I also think the fact that Booker struggled so much in the Clipper series and CP3’s epic close out game has let people focus on the CP3 of it all. Booker was having a MAJOR coming out party all the way through Game 1 of the WCF but that came to a screeching halt as he struggled for the rest of the series. It’s a what have you done for me lately press cycle and Chris impressed the most at the end of the conference finals.

and he’s just such an incredible story this season. This is a guy TWO teams left for dead and wanted to get rid of, who came to the worst team in the last decade and turned them into WCC. It’s a stamp of greatness on an already HOF career and the Finals will be a coronation of him as likely the second best PG ever when he holds up the trophy at the end.

Ayton anchoring our 107.6 playoff DRTG is still somehow getting lost in the shuffle.

that’s because defense isn’t a **** story to build highlight packages around. Never has been. Never will be.

that said, almost every interview I’ve heard on the radio about this team, they person interviewed always gives Ayton credit for reaching his potential and being the anchor for the defense that the Suns as a franchise has never had.

According to former Nets executive and ESPN cap guru Bobby Marks, the Suns can offer Paul a four-year deal while the Knicks can’t go past three years because of an obscure “over-38’’ bylaw in the collective bargaining agreement.

Marks predicts the Suns will net Paul with a three-year, $100 million contract if the veteran decides to opt out of the $44 million final season of his current deal.

If Leon Rose’s Knicks attempt to match the offer, the Suns can add a fourth year.

“I appreciate him a lot. I've been a sponge to him since the day he got here,” Booker said. “Our relationship definitely took off since he's been here.”

As a result, Paul and his young teammates have reached a destination that was once unfamiliar to them. While the Suns toiled in mediocrity, Paul experienced early playoff exits amid ongoing struggles with injuries and star teammates. Not anymore.

“It's a fun group to be around, and when you're around a group like that, you want to win,” Paul said. “You don't ever want the season to end because you actually like being around each other.”

I stumbled back across a video that I saw around the time the CP3 trade happened and it looks pretty genius now. Obviously most of us didn't see this coming this early, but this guy did.

Also he does curse quite a bit so if that's something that bothers you than you have been warned.

He makes good points. Great insight before the season. Don’t understand why anyone’s speech has to be so full of expletives. Makes him sound like an idiot to me.

Seems he isn't really trying to become a big channel as he'll never be monetized like that. Cursing has never really made people sound dumb to me, but I have been in the military for 18 years and that's how a lot of us talk around each other.

The reason it sounds dumb to me is the regular usage of useless words. They play no role in his communicating his point. They’re just garbage filler. It’s like people that fill their speech with a lot of “um’s” and “likes” and “uhhh’s”, except worse bc many people find it offensive.
