This is a new thing that we are going to be doing daily at The Halk Report. We are going to compare some of the best basketball players by positions. Some of these are so hard to prove who is actually the better player but here we let the fan's decide. So who is the better player Chris Paul or Kyle Lowry?
Chris Paul has had plenty of great seasons and has a lot more years in the league than Lowry. We don't typically compare by numbers because a lot of times they become irrelevant. What CP3 can do on a Los Angeles team could be completely different than what Lowry can do on a Toronto team.
CP3 is more of a true point Guard while Kyle Lowry is just a unique guard. You could put Lowry at the one or the two and he would be just ass affective. If you moved Chris Paul to the two then he wouldn't be as affective because he wouldn't have the ball as much and couldn't rack up those assists.
Kyle Lowry is hands down the better scorer. He can get to the basket better than Paul can. Chris Paul is your typical pass first guard while Kyle is the shoot first guard. He is Russell Westbrook without all of that athleticism. That's not a diss on Lowry at all. He just isn't as athletic as Westbrook is.
At the end of the day, this really is all up to you guys. Who do you think is the better overall player? Who would you want on your team?
