Scoring: His post fade animation is great and goes in more than not, his open shots will go down, and I found him able to hit a fair amount of contested shots as well, and his descent speed for a PF allows for him to get past his defenders (PF-C) and finishes a lot with dunks. He can score from the post to the three point line, which is incredibly useful to have in any player.
Defense: Paul's strength allows him to defend guys like LeBron, and makes up a good bit for being a bit undersized for the PF spot. He was able to hold his own against bigger players like Marc Gasol due to his strength. Also, a block rating of 95 and steal rating of a 88 is fantastic for a PF, I was able to get a good amount of blocks with him, and he grabbed his fair share of steals from passes, and was able to poke the ball out of many PF's due to their poor ball handling.
- Rebounding: Don't let his size fool you, I found Paul to really get up for boards, and was able to grab a good amount for himself.
Size: He is a bit short for the PF spot. But, many people online play their SF's at PF, so that shouldn't be a huge problem in that area. Though, I did find on occasion Paul wouldn't grab a board just due to him being a bit shorter than his matchup.
Passing: He is not really bad at this, but there would be a few dumb turnovers from passes that didn't seem that difficult. I wouldn't recommend doing anything to risky with passing from Paul.
- Speed at SF: For a PF he is actually fairly quick, but if you plan to play him at the SF, he is a bit slow for that position. I still find him to be great at the SF, but many people like speed, so this could be an issue if you prefer a faster SF.
Recommended Strategy: Use his speed to get past his defender (PF-C) for a easy dunk. Use his post fade for a lot easy buckets. Also, when bringing the ball up the court, catch Paul coming up for a easy three point opportunity.
Use if: You want an extremely well rounded PF/SF, who can basically do all the things you would want.
Don't use if: His size at the PF spot bothers you, Also, his speed might not be great for some when it comes to playing him at the SF position.
Bottom Line: He is the third highest in terms of total stats so far in the game. The only thing you could say he is truly bad at is contact dunk, but in game, that doesn't seem to really be much of anything. He can score, rebound, and defend. I only wouldn't pick him up if his size bothers you at the PF, or his speed at the SF spot just isn't for you. If that doesn't bother you, you can have one of the most well rounded cards in the game.
