Now is the time. seize the day. Open your wallet. Take a risk. Swing the fence.
Or sell the team to those who are willing.
We came to this crossroads because Chris Paul was suddenly available on the market, and this is all it takes to end the 1
Paul could become a turning point for Sarver, changing the way all future free agents think about you and your organization. Paul is obviously interested in playing basketball in the Valley, even though he was confused last time.
That night, the Suns fans inspired Paul with great enthusiasm, because Paul was selected to the Western Conference All-Star team, but Devin Booker did not.
Paul will bring many benefits to your team: instant credibility. Elite point guard. A serious upgrade to Ricky Rubio. Strong competitors will not represent teenagers in the locker room. He is a match that will light the match under the leadership of Deandre Ayton. As long as you watch.
There was a time when DeAndre Hopkins and Paul were at the core of Houston’s sports experience. Imagine if they both entered Phoenix in two years.
Paul is also very expensive. He will become the second-highest paid player in the NBA next season and the oldest player in the league. Your financial enthusiasm and business acumen can almost guarantee that you will contribute to a well-known veteran like him in the next two seasons, and this veteran has a long history of injuries and must work hard for him Paid more than 85 million US dollars.
Not only will his salary next season reach about $657,000 per game, but he is likely to miss a lot of time due to various injuries. Paul is 35 years old, and you still remember clearly that Steve Nash began to split at the same age.
You must reconcile this in advance, just like the Cardinal did with Hopkins and his practice habits.
But this is not the time to indulge in fear, frugality or the worst. Paul is a natural leader, which is something your team lacks. His arrival will increase Phoenix’s stakes and platforms, satisfy Devin Booker, and calm his growing wanderlust.
Maybe Paul would rub Booker the wrong way, as Jimmy Butler did to the Timberwolves. But I bet otherwise. I think Booker is thriving in the presence of a superior, and I am grateful that he no longer needs to lead a team alone and perform in the dark and anonymous.
Paul also commemorates the perfect acquisition of the refurbished arena and brand new practice facilities. In 1992, the Suns brought the opening of the American West Stadium and the acquisition of Charles Barkley all the way to the Finals.
Your predecessor is also a home runer and he is waving the fence, even if it means hitting the ball occasionally. This is what you need to provide at this moment.
The owner is ultimately responsible for the large transaction. Jerry Colangelo recruited Randy Johnson. Ken Kendrick initiated the pursuit of Zack Greinke. Now it is your responsibility to deliver Paul at all costs (mostly). If Paul really wants to be here, you can achieve this goal. You must do this.
The sun has real power. Monty Williams (Monty Williams) is an amazing employee. Since mid-March, your team has not lost a game. Now, Paul is in your hands. A playoff team is in sight, and it only requires money.
After all, we have experienced together, only fools listen to the dollar sign.
