Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul is already one of the best active floor generals of the NBA, but if he could have the ingredients to make a perfect point guard, he’d know just how to build one.

In a recent interview with Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report, the Thunder point-god extraordinaire revealed which traits from which players he would use in building the ultimate point guard.

To summarize it, here are a few of those traits:

  • Derrick Rose’s explosivess
  • Kyrie Irving’s finishing at the rim
  • Steve Nash’s perimeter shooting
  • Russell Westbrook’s rebounding ability
  • LeBron James’ passing/vision
  • Chris Paul’s basketball IQ
  • Deron Williams/Baron Davis’ physique
  • Gilbert Arenas’ shotmaking ability

That would be one hell of a create-a-player, so much so that if this idea was run by NBA 2K, they’d probably find some way to nerf it or sell it at a really high price point.

Paul is already a spectacular point guard as he is, but the fact that the Thunder guard can recognize the unique standout skills each of his constituents have is perhaps further proof of his all-around basketball genius.

The Thunder veteran has managed to remain an effective dime maestro despite losing a few steps in his speed, reduced athleticism, and battling bigger, stronger, and faster players — a difference that only grows more stark with age.

Chris Paul’s knowledge of the game and of his opponents is what sets him apart from some of the most gifted athletes at his position, as his IQ has aged like fine wine. It’s a big reason why the Thunder are a surprising 36-22 on the season.

CP3 is averaging a stellar 17.5 points, 6.7 assists, and 5.1 rebounds in 31.8 minutes per game this season. He’s shooting 48.6% overall and 36.1% on 3-pointers. The veteran has been one of the best clutch players in the NBA.
