I think most teams wouldn't want to meet them in the first round. This isn't the Suns of 2 seasons ago.

Trust me, when you can choose among healthy Lakers, Nuggets, Jazz, Clippers, and Suns, the choice is simple. A 6'0, 35 yr old, injury prone CP3 is the only player on the team with mention-worthy playoff experience.
You talk about healthy teams and then say "injury prone" to make your point. It's a bad take. Why is Chris Paul the one that sticks out when Lebron, AD, PG, and Kawhi have all been injury prone recently? Paul has held up swimmingly, and I doubted his durability when the trade happened. He's only playing around 30-31 minutes a game, and isn't the main focus on the team, more of a facilitator and less needed for scoring most games. Anything can happen, but barring a catastrophe, he should be fine.
