The 25 Greatest Point Guards in NBA History

14. Chris Paul

Stats: 18.6 PPG 9.8 APG 4.4 RPG 2.4 SPG

He's only been playing for eight seasons, but if you watch CP3 do work, him being on this list is a no brainer. Like most of the guys on this list, he makes players better. Paul put the New Orleans Hornets on his back (check the roster, other than David West and Tyson Chandler, they sucked) and carried them to them to the 2008 Western Conference Semis where they fell in seven to the Spurs.

And when he was traded to the Clippers in 2011, he instantly made them contenders and led them to their first Pacific Division title ever. Paul never makes a mistake it seems. He scores when needed, passes when needed, plays great defense, and has enough heart to go around. Don't let his off-court demeanor fool you, much like Isiah, CP is a killer. At this rate, he'll be top 10 when it's all said and done.
