Chris Paul’s unexpected remark on his family’s disbelief about his Warriors membership: There’s more to it than meets the eyes!
Chris Paul, a veteran NBA point-guard, revealed recently that his family still cannot believe his decision to join Golden State Warriors. Paul said that in a media interview, his family struggled to accept his decision to join Golden State Warriors. He stated: “They can’t believe it. They’re like, ‘Man, I can’t believe you’re going there.’ But it is what it is.”
Paul’s decision join the Warriors – a team well known for their dominant roster – has raised eyebrows from fans and analysts. Paul, however, seems to have accepted the situation. Paul is focused on his basketball and wants to make the best of his time in the Warriors. Paul’s experience and leadership skills add value to a team that already has many stars.
Chris Paul trained with new teammate Stephen Curry Las Vegas, Sunday morning. The session was a success, according to his assessment: There weren’t too many missed shots.
Paul’s time in the military was not a success. Golden State Warriors The start is off to an amazing start.
In his first interview as a Warriors player, the veteran point guard said he is not ready to admit that he is no longer the starter. He also doesn’t think this will be his last season. And he still gets the same enjoyment from playing the game as when he played as a child.
As for the way it will all fit together, he does not expect this to be an issue.
“Not to like sound crazy or whatnot, but at the end of the day, it’s basketball,” Paul said. “You know, it’s not brain surgery. I’m going into a situation with a bunch of guys who’ve been playing together for a long time.”
Paul has been traded twice since the summer. from Phoenix Jordan Poole was sent to the Wizards by the Golden State Warriors as part a deal that saw Bradley Beal go to Washington.
Warriors hope that this decision will have both short-term and long-term advantages. Paul is still playing at 38 years old. This 12-time All Star averaged 13.9 points and 8.9 assist this past year for Phoenix.
He is also out of contract at the end of this season. Poole signed a deal for four years. The Warriors, who are known to spend a lot of money, couldn’t afford all their top-paid players in the same team. Collective Bargaining Agreement.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to play on three USA teams, ‘06, ’08 and 2012,” Paul said. “It’s high-IQ basketball, guys that play off reads and whatnot, and what you learn is you figure it out. Everybody don’t have the answers right now. We’ll practice, I’m sure there’s going to be some things that I’ve got to learn, some things that they’ve got to learn about me, but that’s the case with any team.”
He has played in 1,214 games in the regular season and another 149 playoff games, starting every one. He is not likely to replace Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson in Golden State’s starting lineup.
Paul, who is 38 and entering his 19th NBA year, could be in a different position. But there is an obvious tradeoff, since the Warriors will almost certainly be considered a title-contender going into next season after winning four championships in the last decade — and Paul has never gotten his championship. In 2021, he went to the NBA Finals in Phoenix. However, the Suns lost after blowing a 2-0 lead. to Milwaukee in six games.
“It’ll be a conversation for us when camp starts. … I think we’ll figure all that stuff out,” Paul said.
Paul’s and the Warriors’ histories have been linked for a long time. Paul has scored more points against Golden State than he has any other team – 1,172, which is 14 more than he scored against the Los Angeles Lakers. He played 18 games in the playoffs against them. That’s tied with his other opponents for most.
Paul has the most assists and games against the Warriors among active players. LeBron James James Harden, the only active player who has scored more against Golden State.
There’s also the history Paul would like to forget: how the Warriors thwarted two of his greatest chances at winning a championship. In 2018, Paul and The Warriors were able to defeat each other. Houston Rockets had a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference finals before he got hurt, missed the final two games and Golden State prevailed — on the way to the NBA title. The Warriors also beat Paul’s Rockets in 2019 in the West semi-finals. They lost to Toronto, however, in the NBA finals.
He said that even his own family cannot believe he is now a part of the Warriors.
“It is what it is,” Paul said. “Sports.”
Paul, who has never received a ring, will help the Warriors win their fifth title in ten years. But when asked if that was his sole motivation for still playing, Paul insisted that he just still loves the game — and intends to keep playing for multiple years.
“I get a chance to play basketball every day and say, ‘that’s my way of life,'” Paul said. “So you’re saying, ‘why do I do it?’ For the same reason I did it when I was 4 or 5 years old. You know what I mean? I wouldn’t spend the time training and working out and hooping and being away from my family if I didn’t love it. That hasn’t changed.”
