are you saying that CP3 will be better in 2 years. If not then time makes no difference in the determination. It has nothing to do with accumulated stats over a life time. Just what they could bring in a given year.

Give me Stockton,i didn't have a chance to watch Magic but i have not seen anyone run a team smoother than Stockton,a little dirty(which i like) and he was a pretty underrated clutch performer and incrediblely efficient

Stockton is the better defender and better passer. Didn't look to score, but when he did, he was a high % shooter.

give the nod to Stockton for now.

If you ask me this is kind of an irrelevant comparison because we haven't seen Chris Paul's prime, and trying to look at a 23 year old's body of work and trying to extrapolate that to where he's 27 or 28 is ridiculous.

Im a huge CP3 stand and i cant bring myself to type that hes better then Stockton. Mr. Short Shorts is a legend. Paul still has a ways to go to match his two Finals appearances assist, etc.

Spot on but the OP is insistent on receiving some validation regarding his stance that Paul is the better PG right now.
