I can actually say that the people that vote for the top 100 players in espn's poll were "smoking bomb bud!" Only one player in the league can claim to be as good or better than CP3!
CP3 not only was a coach-player but he makes every player on his team that much more efficient. He has been the best leader since entering the league, always making players seem better than what they are. He makes some of his team mates better but others just needed smarter play makers with the ball. CP3 competes every second he is on the floor. LBJ may be better but KD is not even on CP3's level. The man is a pure scorer but that's it, he doesn't give the same effort on defense that he does on the other side of the ball. He may have more physical gifts than CP3 but he is only as good as his surrounding cast.
CP3 is the clear second best player in the NBA, he has always made players better. He will continue to make players better and continue to lead his team to over achieve. The only difference is this year the Clippers are expected to be winners and contenders. The only problem with those expectations are only among those with ties to the Clippers believe that they can win it all. But the season is less than a week away and the Clippers can bring the non-believers to the LIGHT!
