What does Chris Paul's lack of postseason success say about him as a player? So, what do we do with Chris Paul's career so far? Let's take a look at his r�sum�. � Nine brilliant regular seasons at point guard. Seven All-Star appearances. Finished top-5 in MVP voting four times and top-10 five times. � Led the league in assist rate four times. Is one of three players to average at least 18 points, nine assists and four rebounds in his career (Magic Johnson....

Thanks for posting. I was going to ask someone to post it and saw this. These articles aren't too indepth at all. I mean for a subscription fee, I would expect more. But Paul has to have some serious runs in the playoffs to erase his choking label. In basketball, a superstar can have a huge impact and I'm pretty sure in the next 5 years, Paul will do damage in the playoffs. Maybe not win it all but multiple....

I agree with the article but next year he is going to be getting a lot of heat. Blake needs to be more assertive to help him. ....

I like this article. Thank you for posting! Paul has never had the right teammates surrounding him until this season, or at least, most of the right teammates. I think next year will be a watershed time for him as I expect Doc to upgrade the roster by getting some bigs and wings that would really complement Paul, Blake, and DJ. JJ is a good addition, but we need another sharpshooting defender wing to round out the starting unit. I'm looking....

Good point about the supporting cast. When you break it down DJ had a breakout year but still shows glimpses of the 'old' DJ for most of the POs, Blake is legit but still developing and round out the last 2 starters who predominantly played off the bench for most of their careers. From what i can see next to our poor freethrows the 2 and the 3 positions have an opportunity to improve on dramatically this offseason ....
