Chris Paul after Finals loss: 'Back to work'
Moments after losing his first career NBA Finals appearance, Chris Paul was already looking forward to his next chance at a championship.
"It'll take a while to process this, but it's the same mentality: Get back to work. I ain't retiring if that's what you're asking. That's out. Back to work," the Phoenix Suns floor general said after Tuesday's Game 6 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, according to HoopsHype and USA Today's Michael Scotto.
He added: "Great group of guys, hell of a season. But this is gonna hurt for a while."
Paul, 36, is now the only player in NBA history to lose four playoff series in which his team led 2-0, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
