Magic's '87 season is inarguably better than CP3's season. Absolutely inarguably. Most of Magic's seasons are arguably better and that's not a stab at CP3 who is a great talent in his own right, but you said arguably the GREATEST season for a PG. And that's just not true imo

BTW, i'm going to go with Paul. But McGrady has a case, let's not act like he doesn't. It's very close.

People are forgetting how great T-Mac was in '03. This was a guy putting up 32/7/6 on 45%+ from the field and just under 39% from downtown. He also had a surprisingly low turnover rate and was very consistent. Also don't forget very few players on that team played for Orlando the entire season. Chris Paul at least had Tyson Chandler, David West, and Peja Stojakovic. McGrady had Pat Garrity, Jacques Vaughn, Darrell Armstrong, and 300+ pound Shawn Kemp.

In my eyes, there is Jordan, Kobe, and T-Mac.

Then there is the rest.

That's how good prime T-Mac was.

No point guard has ever put together the season that Paul did that year.Other players have managed to put up 20+ points and 10+ assists per game, but very few of them scored as efficiently as Paul did; the ones who did rival him in scoring efficiency, turned ball over more than he did. None of them come close to getting as many steals.

Silkk's avatar is hilarious.

And, it's hilarious how unwilling he is to mention anything positive about TMac's game. I'm almost convinced TMac is the worst thing to ever happen to basketball when I read his thoughts about him.
