to the star-studded cast, the 38-year-old Chicago native believes that the Lakers could even take it to another level.

“Chris Paul is in the same conversation. I’ve always said LeBron, CP, and Rondo are the smartest basketball players ever. When you think about what LeBron and Rondo accomplished this year, how they made that team work, if you add CP to that same kind of mix, Jesus Christ that’s domination,” Wade stressed.

While this wasn’t the first time Paul has been linked to the Lakers, Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus reported that an Eastern Conference executive told him that the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar would “love” to make a return trip to Los Angeles.

Paul played some of the best seasons of his stellar career with the Clippers, but according to the report, it is the Lakers he wants to play for this time around.

“Chris Paul would love to come back to L.A. I know it would be a dream come true for Chris,” one former Western Conference executive said. “I know LeBron [James] loves and trusts him and he would be a good fit.”

At 35, Paul is still regarded as one of the best point guards in the NBA. Last season, the 10-time NBA All-Star managed to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to the playoffs.

Though OKC suffered a devastating loss in a hard-fought 7-game series against the Houston Rockets, many lauded Paul’s display of incredible determination to win.

The renowned guard ended the 2019-20 NBA regular season with numbers identical to his prime years, averaging 18 points, seven assists, and five rebounds per game.
