We end with the biggest and best superstar that could find himself in free agency this offseason: Chris Paul.
Paul is unquestionably one of the top three point guards in the league, and you could easily make a case for him being No. 1.
His scoring is slightly down. Considering he's still shooting his same high percentage, that has more to do with his team getting better than anything else.
In fact, you could argue that when he's healthy, CP3 is better than ever.
Paul currently leads the league in steals and is second in assists. He also scores more than 16 points a game. This even as Blake Griffin becomes a much more capable scorer and Jamal Crawford lights it up off the bench.
The most important thing, though, is that Paul has the Clippers as the best team in Los Angeles.
When have we ever been able to say that about L.A.'s second franchise?
We all know Chris Paul is going to get paid this offseason. It's just a question of how much, and by whom.
