Who doesn't love point guards?
Between the depth of the position and the fact that they usually have the ball in their hands, it's simply the best of the five spots in the lineup.
How do I know it's a deep position? Why else would I feel bad about not mentioning players even after listing out the top 10 and three honorable mentions?
There are more stars at point guard than any of the other four starting spots in a typical rotation, and tons of young players are gunning for the established studs that comprise the top of the rankings.
In fact, eight of the spots in my most recent countdown of the league's top 20 players were filled with 1-guards. There were four apiece for centers and small forwards, while shooting guard and power forward lagged behind with three and one, respectively.
Now that free agency is all but wrapped up and even Brandon Jennings has found a home, let's take a look at how the leaderboard unfolds at the NBA's most glamorous position.
