Top 10 Point Guards in the NBA
With the NBA season just a few days away, it looks like its time to rank the top point guards in the NBA.
With a major shake-up offseason, let's take a look at the top 10 point guards in the NBA.
10. Jason Kidd
Jason Kidd finally got his first ring in three attempts last season and has continued to prove that his game is still very good.
With a three-point shot which has been lacking his first 17 seasons, Kidd showed his game is still ever evolving.
Based off his defense, passing, and shooting Kidd sits at No. 10.
9. Brandon Jennings
Brandon Jennings is continuing to elevate his game every season and has worked his way into my top 10 NBA point guards.
Jennings is currently becoming one of the league's best guards and is still very young.
I can see Brandon Jennings work his way into the top five in the next few years.
8. John Wall
John Wall had an amazing rookie season and has shown the world why he was the 2010 No. 1 overall pick.
Had Blake Griffin not gotten hurt in his rookie season, John Wall was the clear cut for rookie of the year last season.
John Wall has proven that he is going to be in the league's elite very soon.
7. Stephan Curry
Stephan Curry may be ranked a little high here for some people, but I believe he will put up numbers beyond many of these players with Monta Ellis' current legal troubles.
Don't get me wrong, Monta is one of my favorite players, but the man takes so many shots.
Curry has a very dependable jump shot, he can get in the lane, and has great court vision. Curry is talented to be No. 7 on this list.
6. Rajon Rondo
In my opinion Rajon Rondo has been over-hyped since the 2009 playoffs versus Chicago, and he ran into a reality check last season.
Rondo cannot shoot. He can't score. His passes aren't even that great, but I will give him the numbers.
He does get assists and he is definitely the best defensive point guard in the league. For that reason and the fact he puts up a double double on average, I put him at six on this list.
5. Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook is turning into one of the best point guards in the NBA.
He has gone from around the 10-11 stage to top five in the league.
I also think if he can develop a shot and learns to accept that the offense goes through Kevin Durant, he can rise up on this list.
4. Steve Nash
Steve Nash is still in the top five in the NBA.
It seems like this guy is going to be this awesome until he dies. Nash continues to put up double-doubles even without any talent surrounding him.
This teams win games through Nash. Nash is a monster.
3. Chris Paul
Now in LA, I believe Chris Paul is going to have the time of his life playing alongside Blake Griffin, Caron Butler and Chauncey Billups.
Paul is going to experience a new situation where he doesn't have to do absolutely everything.
Paul is an amazing point guard, he just doesn't have all the skills of the top two.
2. Deron Williams
Deron Williams is probably the most well-rounded point guard in the league.
Williams can shoot the long ball, play defense, drive, dunk, and make those around him better.
D-Will is looking good in New Jersey and I believe will continue to produce for the next few years.
1. Derrick Rose
From the moment he said "Why can't I be MVP?" I knew Derrick Rose was something special.
He set out and proved to everyone that he deserved to be the MVP. Rose was basically his entire team and was clearly the best player last season.
Rose is something very special and will be a multiple MVP award winner—something I don't believe any other current point guard will achieve.
