Led by burgeoning superstar Kyrie Irving, the current NBA rookie class has given the league five promising point guards that teams can plan to build a franchise around.
It's no secret that the 2011 NBA draft class is one of the weaker field of prospects that the league has seen in quite some time. While college stars such as Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger and Perry Jones III opted to stay in school with the threat of the impending lockout, the hype of the 2011 draft took a significant hit.
However, the first full month of the NBA season has given us a very promising glimpse of the future. Several rookie point guards are showing the potential to become leaders of their respective franchises.
While this year's crop of rookies may be relatively weak, there's no denying that the future of our sacred league will be in good hands for the next decade or so.
