Chris Paul gets ejected after he bumped the referee with his shoulder
What Chris Paul is doing with the Phoenix Suns is downright incredible. The Suns have dominated the NBA all season long. Chris Paul and Devin Booker have formed the best backcourt duo in the NBA. They have led the Suns to the league’s best record. This season, Chris Paul and Devin Booker led the Suns to a franchise record eighteen game winning streak. It took the Golden State Warriors to end that win streak, as sports pundits predict they’ll face off in the Western Conference Finals.
Last season, Chris Paul played in his first ever NBA Finals, after playing for sixteen years. Prior to joining the Phoenix Suns, many felt Chris Paul was on his way to retirement. After playing with the Clippers for six years, Chris Paul was traded to the Rockets. In his short time with the Rockets, Chris Paul helped them win a franchise record 65 games. During the 2018 playoffs, Chris Paul finally got to the Conference Finals, where they lost to the Warriors in Game 7.
This year, Chris Paul is playing some of the best basketball of his career. Instead of retiring, Chris Paul may very well wind up being the league’s MVP. After years of struggling, the Suns began playing better in the 2020 bubble. Adding Chris Paul took them from a fringe playoff team to being title contenders. Last night, the Suns were in Houston, where they played a tough game. Upset with the referee, CP3 got mad and bumped him with his shoulder. That earned him his ejection.
