Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul said he is ready to “get back to work” after losing 105-98 to the Milwaukee Bucks in Tuesday’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
“It will take a while to process this or whatnot, but it’s same mentality,” Paul said after the game. “Get back to work. I ain’t retiring if that’s what you’re asking. That’s out. So, back to work.”
With a player option worth $44.2 million for next season, Paul hinted that he would not be looking for another team.
“Everybody in that locker room knows we had enough, but it wasn’t enough,” said Paul. “So, we got to figure it out. I think for me, I just look at myself and figure out how can I get better, what I could have done more and make sure I come back next season ready to do it again.”
The 36-year-old finished Game 6 with 26 points on 11-for-19 shooting and five assists. However, it was still not enough to force a Game 7, making Tuesday’s game the closest he has ever been to winning an NBA final.
