Ever since 2005, the NBA has found itself in the midst of a point guard renaissance.
The back-to-back-to-back selections of Deron Williams, Chris Paul and Raymond Felton as the third, fourth and fifth picks of the 2005 draft are still having reverberations around the NBA nearly a decade later, with each player heading one of the league's better teams in 2012-13.
Since then, the additions of Derrick Rose (drafted in 2008), Russell Westbrook (2008) and Kyrie Irving (2011), among others, have built a mind-boggling amount of depth at the position.
You know it's a brutally tough competition when two Olympic gold medals don't even guarantee you a top-five spot on this list.
Keep that in mind as you sit there wondering why your favorite point guard isn't featured here.
Note: All 2012-13 statistics and records are current through games played on Dec. 20. These rankings assume that all of these point guards are healthy enough to play, although injury history will be noted for certain players.
