5th Best Two Guard in the NBA

During the Heat vs Lakers game, Reggie Miller said his top five two guards were:

1. Kobe
2. Wade
3. Roy
4. Johnson
5... Ray Allen???

Who's the 5th best two guard in the league? Because it's not Ray Allen lol...

I would go with Jamal

I would go with Jamal Crawford. He has been playing outstanding. Stephen Jackson and Monta Ellis would be very close as well.

Not sure about Carter if he

Not sure about Carter if he plays like that Orlando should win the title.
Would be nice if the Coach would be smart and play Gortat and Howard together more.

Tyreke Evans is that 5th

Tyreke Evans is that 5th guy. He is a 2 guard, but he can play both guard positions. He has really impressed me his rookie season.

monta

JC looks good cause his role has been reduced, last year in GSW he was given a bigger role and didn't have a good year. And Iggy is more of a 3

Tyreke Evans if you class

Tyreke Evans if you class him as a Shooting Guard, which I do. If not then I think it's probably Manu Ginobili because he is what keeps San Antonio, a consistent title contender afloat. When he goes down the Spurs go down.
Though Mayo and Captain Jack are really good to.

Jason terry isnt bad either,

Jason terry isnt bad either, Rip Hamilton is good, Michael Redd just cant stay healthy but was a very good scorer a few years ago. But i think this award goes to OJ Mayo. I consider Reke a PG at this stage in his career. A very good question though. There are alot of good ones to choose from but no clear cut answer that most everyone could agree.

lol..i remeber when reggie

lol..i remeber when reggie said that i was thinking"ray allen"..reggie is always saying something that is completelywrong.. i made a post last year about him saying odom is 7'0 and that lebron is 280. he always exaggerates . its entertaining though...last night he alsokilled me with the "beasley needs to act like hes been there before" when beasley dunked on gasol then got a tech for taunting. reggie knows good and well that even as a older vet he would taunt players and the crowd. as far as sg number 5 should be stephen jackson because of his offense and defense

I think it has to be Monta

I think it has to be Monta Ellis. I would say Iguodala of course, but he's been a SF for the vast majority of this season.

5: Monta Ellis, might just

5: Monta Ellis, might just be Nelsons system, but the guy can be a beast on both ends of the floor.

6: Tyreke Evans, same as above except obviously not in Nelsons system, this guy is extremely underrated on the defensive end. Almost all the players on the Kings have stated at one point or another that Tyreke is their best defensive player.

7: Jackson, still a great player, but cant really compare yet with Ellis and Evans because Ellis has been playing amazing this year and because Tyreke still has a lot of room to get better and has made a huge difference in his team this year with little help.

i think Jack is SF most of

i think Jack is SF most of his career..so it's between Ellis and Evans(IDK Iggy isn't sg anymore?)..i respect Carter and Ray but they are not the same..

Vince Carter???

Look, take it from a Vince Carter fan but I don't think he's considered top 5... If this was the Vince Carter who played well for the Raptors, hell, I might say YES and could even rank him as 3rd or 4th but this VC right now has been inconsistent... It's all about putting effort and byfar I don't see Carter putting much effort in his game today...

The one guy that stand out to me is Andre Iguodala because he remains the consistent guy out there for the Sixers... But he's also debatable since he plays the 3 most of the time...

Stephen Jackson

He's the 5th best two guard in the league right now and it was the same last season too. Last season he averaged 20, 5 and 5. This season he's averaging 21, 5 and 4... And nearly two steals.

At 6' 8" 215 lbs, he can do everything. Look at his game... He's a complete player. He can post you up. He can put the ball on the floor... Run the point. He can pass. Good court vision. Play off the ball/move without the ball. Catch and shoot. One or two dribble pull up. In between game. He can shoot the three ball. Take it to the rim and finish... Still has good athleticism. He can defend three positions on the perimeter and in the post. He plays the passing lanes. He steps up in the fourth quarter and competes hard against everybody he faces.

He makes his teammates better. Gerald Wallace was named to the All-Star team, but everybody knows the Bobcats weren't a playoff caliber team until they traded for Jackson. There were a few people saying Jackson should've been the All-Star.

Yea, kinda forgot about

Yea, kinda forgot about Jackson. He's the 5th best. I've always said that when he's on his game, he's one of the top 25 or so best players in the NBA. He doesn't have very many weaknesses and he's prototypical in just about everything skill-set wise.
