Hornets All-Star guard Chris Paul has been surpassing records and milestones as fast as autumnal leaves fall, and each time he collects a steal in the next 12 games, he draws closer to the NBA mark for thefts in consecutive games.

The record is held by former San Antonio Spurs guard Alvin Robertson, who had 105 consecutive games with a steal from Nov. 6, 1985, to Dec. 29, 1986. Paul ranks second with at least one steal in 93 games in a row. He passed Michael Jordan (77) in the final weeks of last season, and looks to build on the streak in tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings at the New Orleans Arena.

Always thought he was really overrated defensively, but this is pretty impressive nonetheless.

Alvin Robertson was the starting SG on my All-Time Redraft team that won the championship. Thanks Alvin, I hope your record stays intact. :up:

Hes overrated defensively because hes not an All-League caliber defender.

He may hold the record, but Alvin Robertson will always be 100x the defender Paul is.

^^ o0o0o but ur statement about that alvin guy being 100X better is Ignorant, cp3 will get better at defense with a lil more age like 25-27

Name one star player who was a bad defender at 23 that became a great defender at 25-27.

steals don't mean you're a good defender. just that you can play the passing lanes well. same for blocks. it's usually just coming from the weakside. there's really no accurate stat for measuring defensive success.

^^ I kno but cp3 is still an average defender

Paul is agressive defensively but this is where his height is a factor, he has a hard time guarding the 3 which is a flaw that needs help. He is not a bad defender at all though and I will agree not a first or second team defensive player in the league. Paul should get the record and I wonder how long his streak will go.

... where did I mention Chalmers? Who by the way is a pretty good man to man defender.

He relies alot on his speed to get these steals. I'm pretty sure as an athlete gets older he loses athleticism, and doesn't gain it.
Your man love is undeniable.
He's a gambler on defense.
Deron Williams is better defensively, I saw Dwyane Wade (I'm a Heat fan) get shut down by Deron Williams. Do you think Paul can lock down Wade? With his little frame?

good for him but whatever he still needs 12 more games so maybe u shouldve have waited until he actually broke the record

Wade cant defend Paul either though
