Default Fact or fiction: CP3 is the best PG in the league..

Based on overall play, I say yes and it's not even close anymore...

Agreed, personally only nash is on a similar level offensively, but chris paul is one of the top on ball defenders in the league as well.

I would say not yet overall best. Sometimes he kinda coasts. But he does what it takes to win. Besides the game where he just ran out of gas vs. the Raptors he has been dominant in the 4th quarter on both ends. That back to back where he shut down Nash and Davis in the 4th tells you how good he could become.

Fiction - it's still Nash... and no, chris paul is not one of the best on ball defenders in the league... If i want to win now, I'm still picking Billups over him...

No offense but.........

I really love when people makes this kind of judgments when they don't even watch Nash, Kidd, Davis or Paul regularly but still compare their skills.

I would say No (Fiction), but this kid has a huge future ahead of him if he keeps this up. I guess we can put to rest the CP3 VS Deron debates. CP3 > Deron.

I'd say that Nash and Kidd are still better PGs than CP3. But, they are also nearing the end of their primes.

Edit: Baron and Billups also warrant consideration, but I'd still say CP3 is a Top 5 PG in this league.

yep Nash is still #1 offensively

but Paul overall.

There are two many good point guards.

I watch parts of pretty much every NBA game since I have LP. I never thought Nash was better than Kidd overall but Paul is right now IMO...

Nash is number 1 offensively and is adequate on defense - stop going on reputation... Paul is better than Nash on defense but Nash's offensive talent is quite ahead of Paul...

As Sidney said in "White men cant jump" Nash can definitely pull some crazy @ss **** passes out of his @ss. Not saying the others cant do that but i still think he is #1 offensively while Paul is better overall which I agree with.

In the playoffs, I'd still take Billups and Nash. At this point, though, I'd take Paul over Kidd. CP3 is looking amazing now, but I haven't seen how he'd perform in a playoff series. You'd have to play the same team at least 4 times. That gives room for a lot of adjustments on offense AND defense.

Nash is a better shooter but Paul is just as good on offense,better rebounder and a better defensive player.Jason Kidd is actually the best all around PG but his man d is weak (better than Nash's of course) and he can't shoot.Chris Paul is also the best ball handler of the three.He rarely turns the ball over for the amount of time he has the ball in his hands.
