Suns’ Chris Paul ‘not taking it for granted’ chance to play with Kevin Durant

Phoenix Suns star point guard Chris Paul is in the backend end of his sure-fire Hall of Fame career still aiming to earn his first NBA title.

Those chances of securing that lofty goal received a significant boost after the Suns acquired Kevin Durant before this month’s trade deadline. It lays before Phoenix the potential opportunity to compete for a championship, which Paul isn’t taking for granted.

“It’s different,” Paul told ESPN on Wednesday. “It’s taken some getting used to. I was telling [Devin Booker] the other day, I played with a lot of great players — I got a chance to play with Blake [Griffin], I got a chance to play with David West early in my career, I played with James [Harden] — [but] probably never two guys of this caliber, as far as Devin and KD. … I know I’m not taking it for granted, I told [Booker] not to.”

Although Durant is dealing with an MCL injury to his right knee, he’s still playing at an elite level as one of the game’s best talents. He remains among the top scorers that will only elevate to another level alongside Paul and Devin Booker.

It marks the first time in Durant’s career that he will get to play alongside a pure point guard of Paul’s caliber. The Suns have the star power in place to move up the standings and make a strong push toward NBA title contention.
