9. Suns: Chris Paul and Devin Booker

The Phoenix Suns are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the West. Their supporting cast alone is one of the best in the NBA. Having Deandre Ayton as your third star is so underrated. Despite being underutilized, it’s clear when allowed to do more on offense, he can be a 20 and 10 center.

The Suns also have the likes of Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, and Cam Johnson all of who are elite 3-and-D wings. This supporting cast makes the duo of Devin Booker and Chris Paul one of the most efficient in the NBA.

“Paul has been called ‘the point god’ for good reason.”

Booker is one of the disciples of Kobe Bryant and his game closely emulates the Hall of Famer’s on offense. Booker’s skilled enough to play either guard position as he did so last season and in years past. Booker is arguably a top-10 player in the NBA.

Paul has been called “the point god” for good reason. He’s been the best or second-best point guard in the NBA for the majority of his career. By the end of his career, he’s going to be a top-5  point guard of all-time.
