he did not have a good game 6 he had an average to bad game 6 by Paul standards. 5 assist and 3 turnovers for your pass first PG is not good.

the fact Paul is kind of escaping his finals meltdown is amazing to me.
“Escaping?” He’s been held to task by the national media and virtually every poster on ASFN. Most of us just aren’t so shortsighted and reactive to define his season and ability by a handful of games in the FINALS. I mean, he’s sucked the rest of the playoffs . . . right? Lol.

He actually played well in 3 of the 6 games. Considering that Booker only played well in 4 of the games, Bridges only showed up in 3 of the games and Ayton only showed up in 3 games also, the focus on Paul looking bad to weak is head scratching.
Yup. They never showed at the same time after the first game.

they wore us down like a boxer going to body in the early rounds to pay dividends late.

you could tell we were beaten down by the physical play by game 6
I don’t really agree. Those last three games wouldn’t have been close if that was the case. I think we played like a young team at the juncture of the games where it mattered most. We were right there in those three. To describe it otherwise is revisionist history.

With players getting two days rest between games in the Finals the boxing analogies mostly don't hold up for me.

flex is the same guy who said the league might be moving Game 1 of the Clippers series for no reason whatsoever (they didn't), that CP3 was looking good for Game 2 of the Clippers series (he wasn't), that CP3 was working out the entire time he was out (CP3 said he wasn't) and said Devin Booker didn't break his nose (he did... in three different places).

based on Flex's inside info (or lack thereof) during the WCF, looks pretty worthless to me.

i think we were beaten down mentally in the end, but a little on the physical side as well. the combo of those two enabled the Bucks to finish at the end of games where we wilted under the pressure and pounding.

Don't forget in the past he has used "well I was right than things changed" excuse multiple times. FLEX from Jersey is the Rachel Dolezal of insiders.

I don't know. Maybe Flex is for real and maybe he's just Flexibull. But for some people, he fills a hole left by a front office that keeps things very close to the vest most of the time.

Let him sign with the Lakers.
How much of an *** would he feel like if he signed with the Lakers then the Suns sweep him in the WCF next year.

Don't think CP3 is going anywhere. IMHO CP3 opts out of his PO, and takes a team friendly 3-4 yr deal in order to resign Payne and deepen our rotation.
