67RIEFNS No. 24: Chris Paul, NBA’s most underrated point guard | ProBasketballTalk
Clippers point guard on his own level in post-Magic Johnson NBA. A quick article looking at win shares of point guards since Magic; CP3 is the point god.

Chris Paul, no. 3 #SLAMTop50
CP3 comes in at number 3 for SLAM's rankings of the best players in the league this year. The most interesting quote:

Among NBA players with at least a 20 percent usage rate last season, Paul was No. 1 in offensive rating, scoring 1.25 points per possession. Actually, he's been No. 1 in the NBA in that statistical category each of the last three seasons since joining the Clippers. Better than Kevin Durant. Better than LeBron James.

Five favorites to win NBA 2014-15 MVP
Smart money should go on LeBron James, but there will be serious challengers. The best bet for the Clippers may be in Blake Griffin continuing to up his game, but CP3 may be his biggest opposition.

Los Angeles Clippers: 2014-15 is a Boom-or-Bust NBA Season
For the Los Angeles Clippers, the 2014-15 NBA season is boom-or-bust. For definitional purposes, bust will be anything less than a Western Conference Finals this year.

Into the different power rankings of the pre-season and for the upcoming season. Reddit has the Clippers ranked fourth behind the Spurs, Cavs, and Bulls. Sports Illustrated has the Clippers third behind the Spurs and the Cavs. The Corner Three has the Clippers looking to place second behind the Spurs this year in the western conference in a great preview. Interestingly despite the Clippers only having one win this preseason, and maybe fans seemingly freaking out and starting to worry, in ranking the Clipper are still considered the second best team in the West behind the Spurs. Maybe we can all just calm down a little bit.
