Not much time.
Derrick Rose and Chris Paul battled last night in their first, and only, matchup against each other this shortened season, giving fans a very quick glance at who might come out on top of the “Who’s the better point?” debate. So who came out on top?
Judging by the Bulls’ 114-101 win and Rose’s load carrying 29, 8, 16 and 1 to CP3’s 15, 4, 14 and 4, you might say Rose did. And you’d be right. But you might also say that CP3 can put up points AND make his fellow gamers Blake, DeAndre and Caron better with pinpoint spot-finding. And you’d be right. Stats, wins, moves. Maybe all of these things factor into the argument. Maybe they don’t. You figure it out.
In any case, there they were, Derrick in his adidas adiZero Rose 2 “Away” and Paul in his blue Jordan CP3.V. Should the Miami Heat and OKC Thunder somehow not make the 2012 NBA Finals, and the Bulls and Clippers step onto that biggest of basketball stages, then we can restart the debate. And figure out who’s got the better Finals sneakers. Til then, enjoy a quick look at these two blue chips in their single meeting this season.
Oh and there’s some other kicks to check out. Get to it…
