Eye on Basketball Podcast: Comparing Chris Paul, Tony Parker

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined by Matt Moore on Friday to talk about our post-deadline lives and the madness that was the NBA trade deadline. And there wouldn't be any NBA madness without the tales of Metta World Peace from the Los Angeles Lakers. The latest story involving World Peace leads us to talking about our favorite stories involving "Ron." This leads us to the issues surrounding the New York Knicks and shooting guard J.R. Smith. Is he worth the trouble, and how do other organizations deal with stuff like this?

We also get into the differences between Chris Paul and Tony Parker, while discussing the system that helps Parker thrive with the San Antonio Spurs. Is it fair or even a slight if you mention that the Spurs' system is designed perfectly to maximize what Parker is good at on a basketball court? Isn't that what coaches are supposed to do? And if the player thrives in a system that sets him up for success, doesn't that mean the player is doing his job or exceeding what he's supposed to do?

We get into all of that, plus we preview Friday night's games.
