Chris Paul Is The Best Point Guard In The NBA

Chris Paul is the best point guard in the NBA. I could tell you, it’s the way he plays, how he finds his teammates and how he leads the Clippers every night but i’m going to tell you with statistics from this season. Yes, the season is just beginning but if you watch a second of ESPN you’ve probably seen a lot of CP3.

For starters, tonight Chris Paul broke Magic Johnson’s record of 11 straight games of 10+ points and 10+ assists. Chris pushed that streak to 12 straight games and will continue the streak tomorrow night against the Thunder.

I’m going to name in my opinion the top 5 point guards, #1 Chris Paul, #2 Tony Parker, #3 Russel Westbrook, #4 Derrick Rose and #5 Kyrie Irving. We can start with season averages first and break it down from there using stats.nba.com.

Chris Paul:             19.5 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 12.6 APG, 26.84 PER

Tony Parker:            18.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 6.2 APG, 20.49 PER

Russel Westbrook: 22.8 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 5.1 APG, 18.89 PER

Derrick Rose:          15 PPG, 2.9 RPG, 4.5 APG, 9.33 PER

Kyrie Irving:              21.3 PPG, 4 RPG, 7 APG, 17.68 PER

 

Paul is ranked in the top 3 in points, the top 2 in rebounds and ranked first in assists and player efficiency ratings. Chris Paul is so efficient. it is the main reason I believe he is the best point guard.

Chris Paul has 103.9 touches per game, compared to the other 4 guards the closest is Kyrie Irving with 84.3 touches per game. Chris Paul also has a total of 139 assists compared to Kyrie Irving at 77 assists. Paul has a total of 21.7 assists opportunities per game compared to Tony Parker at 13.3 assists opportunities per game. Lastly Chris Paul creates 28.6 points per game off of his assists compared to Kyrie Irving at 15.8. As you can see Chris Paul leads all of those categories by a huge margin. Also Derrick Rose and Russel Westbrook, who are mainly scorers, were not second in any of the categories.

Chris Paul has the highest player efficiency rating among point guards in the league, despite having the ball in his hands more than any other point guard in the NBA. A player with the ball that much should not be that efficient, unless they truly are the best at what they do. And in my opinion Chris Paul truly is the best.
