both are amazing

deron is bigger and stronger, paul is quicker and more agile. deron is a better man defender, paul is better at defending the lanes. i honestly don't think one is better than the other at all, it just comes down to preference. between the two, i'd rather have williams.

They're both very good players. But hands down imo, Chris Paul is way better and the only one of the two that is an MVP candidate or at least talked about in the mix.

I say its CP3

but consider that Deron is 10-2 head to head
and they had the same stats

there was also an argument that Deron will have better carrer b/c he can play SG at the end of his carrer while CP3 relies on his speed which will go with age

Deron is also a better man to man defender

CP3 by a mile.
while i really like Deron a lot, CP3 is the best PG in the league hands down. no one can lead a team like he does.
the true testiment of a good PG is how he makes the players around him better.
look at what he's done for David West... Peja Stojakovic, even Tyson Chandler.... he's made them so much better than they actually are.
they are a playoff team, and were almost the best team in the west last season.... and who really is on that squad thats actually good? CP3 leads that team and makes them what they are.
remove him from that lineup and they are horrid... remove Deron from Utah's lineup and they are still a very good team.
its quite simple; CP3 is head and shoulders the better PG.

Since Deron has been healthy this season he's been pretty much unstoppable.

7+ 30 point games in a row. Jazz with the longest win streak since 1998.

I don't like smallish guards.

Give me Deron.

No one can lead a team like CP3?

Deron has more career wins and has been further in the playoffs?

I'm a Jazz fan so of course I'm going with Deron. He's a better on the ball defender and I'd rather have him shoot than Paul. I think Paul runs the break better and is quicker but Deron I'd argue is the better all-around player.

Utah can't make the playoffs without Deron. They can live without him for a while, but he's so important to what the team does that if they had him out, for say a month, they'd be 10th in the conference.

they make paul much better as well. don't discredit west's ability to play the pick'n'roll, peja's stroke or tyson's defense. they're all key to the hornets success.

Yup, Willimas makes his teammates better than Paul makes his teammates.

I agree.

Both of them are really good but if I was creating a team I would rather have D Will

It's definitely a close call but DWill is one of the best finishers when it comes to grinding the game out in crunch time.

I'll take the guy that consistently finishes at the end of games over the guy that gives you two steals and a couple more rebounds a game.

I enjoy watching Paul more than Deron, so I voted Paul.
