Chris Paul is ready to continue his NBA career next season after coming two wins short of his first NBA championship. Paul had become arguably the NBA's great player ever to never reach a Finals until he did so with the Phoenix Suns this season.

"It will take a while to process this or whatnot, but it's same mentality," Paul said after the Bucks' 105-98 series clincher. "Get back to work. I ain't retiring, if that's what you're asking. That's out. So, back to work."

Paul had 26 points and five assists in Game 6.

"Right now, you're just trying to figure out what you could have done more," Paul said. "It's tough. Great group of guys, hell of a season, but this one is going to hurt for a while."

Paul has a player option worth $44.2 million for the 21-22 season, which he could decline to sign a longer deal.
