I would not have guessed Paul was the only guy to do that. Impressive stuff.

John Stockton and Oscar Robertson were super close. Stockton was 289 points short, Robertson needed just 113 assists to make the cut.

Two things. Passing way more aggressively than any year I can remember. And he’s back to ball hawking on defense. His speed on breaking on the ball and his effort at the point of attack is far higher than last year.


I think having just .7 steals per game in the finals made him refocus on this. Shows how much in game ability is learned. It can be unlearned like his past two years.

Much better player than the past two years because of all this. I don’t think he was anything special in OKC or last year. I actually prefer in “bad year” in Houston because he could still play good defense then.

He’s barely not a top 10 kind of player so far IMO.

Just in a defensive rhythm.

Thybulle is my point of attack GOAT, but just look at this:

7 steals, 1 block, and this. I’ve never seen him with hands this good. Even in LAC, he was using his speed to make pick sixes. This is just flat out taking the basketball on literally the first dribble of the first dribble move, at will.

It’s about as insane as Curry running around catching and draining 3’s from every angle. It’s cheat code ish.

This was a 10+ deflections game. Absolutely insane.

Some of it is his confidence in McGee's defense IMO which has him helping more or playing up on people with less fear of blow bys, then when they do get by he can poke it away.

It is absolutely remarkable how much longevity Chris Paul has. This is his age 36 season and he has posted .250 WS/48, 5.7 BPM, 10.2 Assists/2.4 Turnovers and 2.6 steals. His athleticism makes it so he is completely unable to get to the rim (I believe he has attempted just 3 layups all season) yet he is shooting close to 55% from mid range with only 11% of his shots assisted and hovering around 60 TS% (slightly below).

He has been better than John Stockton's age 36 season and is going to be seen as the longevity king in a couple more seasons with a peak rivaling Magic and Curry.

Jesus Christ, I was a playmaker back in the day and this will give me nightmares and make me believe I had those Vietnam memories. He is bananas.

The aggressive defense he has played at times this year works great with McGee and poorly with Ayton. I've noticed when Ayton came back he was still funneling players to him as if it were McGee and they were roasting the Suns. Ayton doesn't have nearly as much effect in the paint when it comes to altering shots, so he should be trying to stop the drives more instead of funneling them. I hope Monty plays McGee and Paul together more seems like so far Paul and Ayton come in and out at similar times
