    Everytime i see this guy play he always initiates the contact or purposely bumps into him when hes dribbling and the ref calls foul on the other player...

    Yeah i know its smart for Chris Paul to do this, but it sometimes pisses me off

    sooo.... is it just me? [​IMG]

    Just you.

    Dude is 9 kinds of good.

    As far as your issue is concerned, the only ways an NBA player can play physical and cheat is to be known for flopping (Manu, Vlade, Fisher) or just play dirty(Bowen, Manu). Paul is nowhere close to either of those; he doesn't flop, and he doesn't play dirty, so I've got no problem with how physical heplays.

    I guess it's an advantage of his height. but that fails sometimes during clutch time and they just force a weird shot

    for example right now, armstrong set pick for cp3, and dwight was guarding armstrong at that time, and howard hedges out like how he was suppose to , and whilecp3 dribbles right he just bumps into him and d12 gets called for foul [​IMG], and d12 face is like what can i do? if he keep bumping into me

    CP3 is an amazing talent, but dude is a flopper.

    he's perfected initiating the contact and falling on the floor like the best of them.

    Everyone in the league has little tricks. One thing I always see CP do is cut right in front of someone and then stop short to try to get the guy to run intothe back of him. Especially when he's being pressured in the backcourt. Just one of those things that's kinda annoying.

    Yea those petty body contact fouls where he just grazes the defender are annoying. But that's the state of the NBA.

    Let me know if any of you wouldn't want Chris Paul on your team.

    I'll wait.

    Sam Cassell is the best at this.

    chris paul is one of the biggest floppers in the league. nobody will say anything about it though because he's so well loved.

    #1. No Artest fans should say anything about another player playing dirty. I'm a HUGE Artest fan, but c'mon, you can't have Artest as your avy andthen ay something like 'Chris Paul punched a guy in the nuts once in '05.'

    #2. Y'all are funny with your 'example of Chris Paul flopping' clips. When I said 'he doesn't flop', I didn't mean 'He never,ever, EVER flops. Not ever.' C'mon, man. [​IMG]

    #3. KLJ, I've always hated the rebuttal 'Tell me you wouldn't want him on your team.' [​IMG] I can't stand Manu's flopping, Pierce'sacting, Bowen's crackhead-gangster defense... but I'd love to have Pierce on the Lakers, and wouldn't mind having Manu (I would absolutely NOT wantBowen on the Lakers).

    His flopping is overlooked because of his kick-*$%-edness in so many other aspects.

    Right, but we're talking about a top five player in the league, not Bruce Bowen.

    Yes, he flops A LOT! Like someone above said, he's more well liked than the Raja's, Bowen's, Harris's, and other guys who do it so it goespretty overlooked. And that come off a screen dribble right into the leg of the hedging big man move is *****made. I hate that refs always fall for that.
