Chris Paul is the best point guard in the NBA.
Paul is averaging 18.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 8.6 assists per game—he also averages 2.3 steals per game. Aside from how Paul produces on the court, he always finds a way to make his teammates better. Paul is an elite point guard who will likely be enshrined in the Hall of Fame once he hangs up his sneakers.
Paul is a great shooter, an incredible passer, and he has a knack for coming up big when his team needs him the most. Paul has been a Clipper for fewer than 50 games but has sparked more energy out of his teammates than any other player would dream of.
Chris Paul’s Rating: 10/10
Derek Fisher is the worst starting point guard in the NBA.
Fisher is averaging 5.1 points, two rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. Of the 32 games Fisher has started this year he has scored in double digits only five times—he also has failed to score a point in four games. Fisher used to be a half way decent point guard, but now he is just making a fool of himself and his legacy.
Fisher is not a great passer and he is not known for scoring at will, but Fisher comes up big more than Chris Paul ever would when his team needs him, and that will never change.
Unfortunately for Fisher, if he produced more for his team, the Lakers would not be in a situation where he would need to hit those big shots. To speak of Fisher and Paul in the same sentence is insulting for Chris Paul.
Derek Fisher’s Rating: 2.5/10 (And that is being generous)
Winner: Chris Paul, by a landslide.
