The level of talent in the NBA has always been a bit shocking for me, ever since I started watching as a small child.
Every year it seemed there would be more and more faces to watch for. A new seven-foot center on the block, a shooting guard that seemed to torch the opposition, a forward that couldn't miss the three-ball or a point man that seemed to have eyes in the back of his head. No matter how much I was impressed one year, it felt like the bar was raised as soon as the next season began.
Sometimes in the NBA a particular position gets a rather unusual surge in talent, as many prominent players of that position rise to stardom at nearly the same time. This always makes things fun to watch, as it truly brings the best out of each competitor, and you can see firsthand who the best of them is. Over the last two years or so, this has been the case for the point guard position.
Just a few short years ago, it appeared that Chris Paul and Deron Williams were in a class of their own. While they still reside in the top tier, they are no longer alone. Not even close for that matter. This league has seen an invasion of top-flight point guards, who seem determined to leave their stamp on the game of basketball. Now there are several guards who prove on a nightly basis that they deserve to be in the conversation of the slickest disher out there.
The following is a power rankings I have put together to give you a little insight on the league's best point guard assist men. It's not judged entirely on assists however, so anyone looking for that can simply check the assist leaderboard.
