LA Clippers: Watch Chris Paul’s best lobs from 2015-16
LA Clippers star Chris Paul continued to prove that he’s the best floor general in the NBA last season, and put together a brilliant highlight reel of alley-oop passes in the process.
Chris Paul is the best passing point guard in the NBA. While his poise and vision are what make him the top floor general in the game, an area of his skill set that relies on intelligence and patience to find the right pass, he can still bring a ton of flash. And in the LA Clippers‘ offense alongside Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, that’s more than obvious.
Paul is the passing aficionado of Lob City. This new era in Clippers history has been the team’s greatest success, with them becoming a perennial 50+ win team and boasting one of the very best offenses in the league.
And from running the show with precision in the half court or delivering pinpoint alley-oops in transition, Chris Paul has been the one orchestrating this new era.
So, of course, he put together a beautiful highlight reel of alley-oop passes last season.

Averaging 10 assists per game to go along with 19.5 points in the absence of Griffin through the regular season, Paul yet again lived up to his “Point God” name.
He became the leader of the team, and along with the likes of Jordan, J.J. Redick, and the defensive efforts of the bench stepping up, the Clippers were still able to win 53 games.
