Winner: Chris Paul, Clutch God

What Paul did to Memphis last night, making four of his last five shots,(The only miss was a heave to beat the shot clock after a jump ball.), should be illegal. (So should some of the nutty shots Jamal Crawford made over Jerryd Bayless in the first half, actually.) Paul did this to the Grizzlies in the 2012 playoffs, and this regular season he shot 16-of-33 (48.5 percent) in the last three minutes of games in which the scoring margin was three points or less. Among 66 players who attempted at least 20 such shots, only nine shot a better percentage than Paul, and only one of those (Al Jefferson) did so on as many attempts. The concept of "clutch" is notoriously finicky; a team that comes out as "clutch" under one set of time-and-score parameters might appear mediocre or downright chokey if you play around with the factors. A player who scores in crunch time one season might toss up bricks the next. But Paul has been a consistently above-average clutch player, and his teams have almost annually scored at ridiculously efficient rates, especially given that league-wide efficiency tends to drop on crunch-time possessions. What a player.

re: Chris Paul, the choke artist


I wouldn't put gm 6 vs LA on him

The two wins in that series were because of him

As I said before the only failure I would put at his feet is gm 7 vs spurs

I'll go to my grave believing the hornets were the better team

And I'm not really a fan if the guy b/c of the way it ended here

But he's not a chock artist by any means, foolish statement and probably filled with bias

Oh, but lebron got shite for not winning a title in fricking cleveland. CP is really good just not a winner.


Has anyone called CP the GOAT? Does he have a tattoo on his back claiming to be the "CHOSEN 1"

Honestly, would a wizards fan know what good playoff basketba is?



this is rich coming from a Pelicans fan.

And no this isn't a troll post, I'm dead serious. Every other superstar in the world gets shite for their postseason failures until they win the big one, but I never see Chris Paul thrown around in the conversation.
