Team USA men's basketball is finally looking like themselves after they dominated Iran with a 120-66 point win in the preliminary round, securing the team's first Olympic win in Tokyo. It just so happens that Phoenix Suns' own Devin Booker majorly helped lead the way. Booker, who was a starter during Tuesday's game, was the second-leading scorer with 16 points.
Let’s settle this. The Suns Final 4 finals comes down the 1992-93 team led by Charles Barkley facing the 2020-21 squad featuring the All-Star backcourt of veteran Chris Paul and rising superstar Devin Booker. The ’93 Suns won the “Old School” series in six games over the 1975-76 Suns led by Paul Westphal while Mike D’Antoni’s 2006-07 Suns pushed the ’21 squad to seven games before losing an epic Game 7 in the "New School" series.
Seen this before. Last year, Chris Paul posted a video thanking the Oklahoma City Thunder in what was a rebirth season for the All-Star point guard, but delivered a closing message that was interpreted as a goodbye letter to the franchise after just one season. "I don't know what the future holds, but what I can say is that this team, I think I made some connections and bonds with these guys that'll last a lifetime," Paul said.
