VIDEO: Suns star Chris Paul picks apart Bulls defense with vintage behind the back dime
Chris Paul continues to turn back the clock with his amazing play for the Phoenix Suns this season. The 35-year-old floor general, who was recently named an All-Star for the 11th time in his storied career, completely fooled the Chicago Bulls defense with a nifty behind-the-back pass on Friday.
In the first half of the Suns’ road game at United Center, CP3 casually attracted three red shirts as he made his way to the cup. The four-time All-NBA First Team member displayed his spectacular vision, finding a cutting Frank Kaminsky for an easy two. Paul didn’t even have to look as he made the incredible dime.

The Suns, meanwhile, has emerged as strong contenders for the Larry O’Brien trophy this season, thanks in large part to their lethal backcourt of Chris Paul and Devin Booker. The pair have been selected as reserves from the Western Conference in the 2021 NBA All-Star game next month at State Farm Arena.
CP3 has thrown plenty of jaw-dropping dimes such as the one above over the course of his Hall of Fame-worthy career. Still, opposing defenses remain clueless to the magic that Paul performs each time he commands the offense. Prior to Friday’s game versus the Bulls, Paul has been notching 16.7 points, 4.6 boards, 8.6assists and 1.2 steals in 30 games.
