How Paul continues to shine for the Suns
Chris Paul is still a man on a mission despite losing to the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2021 NBA Finals. The star guard is doing his best to lead the Phoenix Suns to a deeper push in the 2021-22 season and his game keeps on proving that he is the best leader for the team.
Paul’s antics continue to show that his quest to win an NBA title is not yet over. Reaching the NBA Finals in 2021 is the farthest he’s been to in his career. The Point God wants to bring more success to the Suns and he is up for the big task at hand.
The Suns are off to a good start in the 2021-22 season thanks to Paul’s lead and they are doing a great job of staying on the hunt. That shows why Paul is a huge part of the Suns’ chances of winning a title this season. He is the Suns’ last piece of the puzzle that completes the team as a whole.
If the Suns can get to a title run once more, then there is no telling how history would put Paul as one of the best players in his spot. He’s proven his worth over the years with the New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Paul’s career has been bleak without a shot at the NBA Finals, and he was frustrated over the years before he found his big break with the Suns.
His run with the Suns has been the best story so far. Both Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton have learned a lot from Paul’s antics and he’s been the best general for the squad. His experience gives them a big boost in basketball IQ and it also helps them stay focused in their games.
Paul’s quest for a title remains alive with the Suns which is seen in his games for the team. The guard recently notched a huge feat of being the first player to reach 20,000 points and 10,000 dimes in the game. That shows a lot about his game despite being one of the oldest players in the league.
At the age of 36, Paul is still kicking in his 17th season. He averaged 18.3 points, 9.4 dimes, and 4.5 boards per game in 1,091 games in his career. He is also the highest active player in the league’s all-time assist list.
Those are just his numbers. Paul’s motivations are far deeper than all of those. He wants to make history and that is going to take a lot of his grit. If he is going to lead the Suns to a league title in the 2021-22 season, it will take more than his 100% to bring them to the biggest stage in the NBA.
