Did State Farm commercial predict Chris Paul’s loss to Bucks in NBA Finals?


Things are not going surprisingly great for Chris Paul.

The Suns point guard, playing in his first NBA Finals, bowed out Tuesday to champion Milwaukee, which got an incredible Game 6 outing from Giannis Antetokounmpo (50 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks). Conversely, Paul finished the game with 26 points, five assists and two rebounds and was minus-8.

The fact that Phoenix once held a 2-0 series lead made Milwaukee’s comeback all the more painful. In fact, the Bucks became just the third NBA team to win a Finals after going down two games to none (the 1976-77 Trail Blazers and 2006-07 Heat were the others). But a 2019 State Farm commercial featuring Paul as a spokesman — one in which a full-grown buck deer destroys his car and garage — may have provided an early prediction for the outcome of the 2021 NBA Finals:

To make matters worse, fans watching the ABC telecast of the Finals on Tuesday got to see another State Farm commercial featuring Paul. Just a little insult to injury.

Paul’s going to need to file a significant claim to recover from that.
