NBA Veteran Andre Iguodala makes a joke about the Chris Paul – Patrick Beverly situation, while others congratulate CP3 for NBA Finals
The Phoenix Suns have done it. After not making it to the playoffs in a decade, the Suns have made the NBA Finals straight in their return. In doing so, they have become the first team ever to not make it to the playoffs for a decade or more, and get to the Finals the next season. After 28 seasons, the Suns have returned to the biggest stage in the NBA.

A big part of the credits goes to Chris Paul and Devin Booker. The star backcourt has been the consistent force guiding them throughout the season and the playoffs. However, tonight was Chris Paul’s night. After scoring just 10 points in the first half, Paul erupted for 31 points, as he finished the night with a game-high 41 points. En route his 41, with around 3 minutes left in the game, Chris Paul said something to Patrick Beverly, which made Beverly turn around and shove Paul to the ground.

Andre Iguodala and NBA Twitter congratulate Chris Paul
While the other NBA stars got busy in congratulating Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala had other plans. He made an elaborate joke, referencing two of the biggest chicken joints in Chicago(Patrick Beverly is a Chicago native.)
They said he told Pat that Harolds was better than Uncle Remus…
