Chris Paul shared his thoughts on why Allen Iverson and Gilbert Arenas were so tough to guard.

Paul had to guard Iverson and Arenas when he joined the NBA in 2005, because those were two of the best guards in the league at the time and Paul was trying to make a statement.

“If he misses 5 shots in a row, he’ll shoot the 6th one like he made them 5. Allen Iverson was one of those people that was always at you. Just always at you.

I always bring up Gilbert (Arenas) because Gil was so tough… Gil was a problem,” Paul said, via Tomer Azarly of Clutchpoints.
