12:55 PM ET 05.25 | Chris Paul had a good experience in New Orleans with Monty Williams and then assistant coach Mike Malone, so it should be no surprise that the Clippers are looking hard at Malone for their vacant head coaching position. With Paul set to become an unrestricted free agent, the Clippers want to do everything in their power to convince the star point guard to re-sign. Hiring Malone - now an assistant under Mark Jackson in Golden State - would seem to be a good start, and Williams believes it would be a solid hire. "You don't know what it takes to get a job. It's not just about basketball all the time. But I just hope, I hope that he gets a job soon," Williams told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "I know he really wants to do it, and I know he'll be a really good head coach. The tough part is knowing I gotta coach against him because I know he really knows his stuff."

If CP3 makes all these decisions than he'll have a very stressful season next year because everything would be on his shoulders now. He better have a better season than last season...

And when finally they lose AGAIN next season, he'll pin it on coaching flaws or injuries or the moon or something else. There are some people that NEVER hold themselves accountable. The fact is Paul isn't THAT good a player to take his team to a championship, he has had several chances so far and he hasn't even done what Melo did with the Nuggets, or what Conley did with Grizzlies or Dwight did with Orlando.
At some point in time, it's time to look at the mirror.

I disagree. Paul is one of the top 5 players right now. He is mentioned in the MVP race every year. He is a leader that does everything. He can carry the team when he needs to but he does need help like any other superstar... Arguably the best PG right now...

The point is, he HAD help. Griffin, Butler, Bledsoe aren't help? What does he exactly need? Kobe Bryant to suit up for him?
Yes they can tinker around the lineup a little bit here and there, but the core is what it is. Not gonna change much, which means same result next year too?

The best PG in the league is Tony Parker, end of story. The results are there to see. He performs under pressure in playoffs, NOT just the regular season (unlike Paul). Exactly what has Paul done in the playoffs?
