The news that the Los Angeles Clippers agreed to trade Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets sent shockwaves throughout the NBA, and one of the first to react to the move was none other than LeBron James.

James wasn’t the only athlete to react to the trade. Three of the players sent to the Clippers in exchange for Paul, Sam Dekker, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams both expressed excitement in joining their new team and admiration for their time in Houston.

Even Rockets general manager Daryl Morey sent a congratulatory tweet.

The rest of the Twitterverse, however, was left scrambling in the wake of such a blockbuster trade just days before the beginning of free agency.

Even Whataburger is excited about CP3’s move to Houston, for some reason.

After all the dust had settled, Paul himself poured out his feelings on Twitter.
