I think he has that killer mentality that's needed that will turn an all-star caliber player into an all-time great player.... see Bryant comma Kobe
Who's better? Who would you take if you were building a team? Why?
I gotta go with Deron. He's got the size/durability advantage. Their passing abilities are a wash as their numbers are just about the same, so to me it comes down to the more efficient offensive player (Deron) or the better pickpocket (CP3) AND their head-to-head matchups (Which Deron has owned).
I'd have to go with DWill. The size and efficiency win out for me.
It'd obviously depend on other factors, but in a vaccuum, D-Will.
Passing yes,scoring CP.Here are the head to head matchup games in more detail 08-09 season in 3 games:
23 ppg 57fg%
16.3 ppg 60fg%
Pretty much a wash either way,granted that 2 of those games were played in Utah(win) and 1 in New Orleans(loss) yeah not much difference there

cp3 does more with a lot less.
MARVEL: CP3 scores more, but he also takes more shots. Deron (as I said earlier) is the more efficient scorer so he makes the best of the shots he takes. He never really has to though with Boozer, Okur, Brewer, and the like. But whenever he wants to take over, he will flat out put a hurting on people.
CHEF: Does more in what sense?
d-will has a much better cast around him. no way he wins 57 games two years ago with new orleans. he has better shooters, better offensive players and a much better coach/system. paul made chandler look really good. for what's it worth, i wouldn't take any other point guard over d-will except paul. even if i could only have them for one year not nash, harris, rondo.
chef, what about West? And they had Brandon Bass too, I think. And Peja. Not a horrible team by any stretch.
