Chris Paul having a higher rating doesn't necessarily mean he's better on the NBA 2k8 developers' part. It's just because he has more well-rounded stats so the ratings spread are higher. That's why it's difficult to get Dirk a 90 (or higher) since he has little to show outside the realm of scoring and rebounding now that his blocks and steals have regressed.
Then how come a guy like Dwight Howard gets 91? I was really amazed byt hat.
That's an interesting point, but not impossible if you think about it. I can see him getting 95+ on both rebounding categories, blocks, defensive awareness, inside scoring, layups and dunking which is good enough for 90.

People also shouldn't compare across positions. Certain stats increase a player's overall rating at certain positions. Like a 99 post offense/defense rating won't do much for a PG, but it'll do wonders for a big guy's rating.
