If we're going to cite numbers, how about three rings vs. none? Or more wins this season?
My analysis isn't strictly about numbers, though. Parker is better than Paul because he knows his place on the team. He has shown that throughout the years - unlike Paul, who attempts to lead and fails. Paul will continue to fail as long as he thinks he can do everything. I believe Paul should focus less on scoring and more on man-to-man defense and distributing. Paul leads the league in steals, but his overall defense really needs some work. And we all know he's capable of putting up more than nine assists per game, especially on a team with more talent than the Hornets.
I also realize that Paul would have more wins if he had, say, ended up with the Lakers, but he'd learn more from Bryant than the other way around.
Look, Paul is a very good player, but the way he gets sucked off year after year is ridiculous. It's time to expect more from him.

Haha rings? Yes because Paul had the big 3 to pass to.
Not that Cavemold is worth responding to, but just for clarification, I was referring to Tony Parker's three rings.
Theres a reason why rondo got left off the USA try out team....
You're criticizing Chris Paul for focusing on scoring too much while Tony Parker takes the exact same amount of shots and he has much more efficient scorers to play with.
You saying Chris Paul needs to focus more on distributing and isn't getting enough assists, but he averages more assists than Tony Parker and is naturally more of a distributor than Tony Parker is anyway.
No no no. The clippers didnt get the 4th seed because cp3 wouldn't pass the ball more or didn't live up to his potential .... It was because Vinny Del Negro runs a terrible zone defense..
Chris Paul is a better defender than Steve Nash.
Chris Paul is a better distributor than Tony Parker.
Chris Paul is a better scorer than Rajon Rondo.
Yet somehow in your mind you're able to overlook the flaws in their games and come to conclusion than they're all better than Chris Paul.
Paul (and really, everyone you mentioned) is also a better defender than Nash, which is vital considering the strength of the current crop of PGs.
Poor comparison really, none of those other PGs have played their entire career with the best PF of all time.
