Chris Paul is a God!!
I say this because I'm obviously a huge CP3 fan, but also because of what he brings to a team.
We need him way more than we need Melo. This was true when I said it in the summer and IT STILL IS.
The Hornets record thus far is 12-3. That's good for 3rd in the Western Conference behind the Lakers and Spurs
They're 7- 0 at home and 5-3 on the road.
We know who the Lakeshow and the Spurs have; the likes of Kobe and Gasol, Duncan, Parker and Ginobili. We know this, hopefully.
The Hornets have Chris Paul.
That's basically it.
Here is their starting lineup:
T. Ariza @ SF
D. West @ PF
E. Okafor @ C
M. Belinelli @ SG
C. Paul @ PG
The above screams Gladys Night and the Pips to me.
Why are they winning??
Because they have the best PG since Magic Johnson..
I want the Knicks to pair CP3 w Amare and you should too. Why?
Because he is thus far MVP of the League.
Because he averages: PPG16.6 RPG4.80 APG10.3 EFF+ 26.07
Because he also gets 3 steals a game
And, again because he's got his teaming winning = 12-3 record.
What would our record be w Chris Paul running our SSOL, w Amare to catch his oop-passes??
Prolly not 12-4..
Maybe something like 10-6, 11-5, but we'd be on our way.
..And by the end of the year, barring any injury, ready for a deep playoff run.
Felton is starting to show what he can be and as i've said, i like him. Hopefully he can continue this trend. But..
CP3 is on a whole other level. And, he also wants to play here..
Walsh should forgo the Melo pursuit and try to make a deal for CP3.
His addition at the PG position would mean more to this team than the acquisition of Melo at the SF.
And just for edifications sake denver's record is 9-6 right now, not terrible but the two men have comparable rosters.
One of them has his team thriving.
Imagine what he could do for us w STAT.
