Wake Forest alumnus and current Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul has been named Second Team All-NBA.

This is the ninth time in Paul’s career that he has been named to an All-NBA Team—4 times on the First Team, four on the Second Team, and once on the Third Team.

Chris was also an NBA All-Star this year for the tenth time in his career.

Paul was traded from the Houston Rockets along with several draft picks in exchange for Russell Westbrook in the summer of 2019.

In spite of low expectations for the team, Chris led them to the playoffs and the fifth seed, finishing the regular season with a record of 44-28. The Thunder took the fourth-seeded Rockets to a game 7, and had a chance to win on the last possession.

In his 15th season in the league, Paul averaged 31.5 minutes, 17.6 points, 6.7 assists, 5 rebounds, and 1.6 steals per game. He shot 48.9% from the field, 36.5% from three, and 90.7% from the free throw line. Chris played in 70 of 72 regular season and all 7 playoff games, starting all of them.

In the 7 playoff games, CP3 averaged 37.3 minutes, 21.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.6 steals per game.

Congratulations to Chris Paul on another great season! Go Deacs!
