With the 2011 NBA Draft under wraps, the casual fan now has nothing to look forward to for the next few months—that is, if a season is actually going to happen.
But for the rest of us diehard NBA fans, it is time to start gearing up for the offseason. We will follow our respective favorite teams closely while we vehemently over-analyze every impending decision our favorite GMs make in regards to our favorite lineups, contracts and our prospective free agents.
The offseason is just as exciting as the regular season because anybody who has a competitive nature wants to see their favorite teams succeed during both occasions.
Now, some diehard fans have more of a competitive nature than others, myself included. For these fans, this is not just the offseason for the cool, respected side of the NBA, but also for the geekier, more judgmental side.
Yes, I'm talking about fantasy basketball, where diehard fans and geeky statisticians unite to compete against each other in a relentless 18-week season, and where only the smartest and bravest self-made GMs make it out alive.
And with the NBA becoming a more point guard-dominated league, this was not an easy list. Here are some honorable mentions:
Brandon Jennings, Chauncey Billups, Jrue Holiday, Devon Harris, Kyle Lowry and Kemba Walker.
Without further ado, here are next season's projected top point guards.
