Chris Paul had zero time for the Milwaukee Bucks soon after they captured the NBA title on Tuesday night. The Phoenix Suns point guard could be seen walking straight to the locker room after the buzzer sounded and he acknowledged nobody on the Bucks as he walked away.
After the game, Paul made it clear he had no plans to retire and would continue his chase next season for a title.
Paul finished Game 6 on Tuesday with 26 points, five assists and two rebounds. In this year’s postseason, the 16-year NBA veteran averaged 19.2 points, 8.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds while averaging 34.2 minutes in 20 games.
With the offseason officially here, Paul has a $44.2 million player option to consider for the 2021-22 season. He is expected to decline it and become a free agent to possibly land a multiyear deal close to $60 million according to Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix.
