Chris Paul’s trainer says CP3 is at the ’70-yard line in his career’

Rockets, Chris Paul

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul’s trainer and longtime friend, Idan Ravin, says time is of the essence for CP3 right now in terms of winning a championship.

Paul is 33 years old and turns 35 on May 6. The Rockets’ floor general has never played in the NBA Finals.

If his career ended today, Paul would be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but would be on the list of the NBA greats who never won a championship. It’s why these next couple of seasons for the Rockets and Paul are so important.

Ravin hopes Paul can play another five or six years, but admits the nine-time All-Star is getting close to the end.

“Hopefully he has five, six, seven years left,” Ravin told Jordan Ritter Conn of The Ringer. “But maybe he’s at, say, the 70-yard line in his career. You know? Time is of the essence.”

The Rockets signed Paul to a lucrative four-year, $159.7 million maximum contract last summer. Paul is making $35,654,150 this season and will earn a staggering $38,506,482 in 2019-20 and $41,358,814 in 2020-21.

The Rockets were one game away from advancing to the Finals last season. They lost to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Many believe if Paul didn’t hurt his hamstring in the series, Houston would have went to the Finals and won the title.
