After this Finals series, do you guys think this changes him from being the #1 overall point guard in the game? At least that's what most of the media believed and fed us for some time.

If not you, will the media probably sway their opinions now again?

He's top 5 no doubt. 

 

His defense is still suspect though.

^ Well, where do you have him specifically?

 

Did he drop for you a bit after this Finals showing or do you give him somewhat of a pass and blame most of it on his hamstring?

 

Could you rank your top 5 while you're at it if you could please? Curious.

He's not the best.

Out CP3 in this series and he would have finished the series in 5 games. You can't affect Chris Paul's offense the way you can affect Tony's.

Hell, I might go as far as saying a healthy Rose would have done a better job than TP did this series.

Tony was great for the first couple games, he just didn't get much help

Another thing that really hurt Parker in my opinion in this series was that he benefits a lot usually from touch foul contact, especially going to the basket of course and well, overall, the refs were not giving him that most of the time and I think he had a tough time adjusting to that at times.

 

He was forced to have to settle more often than usual with that jump shot and unfortunately for him and the Spurs, it was as bad as it could be for too many stretches.

Did he play this past season?

Nope.

We are talking about my top 5 at the current moment. Hard to put someone in the top five when he played a whopping 0 minutes.

Chris Paul was and still is the best point guard in the game.

^ That may be true, but at the same time in saying that, it's still pretty amazing that this late in his career, he has yet to even go that far in the playoffs.
