Skip Bayless reveals his shocking ranking for Chris Paul, and explains what he needs to do, to be higher up on the list.
Has LeBron James shared some sort of a secret formula with Chris Paul? Because, even at 36-years-old, Chris Paul is somehow, still one of the best players in the league.
He has elevated this Suns side throughout this season and elevated his own game to new heights in the postseason. In every sense, the player is one of the greatest point guards to ever lace up. Or at least that’s what most of the NBA community believes.
Skip Bayless on the other hand though is a fan of drama. He would let the planet collapse in on itself a billion times over before he starts agreeing with the popular (and oftentimes, right) opinion when it comes to basketball.
And well, in the recent episode of ‘Undisputed’, he explained why he thinks Chris Paul isn’t even in the top-15 in his all-time point-guards list. Yep. Let’s get into it.
“I don’t yet have Chris Paul in my top 15 All-time Point guards”: Skip Bayless
Can you believe this man? Because we certainly can’t. Now, while some (most) of us may want to go all Stephen A. Smith on Skip Bayless already, let’s give the man a chance, shall we?
Watch the following tweet to take a look at what the Undisputed show host had to say on the topic.
Chris Paul obviously has enough regular season achievements to be a Top 5 All-Time point guard, but he doesn’t have it in the postseason. CP3 has a long history of falling apart. Tonight is a huge opportunity for him. More @Undisputed, now on FS1. https://t.co/4c0afdoOGK

Occasions where Skip Bayless makes sense are more than just few and far between, they are collector’s items. And unfortunately for fans of the point-god, we may have found one. The 69-year-old gave CP3 his props, but also justifiably brought up the wrongs CP3 has to fix.
We still don’t think it is fair to have the player anywhere outside the top-5 in the all-time point-guard list. But, if the player wants to win his first-ever chance at a championship, he needs to keep popping up when his team needs him the most.
Will he be able to sustain his form? Or will his story have a disappointing close?
