The last few years have seemed to be a high-water mark for great point guards. Not in recent memory have there been so many who can really dominate a game.
However, it has created a bit of a talent gap between the upper-echelon guys and the less fortunate, so I couldn't in good conscience leave these guys off the list to be associated with the rest of the scrubs.
Kidd did something remarkable by reinventing himself as a great three-point shooter late in his career to make him a viable scoring threat, but clearly his best years are behind him.
Felton broke out this year, becoming one of the Knicks' best players not named Amar'e. And that was made clear when his inclusion almost put a halt on the Carmelo Anthony deal.
After an impressive rookie season, I'm very excited to see what Wall can do as the talent around him (hopefully) continues to improve.
Two years ago Parker easily would have cracked the top five, and his game hasn't really changed much. It just goes to show how much the league has grown at this position recently.
Putting him out of the top five really represents a changing of the guard (no pun intended) at this position. It actually pains me not to put him up there, but the fact is he's getting up there in age while other young stars are exploding.
