The NBA All-Terminator Team

I know now why you cry. But it’s something I can never do. Horace Smith continues his NBA series, this time with his “All-Terminator” NBA team.

Chris Paul

  • Best point-guard in the league
  • Nickname doesn’t do him justice
  • Why does his 3-year old son have an Instagram account?

I’m surprised CP3 went with a nickname that sounds a lot like a comical robot in a currently shamed Star Wars’ franchise who probably has below-average speed and handle. I understand it’s a family nickname but I would have chosen CPTX, after the highly advanced T-X terminatrix than can change shape as well as appearance. After all, CP3 has an uncanny ability to change speeds, direction and engage in overall basketball terminator sorcery.

On a side note, remember when people actually thought Deron Williams was a better point guard than Chris Paul? It was clearly a joke then (right?). CP3TX is currently the finest point guard the NBA has to offer – by a long shot – and has managed such greatness without a meniscus in one of his knees. He’s the best balance of on-court skill and off-court acting talent as well (sorry Blake).
