Paul has been playing on a slow-paced team with absolutely no shooters. Next year he will have 2 shooters enabling him to have space which we haven't seen him play with before. He will explode next year. I think his offensive arsenal is more versatile than Deron's and his defense is underrated. Deron certainly had a great season and playoffs, but I will pick Paul for next year, not to mention the game is in New Orleans.
I know stats aren't everything but the fact that Deron had 5 points less PER last year suggests he didn't really break ahead.
