i'm taking paul

once nash and kidd retire... he's at the top with deron with ford right behind them.


if you want to win a championship without a jordan type player, you need an extremely solid PG.

Paul has the talent to be a Top 10 all time PG. Now there are a ton of things that could derail that, but he has that rare ability and intangibles. Him and Deron may go down as the best Point guard duo from the same draft ever.

So yeah, I would take Paul over Anthony in a heart beat. Carmelo has great talent, but a poor attitude and limited leadership abilty. Paul is going to make your whole team better...Carmelo will take care of his own stats.

The responses in here are leading me to believe that the whole "post play is more valuable than perimeter play" thing only applies when ISH decides to have a circle jerk over Tim Duncan.

I think Paul will be the #1 PG in the NBA one day, unless Deron can match him, they will definately be the top 2. So I'd pick Paul because if you are building a team, I'd start with a PG, unless it's a really special player like LeBron or Wade.

You're telling me that Deron is a product of his environment instead of being the reason his team is good? I don't by it for a second that Deron isn't a "type of player that make guys much better".
