Ish Smith

I know he's a career backup guy and all that, but seriously is he the fastest PG in the league?

From end to end he's got to be in the top 3 no lower than top 5.

He doesn't get much publicity, but he's faster than Bledsoe, who is his current teammate and people consider Jeff Teague in the upper echelon for PG's far as speed goes and Teague admitted in college that Ish was by far faster than him when they were at Wake together.

Serious post.

I would rank a healthy Ty

I would rank a healthy Ty Lawson, Derrick Rose and Westbrook top three. I haven't watched this guy yet.

Oh this guy is fast. No doubt

Oh this guy is fast. No doubt about it. He used to play on the Rockets and I could of sworn, he was faster than Aaron Brooks (then, one of the fastest guys in the L)

Like I said earlier he may not be top 3, but he's no lower than 5, watch him push a fast break at full speed and get back to me, he's fast like foreal fast lol I cant describe it, it blew me away, I knew he was fast but I just didn't realize how fast he was until I really payed attention to him.

Tongue out where would you rank him from just a speed standpoint?

It terms of raw speed not

It terms of raw speed not skill, I'd put him in the same category as Wall, Rose, Westbrook, Lawson, and Parker.

Yea, I agree like I said I got him right after Westbrook and Rose based off just raw speed from end to end, people may not agree because they don't see much of him.

But for anyone who may want to disagree catch a Suns game this year and get back to me.

In terms of raw speed man he's as fast as anyone I seen from baseline to baseline.

I put it like this I cant put him over anyone with Elite speed, but I also can't put anyone over him.

Barbosa had jets for sure tho.

Yeah, he's up there. His

Yeah, he's up there. His speed with the ball is probably the only reason why he's in the league.
There are actually stats that track player movement like speed with the ball.
The player who was clocked as the fastest end to end with the ball in his hands was Tony Parker at 20.9 MPH.

Nate Robinson is a flash on

Nate Robinson is a flash on the court. He played college football too, and is rumored to have ran a 4.3 40 out of high school.
