What defines a great point guard?
Do you have to be a pass-first floor general in order to be an effective one? How important is outside shooting ability? Is it optimal to push tempo or consistently settle into a half-court offense?
These are all difficult questions to answer with certainty.
Personally, I prefer point guards with the balance to create for themselves and their teammates. We all expect PGs to distribute the rock and keep their teammates in rhythm, but it's an added bonus when floor generals can force opposing defenses to account for their scoring ability.
As far as my rankings go, I'm placing the most emphasis on the current season, but considering the previous couple of years as well. Obviously rookies like Stephen Curry and Tyreke Evans will not be punished for lack of a track record.
There will be honorable mentions, No. 14 down to No. 11, followed by No. 10, and so on.
In regards to decision-making, I'll do my best to explain my rationale on each and every slide.
That said, let's get it poppin'...
