Man, if you think Chris Paul, today, is better than Russel Westbrook - I don’t know what to tell you. It’s not even worth debating
Scoring/shooting: Paul >> Westbrook
Rebounding: Westbrook >> Paul
Passing/playmaking: Westbrook > Paul
Defense: Paul >>> Westbrook
Maybe Westbrook would be better on a team lacking a #1 guy and desperate for creation, but next to Harden it’s Paul by a mile.
If you just listed shooting on the first one then yes but you put scoring/shooting.
Westbrook is a much better scorer then Chris Paul.
Per 36 minutes, Westbrook scored 23 PPG on 20 FGA and 6 FTA. Paul scored 18 PPG on 14 FGA and 4 FTA. Do those extra 5 points on 7 possessions really add value? Of course not. If Westbrook cut out some bad shots and changed his game so he was scoring the same points on the same efficiency as Paul he’d be a much better and more valuable player.
