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.
Such performance from Paul has garnered him more praise this offseason.
In the Sports Illustrated NBA Top 100, Paul was ranked 4th, coming behind only Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and 1st place LeBron James. With such a standing, Paul narrowly beat out 5th place Russell Westbrook, who was ranked behind due to less consistency, poise, trust to run a more structured offense, and inferior defense.
