The guys at the neighborhood barbershop claim that Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul is arguably the best at his position in the NBA. There’s something about a testosterone filled room with the scent shaving cream and clipper oil that brings out the amateur debater in a man in his moment of pampering.
But let’s put this argument to rest. Paul is the best point guard in the league — no contest. This is not up for debate or an isolated consequence due to an injury of any other premier point guard in the league. Paul is everything James Naismith had in mind when he invented the game. He controls every offensive aspect of the game and has shown that he can do so without dominating the scoring column.
The Clippers are hot. They have won seven out of their last eight, including five straight in which Paul led the team in scoring once with 38 points in a “who’s your daddy statement” to the Washington Wizards‘ explosive guard John Wall and an overtime escape with the Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday night.
Expect more of the same from Paul, as he and his running mates attempt to steal Christmas from the Golden State Warriors. For those that thought Paul was already a bit chippy, imagine the mood he’ll be in when he leaves his family to put a group of young rival wannabees in their place on Christmas. It’s holiday larceny like that that could cost the Warriors a triple-double to the grumpy All-Star.
