Chris Paul Reaches First NBA Finals At 36 With Phoenix

The former Houston Rockets star point guard Chris Paul has finally reached his first career NBA finals at the age of 36.

The Rockets traded Chris to Oklahoma City Thunder not more than two years ago. This came after many around the league wrote him off.

His 41 point performance in game 6 this morning lifted the Suns. They went past the Los Angeles Clippers into the team’s first finals since 1993.

Chris Paul became the star of the show in Thursday’s game 6 victory of the Western Conference finals at Los Angeles. He also led the Suns to a 130-103 victory over the clippers.

The guard aka ‘CP3’ and ‘The Point God’ scored a game-high 41 points on an incredible 16-of-24 shooting (66.7%) with 8 assists, and 0 turnovers.

After the game, Chris said he writes ‘’can’t give up now’’ on his sneakers before every game he plays. According to CP3, he has done that since the 2019 trade that sent him from the Rockets to Oklahoma City Thunder.

In his distinguished 16-year career, the extremely well-regarded player has made 11 All-Star teams. They named him to the All-NBA first team of second-team nine different times.

This includes a spot on the second team this season.

His first trip to the Western Conference finals happened in 2018 with the Houston Rockets. Chris’ season ended abruptly in game5 after he suffered a hamstring strain injury. The Rockets lost to the defending Champions that year, Golden State Warriors, in game 7.

‘’Being as close as he was in Houston and getting hurt and not having a chance to compete for a title, I know that burned him,’’ said Phoenix coach Monty Williams after game 6.
