The only thing Ric Bucher and Chris Broussard like to do more than report on the NBA is argue about the NBA. So we decided to combine those two skills for Insider's weekly One-on-One series, in which they'll debate the hottest topics in the association.

Question: Is Chris Paul or Deron Williams the NBA's best point guard?

BROUSSARD: A few years ago, Chris Paul was viewed widely, though not unanimously, as the best point guard in the NBA. But after missing much of last season due to injury, he seemed to be a forgotten man, losing his unofficial crown. That slight has fueled CP3's comeback and, while it's still early, I believe he's regained his position as the best point guard in the league.

BUCHER: It's terrific to see CP3 back in form and making the New Orleans Hornets relevant again, especially after he, and they, looked so out of sync and shape in the preseason. He's certainly one of the top four point guards in the league again. But for all-around best point guard, I'm going to stick with Deron Williams.
