Back in the day, big men ruled the NBA. In 2012, the league is now run by smaller players that go by the name of point guard.
These five players are extremely important to their teams. They take shots at crunch time, make players around them better and lead their respective teams to either the playoffs and, in some cases, the NBA Finals.
These five players are the top five point guards for the 2012-2013 NBA season.
