I'm confused. Not sure if you're for or against CP3...

His best 5 games are his last 5 games. The fact that this coincides pretty closely with the removal of his knee brace is enough to suggest he is back.

You realize that at the time he said that, Hornets were owned by the stingiest owner in the league. They had a GM/Coach with no coaching experienced and the leanest front office in the league. Their scouting department was 2 brothers who didn't travel. Even though they still don't have an owner they are now a legit organization. He likes the new GM and has recently said Monty is the best coach in the league. He's not really dying to get out like people make him out to be. Resigning isn't out of the realm of possibility.

You've mentioned this before. We'll see. I still see a New Orleans with an extremely weak supporting cast. And I'm saying this more because I think it will happen than I want it to happen. I'm still not sure getting Chris Paul would be the best move for this team considering we would have a hard time also adding a decent center.

CP3 never stopped being the best PG in my book. Thats the point. People soured on him for silly reasons and will be back in his corner. I better not see you doing that either. You can keep bringing up this physical peak all gone awww all all gone. Yet I see a PG still being able to do great things. Maybe you're butt hurt he cant do greater (whatever that may be, like avg 4-5 more ppg?) things. I'll appreciate the fact that this dude is still productive across the board leading a team that has who again? Run me those All star studs? Sorry CP3 cant rise like Derrick Rose or Russell Westbrook. Still aint putting either over him. Regardless of your physical peak all gone argument you repeatedly spew out anytime CP3 is mentioned. Pucker up.

get back to me when he wins an MVP award and are cruising to become the first seed in their conference. Looks like Rose is going to have a better resume than paul by the end of this season... already...

How? People act like athleticism and size are the only things that can't be taught. I'm sure I can take any guy with Steve Nash's size and athleticism and just get him to playmake like Nash with some practice.

CP3 is certainly one of the top pg's in the game. He is a true pg who can get others involved and run a team. His knee injuries have slowed him down somewhat, but he is still one of the most productive points in the game. He is in the playoff run with a very poor personnel team. Pg's nowadays are not the point guards of old. Moreso combo scoring guards.

As much as I like his game, I would take Deron Williams bc Deron is a bigger pg, can be more physical, and he is a team leader. He can get others involved while carrying a scoring load. Not that Paul can't do these things, I just like bigger point guards. And Dwill is leading the Nets and having success. he hasnt found his shot yet but he is making those guys better
