i d like to see wall with a better crew or at least equal to chris pauls. i dont say they are equal players but the gap isnt huge between wall and cp3.cp3 has better shot but he isnt as good defender as wall.they are equal at driving and passing imo.if i rated from 1-10 both of em i d say cp3 is 9 while wall is 8.that isnt a huge gap.
I'm a Wizards fan and I have to disagree. CP3 is definitely a better defender than Wall, and he has multiple All-Defensive teams to back it up. He's extremely active in the passing lanes and is an annoying pest of an on-ball defender. Wall has great length (6'9 wingspan) and is a terrific shotblocker, but right now he still needs to work on understanding positioning and staying 100% focused on the defensive end. He definitely has the ability to be an elite defender, but like most young stars it's just a matter of consistent effort.
Unlike what a lot of people think, the biggest gap between CP3 and Wall isn't bball IQ or pure PG ability, it's actually scoring. Paul can get any shot whenever he wants, and he does it with crazy efficiency. Scoring efficiency is the least-developed part of Wall's game, he has a lot of work to do before even coming close to Paul in that regard.
I believe that when we're watching Chris Paul, we are watching one of the 2-3 greatest point guards to ever play. When people say Parker, Westbrook etc are comparable to CP3 it's just like.. stop it. People love to talk about Lebron's dominance, but right now the gap between Paul and the 2nd best PG is bigger than the gap between Lebron and Durant. I don't think it's really possible to play the position any better than Paul does. If not for a certain 6'9 freak of nature, public opinion would probably view Chris Paul as the premier point guard in NBA history.
The only thing about him that rubs me the wrong way is.. why does someone that talented, still feel the need to flop all over the floor like a girl. And the refs continue to give him the calls despite knowing his reputationEdited by DT43 - 12/15/13 at 5:29am
