We all now that Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chris Paul is an elite point guard. He’s a nine-time All-Star, a four-time All-NBA first team, he’s led the league in assists four times and in steals six times in his 14-year career. And he’s just six-feet tall. Imagine how good he’d be if he’s at least as tall as Boban Marjanovic.
Apparently, Paul had thought about that already.
In a sit-down interview with ESPN, CP3 was asked which player’s body he’d like to exchange his with. His response?
“I don’t necessarily need the body — I just want the height, you know what I mean? Let me get Boban [Marjanovic’s] height. He’s over 7? Let me get that height. It’s over for everybody. We ain’t even going to play the games.”
Paul’s quickness and Marjanovic’s body? That would terrorize the NBA for sure. CP3 would dominate in the rebounding department, and given his elite court vision, he can definitely initiate a transition offense with ease.
Of course, someone that tall is expected to dribble a little bit slower compared to the smaller guys. Then again, we’re talking about CP3 getting Boban’s height without having to give up anything. Now, picture a seven-foot point guard who has excellent dribbling skills.
That would be a nightmare for opposing teams.
Paul is already one of the best floor generals in the NBA, and even up to this point, he’s better than most floor generals in the league.
Guess opponents just have to be thankful that he isn’t a seven-foot behemoth.
