What can I say? Dude's a beast. I'll be rooting for him to break it when the Clippers play the Timberwolves tomorrow.



Paul has now posted a double-double in each of his team's first 11 games to maintain season averages of 19.5 points and 12.6 assists. The Clippers are 7-4 in those games.

Good Luck CP!

I wonder How far will his streak go?

I thought this record only reflected double-doubles of points/assists but not points/rebounds. I could be wrong about this but that's what I thought when the showed the graphic during last night's game

it has to be. I mean, Love broke the record at like 56 or something, so it must be for points/assists. Assists are tougher for an individual to come by than rebounds.

That is very impressive. I thought the kick he took to the head may jeopardize it.

He hasn't played all that well in my opinion, but his passing has still clearly been phenomenal.

Not so much "useless" more so arbitrary.

Right now you have to say CP3 has probably been the best player in the league so far this season. If he stays healthy and the Clips do decent I see the MVP being a 2 way race between him.and George. You gotta throw LBJ in there of course but he hasn't been all that impressive so far this season.

The only reason people aren't impressed is because it's LeBron and they've come to expect it. If anyone else was doing what he's doing and putting up his numbers they'd be front and center in the conversation, not a throw-in.

No other PG is more efficient than Chris Paul. He's going to end up a top 5 PG when it's all said and done.

Well no. There are others (i.e. CP3, Paul George) that are having a better season and would be ahead of lebron at this point for mvp.

But really, what does this mean in the long run?

Not much IMO. Chris Paul has to win. Enough is a enough. If the Clippers don't get to at least the WCF, this season will have been another failure of a chapter in Clippers history. You got the coach, you got the better supporting cast compared to the last 2 years, and you got the 2nd and 3rd best players matured in Blake and Jordan. You have to get it done.

These types of stats mean nothing when you can't win in the postseason. Simple as that. 1st round loss or 2nd round sweep just won't cut it.

Your being super closed minded that team has time and there is no reason to be in that big of a rush.

Iverson never won too but I guess it doesn't count because Iverson played every game like it was his last.
