Chris Paul followed Deron Williams in the 2005 NBA Draft and found immediate success in New Orleans. It took a year for D-Will to catch up and since then, the two have been paired in serious discussions about who is the best point guard in the NBA. In head-to-head match-ups, it's usually Williams who wins, but now D-Will wants what CP3 has.

The Clippers' GM, Neil Olshey, first traded for him, placing him at the center of an athletic roster that already had Blake Griffin. Then, he re-signed or acquired DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler, Chauncey Billups and Kenyon Martin. The Clippers are now a legitimate contender in the West. Deron Williams hopes that Billy King can do the same for him. Until then, Jake Appleman writes, Paul can play chess with his roster while Williams is limited to checkers.
