Chris Paul is having a dream run in the 2021 NBA Finals. The Phoenix Suns have now recorded a 2-0 lead in the 2021 NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks. Chris Paul has been a part of the NBA for many years and this is his first time in an NBA Final. The veteran point guard is now 2 wins away from getting his first-ever ring. He has the support of every Phoenix fan and his teammates as well. CP3 has also received a ton of support from his friends and NBA superstars, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.
LeBron James: “1 down. 3 to go”
LeBron James and CP3 have been a part of each other’s lives since the AAU days. The two superstars have faced off in the NBA 28 times before the 2021 playoffs. Normally a rivalry stirs up between players who enter the league around the same time but with these two men, it’s all about love and brotherhood.
In 2021, CP3 was up against LeBron and the Lakers in round 1. When asked about the matchup ahead of the game, LeBron James made sure to tell the media that their friendship is not something that will be affected by a playoff matchup.
I don’t really talk about my accolades… Our friendship is beyond that.
The Lakers were eliminated by the Suns and ever since then, it has been clear where LeBron’s support lies. King James took to Twitter to express his support for Chris Paul.
1 down. 3 to go @CP3
