“I mean he ain’t going to hit me to tell me to tell my daughter happy birthday today,” Paul said. “You know what I mean? We don’t talk, communicate, nothing like that but that’s all good and well.
“I wish him the best in any and everything he does. Like that’s one thing I think people fail to realize sometimes in these situations. Sometimes you have teammates and is for that period of time, but that’s okay. You can wish each other well, going forward it don’t mean you have to be kumbaya and it doesn’t mean you have to be enemies.”
Paul has taken a young Thunder team to new heights this season, securing the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference.
They will be matched up against Harden’s Rockets in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Paul is averaging 17.6 points, 6.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game this season.
