The Phoenix Suns are among the West's best teams this season. With a 51-21 record, they are entering the playoffs with a lot of optimism and high expectations.
As for their star point guard Chris Paul, he's on a mission to capture that elusive Championship that will change his career forever.
And in a chat with the media, he recognized his no-Championship streak as the only record he wants to break.
Obviously, not having a Championship to his name is the biggest blemish of Paul's otherwise stellar resume. This year might be his best chance yet to change that.
Chris Paul has always been an elite-level guard. His scoring, playmaking ability, and leadership skills have kept him productive at this stage of his career and has the Suns as one of the best teams in the league.
But for as good as they've been, the question still remains: what can they do in the playoffs? In a Conference with multiple capable challengers (Clippers, Lakers, Mavericks, Blazers) it will take a near-perfect effort to make it through.
Paul doesn't have a good track record, and neither does his team. But, together, perhaps their drive and talent will be enough to pull it off in the end.
We'll just have to wait and see.
