“0%”: the superstar ruthlessly humiliated in the middle of a match!

Getting to the top of the NBA pyramid is one thing, but staying there is another. This is especially the case in the hyper-competitive microcosm of playmakers, where incredible names compete against each other. But for one of them, the end seems close, and the humiliation suffered in the middle of the broadcast attests to it…

Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Ja Morant, Luka Doncic, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Damian Lillard and so many others: the position of playmaker is literally overflowing with talent. For many years, CP3 has managed to stay in the top 5 of all rankings, surfing on its status as « Point God » and its talent allowing it to both score and distribute.

But now 37 years old (he is only 6 months younger than LeBron James), the former Rockets and Clippers player is starting to see the weight of the years catch up with him. And the supersonic train of the NBA does not usually stop to wait for those who fall from the wagon.

Chris Paul humiliated live against his rivals

During a recent Warriors game, an online poll was conducted by the broadcaster to define the best « ball handler », understand dribbler or ball handler, between Curry, Irving and Paul. If Uncle Drew’s victory in this matter is not surprising, poor CP3 received… 0% of the votes! Not 1%, not 2%: zero! The image is painful for him to see:

Beyond the hardness of this survey, which perhaps forgets a little too quickly the golden times of Point God, it is certain that Chris Paul is no longer the player he was. The numbers don’t lie: with 13.4 points and 8.4 assists on average, CP3 simply delivers the worst season of his career, he who was drafted in 2005. In the wake of their leader, the Suns are also less well, which obviously makes sense.

Old veteran and smart as a fox, Paul may be saving himself for the playoffs, in which he has often shone… without ever managing to climb the last step. One thing is certain, and elements such as this survey all point in this direction: the time is more than ever counted for the future Hall of Famer to hang a ring on his prize list, and the window may well have already closed …

A zero point is the sad sentence suffered by Chris Paul live in front of millions of viewers. Let’s hope that the Point God feeds on this affront to raise his level of play, and once again become the one who helped take the Suns to the NBA Finals!
