The top 10 point guards in the league
i would put nash ahead of rose as of now....
Is Jennings better than Gilbert Arenas, Baron Davis, Devin Harris and Jameer Nelson right now?
ehh, i think so tezo. davis, i could make an arguement for, when he actually decides to play
I agree with that list, I think Nash should be ahead of Rose though. Jennings and Nelson is a very close one too. One of those 2 is the 10th best.
1..Chris Paul when he's healthy he is the best pg in the nba some might say deron but deron's team has always been better but yet CP3 lead the hornets to the 2nd best record in the west avg 22 and 11 last season
2.Deron Williams depending on how paul comes back from injury he could be the best but we have to wait and see
3.Derrick Rose in back to back season's with different teammates on each of his teams made the playoffs and played like a star in the playoffs avg 22,7,5 in his lone two seasons making each series competitive
5.Rajon Rondo is proving he is the celtics best player
5.Steve nash i know people would put him at three but he cant dominate the game on all aspects like the 4 above
6.Chauncey Billups he really disappointed me in the playoffs
7.Tony Parker before his injuries top 5
8.Russell Westbrook will be top 5 next season
9.Jason Kidd his age is showing now
10.Brandon Jennings has to control his emotions but once he learns to finish with his right hand and his shot selection gets better top 5 in 3-5 yrs
tony parker deep throuts timmy d's cock.
When playing head to head...Rose has dominated Nash 3 out of 4 times i believe. So my list would go like this:
This season's pretty much over, so here's how I'd pick'em for next season:
1. Chris Paul: Offensively, has best overall skill set and good decision maker. Not great on the ball defender, but ability to steal ball makes him at least average defensively.
2. Deron Williams: Paul is a little bit better at just about everything offensively, but D-Will is better defender and usually wins head-to-head battles.
3. Rajon Rondo: If this guy learns how to shoot, he'll be the best. Looks as fast as anyone, and can take over with penetration skills. Already considered to best defender.
4. Derrick Rose: Controls offense really well. Deadly from inside 3-pt range. Good defender. With his talent, should be more of a triple double threat.
5. Steve Nash: Best shooter and arguably most skilled and coordinated. Feel like he turns the ball over too much and is gets burned by good point guards defensively.
6. Russell Westbrook: Pretty similar to Rose. Relies more on athleticism and less polished. Needs to work on his shooting, but great defender that fills up stat sheet.
7. Chauncey Billups: Seems to have lost a step. Still really good at getting to the line, where he's money. Probably has one, possibly two seasons left as a top 10 PG.
8. Tony Parker: Forget this past year. Aside from Billups, only guy on list to lead his team to a title.
9. Brandon Jennings: Really needs to work on shot selection, but that was a pretty bad Bucks team he led to the playoffs this year. Must be doing something right that doesn't show up in the stat line.
10. Jason Kidd: At this point, offensively he drives and dishes or catches and shoots from 3. Has become a good 3 point shooter. Looks really bad when asked to guard quick PGs.
Honorable mention: Steph Curry, Jameer Nelson, Baron Davis
Wait, Tyreke Evans doesn't play point anymore ? Cause I clearly remember him playing PG the whole season and winning rookie of the year...
Curry is already one of the best shooters at point in the league. He's also a better rebounder, defender and more consistant than Jennings. He also had more assists to boot. I know Jennings took Milwaukee to the playoffs but I still say Curry is the better player and should be ahead of Jennings on any list of the top point guards...
Tyreke Evans isnt a point guard..Even though he excelled at the position this season...He's like Wade he has the talent to play the point..But he's more affective at the shooting guard
my rankings for next season:
I think Kidd is being really overrated on here by you guys
You don't think Jason Kidd will be a top 20 point guard next season? And what about Andre Miller?
i would have them in my next 2-3 out
in fact, i take it back, remove MoWill and put Kidd in there at 20
but if you put those other 19 guys in dallas at the pg spot, i think they improve at that position. Kidd is getting by on reputation more then anything right now. He doesnt get into the lane, defend or shoot all that well consistently.
Even at 37, you know J-Kidd can still be a threat at PG... He's still a triple double waiting to happen... He should be on your list...
i admitted he should be at 20, but what guy above that would you say he is better then?
i still think hes extremly underrated.
Baron is a good point guard but he hasn't been the same when he left GSW... He shot the ball poorly as a Clipper and he never led his team to wins consistently... As talented and as hardworking Stuckey is, I think Mo Williams is better and J-Kidd should be there ahead... He hasn't been the kind of leader the Pistons need...
stuckey has been the pistons best player the last 2 years and he gets into the lane at will. He is also a very solid defender. He doesnt have much help in detroit.
Baron was not better then kidd last year, i agree. But he was also dealing with injuries and i think he plays more consitent next year. Kidd is not getting any better.
It's close to moving kidd up another couple spots, but i just think he is not a guy i would want starting at pg anymore. He doesnt really get his teammates easy baskets anymore. He just makes the basic passes. He doesnt push it in transition the same anymore. And his shooting is not that great considering he gets a lot of good looks. His defense is near the bottom of starting pg's at this point.
If Baron performs the way he did with the GSW before, he should definitely be in the Top 10...
