We can stop calling Chris Paul a leader. He is not.
We can stop comparing the Phoenix point guard to Isiah Thomas. It’s an insult to the all-time great Pistons.
We can refrain from feeling sorry for Paul because David Stern blocked his trade to the Kobe Bryant-led Lakers in 2011. Kobe couldn’t fix what’s wrong with the persistent locker room cancer.
Chris Paul is a problem disguised as a solution.
We know that now after his latest post-season breakdown. His NBA-leading 64-win Phoenix Suns walked out of the playoffs Sunday night in the most embarrassing way possible. The Dallas Mavericks defeated Phoenix 123-90 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Phoenix trailed by 30 points at halftime and by 46 points in the third quarter. Paul didn’t make a bucket until the third quarter of an elimination game. I can’t recall a supposedly great player of all time showing up much smaller in an elimination match, especially on a team considered favorites to win the title.
Phoenix led that series 2-0 before losing four of their last five games, marking the fifth time a Paul-led team had gambled away a 2-0 playoff advantage. It’s a record-breaking standard. Paul is the first NBA player to screw up five different playoff series after leading 2-0. He broke his own record. He was the first to blow four.
I was once among those people who claimed that Paul was the modern day Isiah Thomas. I fell in love with his shiny image and performance in the regular season. I ignored Paul’s numerous critics within the NBA, who swore that Paul’s good-guy image created by State Farm was fraudulent.
CP2-oh ain’t Zeke. Paul is Charlie Brown, the cartoon character who can’t kick a soccer ball. The playoffs are Lucy, the girl who keeps making a fool out of Charlie Brown by pulling the football at the last second.
This Dallas series snapped me out of my Chris Paul fantasy. He’s not a leader. At 37 in his 17th season, he is one of the league’s most immature players. He symbolizes my uneasiness about modern NBA players and culture. Both are filled with feminine energy and emotion. The NBA perfectly reflects the emasculation of black men and our cultural embrace of matriarchal leadership.
As bad as Sunday Game 7 was for Paul, he really exposed himself in Game 4.
With his mother and wife sitting directly behind the Suns’ bench, Paul fouled in just 23 minutes. He only scored five points in a 10-point loss. Shortly after leaving the game on his sixth foul, Paul erupted about a young Mavericks fan patting Paul’s mother on the back to get her attention. Paul’s overreaction prompted security to remove the fan from the arena. The Mavericks then banned the fan from attending any more games in Dallas that season.
After the game, Paul profanely complained that the fan “touched” his mother. The video showed the boy tapping her lightly on the shoulder. Paul said his mother and wife felt unsafe in the arena. It was later revealed that the young fan jokingly offered Paul’s mother a hug.
Of course, the corporate media and blue check Twitter defended Paul’s irrational and emotional response. He defended and protected his wife and mother.
No, he was not. He distracted from his embarrassing appearance. He smeared a young white fan. He called on a social media lynch mob to punish a child for allegedly behaving inappropriately towards his mother and wife.
Chris Paul displayed the kind of racist behavior and mindset that led to Emmett Till’s death in 1955. A white woman and white men exaggerated Till’s behavior, summoned a lynch mob, and punished Till.
The NBA and its players do not want to fight racism. Black players – from Chris Paul to Russell Westbrook to LeBron James – want to capitalize on racism. They want to establish themselves as a protected class of people from others who don’t look like them.
Why would Chris Paul put his mom and wife right behind the Suns’ bench during a road playoff game? It’s arguably the most hostile environment in professional sports. Opposing fans can communicate directly with the visiting team.
Chris Paul knows that. But again, Paul is not a leader. He is a spoiled athlete with high standards. He is a beta male who is afraid to say no to his wife and mother. He believes in matriarchy.
Let me offer another provocative analogy. Paul’s thinking mirrors the thinking of Kenneth Walker, Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend. Taylor was the young woman who was killed while police attempted to serve a drug order at her Louisville home. Claiming police never identified themselves, Walker fired his gun and shot a police officer. Police returned fire, killing Taylor.
Let’s think this through. Walker claimed he believed intruders were trying to break into the apartment. He and Taylor got out of bed. He grabbed his gun. He and Taylor went into the living room of the apartment to see who was at the door.
What man doesn’t tell his wife to back off and seek safety when he thinks trouble is trying to break into their home? A beta male. A believer in matriarchy. Someone with no male leadership qualities.
What man puts his wife in danger?
Chris Paul is Kenneth Walker. Paul threw his mother and wife into a fire. And when it got hot, Paul melted. We shouldn’t be surprised. The NBA is full of Black Beta Males who are run by their emotions. They spend their free time braiding, tying it in a bun, and color-coding it. When they’re not at the beauty salon, they’re walking the arena’s catwalks in the outfit their LGBTQ+ stylists gave them.
Matriarchy rules black culture. You can see it in the NBA. You can see it in Chris Paul. Our leadership model is completely broken. Our highest achievement is victimhood. Paul achieved his goal in Game 4 when a small white child tapped his mother on the shoulder.
Paul gave himself as a victim. The Suns followed his lead.
