Paul was the perfect addition for them. He brings experience and leadership.

After a healthy Nets team, they have the best backcourt in the NBA. Great young big man.

They’re a force in the playoffs man, watch out for the Suns.
Go Raps!!

The remaining 5% is the Gorilla’s improvement.

Suns went 8-0 in bubble with Chris Paul. They turned the corner before he got there.

Jesus Christ. They don’t even have a top 3 backcourt. Dame/CJ, Russ/Beal, and Conley/Mitchell are better.

2 of those 3 backcourts barely hanging on as play-in teams. The other too unhealthy to take the court. Gimme CP3 and Book any day.

You mean without CP? There is no question that their young players are becoming better but I contend that with Paul's leadership they have made a leap.