Baron could move up a lot if he played like he did years ago. I've always had my eye on baron as he was the best bruin i have ever seen play in college. But he isnt the same right now and he settles for bad shots, but i think the clipps as a whole pick things up next year and he will be more focused. Anyways, good night fize, im out.
Here's my list as of right now:
1. Deron Williams - He destroyed Chauncey Billups in the first round. He's the best as of right now. Arguably the best before Paul's injury.
2. Chris Paul - He was playing lights out before the injury. Due to the injury, he drops a spot... For now.
3. Steve Nash - He's never been a defender, but he's as good as they come offensively and at making his teammates better. He's one of the best shooters in NBA history.
4. Derrick Rose - He's a beast. Freak athlete. He's improved his jumpshot and is starting to show that killer instinct... Taking over ball games. IF the Bulls get him some help, we'll see more of his playmaking ability.
5. Rajon Rondo - He's controls the pace of the game at an elite level. He does everything at an elite level, except shoot. He's fearless too.
6. Chauncey Billups - He has the type of game that doesn't deterioate with age. He still makes big plays.
7. Russell Westbrook - He's still learning how to be a point guard, which is scary. He has an all-around game and slashes with the best of them. I'm excited to see him in year three.
8. Tony Parker - He was a top five point guard before the season started, but took a step back due to injury. He's still a top ten point guard.
9. Jason Kidd - At 37 years old, he's more durable than Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson and Gilbert Arenas put together. He averaged 10.3 points, 9.1 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.8 steals and shot 42.5% from 3P this season. He rarely turns the ball over.
10. Gilbert Arenas - He was averaging 22.6 points and 7.2 assists this season, but his shooting percentages were terrible and he was a turnover machine. The Wizards were terrible too. He didn't play enough games this season for me to rank him any higher.
"Young" Point Guards
1. Deron Williams
2. Chris Paul
3. Rajon Rondo
4. Derrick Rose
5. Russell Westbrook
6. Jameer Nelson
7. Stephen Curry
8. Tyreke Evans
9. Brandon Jennings
10. Aaron Brooks
This would include Nash, Billups, Parker, Kidd, but since they are on the latter stages of their careers I left them off.
Wait why is Parker in "the latter stages" of his career when Nelson is on the list and is a couple months older?
At the guy who said Tyreke Evans played PG all year... You clearly did not watch any Kings games. Beno Udrih played PG while Evans played combo PG/SG depending on who was in the game. But for majority of the game Udrih was PG and Evans was SG
Next Years Rankings
(1)Williams - The most solid Pg in the NBA although I would definitely rather have Rondo
(2)Paul - If he can bounce back from recent injury problems hes nnumber one
(3)Rondo - Very underutilized with Boston's "Big 3" system we will see what happens as Boston gets younger
(4)Rose - Primetime performer his Mid Range game is going to be unstoppable
(5)Nash - Steves athletic abillity is not good at all which gets him destroyed by younger gaurds
(6)Evans - His stats are deceptive although he is affective, he has alot to work on
(7)Westbrook - This guy is in my opinion the most explosive PG is the league and still developing his jumper
(8)Billups - He is the perfect definition of a floor general but is aging
(9)Harris - Playing on a winning team will remind us once again Harris is a premiere talent
(10)Jennings - If he can put his whole game together and be consistent the sky is the limit, I don't see it happeneing 10/11
Watch out for
Nelson - Possibly the most underated player in the league, a true floor general and playoff performer
Parker - I am not sure how he is going to respond to losing Ginobli and he has many injury problems
Mayo - If he gets the starting PG position he will handle the rock more often and be allowed to create comfortably
Curry - Im not sure if hes classified as a 1 or 2 but if hes a 1 than he could easily push into the Top 10 with his potential
Calderon - If Jose gets traded to a team to be a starter that is stacked with players (MIAMI) than he could easily be great
TThere is no way in hell im putting Chris Paul ahead of Deron Williams on this list. I just cant. I watch too much basketball 2 even believe that &$#%#&@!. Yes Chris Paul is a great point guard but Deron Williams is jus better. I have been saying 4 years deron is better. CP3 gets more exposure and of course the New orleans resurrection has made him more popular among fans but watching them play head 2 head and against elite pgs u can jus tell deron is better. The only reason deron stats are lower are because the Jazz have that structured jerry sloan offense. Cp3 gets 2 roam off pick and rolls and make plays. Again im not bashing CP but deron is jus the better point guard. Kenny smith has also been saying it 4 awhile and not until recently has Charles barkley been made a believer in the playoffs that deron is the best. Bu there how my list goes......
#1 Deron Williams
#2 Chris Paul
#3 Steve Nash (guy is just a warrior and big time performer when it counts)
#4 Derrick Rose (behind nash only because of his lack of shooting)
#5 Rajon Rondo (I think the most important guy on the Celtics team. Iniates the offense, and is a ballhawk on defense)
#6 Chauncey Billups (really struggled but is still 1 of the most underrated guards in the league
#7 Russell westbrook (guy is blossoming into another derrick rose isnt he? explosive as hell jus seems 2 hang 4 days)
#8 Tony Parker (guy was tearing it up before the injuries. still a goood point guard)
#9 Jameer Nelson (i mean have u seen him? guy is 5 10 dropping giant killers and getting 2 the hole at will)
#10 Jason Kidd (sumhow he still makes it even at his old age, jus dont watch him guard guys like aaron brooks)
