Chris Paul's 2019/20 NBA season has been nothing but terrific. The veteran point guard was shipped from the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder last summer in exchange for Russell Westbrook. A lot of people believed that was the end of his career since he landed in a team with plenty of young players without big expectations around them. Well, he proved everybody wrong and took this squad to the 5th position in the stacked Western Conference.

Paul proved himself this year, earning the call to the All-Star game after several years of absence. He became the leader of this team and actually led it to the postseason. Even after that, people thought it was the end for Paul, who forced a Game 7 yesterday after dropping 28 points on his former team, the Houston Rockets.

Everybody was in awe after Paul's performance, especially after he took over in the fourth quarter and led his team to the victory. CP3's good friend LeBron James sent a message to those who still doubt Paul. Put some respect on this man's name.

This has been a great year for Paul. He became that dude once again and is leading a young team to be competitive in a conference with plenty of good teams and players. If they win Game 7, they'll face the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round. LeBron is trying to aware everybody that as long as Paul keeps playing at this level, the Thunder will have a shot against anybody.
