I still think D-Will, CP3, and Nash are far and above the best point guards in the NBA, even if some guys are close statistically.

Rondo is horrendous in a half court set. If he's not fast breaking and playing park style, he's ineffective. It's amazing how people consider him an elite point guard when he's completely useless in half court offense. You don't even need to guard him, lol. He gets boards because it's hard to box him out when you're not defending him..besides, Boston isn't a good rebounding team anyway so he's able to snatch them.

Put it this way, if Dwill was on Boston, the Lakers would be in trouble and would have to focus a lot of their D on him. If you imagine them in different scenarios, I think you have to take into consideration their weaknesses. Rondo would be completely ineffective if he was on the Lakers triangle offense. Can't spot up, can't make free throws. Rose wouldn't have the green light every single possession either and doesn't have the IQ of a dwill or nash.
I agree with that.

Put Deron/Nash/CP3 in any system on any team in the league and they would flourish. Deron and CP3 even moreso because they can play defense to go along with double digit assists and almost 20 ppg

Chris Paul has not shown the ability to run a complex offense (Utah for example). New Orleans has an extremely unbalanced offense and its one reason why they are so mediocre. They like to run 30 high screen/rolls a game and yes he is good at it. However his ball dominance makes his other teammates spectators. No back door cuts, early attacks, weak side action, no creativity.

Chris has not shown poor instincts or PG skills in any scenario at any point in his documented basketball career. He has always been able to do what his coaches ask him too, and execute it in stellar fashion.

You fail to acknowledge that Rondo is a very capable slasher in a half-court set, and doesn't have to get his picking a team apart from 17".

just to add to this, they also haven't been mediocre when he's been healthy. they actually surprised quite a few people with how successful they've been in the West with him controlling the rock.

You hold it against Chris Paul that his offense runs a lot of high screen & rolls? You talk about Utah having a complex offense; screen & rolls are a major part of Sloan's offense. Has been for over 20 years. Same thing with Phoenix. Nash flourishes when they run high screen & rolls.

Chris Paul is at his best when he penetrates and creates for his big men or his spot up shooters in the corners. But where Paul really flourishes is in the open court. His ability to manage and control everyone on his team on the break is a huge strength of his.
