Why do some people say Derrick Rose is better than Chris Paul?

Chris Paul is better than D. Rose in most areas except scoring. D. Rose is only a slighter better scorer than CP3. CP3 is a much better passer, defender, leader. If CP3 had Noah Luol Deng, and Boozer the Bulls would easily be the team to beat in the NBA this season.

    People are just saying that b/c Rose is getting all the attention. CP3 is better, he's just having a quiet year, he should really be considered in MVP talks b/c ppl didnt even have the Hornets making the playoffs in the beginning of the season, and now they are in even without their best low post player in David West.

    CP3 is a better shooter, defender, FG% is higher, assist is higher than Rose with less talent, better playmaker as PG, he looks to get his teammates involved first, I could keep going; just a better PG imo

    Source(s): PS: I watched both players throughout the season.

    Chris Paul need talent around him, he should go to Orlando . If he played ANY WHERE with Howard, he would easily average 12 plus assist .
