Can we see Paul in a Lakers jersey in our lifetime? ( I )

It’s another day without a game, so let’s talk about Chris Paul.

Suns Jersey

Chris Paul

Back to business, some experts suggest that if Paul falters in this year’s NBA Finals, he could decline his final year $44 million player option and join LeBron James’ Lakers.

Paul’s career has to be described with the word legend – 11-time All-Star and surely a Hall of Fame in his future. In terms of individual accolades, he has accomplished almost everything but a championship ring to wear.

Having played for the Hornets, Clippers, Rockets, Thunder and now the Suns, it’s safe to say Paul has yet to join a super team. That might explain why he didn’t make it to the NBA Finals until this year.

NBA Jerseys

If you can’t get a championship this year, then there’s really not much time left for 36-year-old Paul, and he’ll have to join a super team, and the Los Angeles Lakers are a better choice.

This year’s playoffs, the Lakers were eliminated in the first round by the Phoenix Sun led by Paul, but we look at the following chart, we can find the original Sun in the playoffs the most difficult to play is the Lakers, if there are no injuries, the Sun may not win.

The Lakers are what strength, Paul has seen.

Although the Sun took a 2-0 lead at the start of the series, the Bucks came back with three straight games thanks to the extraordinary play of the “Big Three”, and now the Sun is trailing the Bucks 2-3 and is very passive.

Paul and his Suns must win the next two games to achieve their goal. If they don’t, Paul’s first trip to the Finals will end in failure. As he gets older, there is no telling when Paul will make it to the Finals again. So, the time has come when he must join forces with James and Davis!

As a close friend of Paul’s, James was there for the Finals G5 game and knows better than anyone the value of winning multiple NBA championships with a superstar.

Chris Paul: has worn the jersey of 5 teams, winning percentage guaranteed! Controversial career just short of a championship

Like Kobe’s famous quote: Love me or hate me, it’s one or the other. There is no shortage of controversial players in the NBA, and Chris Paul is one of those players that people love and hate.

On the one hand, Paul was rated as high basketball IQ, high ball IQ, mid-range accuracy, on the other hand, Paul was criticized for more small actions, playing wave cunning. But recently the U.S. media statistics in recent years Paul joined the team before and after the win rate, found interesting figures.

Suns Jersey

From the Hornets to the Sun, Paul has worn five jerseys, five teams have each improved their win rate, such as the Hornets from 22% to 46.3%, the original 39% win rate of the Clippers to 60.8%, the Rockets from the original has been as high as 67.1% win rate to 79.3%, more refreshing team records. Period after the Thunder also from 59.8% to 61.1%, to the current Suns, also from 46.6% to 72%

From the data to see Paul go to that team, the team’s win rate have significantly improved, coupled with its role of point guard, visible in the team’s greatest chemistry is to control the court, organization and make teammates. Even though he is 35 years old, he does not have the same physical quality as LeBron James, but he can still help his team win with his high ball IQ, so it is no wonder that even James gave Paul the appraisal of “God of point guards”.

Suns Statement Jersey

Paul drafted 16 seasons, career average 18.4 points, 9.4 assists, 4.5 rebounds per game, but than playing physical ball, Paul prefers from see the situation, strategy, and then create opportunities, tight defense and blocking, focus on details to make his team even if less physical than the opponent, there are ways to achieve victory.

Whether it is the use of tactics, wandering in the gray area between foul and no foul, or timely instigation of the referees to enforce the law, are considered Paul’s high ball IQ performance, so that opponents relative headache. On the contrary, having a small smart also as powerless as Paul is that although the win rate is high, but temporarily missing a proof, because the proverbial foot is just a little bit short of the championship, stopping Jiji in the championship road.

Chris Paul remembers his first game with childhood idol Allen Iverson 

Allen Iverson is one of the few players who has been able to influence not only the game of basketball, but the culture of basketball as well. When it comes to his popularity, many NBA players, even today, would rank ai as one of the most exciting and entertaining players we’ve ever seen, and rightfully so.

Chris Paul recalls his past with Iverson

Chris Paul spoke about Iverson’s influence on him and his career during an appearance on Knuckleheads podcast. It’s no coincidence that Paul also wears the No. 3 jersey, and most importantly, he has a very similar passing ability to Iverson’s past in a lot of his games, especially his ball-handling ability. The main difference between them is that Paul wants to get his other teammates involved, while Iverson can slash 40 points against any team in the league.

In the podcast, Paul said he will never forget his first game with Iverson, the first rookie to give him a lot of trouble. Paul quickly realized he was playing against his idol, trying to break him at the first time and constantly attacking the basket.

As Paul was growing up, Iverson started gaining huge popularity and you could see kids wearing his jerseys and braiding their hair the same way he did. Paul did the same thing, and watching No. 3 play in Philadelphia inspired Paul to become an equally great player.

Chris Paul, via Knuckleheads podcast, said: When I played against him, I wore No. 3. I mean, I had my hair braided in high school, and Dad didn’t like it. I wanted a tattoo or something.

The 76ers won that game with Chris Paul scoring just nine points, while Iverson was the top scorer for both teams with 24 points. Despite his poor performance against his idol, Iverson surprised Paul by asking him to sign autographs for his son after the game. His son was a huge fan of Paul’s at the time, which shocked Paul because he was still a rookie and he actually signed for his idol Iverson’s son.

Chris Paul, via podcast, said: I’ll never forget, after that game, he asked me if I could sign his shoes because his son wanted them, and I was confused. You’re Iverson, why does your kid care about me? When I started having kids, about my shoes, it started to make sense.

Paul ushered in the only opportunity to retire his jersey and leave a root to his career

The biggest regret for Chris Paul’s current career is that so far it is not which team is famous, although currently has experienced five teams including the current Sun, but in the first four teams resume are not enough to put Paul in the team’s history, after all, the breakthrough to the team is too small, there is a Hornets team with the current Hornets but not much to do with.

Nuggets Jersey

It is said that Paul is the top point guard in the league, but the strength is no longer good after a team will write him into history, then such a history of the best really does not make sense, sooner or later is to be forgotten, with Paul’s current achievements in several teams, there will not be a team for him to hold a jersey retirement ceremony, although this does not mean a very high honor for the player, but this can show that they have roots in this league

From the current event to see, Paul’s NBA jersey retirement or the opportunity, the opportunity is in the Sun, the current Sun has entered the Western Conference semifinals, the first round is eliminated to win the popular Lakers, the situation is also considered a good, plus the next round to face the Nuggets, despite the season’s MVP Jokic sitting, but Murray’s injury gave the Sun more opportunities, if the champion Paul for this team’s significance is naturally different

If the sun can win the championship, it is the team’s first championship, by virtue of the significance of this first championship, even if Paul leaves the sun next season, there is a high probability that the sun will be retired jersey, and this should also be the only opportunity for Paul’s career, if after the second line of retirement, and there are no years of career, then Paul even win the championship was retired jersey possibility is not high.

Suns Jersey

Sun this season there is indeed a chance, from the beginning no one is optimistic about the sun, to Booker into the playoffs played a very high level, which allows the sun to see hope, on the current western team, the sun is not afraid of any team, on the west any opponent to win the game may be, to say the finals on the most afraid to meet who, it is estimated that only the Bucks, the sun only play the Bucks will not have much.

Some people say that this season’s Sun got the script of the year when the Mavericks won the championship, especially the East is also the first season to form the Big Three, if it goes according to this script, then Paul’s roots in this league belong to the Sun.
