Default Chris Paul Wall and a question.

I loved deron williams since college and his playoff performance was great but some people went as far as saying that he's better than chirs. It seems like paul dropped off the radar after the injury and missing the playoffs, he's still better than deron. Who do you think is better now? Who will have a better career? and which one would you want on your team?

Whos better now? Deron Williams

Who will have a better career? Deron Williams

Who would you have on your team? Deron Williams

chris paul will have a career full of injurys!

as for deron williams avg. 25 a game in the west finals against the best team in the NBA no other Pg in the NBA is doing that not Nash not Kidd

you watched the USA scrimage deron was the best Pg out there!! and team blue played like sh*t when he wasn't in the game,not to mention he was quarterbacking that fourth quarter come back and finished with 6 and 13

Don't get me wrong Kidd had some very nice passes in the first half to lebron!! but deron was the best Pg out there


coach K isn't stupid, Deron will be starting by the end of the qualifying tournament!


any other questions?

Can't a Chris Paul thread exist without comparing him to Deron, or a Deron thread without a Paul comparison?

I've always said Deron is better. Deron's has consistently beaten paul since college. Nothing has changed since then.

Deron williams will be learning this summer how to become a better player in the jason Kidd school of PG play

While chris pau(injured yet again) is going to watch deron run team USA's offense from the sidelines

Saying Deron Williams is better than Kidd is going to the other extreme, even for one match.

But I'm still undecided on the two PGs, I'm wondering what if you put Paul on the Jazz and Williams on the Hornets? Would there be any doubt that everybody would think Paul is way better than Williams? I'll be reserving judgement until the Hornets are healthy.

Well isn't that what Deron was doing last summer? Except he wasn't even watching Team USA from the sidelines but watching from home instead. Paul was watching Deron in the playoffs from home this summer but I'm pretty sure that will change next season with a healthy Hornets team.

You're sounding like he's injured all the time or something. His first severe ankle sprain which led to him putting more pressure on the favored foot causing a stress fracture in it (which he played the last 17 or so games of the season on) and you say he's injured "again". I'm glad he gets to rest this summer. Before he had that freak injury (and don't think that Deron's ankle wouldn't be sprained if he landed on a big slugs foot) he had played b-ball for about 4 years (including the summer) straight so there's no doubt he could use the rest.

I just so happened to come here to find this thread and I just so happen to read this article on yesterday. Seems these players are going to be compared plenty.

No, Jason Kidd was the best pg out there. Deron didn't have 13 assists. Not saying that he can't because we all know he's capable of doing so but he wasn't the best pg out there. 9asts and 5 turnovers wouldn't be considered the best point guard out there. He double-dribbled early in the game to turn it over. He'd better get a grasp on those turnovers because the international teams will certainly convert them into points.

Official boxscore...

paul is a better passer, creates more shots for himself and others, handles the ball better, but is always injured.

williams is stronger, healthy, a better shooter, a better defender, on a better team.

take your pick.

Until paul gets a consistent jumpshot, he will just be a better version of TJ Ford. Chris might be the better creator/penetrator but Deron has more balance in his game

I don't know I consider Paul a little more versatile on offense. His jump shot isn't that bad he shoots the 3 better than Deron. Deron has an ownage mid-range game but where Paul might beat everyone in the league is vision while making moves in traffic, which makes up for it IMO. And Paul is very good at taking care of the ball.

Passer and better playmaker? I think not. Chris Paul may have better scoring instincts--and I use the word better very loosely, but there isn't anything Paul does that has a great advantage than Deron, including speed.
