With Chris Paul in the COVID-19 protocol and his playing status uncertain, the Suns may rely on Cameron Payne even more. Judging from the past several months, Payne will be ready. “I’ve found my niche on a great team,” Payne said. “I just want to keep pushing that forward. You’ve got to be humble and stay hungry. Because you can be out of this league in a heartbeat and I don’t want that to happen again.”
Payne said he’s leaned on the support from his family during the tough times and they’re a constant presence in the stands at Phoenix Suns Arena. They’re enjoying the guard’s resurgence and playoff run just as much as Payne. “When you’re in a marriage that works, it’s just awesome,” Payne’s dad Tony said. “Phoenix is good for him, and he’s good for Phoenix. The style of play really fits, they allow him to be up tempo, he sees the floor real well. Phoenix plays a wide open style and allows him to shoot the 3.”
