The shooting guard position is one that is always changing and evolving, from Jerry West to Kobe Bryant, the two spot has been asked to do so many different things.
It was once primarily a position for shooters and defenders to take their spots on the floor and keep a hard nose on their defenders.
Then, Michael Jordan came along and revolutionized basketball, and now the two-guard has to do all of that plus be uber-athletic and high-flying.
It's probably not the most important position in the game (I would give that to either the point guard or center, depending on the era), but it can definitely be a game changer.
So, for your entertainment and viewing convenience, I have compiled a list of the top 50 shooting guards in NBA history. I hope you enjoy it.
