Facing the media camera, Paul said this sentence calmly.
This is completely different from last year's offseason, when people say "Paul is not worth 40 million"; this year's offseason, many teams tried to trade Paul to complete reinforcements.
All this is closely related to his personal performance.
In the regular season, when all the expert reporters believed that "the Thunder is a bad team and it is impossible to make the playoffs", the Thunder successfully passed the game with a fourth place in the regular season.
In the playoffs, Gunge played 37 minutes per game, scoring 21.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
Everyone discovered then, what is age for superstars?
Even if he is old, he is still one of the most reliable players in the league.
In the tiebreaker game, he regretted losing. Paul confessed to the Thunder: "Sometimes you will only fight side by side with some people for 1-2 years, but you can build a lifelong friendship. Unfortunately, the season ended so early, but Oklahoma Horse, will always occupy a special place in my heart."
Such affectionate confessions mostly appear at the moment when the two sides are about to break up.
Also right, today's Thunder is waiting to be thriving, it is a good time to rebuild, and if Brother Pao can use this to trade to a strong team, he might be able to burn out the last trace of strength and fulfill his dream of championship.
Seeking a deal is the best result for both parties.
There are two teams showing strong interest in Paul, one is the New York Knicks, and the other is the Milwaukee Bucks.
Objectively speaking, the Bucks are clearly the one that is more suitable for Paul.
They have two MVP players Giannis Antetokounmpo, and they have the league's first team in the regular season. These young people have all the potential to become a super strong team. They only need an experienced senior to solve their problems in the game. When the team fell into crisis, stood up and reversed the decline.
A source declared: "Paul is 35 years old and he wants to win. At this stage of his career, he will be very happy to play for a team like the Bucks."
As expected, the 35-year-old Paul has extremely rich experience and lacks the indomitable drive to smash to the end. It just so happens that the Bucks team is full of this young heroic spirit.
Imagine if this year's playoffs against the Heat, Antetokounmpo is still standing behind Paul, can their defense continue so efficiently?
When Paul killed his opponent with precise long shots time and time again, and used a scalpel-like precision pass to cut the opponent's defense line, Antetokounmpo was able to do whatever he wanted in the opponent's penalty area without restraint.
The Bucks need players like Paul, and Paul also needs to join a team like the Bucks to attack the championship at the end of his career.
As for the details of the transaction, it depends on how the two parties negotiate.
Paul gave his youth to the Hornets, left his peak in the Clippers, and gave the final stubbornness to the Thunder. The next step is to give his life a dream and give it a go.
Three parties are happy for a transaction. In that case, give it a try.
