09:04 AM ET 10.20 | Although Clippers guard Chris Paul has been back on the court with the team for more than a week, he's still dealing with the aftereffects of surgery on his right thumb. While Paul is cleared for contact, he's still not 100 percent comfortable. "The other night there were times I knew I could steal the ball, but I don't want to take the risk," Paul said. "Even though the doctors say I'm good and stuff like that, the hardest part is getting it through your head." Paul is practicing and playing with a protective brace on the thumb, which he said affects his dribbling and shooting. "It ain't the easiest thing, but I'm trying to deal with it," he said.

Of course to me he is the best but not on one hand or one leg

With one leg and arm hes better than the average PG!! Ah I know Ginobli is not the PG but hes out until the Christmas break most of the time.... and you always hail Ginobli for being a top guard...Half the season, for what 3+ years!!!
