He even spotted several players from both teams, including popular 7ft 4 center Boban Marjanovic, and posed for snaps on court with Chris Paul and Devin Booker.

He also shared snaps of his girlfriend Julia Rose, who he has reportedly been dating since 2020. She was pictured wearing one of Paul’s infamous Make Boxing Great Again trucker hats.
Paul, 25, wore a white t-shirt to promote his new gambling venture, Gamblr, which has raised $50 million in funding, while also sporting red shorts and a diamond necklace with his nickname “problem kid,” which reportedly has one is worth an astounding $225,000, according to TMZ.
The former Disney star, who has racked up 20.4 million views on YouTube over the years, surfaced to the NBA game after it was revealed he won six of the eight rounds in an impressive win over Anderson Silva at Glendale on Saturday , just a 17-minute drive from Phoenix.
The youngest of the Paul brothers is now 6-0 after scoring the best win of his brief boxing career.

Paul’s Sunday outing came a day after he defeated Anderson Silva in eight rounds at Glendale
Paul, 25, won the fight by unanimous decision, with the judges scoring the fight 78-73, 78-73, 77-74

And although it was a close and competitive fight that night, multiple judges including Dennis O’Connell, Paul Calderon and Chris Wilson scored the fight 78-73, 78-73, 77-74 for the Cleveland, Ohio native.
All three awarded Paul first, fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth rounds in the eight-round catchweight bout, in the last of which Paul knocked Silva down with a pounding punch.
There was consensus on giving the 5th-dan taekwondo star black belts in the second and fifth rounds, with Calderon Silva also nominated for the third – but all others were settled for his opponent.
Statistics showed that Paul landed 83 of his 336 punches (25 percent) while Silva made 79 of his 251 (31 percent), with Paul making 30 body shots as opposed to Silva’s 13, apparently rewarded for his increased activity versus accuracy.
