Is chris Paul so far ahead cause he's winning?

Seems like they do pretty well without him too.
The otherworldly 4.5 to 1 AST/TO ratio may have something to do with it as well.

If Rondo had that cast he'd prob be there too.

No im joking. Just feels like when Rondo has stats like that its because his teammates are good when Chris Paul does it its because he's good.

When Rondos team is doing bad its because he's doing bad when Chris Pauls team does bad its because of his team not him.
So you're saying that we've never had a cast as good as this season's Clippers since Rondo got here? Because with respect to the AST/TO ratio, Rondo has never had stats "like that".

  Luckily Rondo's numbers hold up during the playoffs, where he has a better career ast/to ratio than Paul, who has a significant advantage in the regular season. The "otherworldly" 4.4/1 ratio Paul had during the season last year was great, the 2/1 ratio he had in the playoffs, not so much.
Um, Paul's career playoff AST/TO ratio is about 3/1. His career regular season playoff ratio is 4/1. So he's pretty much like Rondo in the playoffs, and considerably better in the regular season in this respect.

TP for accuracy and actually watching CP3 play.  I often think that some have never actually seen Chris Paul play (or bothered to look at his stats) and just assume that Rondo is better?

  Just curious, but how would you come to any type of conclusion about how often people in a discussion about Paul's assist/turnover ratio actually see Paul play (or, for that matter, who bothers to look at his stats)?

  Then again, Rondo's performance in the playoffs against weak competition was phenomenal.

  Rondo played against 3 of the top 6 defenses in the league and two of those teams were among the best in the league at limiting the productivity of opposing point guards (the other team was fairly average). That's pretty much the opposite of "weak competition".

Crazy that Deron doesn't make my top seven, but he's had a bad year.  He seems to be coming on strong lately, though.
