Chris Paul doesn't pose the physical threat of LeBron James or Kevin Durant, but don't let his 6'0'' frame fool you. Paul is deadly when he has the pill in his hands. With his ability to score on command while also dishing it when necessary, CP3 has pushed the right buttons throughout the season, leading the Clippers to the third-best record (39-17) in the Western Conference and possibly establishing a new world order in L.A. If the Clippers make it to Finals, David Stern should waive any and all rules, and enshrine CP3 into the Hall immediately, win or lose.
