(Video) Chris Paul Shows Why He Is One Of The Best Defenders In The NBA: "Stop Playing With CP3"

Chris Paul has been in the league for a long time. The NBA veteran has numerous skills that make him an elite point guard. He can pass, score, dribble, and most importantly defend as well.

In fact, throughout his career CP3 has been a sensational defender. If a team has a player like him on their roster, it becomes easier for them to win games. We saw Paul's instant impact on the Suns when he joined the team. From struggling to even make it to the playoffs to going all the way to the NBA Finals.

Unfortunately, the Suns lost the finals, but they still have an impressive roster and can try again this year. After winning the game against the Houston Rockets, the Suns are now 9-3 in the 2021-22 NBA season. They are also unbeaten in eight games, which is currently the longest winning streak in the league. 

In their recent fixture against the Rockets, CP3 put on a show as usual. During the game, the Suns' guard once again proved why he is considered as one of the best defenders in the league, which it seems Kevin Porter Jr. forgot.

Porter Jr. tried to dance his way past Paul, but it didn't have any effect on him. The end result? CP3 poked the ball out of his hands incredibly fast. Upon seeing the clip, NBA fans reacted to it. Here are some of the best reactions to the post:

The video perfectly summed up how amazing of a defender Paul actually is when is healthy. Unfortunately, in his career CP3 has missed many chances of winning an NBA title due to his injury troubles.

Maybe he could have already won an NBA Championship if he managed to stay fit. Regardless of the past, the 36-year-old is certainly in the last dance of his career. He might retire with the Suns whether he wins a title or not.

Keeping that in mind, the Suns have a lot to lose this season. Can they finish the job they failed to do last season? We will figure that out in the next few months.
