Chris Paul is four games away from winning his first NBA championship and confirming he's one of the best point guards in NBA history. Moreover, he can destroy one graphic that shows his former teammates winning titles before him.
The Phoenix Suns start has found his place in the world in Arizona, bringing a lot of joy to fans, the team, and himself. If CP3 wins the NBA Finals, he will join three former teammates as NBA champions.
He was the leader of that magical 2008 New Orleans Hornets team that clinched the 2nd seed in the Western Conference, beat the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoff, and took the San Antonio Spurs to seven games in the West semifinals. CP3 was joined by Tyson Chandler, Peja Stojakovic, and David West.
A couple of years after that incredible run, Chandler and Stojakovic won a championship with the Dallas Mavericks while David West did the same with the Golden State Warriors.
It was unfair to see that CP3 was the only one who hadn't won the title when he was the most talented player in that group. Well, things could change in a couple of weeks if he wins the championship with the Suns.
The job won't be easy, of course, but Paul isn't afraid of the challenge. This team has done a lot to land in the biggest series of all, and they won't go down without putting up a fight.
After 16 years, Paul will finally play for the NBA championship.
