Default Who's going to have a better season: Chris Paul or Deron Williams?

Who will have a better overall season between these two budding superstar point guards?

Depends on their teams.
Paul was having a good year till half his team went down with injuries.
Both of them are PGs, and after all, a big part of a PG success relies on his teammates.

Chris Paul will continue to woo people with stats on a struggling team while Deron will continue to be the focal point of a contender.

So I guess it depends on how you define success.

I'll go with Chris Paul.

I'm still not 100% sold on Deron... but we'll see after a few opening games this season.

Williams. He's as good as or better than Paul at every aspect of the game. Especially defense.

Good thread...

This is a good question, it will be tight,

Deron is a proven winner already, he should be around 20/10 this season with a similar team record as last season...

however, if the hornets can maintain a healthy team of Paul / MoPete / Peja / West / Chandler they should make some sort of a splash, and Paul will be mostly responsible for that. I think Paul mite be around 18/9 with 2 steals, and i beleive he will be a better and more valuable player then deron in this upcoming season...

Playing passing lanes for steals is neat and all but Paul's no stopper one-on-one. His size makes him easy to shoot over and a target for point guards that want to post their man up. Meanwhile Williams is as big as anyone playing the position. He's going to be an All-NBA defender one day.

Agreed. Though I favor Deron on this one. This past year Deron has made clutch shots in the playoffs, played with team USA, and had Kidd take him under his wing. Nothing but growth from him.

Not to take away to CP3 -- playing on a struggling team can be one of the biggest seeds to big growth; they're both great point guards, but I'll give the edge to Deron.

Deron Williams

Better Shooter: Check
Winning Experience: Check
Better Defender: Check
Confidence to Dominate: Check
Handles: Check
Passing: Check
Court Vision: Check

He has everything CP3 has, but he can do more. Which is the bottom line. Plus he's a more disciplines player. He'll have a better season. He will also by my accounts be an All-Star this year.

I like Chris Paul more than Deron Williams.

But i'll go for deron williams,

deron is a great player and with that is his confidence that is now higher than ever(because of the great run that the jazz made last season).

but also depends on their teammates.
