Suns star Chris Paul reaches legendary feat that not even Michael Jordan, LeBron James achieved

Chris Paul, Suns

Is Chris Paul the best point guard the NBA has ever seen? Well, the Phoenix Suns superstar certainly solidified his case in that claim after reaching a legendary feat that not even the greatest players like Michael Jordan and LeBron James were able to achieve.

On Saturday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, Paul recorded 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists to help lead the Suns to a 113-107 win. In doing so, he also became the first player in NBA history to reach 20,000 points, 10,000 assists and 5,000 rebounds.

Chris Paul entered the contest with 4997 rebounds to his name, so the feat wasn’t exactly surprising. However, it is still nothing short of amazing given how he was able to pile up such numbers throughout his career.

Already considered one of the best playmakers of his generation, CP3 just showed why he is also a complete and all-around player.

The most common knock on Paul’s career is his failure to win a championship. He did reach the NBA Finals for the first time in 2020-21, but Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks prevented him from reaching the pinnacle.

Despite that, though, the so-called Point God has proven time and time again that he is one of the most impactful players ever. His leadership has been particularly put into focus after leading the Oklahoma City Thunder (2019-20) and the Suns (2020-21) to the playoffs.

With the way Paul and the Suns are playing this year–having won 16 straight games–it won’t be a surprise anymore if the 36-year-old point guard break more records this campaign.
