Default Games like this is why some folks say Deron > CP3

CP3 is an amazing playmaker but Deron can carry the scoring load easier because he can score consistently in half-court sets. CP3 is at his best on the break..

Also, Deron would be checking Chauncey...

If you replaced Deron Williams with CP3, the Hornets would be a better team.

Dwill is the complete package.

You must not watch a lot of CP3 then because he can definitely score in half court all the time. He has tremendous driving ability. It's just sad that his whole team is god awful to watch and not to mention Byron Scott has the most uncreative offense in the NBA. Notice how everytime Paul gets into the lane 2-3 Nugget players instantly collapse on him. No one on his team can create their own shot except David West but I think he's highly overrated.

Please don't make your judgements like this. We (the Deron fan base) build our base from multiple games and in-depth analysis. Chris Paul having one bad game is not a standard we use to reason Deron's advancement over Paul. For the record though, I still think Chris is better. However, Chauncey is really exploiting his lack of size.

Not when he is getting swarmed like this in the paint. Deron's range doesn't allow teams to do this to him...

I don't think CP3 is having a bad game at all. He's not forcing shots he can't hit and making the right plays for a lot of assists. Denver just has too much firepower..

Who on the Jazz is any better? Milsap? Boozer? Okur?

Apologists going back to the teammates argument. If you watched the Jazz series you'll find that Deron's teammates aren't exactly that good either. Right now I'd take Tyson Chandler over any of the Jazz's front men.

Lol yes the Jazz's players are light years better than NO because most of their players aren't one dimensional. Compare a Jazz's game to a NO's game. Jazz has slashers/cutters in Brewer and AK who can play much better defense than Peja and Butler. Chandler is decent when hes healthy but again he's a product of Chris Paul. Majority of his points come from alley oops. The combination of Millisap and Boozer > David West by far. Also, Jazz's bench>>>>>>> No's bench. NO's bench barely produces any points on the board. I would take Jazz's supporting cast any day of the week over NO's.

yea.. he showed the world he's better than Chris Paul in the Olympics.


Chauncey Billups is still one of the best PG, if not THE best.

the best PG in the league(CP3?), shouldn't get outplayed by such a huge margin by another PG, 2 games in a row.

Oh yeah i forgot about Sean Marks and Hilton Armstrong . They sure strike fear into their opponents. For the record, I think Cp3 is only slightly better than Deron. You can't go wrong with either pt guard.

Deron would get locked down by Billups too so STFU.

During the regular season, the defense on Paul didn't matter because if they went under screens to cut off the lane, he was drilling midrange jumpers and making them pay. Tonight, he just wasn't looking to score and he never got into a rhthym with his shot that he usually makes.
