The point guard position has been considered the most important in basketball. Point guards have several responsibilities such as distributing the ball, calling the plays, managing touches, among other things.
An increasing number of point guards have also taken scoring into their hands. A few even take pride in their excellent rebounding.
This is a list of these point guards and who is expected to be great in the upcoming 09-10 NBA season. Since team records and playoff positioning can never be correctly predicted, players that play for teams that are expected to be bad are not hindered. Interestingly, when a team has an elite point guard his team usually follows suit.
As always, there will be some debate and controversy; but that is the fun part.
