Chris Paul shoots the deep corner three and starts strolling away saying “let me get that money, fellas.” Paul is talking to teammates Steven Adams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
It’s a mic drop for Chris Paul who shoots the off-court corner three and starts strolling away saying “let me get that money, fellas.” Paul is talking to teammates Steven Adams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander after betting the two $100 that he would knock it down. Everybody in the conversation makes tens of millions in salary, but the c-note is a pride thing. And Paul delivers (after bricking the first one!)
“Appreciate you,” Paul adds, smiling and pointing. OKC fans are pumped about the chemistry. Paul landed in OKC unexpectedly, and there was early speculation that he didn’t wan to be there. Since then, he’s talked about appreciating the opportunity.
Fans focused on the team chemistry demonstrated in the moment. “Good to see they have good chemistry,” wrote one. Another fan pointed out “it’s dope to see him having fun with his new teammates.” OKC fans are hoping that chemistry translates into victories. And deep down Paul certainly wants to prove he’s got lots in the tank and that he can lead a winner.
