    Is DeAndre or Chris Paul overrated?

    You always read that DeAndre would be nothing without CP3. When you look at CP3 he always had top finishers in the front court. Chandler which was the same type as DeAndre and David West which was more than servisable offensive player at PF. The question is who needs whom more.

    DeAndre Jordan's value isn't determined by his ability to score.

    Chris "I have never been out of the 2nd round but people on PSD rank me as the best PG of all time the Point GOD" Paul

    deandre is exactly what he is, defend the rim, and rebound, you know what your getting out of both

    i only say chris pauls overrated because of where people on PSD rank him while deandre is properly rated

    and i love chris but thats just insane a player that talented hasnt been able to carry his team into a conference final

    I think they're properly ranked, despite not making much forward progress. Paul could legitimately help LeBron foil the Warriors, and DeAndre one of the best defensive anchors in the NBA. I'd put him a little behind Gobert at this point.

    There you go, overrated as hell, his defense is not impressive.

    Yes to both. They both need each other and without the other around, both shrivel to unthinkable levels of ineptitude. Cp3 becomes like a poor man's felton and DJ becomes Javale Mcgee

    Yes. DeAndre is maybe more over-rated than CP3.

    And it's "Are DeAndre or Chris Paul overrated"

    I wonder how many times CP3 replays that turnover he had in the last minute against OKC in his head.

    That team could of won it all.

    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    Either you're being completely sarcastic? Or you have a serious screw loose? Chris Paul with Emeka Okafor, who couldn't stay healthy long enough to see the floor, managed to lead his team from the depths of obscurity to the seventh seed, before being lost to a season ending knee injury (meniscus tear). If I'm not mistaken, the Hornets would miss the playoffs that year. Then, with Aaron FREAKING Gray as his starting center, he got the team to win 46 wins. He did this in an absolute blood bath of a conference.

    The fact is, Chris Paul is Chris Paul with or without a top rim finisher like Tyson Chandler or DeAndre Jordan. And both Chandler and Jordan are still capable of doing what they do with or without Chris Paul. That's why Chandler's managed similar numbers despite playing with inferior point guard play elsewhere. And last season, with Paul and Griffin out indefinitely for the playoffs, Jordan still put up monster rebounding numbers, whilst scoring on really high percentage shooting.

    Maybe, just maybe, Chris Paul hasn't been out of the second round, because his teams haven't been deep enough. Beyond Paul, Griffin, and Jordan, there's Reddick, who's a good wing shooter, and not much else. And Crawford is a highly overrated player, who brings zero productivity beyond his ability to score points off sheer volume of shots taken. I wouldn't want him on my team.

    +1

    And I'm pretty sure its sarcasm from him. He is normally singing the praises of CP3 and calls him an over-achiever.
