Last season, Trey Burke became the first point guard to win the Naismith and Wooden awards since Jameer Nelson in 2004.
If the first month of the season is any indication of how the rest of the year will play out, a point guard could win for the second straight year.
Five of the 10 players in these rankings are point guards, and another two are combo guards who can shift over to the point when necessary.
It could just be that there's a lot of talent at that position this season, but that's not the whole story. The rule changes have made it easier to operate for point guards, especially those who are great penetrators.
So complain about the rules if you'd like, but watching these great point guards operate without getting mugged has been pretty fun to witness.
