Question LeBron or Chris Paul?

Who do you think is the better overall player?
I would say CP3.

I would say lebron.

Because he has a strength advantage, he scores more points and he lead a talentless Cleveland cavaliers to the finals, when chris paul has a better supporting cast and the good thing that chris paul does is he makes his team better, but lebron can score 30 and also rack up 10 assists when he has a much worse of a team.

I say CP3 simply because he can honestly score anytime he wants but he chooses to set up his teammates like a Magic Johnson, CP3 is also a better defender, although the steals don't tell the entire story but he gets pretty much legit steals unlike reading passing lanes like Iverson, Also CP3 Is much more deadly on offense with his jumper and his attacking ability.

Chris Paul would be the GOAT if he had Lebron's physique.

Well, He always thinks that Yao Ming is the next Hakeem Olajuwon, and I predict he is going to start a LeBron is not a Point Forward Thread.

LeBron had one of the best statsline in the history of the NBA since 1988 Michael Jordan, and Oscar Robertson back in the 1960's.

He is improving his jumper every year, and he is also a very underrated defender in the NBA.

He already led his team in the NBA Finals after defeating the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals, and i think he is only one of 2 NBA players that are capable of surpassing/breaking Kareem Abdul Jabbar's NBA All time Scoring Record.


Some LeBron James Facts


Quote:
- According to the Elias Sports Bureau, since the league began tracking steals and blocks in the 1973-74 season, no player has averaged at least 30 points, 7.9 boards, 7 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks per game in a season with a minimum of 70 games played.


-Even if you take away the steals requirement, no other in that span equaled James' numbers this year. His ability to score, see the floor and block shots makes him one of the NBA's all-time rare talents.

Take away the blocked shots, and the list remains exceedingly short: James and Michael Jordan, who averaged 32.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 2.9 steals in the 1988-89 season (he fell short only in blocked shots, at 0.8 per game).

LeBron among the greats

Only three players in NBA history have averaged at least 30 points, seven rebounds and seven assists per game in a season with a minimum of 70 games played: Michael Jordan (once), Oscar Robertson (five times) and LeBron James this season.

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baske...rs-table_N.htm

I think LeBron has the chance to become the 2nd NBA player to average a Triple Double in the regular season.
