Wait -- that's not Chris Paul running the Hornets' offense?
This article appears in the March 22 issue of ESPN The Magazine.
Utah's Deron Williams crouches helplessly in his defensive stance as the Hornets point guard he is covering crosses over, throws a shoulder fake, then explodes to the hole for a nice finger-roll finish.
Before you say, "Well, yeah -- Chris Paul can make anyone look bad," please note that Paul, in street clothes, has just jumped off the bench to pump his fist toward his lightning-quick replacement, Darren Collison. "Darren's a great young guard," Williams says. "It's hard to tell him and Chris apart."
To read more about how Darren Collison is playing like Chris Paul, you must be an ESPN Insider.
