There are “scoring” point guards like Russell Westbrook and Kyrie Irving but there also are “pure” point guards like Chris Paul and Elfrid Payton. Today's NBA is filled with scoring points, but the teams with points that make everyone around them better (a la Magic, Stockton and Isiah) seem to produce the best success. The 2015 NBA draft is filled with fantastic point guards that can do it all.

Needs: Towns or Okafor to be a star
Picks: 1, 31, 36
