I’ve always liked Chris Paul.
Completely get that KD will miss a set length of gms. Still cant put him at No 8. CP3, Anthony Davis, KLove & Russ all routinely miss games
Best All-Time Handles: 1. Kenny Anderson 2. CP3 3. AI 4. Rafer 5. Zeke 6. J-Will 7. Hardaway
Chris Paul and Tony Parker were really good by age 20. For Nash, it took until he was 26.
Kyrie and Crawford embarrass people. But CP3 has 2nd best handle I've ever seen.

Halftime: Suns 61, Clippers 58. CP3 has 18 pts on 7-for-10 shooting, including 4-for-6 from 3-pt line. Blake Griffin has 16 pts.
CP just crossed up Bledsoe, got to the rim and just snuck in a layup before Bledsoe could block it from behind.
Wow, resting last night really worked for CP3. He's having an excellent game so far tonight.
It's cool to watch CP3 and Sam Cassell chit chat on the bench. Lots of great knowledge there.
After one quarter: Suns 33, Clippers 28. CP3 has 14 pts on 5-for-7 shooting, including 4-for-5 from beyond the 3-point line
Bledsoe had a great scoreless 1st half last night but tonight he's matching his tutor (Chris Paul) point for point. Each has 14 in the 1Q.
Chris Paul is a perfect 4/4 from 3FG to start the game.
Blake Griffin and Chris Paul will both play tonight. Farmar (back) and Davis (groin) are out tonight. Ballmer is here (and available).
