8 Point Guards Who Could Lead Their Teams' on Deep Playoff Runs.
Danny Moloshok

The NBA is in the golden age of point guards. More than half the playoff teams poised for a deep run are led or co-led by elite-caliber quarterbacks who can both score and pass.

Of course, not all teams are. The Miami Heat are led by LeBron James, a small forward, and Dwyane Wade, a shooting guard. The Indiana Pacers are led by Paul George and David West, both forwards. Such teams aren’t included in these rankings.

The players are not ranked according to their skill, because being the best player doesn't equate with having the best chance at a deep playoff run.

Rather, they are listed in order of their teams' chances of getting to the finals, based on John Hollinger’s playoff odds.
