Lightbulb Chris Paul is Overrated, just a system player ( see what Collison is doing)

Collison is doing the same thing Paul is doing. a backup pg a double double machine, just like Paul was. This just proves how Paul is a system player. All the hornets run is endless amounts of pick and rolls until the defense finally breaks down.

It is an embarressment to the league on how Paul is the consensus #1 PG. when you look at guys like Derrick Rose, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, who clearly are bigger, jump higher, see the court just as well, being looked down upon when in comparison with Paul.

You could like actually watch Paul play, and then make this judgement. Maybe then you might see why hes #1? Nah.

Funny how with other backups he had the best +/- in the league and is still significantly positive with a very talented backup who clearly should be a starter somewhere

Collison is just a great PG, so underrated in college, one of the best in college his last 3 seasons.

His game translates well to NBA but alot of people didn't expect it saying he was too small and would get abused by bigger guards.

These people ignored the fact that other than baron, d-rose, dre, deron and Chauncey there aren't really any relevant big PGs in the league right now to worry about.

And chris paul is a better scorer who can take over a game when it;s needed.. Also his turnovers are LOW.. .. COMPARE HIS ASSTS TO TURNOVER RATIO TO ANY CURRENT PG AND YOU'LL KNOW WHY HE'S GREAT. CP3 ball IQ>>>>>>>> any current PG.

The Hornets don't have any ballhandlers, so the PG position has to carry the load.

We'll see how well this TEAM does (wins and losses) over the next 6 weeks. That will be a better determinant of how important CP3 is to this team.

Don't disrespect CP3 he is already one of the greatest guards to play the game.

Athleticism does not equal skill......it helps players play defense and dunk.

If you are going to make this thread, at least post how many hornet games you have watched the past few years. I would bet this is the first time you have seen them this season.

Second, when Collison sniffs a 20/10/5/3 season with near 50% shooting and while having one of the top a/to ratios in the league, and gets his teams to the postseason, then make this thread.

Third, this doesn't prove that CP is overrated, rather, it proves that Collison is NO JOKE. He's a talented guard who was picked to HELP PAUL so that he doesn't have to play 40 minutes a game. This wasn't a throw away, they wanted a PG and got a talented guy on PURPOSE.

Lebron gets a lot of points and assists because of the system.
Kobe gets a lot of points because of the system.
No one gets anything because of their individual talent.

I love Collison's game.. so much that I feel New Orleans needs to unload Paul to this Pistons so he can get more burn :).
