By the end of their time together on the Rockets, Chris Paul and James Harden reportedly had significant tension between them.

Harden denied it. PJ. Tucker denied it. Daryl Morey denied it.

Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated:

Paul acknowledged that he and Harden “haven’t really talked” since he was traded.

“It’s life. It happens. It is what it is. But I wish him nothing but the best,” Paul said.

Yup, it sounds as if Paul’s and Harden’s relationship was in a very healthy place.
