Aside from tonight, not saying Paul is awful. Going back to the reason for the thread, fans on this board still have the live for Paul, and rightfully so, but the consensus for a while now is that Parker isn't in his class. I remember threads just a year or so ago saying that Parker wasn't in even in the top 5. Yet there was still live for Deron Williams too.
I knew somebody would use assists to say Paul was a better distributor, and that's why I said with making the extra pass and whatnot. Paul gets an assist by throwing it to Blake who gets a shot to go. The Spurs are free flowing with Parker leading the way. Parker's assists aren't something to pad the stats, but necessary in the way the Spurs run their offense...if that makes sense. In other words, Parker does a better job of finding people at point blank range wide open.
It seems you are discussing career wise and most people know Paul has had a better career. Tony is playing better this season IMO. They have been playing without Duncan and Ginobli recently and they have still been dominating teams.

When was the last time Paul has showed up in prime time? He will end up top 3 regular season point guards ever, but at this rate, his postseason legacy is a joke. No rings, don't mean everything, but he lets players like Parker make him their bitch when it counts
