Chris Paul is the star point guard for the Phoenix Suns. He has been a part of the league since 2005. Cp3 was first drafted by the New Orleans Hornets as the 4th overall pick. Ever since then he has moved from franchise to franchise but never had a successful playoff run. In 2020, Chris Paul was signed by the Phoenix Suns.
The 2020-2021 post-season was a success for Chris Paul as he had made his first-ever NBA Finals. the Phoenix Suns were up against the Milwaukee Bucks. They had an amazing start to the series with a 2-0 lead.
However, Giannis Atetokounmpo and co spoiled the Suns’ party and crushed Chris Paul’s dream of getting his first NBA ring. The star pint guard is now 36 years old, the question is will he retire after this season or will the fight for his first NBA ring continue.

After a decent playoff run, Chris Paul will go home with a heavy heart. The 36-year-old superstar has worked for years to try and win his first NBA Championship. With the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul got closer than ever. He was two wins away from achieving one of his biggest dreams. But the Milwaukee Bucks were dominating and made sure that the Phoenix Suns did not win it all.

Despite losing the NBA finals, CP3 believed that the Phoenix Suns have everything to come back stronger and win a championship next season. He also mentioned that the only way he can better himself is if he learns what more he could have done in the series against the Bucks.
Everybody in that locker room knows we have enough, But it wasn’t enough. Nobody expected us to be where we are except us. I’ll look at myself on how I can get better and what I could’ve done more
