Chris Paul asked James Harden to meet at a restaurant in Los Angeles a few days after he was traded to the Rockets.

Paul had been waiting to ask Harden one question.

"What is your ultimate goal in basketball?" asked Paul of Harden.

Harden replied that he wanted to win a title.

"He said he was excited about not having to do it all -- about getting the ball out of his hands a bit," Paul said.
