that move wouldnt be a good one
both players need the ball in their hands allot

Chris paul needs to team up with a PF, kind of like nash and amare..
both of those point guards have the ball most of the time

Too many things need to happen for that to happen. CP3 has a much better chance of being paired up with Dwight than a team somehow trading for him and then signing Lebron because ofit.

No, it doesn't make sense to have both of those guys on the floor at the same time. Who's going to run the offense? Do you split it 50/50? You're not getting the maximum worth of either guy if they're not initiating the offense 95% of the time.

Theyre so good and so unselfish they could make it work. Same thing with Rose and Lebron, theres plenty of ball to go around when you have unselfish guys

Its been shown Lebron needs a guy to take the pressure off of him in the halfcourt, he obviously cant do it on his own because the top defences are too good and can dictate what they want to happen vs him in the halfcourt a lot of the time. Add in another primetime player and Lebron gets more freedom and has more energy at games end especially. The ball would be moving with these 2. Just because theyre both primary ballhandlers doesnt mean anything.

Paul and Lebron would be a disaster. If Paul wants a ring he needs to be with someone like Bosh.

not necessarily true, if lebron can make chucking no defense guards look like all-stars (mo williams) then imagine being paired with paul, though it will never happen, these two would be a dream PG/SF combo, with the right coaching the offense for this team will be the closest thing to perfect, as thriller pointed out that both are unselfish yet have the ability to score at will
