While it may not have been his fault this time around, Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul reacted to yet another season falling short of his ultimate goal.
Scott Foster or not, Paul will have to go back to the drawing board this offseason. He’s a pending free agent, and it’s unknown whether or not he’ll be back with the Suns or seek employment elsewhere.
Paul has been connected to the New York Knicks and the like. For now, though, it’s far too early to consider his offseason expectations. Paul is reflecting on what was a great season with the Suns. While it ended in disappointment, CP3 deserves credit for leading a young team oh so close to glory.
Suns: What did Chris Paul say after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks?
“For me it just means back to work. Nothing more, nothing less. There are no moral victories. We’ve seen what it takes to get here, and hopefully we see what it takes to get past that,” Paul said, via FanSided’s Gerald Bourguet.
In the end, Paul’s season ended in familiar fashion. Sure, he played a bit longer, and reached a few milestones. But without an NBA Title to his name, will Paul ever fulfill his NBA destiny? Or will he be yet another NBA legend that never reached the pinnacle of the sport?
Hopefully for CP3, he’ll get that coveted ring eventually. Even if he’s a benchwarmer on a superteam in a half-decade, he clearly deserves some sort of hardware.
We’ll see if his future lies in Phoenix or elsewhere.
