Again, because the PG being the best player on a championship teams isn't something that happens often. The wing player that is your best scorer is "viewed" as having a greater influence over a team's success.
BOTH are foolish because it is a team sport.
Melo should NOT have won a championship due to the teams he has played on.
CP3 should NOT have won a championship due to the teams he has played on.
So why on earth are we calling them losers? When were they supposed to win a ring?
because they are, by definition, losers
its not even about a ring, this is the second round of the playoffs we're talking about here
the clippers SHOULD have beat the rockets last year
he got outplayed by the other team's pg (westbrook) the year before that
in the nba, 90% of the time if your teams two best players outplay the other teams two best players you win the series
cant be mad at chris paul, hes probably put a lot of thought and effort into padding his advanced stats and making it seem like he contributes to winning but somehow his teams fall short year after year.
