Chris Paul: Player of the Month

The NBA announced its Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Month today. And who should be at the top of the Wild, Wild West? None other than New Orleans' own Chris Paul who averaged 20.3 ppg, 11.6 apg, 5.7 rpg, and 2.8 spg. The Chef has pretty much willed his team to victory in nine of 15 contests. And, more often than not, he's been the bright spot in each of those six losses. He shares the honor with Eastern Conference counterpart LeBron James. Certainly not bad company to keep.

Congratulations, CP3. Now, players 2-10 in Byron Scott's rotation, take note. Please don't waste such an amazing season from one of the greatest point guards to play the game. He can't do it alone. Not over 82 games, anyway.

CP3 had one of the greatest seasons for a point guard ever last year. And somehow, he's been even better this year. It's like he's not human.

I know I'm spoiled when Paul puts up 21, 11, 5, and 3 in only 30 minutes (against Memphis on 12/6)... and I don't even blink.
