My Top 10 Active NBA Point Guards

1. Chris Paul - He can shoot and pass. That Hornets team would be nothing without him.
2. Derrick Rose - Carried the Bulls this year. One of my MVP candidates.
3. Deron Williams - Great passer, not as great of a shooter as the top two two though.
4. Russell Westbrook - He's been a great part of the Thunder's success this year. He just doesn't want to pass sometimes though.
5. Steve Nash - He's still really good. Although, he's no longer a great scorer he's still a top 3 passer and he runs the Suns.
6. Rajon Rondo - As a Celtics fan, I think he's the best passer in the league but he's flat out horrible from any shooting range and he's had a fair share of horrible games.
7. Stephen Curry - A great scorer. He's still a little too young to be at the top though.
8. Tony Parker - He's had a nice year but I just don't think that he's as good as he used to be.
9. Chauncey Billups - Same thing as Parker. Only thing is that the Spurs are 1st and the Nuggets are 8th.
10. Raymond Felton - Most improved player of the year. Stoudamire and him are reviving the Knicks.

Honorable: Aaron Brooks


Top 10 Active Point Guards

When I made my list, I took into account what each player brings on the court, and what they bring to the team.

1. Chris Paul- he is the new orleans franchise
2. Deron Williams - take him over Jerry Sloan nine times outta ten
3. Russell Westbrook - they won't be saying "he's one year away" no more
4. Derrick Rose - taken his game to a whole new level
5. Steve Nash - the best passer in the game
6. Rajon Rondo - this little pest can do everything except shoot consistently
7. Steph Curry - giving his daddy a run for his money
8. Raymond Felton - hallelujah Big Apple
9. Tony Parker - would be higher if popovich played him more
10. Chauncey Billups - his name is in trade talks, but he still got it

Honorable: Jason Kidd


Nice counter. I can't agree with Raymond Felton being as good at Tony Parker though. Felton is averaging 17.2 points a game and 9 assists and Tony Parker is averaging 17.3 points a game and 6.7 assists. Although Felton has the upper hand on assists, Tony has had a really tough year wit the divorce from Eva Longoria and the Spurs still have the best record in the NBA by far. As good as Felton (and how improved the Knicks) has been this year, I'll give Tony the benefit of the doubt and put him up ahead.

I liked your honorable mention of Jason Kidd. I was thinking of Kidd but i decided to go with Aaron Brooks because he is just a lot younger than Kidd right now and he's more of a dangerous scorer. Kidd might still be the passer in the league but he's stepped down more as a scorer and he only averages 8 points a game while Brooks averages 12. Brooks and the Rockets have had a down year but he's still a young star. I was also thinking about Devin Harris as an Honorable Mention but I guess you can't give him that title because of how bad the Nets have been again this year. Also, I don't really consider Harris to be a pure Point Guard anyway. Thats my 2nd argument.


Forfeited Turn


Others who could be honorable mentions: Baron Davis, Andre Miller, & Jameer Nelson. Although Davis was much better in Golden State than he is in LA. he's still a top 15 point guard. Andre Miller has led the Blazers this year. They've had no Brandon Roy, no Marcus Camby, and the roster is overall very young and unexperienced. Jameer Nelson has had a nice season but the Magic aren't going anywhere. Those guys are probably my top 3 extra honorable mentions to round out my top 15.


The reason I believe that Raymond Felton is better than Tony Parker is because of signing witth the Knicks. Felton runs that system just as well, but not better than, Steve Nash did in Pheonix. The only true superstar Felton has to dish therock to is Amare, where Tony Parker has Manu Ginobili, and the best power forward in NBA history in Tim Duncan. If you take out both players from there respective teams, George Hill could be the point guard for the Spurs. If Felton leaves, a guy named Tony Douglas would fill that void. I believe that Tony Parker does not bring anything special to his team. He is one of the fastest players in the NBA and gets to the basket a lot, but George Hill does that, plus shoot. Felton is better than Tony Parker, because he has less to work with, and this conversation would be entirely different if Felton had been in New York from the start.

The reason I believe that Russell Westbrook is better than Derrick Rose is becuase he can do it all. He is the only player in the league that scores 22 points, dishes 8 assists, and grabs 5 rebounds PER GAME. The only player that comes close to that is LeBron James.

thank you for not having Rajon Rondo in the top 5!

Your welcome. Celtics fans who think he is great are dumb. He has no shooting range outside of the close paint. He turns over the ball a ton too. He's not bad but right now he just isn't top 5. He should really work on his shot in the off season.

Thanks to singhisking123 for accepting the challenge.

February 15, 2011  08:25 PM ET

Wow, no vote.

February 15, 2011  08:43 PM ET

Rose... number 4? Me is Leaning left, unless king can pull an Ace of Spades from his arse.

February 15, 2011  09:52 PM ET

lmfao @ steph curry being ahead of tony parker.

Seriously Derrick Rose at #4? I would take Rose of CP3 any day.

February 15, 2011  10:53 PM ET

PatsFan, do you watch bsaketball?

February 15, 2011  10:56 PM ET

Rajon Rondo is absolutely a top five point guard. Rondo doesnt need to be a shooter from outside, when he can get to the hole and distribute AT WILL. Plus this season he is taking and making ALOT more midrange shots.

How can the NBA assist leader not be a freaking top five point guard?

How hard is it to lead the league in assists when you're playing on a team that stacked?

Look at assist to turnover ratio. CP3 is the best PG in the league. And he can score at will like Rose but his is a distributor. And CP3 is a ball hawk on defense. And Deron Williams is #2.

February 16, 2011  01:15 PM ET

this list is pathetic. You realize Rondo is shooting %50 from the field right? that is higher than Chris Paul....just saying. Your an idiot

Your an idiot. Don't act like his shooting % means he has found a jump shot. His free throw percent being lower then Dwight Howard and Shaq gives you an indication of just how terrible Rondo's shooting is.

February 16, 2011  02:26 PM ET

Ok, Rondo as much as I hate him and the Celtics, IS a top 5 pg!! I think right now Deron Williams and Rose are 1 & 2 you can switch them any way you want but I give Deron a slight edge because besides Millsap there is really not much else on that team and he has them playing at a high level....plus he got a coach to quit after waht 20 something years of coaching that team, that's the ultimate assist in itself!!

February 16, 2011  03:34 PM ET

Rondo is by far the best defensive and passing PG in the NBA. That should merit top 3.
