Wade can't hit a 3, a basic skill. He can't be in this convo.

I watched Harden and Paul running the same offense, I think it's Harden but if you gave Chris Paul 4 inches of height (since we're ignoring physical attributes) it would be closer to a tie.

CP3 was the more talented prospect. Wear and tear on his body has robbed him of his athleticism. James Harden is, and always has been, more skilled than naturally talented. He just keeps adding and adding. His genius and basketball IQ is his talent.

In a non run/jump yes. Harden's strength, balance and quickness is otherworldly.

Glad to see other people recognize this. Harden's overall athleticism gets underrated so much because of his lack of leaping ability.

Yes, he can't jump high, but his quickness and strength are very elite. Balance is a great mention too.
Harden's start/stop is ridiculous with his size strength.

uh that's not even remotely guaranteed. Those Mavs were hungry from the start to finish of those playoffs. I highly doubt anything would have changed.

Then again with Harden there, they might not even get past Boston.

Yeah - not sure how we're measuring talent but Wade is the best of these 3 so I voted for him. One of the best 2 way players of all time

CP3 is so criminally underrated on this board. Probably because he's an ****. But criminally underrated nevertheless.

I fail to see how comparing him to Wade and Harden underrates him...

Chris Paul will be the biggest impact player and make your whole team elevated more, and the other guys will put up more eye popping #s that will make most people pick one of them.

If it's talent, I think it's Harden.

I agree, but Wade wasnt in his prime anymore post 2010. Also, CP3 is a better fit next to Lebron than Wade.

How? What can CP3 possibly do in a system where the ball is dominated more times than not by Lebron James? CP3 is used to being the one running the offense, so it wouldn't make any sense to put those two on the same team.

Physically talented I'll take Wade. Although Harden is sneaky athletic.

Most skilled player I'll take CP3.
