Top 5 2013 Point Guards: Chris Paul, UFA; Kyle Lowry, UFA; Brandon Jennings, RFA; Tyreke Evans, RFA; Jeff Teague, RFA
During the 2012 offseason, the class of point guards was highlighted by All-NBA talent such as Deron Williams and Steve Nash. Behind them was the star ability of Jeremy Lin, as well as the veteran prowess of Andre Miller.
Paired with the promise of Goran Dragic, the 2012 class was built with All-Stars and quality starters.
Beyond the top five was the likes of Lou Williams, Chauncey Billups, Raymond Felton, Ramon Sessions, George Hill and D.J. Augustin. Even Jason Kidd and Jerryd Bayless were available to sign, which provides the depth necessary to round out a quality class.
As for the 2013 crop of point guards, the stars are out in full power. Led by first-team All-NBA point guard Chris Paul, this group commands attention for their star ability alone.
Along with CP3 are the likes of Kyle Lowry, Brandon Jennings and Tyreke Evans. Although John Wall and Ricky Rubio have had their team options exercised, the likes of Jeff Teague, Chauncey Billups, Mo Williams and Jose Calderon will be available, as will Tyreke Evans, Darren Collison, Jarrett Jack and Greivis Vasquez.
Although both classes are solid, the likes of Paul, Wall, Rubio, Lowry and Jennings secure the win over D-Will, Nash, Dragic and Lin. In other words, how can you not be excited about CP3?
Elite for the win.
