Chris Paul (CP3) is being blamed for blowing Game 4 of the NBA Finals because he tripped over what appeared to be nothing in the closing moments of the game, but I believe the Space Jam Monstars may be to blame.
Space Jam: A New Legacy came out today (July 16) and the Monstars have been out and about all week.
Take a look at the footage below of CP3 tripping in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, by what appears to be nothing.
Now, we know from the original Space Jam movie, with the G.O.A.T. Michael Jordan in it, that the Monstars could’ve easily set CP3 up to trip over what appears to be nothing.
Not only did CP3 make a costly turnover at a crucial part of the game when his team was only down by 2 points, but he had a horrible game overall. He was held to 10 points for the full game, and he had 5 turnovers.
The game took place in Milwaukee on Wednesday night (July 14) two days after the “Space Jam: A New Legacy” Los Angeles premiere, which would’ve given the Monstars plenty of time to come to Milwaukee and ruin CP3’s night.
How else do you explain CP3 tripping over air?
The series is now tied 2-2 and headed back to Phoenix, and all eyes will be on CP3. Hopefully, the Monstars won’t be in attendance again.
The sports world was pretty convinced that the Phoenix Suns would win Game 4, and CP3 would be one game closer to winning that elusive NBA Championship that he’s been chasing his whole career. Unfortunately, for CP3 and the Phoenix Suns things didn’t work out that way.

Game 5 is Saturday night (July 17), and CP3 will have a chance to redeem himself at home.
Personally, I can’t wait because with both teams only 2 wins away from a Championship we are going to see what team really wants it.
Who do you think will win the 2021 NBA Finals, the Phoenix Suns or the Milwaukee Bucks?
