**90sEra**

**do work son**

until you address the flaws in your own logic, there isn't any point continuing this argument.

based on your logic, bill russell is unequivocally the best player of all time. he has 10 rings and 5 finals MVPs. if you value 3 rings and 1 finals mvp, how can you then argue that "future players have surpassed him statistically in a different era"?

Parker and Paul are both great players but ones a 3 time champ finals MVP and ones not. Paul isn't so far ahead of TP that it overshadows that. Game time fellas let's drop this or continue after the games.

here are some numbers for you to think about:

through their first 9 seasons in the league, (paul is in his 9th year, parker is in his 13th)

paul has played in 51 less games than tony parker.

in that same span, paul scored 383 more points, 511 more rebounds, 2340 more assists, and 850 more steals, granted while playing 51 less games, paul played 385 more minutes.

in that span, tony parker had a PER of 18.3. Chris Paul had a PER of 25.6.

in the playoffs it gets tricky because parker had played in 132 playoff games to chris paul's 50. if you take their per game averages:

parker : 18.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, .9 steals and 2.8 turnovers 48% on 2pta, 29% on 3pta and 70.4% FT PER 16.5.

paul: 20.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 9.6 assists, 2.3 steals, and 3.0 turnovers 50% on 2pta, 39% on 3pta and 81.6% FT PER 25.3.

with all that said, what exactly does tony parker do better than chris paul, other than have the luxury to play on a better team?
