Chris Paul is the best player in the NBA at orchestrating the game.
Other guys — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — are more athletic and can take a game over with their skills, but CP3 is be more of a conductor. He can score, but he wants to control the game mentally and get his teammates involved. The game goes according to his pace.
Which is why he had 20 points and 15 assists in winning the NBA All-Star MVP award.
These are some of Paul’s comments to the media after the game.
