The Phoenix Suns are doing quite well so far this season and the chances of them returning to the NBA Finals after a year away are quite high.
Of course, Chris Paul is also part of the team’s strong lineup.
But the man that many call the “point god” is lacking right now.
Chris Paul is having the worst shooting start to a season of his career this year.
Through seven games, he’s averaging:

Paul is having the worst shooting start to a season of his career right now.
Through the first seven games, his average is 10.1 points on a 35.9% field goal percentage and 23.1% from the three-point line.
Paul’s second-worst start through seven games was in 2018-19, when he shot 39.6% from the field.
Is time catching up with Paul or is he just off to a rocky start?
The good news for Paul right now is that there is still obviously plenty of time left in the season.
Therefore, he can still turn things around and become the legitimately terrific point guard that he usually is.
Since the start of the season, fans have seen Paul focusing a lot more on assists than shooting.
He is currently delivering 11 assists a game and is the league leader in that department.
This is his highest assist number in years and it shows that he knows his shooting percentage has dropped.
But instead of just throwing up his hands and sitting on the bench, Paul is attempting to help his team in other ways.
If he can keep up that number of assists – and improve his shooting – the godly view of Paul will return.
