Default Chris Paul or Jason Kidd?

Who would you take to start a franchise?

With Paul you get a 20/10 type of guy who's just as good a floor general as Kidd, with good defense.

With Kidd you get a walking triple double with great defense, and great leadership/intangibles/etc, but inferior in scoring.

Kidd. I know the stat nerds don't like hearing it, but his impact goes way beyond the box score.

I'd take Kidd. Two straight finals appearances, even if you bring up the weak Eastern Conference at the time, is a pretty good feat. I think his vision and passing ability was better than CP3's. Just higher bball IQ in general, and that's saying a lot because CP3 has superior basketball intelligence.

But Kidd, he just had that 'it' factor.

Chris Paul. Better scorer, passer, and just as good of a defender.

I think it's pretty close. I do think CP3 is a superior offensive player while Kidd is a better defensive player and a better intangibles.

Yeah Kidd averaged a triple double for a playoff run, so did Rondo.

CP3 is not a better defender than Kidd, CP3 is generously listed at 6'0 where as Jkidd is a legit 6'3 1/2, 6'4. He was known for his versatility on defense, being able to guard the one and two, sometimes even the 3 position. He played some of the best defense I ever seen on Kobe when he was already old. Kidd had a stronger base, which allowed him to guard stronger guys while still being able to keep up with them on the court. JKidd was also a slightly better passer, he put the ball on the best spot possible for his teammate to score easier most of the time. You're only right about Paul being a better scorer but Paul < Kidd
