kinda misleading because a

kinda misleading because a lot of those guys aren't gaurds. If you take durant out of the mix with okc, that changes things. And webter and batum who both play sf add a lot of depth to por if you consider them gaurds.

taking those guys out the equation, i would say the blazers, sixers and nets have the best potential backcourts. Of course getting a CP3 or DWill kinda overrides their lack of help around them.

If they were fulltime SF

If they were fulltime SF they werent included. All of these guys will see time at the SG or PG all year. Durant will play the SG and so will Webster and Batum. If they ever play G, they were included.

well, if anybody whoever

well, if anybody whoever plays any minutes at gaurd is included, then we could add a lot of players on this list. And I don't see Durant, webster or Batum playing much gaurd. In fact, I don't think Batum or webster played any gaurd this year or last year. And while durant might play some, he is doesn't play much there. You might as well add Lebron to the gaurd mix as well.

No. This isnt a fantasy

No. This isnt a fantasy question. Last year, Durant even started at the SG some. He is a G/F type of player just like Batum and Webster.

Lebron is over 25 years old.

Lebron is over 25 years old. He does play guard. IMO, this is off topic, but the Cavs should just start Lebron at PG get a big SG and SF and just have a huge lineup. All the Sg and SF need to do is be able to shoot and defend. If they were huge, how could they be guarded?

Even with that, they dont have 3 guards under 25.

I will take the Thunder but

I will take the Thunder but Durant shouldn't be there. Westbrook is carving up and Harden looks like he could be a very good player.

i have to say the thunder

i have to say the thunder easily..durant and roy cancel each other that.west brook will be better then webster or rudy and it wont be that close since i see westbrook as a future allstar..i dont see either webster or rudy as a all star just pretty good players..harden i think will be a good player also..i dont include bayless because he hasnt shown anything int he regular season to qualify in this discussion ...livingston is ok too
