In Episode 39 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast, Chris Paul’s big moment steals the spotlight before diving into all the asterisk talk and “A Quiet Place Part II.”

Welcome, Valley Boyz and Girlz, to a celebratory episode of the Valley of the Suns Podcast!

The Phoenix Suns are returning to the NBA Finals, and in Episode 39, host Gerald Bourguet begins the show by giving Chris Paul his flowers after the best performance of the Point God’s illustrious career. His 41-point closeout effort in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals should never be forgotten, and it’s worth spending some time on all the adversity he went through — in his career and during this year’s postseason run itself — to reach his first Finals in Year 16.

After that, Bourguet addresses the asterisk conversation. While the Suns haven’t won anything yet, all the talk about a potential championship season having an asterisk next to it is disingenuous and flat-out dumb, so the episode takes its time dissecting all those talking points from every possible angle so the asterisk debate can be buried once and for all.

From there, the show dives into the five things bandwagon fans and national media people need to know about this special Suns team, from Devin Booker laying the foundation to Chris Paul’s leadership to which general manager was really responsible for this team’s success (Spoiler Alert: It isn’t Ryan McDonough).

Finally, for the latest G-Rated segment, A Quiet Place Part II proves itself as a worthy sequel to the original, expanding on its unique premise in inventive ways with an incredibly well-done, anxiety-driven horror movie.
