As observed, Paul put on his signature dribbles on display against the young guns. After which, he casually rose up for a seemingly impossible shot over the taller defender — and he drained every single one of them.
Paul, apart from holding basketball camps for young kids, is known to be a mentor to some young NBA players. A practice that he looks to resume now as a member of the Thunder. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is perhaps his most popular mentee. Curry has shared before how Paul helped him adjust to the NBA lifestyle in his first few years in the league. Certainly, Paul’s words has helped Curry a lot.
As such, we can assume that Paul shared some words of wisdom to Giles, Okogie, and White after schooling them one-on-one. Giles and Okogie are incoming second-year players for the Sacramento Kings and the Minnesota Timberwolves, respectively. While White — the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft — will start his professional basketball campaign with the Chicago Bulls. The NBA is the best basketball league in the world. They need all the help they can get.
