Is any position more glamorous than point guard?
Centers historically win championships, but floor generals are the players who win over fans with their dynamic athletic plays, how-did-he-see-that-opening passes and flashy dribbling skills.
They handle the rock more than any other player on the court (usually) and captivate audiences from the opening tip until the final buzzer.
Plus, the NBA is brimming over with quality floor generals.
Honing the list down to the top 10 is nearly impossible. Even after allowing the list to grow from 10 to 11 and including three honorable mentions, there are still players who I feel bad about failing to mention. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams deserve respect, even if they fall just shy of the cut thanks to a lack of track record at the professional level.
These rankings are steeped heavily in performance during the 2013-14 campaign. History does matter, but it's still largely about what these players have done for their teams this season.
Does your favorite team have a representative? Could it—gasp—even have two?
