Rob Parker: People Were Too Quick to Anoint Chris Paul & the Phoenix Suns


The Phoenix Suns did what they were supposed to, which was to defend their home floor. Milwaukee Bucks followed that up by striking back two times against a much-hyped Western Conference team that seemed poised to bring home the gold for the first time in franchise history. Now, with the series at an even 2-2, we all know very little about which team really has this series in their hands.

Chris Broussard & Rob Parker give us their biggest takeaways from Game 4, where we saw the veteran point 'god' Chris Paul fall from grace in a performance that left fans dumbfounded and critics justified.

Were CP3 believers too quick to put the vet guard into the stratosphere as he appears human on the big stage? Chris still doesn't think this performance puts CP3 out of the top 5 point guard all-time conversation...as long as CP3 walks away with a Larry O'Brien.

On the other hand, Rob Parker maintains that the Suns' squadron were gimmicks from the get-go. While Rob did think Suns would win the series, that was only based on the questionable health of Giannis Antetokounmpo. With Giannis at what appears to be full strength, Parker feels justified in saying that the Sun's run was fugazi since they're finally facing an opponent at full strength.
