MVP Breakdown – Chris Paul

CP3 – The Best Little PG Since Zeke

Chris Paul may be more deserving of this year’s MVP award than Kobe or LeBron. He has his team in 1st place in the Western Conference and the Hornets are definitely going to be in the Playoffs for the first time in 4 years. He was voted as a reserve on the Western Conference All Star team this year and he’s led his team to a winning record every month of the season (only 2 losses in January). So far he’s leading the league in steals (2.71) and he’s second in the league in assists (11.2) barely trailing Steve Nash (11.3). He is only one of three athletes on the Jordan Brand with his own signature shoe and he’s on the cover of my favorite basketball video game – NBA 2K8. Not bad for a guy who came into the league 3 years ago and was “homeless” before he even played his first game in his new city.

He’s improved his scoring and assist average every year he’s been in the league and on St. Patrick’s Day this year he hung 37 points, 13 assists, and 3 steals in a 4th quarter comeback win against guess who? Yep, the Chicago Bulls! In the land of giants which is the NBA, Chris Paul is standing taller than everyone. He’s carrying the entire organization and the City of New Orleans on his back (sorry Reggie Bush). Just like big men, true point guards are almost extinct and very hard to find. I know that I had a lot to say about the other two MVP candidates, but in the case of Chris Paul…less is definitely more.
