Eerily, an old State Farm commercial starring Chris Paul predicted the Phoenix Suns’ loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2021 NBA Finals.
After 16 long years, for the first time in his glorious career, Chris Paul had reached the biggest stage of the NBA- the Finals. Despite having a great performance, CP3 and his Phoenix Suns fell to the Milwaukee Bucks blowing a 2-0 lead, eventually losing to Giannis Antetokounmpo and co. 4-2.
This finals loss came as a shock to several Phoenix fans and players as well, who looked to be well in charge of the series initially. However, an old State Farm commercial kind of predicted Chris and the Suns’ loss to the Bucks in these finals.
An avid NBA fan knows that Chris Paul has been one of the spokesman for the insurance company – State Farm for quite some time now. Since 2012, the “Point God” has featured in quite a few commercials. However, there was one old commercial in particular, which mysteriously had foreseen the 2021 NBA Finals result.
A 2019 State Farm starring Chris Paul predicted the Suns’ fall to the Bucks in the 2021 NBA Finals
In a 2019 commercial, starring Phoenix Suns star Chris Paul and actor Oscar Nunez, a Buck entered Chris’ garage and completely destroyed it. Cut to two years later, when Milwaukee and Phoenix met in the NBA Finals, the Bucks destroyed CP3 and the Suns to win the NBA championship. Take a look at that ad.
NBA fans were quick enough to react to this “prophecy” which led to Chris Paul and his Suns losing the finals.

No doubt, the similarities are way too uncanny and spooky to a certain level. However, for the 36-year-old Paul, he hasn’t given any signs of hanging his boots just yet. And knowing the fierce competitor he is, he will be aiming to win his long-desired championship each and every year he plays in the league.
