Chris Paul is still the Point God


Chris Paul is still the most well-rounded, technically sound and excellent point guard. He proved it again on Friday as the Clippers beat the Jazz 111-106 in Salt Lake City.

The Bucks have made a clear statement that they should be feared. Even if they somehow seize up and fall apart in a series loss, something nobody is predicting at this point, consider how damn young they are. We see teams rise and fall out of the Eastern Conference constantly — remember how the Knicks were good for a season, and only that? Remember the Indiana dynasties that fell obsolete so, so quickly? Now, Milwaukee might be doing the same thing to Toronto, who has run in the top of the East for a few seasons now. The Bucks, unlike any of those teams mentioned before, are built to last long into the future.

They have Antetokounmpo, who is 22 years old. They have the emerging Maker, who looks like another score for them. All around them are more young faces, and while this team isn’t near their final form, they have time to develop into that. Antetokounmpo, especially, has no ceiling on how high he can soar. Will he be the league’s best player in five years? There’s honestly a good chance.

But the Bucks don’t need to worry about the future, because right now, they’re here in the present and beating up a team that some called a dark horse finals NBA Jerseys For Sale squad. So far, so good.

Please fear the deer. What started as a catchy slogan has now become a public service announcement. After watching the fate that befell Toronto on Thursday, we really just Orioles Cheap Jerseys don’t want to see anyone else get hurt.
