2. deron williams has been shooting TERRIBLY. time for the better pg debate. cp3 vs dwill. was dwill only good b/c he always had talent around him in utah? can dwill put up all-star #s on a ****ty team, be as efficient/productive as his arch rival, and lead a team of **** cast members to the playoffs?
eric gordon's an all star level player already, he was their main creator and he was definitely their finisher
as good as blake has been, eg was the go to guy in the 2nd half and the guy they could just throw the ball to and say go get something.. often times a trip to the free throw line
baron's departure isn't a real big deal if eg is playing, but huge if he isn't.. cuz that leaves them with nothing
Deron's averaged almost 16 assists a game in his 3 in NJ and still 14 pts a game
Paul is more efficient.. I don't think you can argue that.. he's probably the most efficient player in the league.. he doesn't take bad shots, he doesn't turn the ball over
You can see how Deron can be better in their matchups together.. Deron owns him defensive and offensively, he's bigger, stronger, much more of a scorer
Deron's better on a bad team imo.. he'll take the big shots, he'll be the primary scorer if you need it.. Paul's the better player on a talented team where he can just make the smart play at all times and not have to go into Kobe mode to win games or play dominant defense (Paul's a good defender, but Deron's well above him for just individual defense)
Considering Nj's terrible, one of the best players they could have gotten is deron
I think the difference between them is only amplified by paul's knees now
On a championship team I would far prefer Paul.. on any team less than that.. I rather have Deron
