Point Guard Era Is Starting

If you look around the NBA at point guards, you are going to see a bunch of top notch point guards. 2010 is the start of what seems like the biggest point guard era ever. We have young players who are producing at top levels and even some old-timers who are still contributing heavily to their team. Rajon Rondo is lighting up the assist score board (14.3 apg). John Wall is a beast on defense (3.3 spg). Derrick Rose has been explosive in scoring this year (25.2 ppg) 


Top 6 point guards in the NBA:

6. John Wall Washington Wizards 

This 1st pick of the 2010 draft had what most other picks had: Hype. John Wall lived up to this hype in the first month or so of the season. He is lightning quick leading the league with 3.3 steals per game. He backs that up with 18 points per game and 10 assists per game. Double- Double in you first NBA season already, not bad John Wall.

5. Russell Westbrook Oklahoma City Thunder

Westbrook has been so under rated over the past year because of the USA superstar on his team. He is quietly keeping his team alive at 8-4 (Nov. 20). He averages 24 points and 8 assists per game to go along with 5.4 rebounds per game. He has great strength and is one of the most explosive people on in the league for a point guard.

4. Deron Williams Utah Jazz

Williams has been one of those players who keeps beasting year after year. He backs that up this year with 22 PPG and almost 10 APG. Deron also commands the boards with a great point guard stat, 4.5 RPG. I am impressed with the leadership of Williams even after Boozer left and Jefferson (Former Celtic!) came in.

3. Rajon Rondo Boston Celtics

Don't get mad at me Celtics fans. I know you want a guy who is averaging a crazy 14.3 assists per game to go along with 11.2 points per game and almost 5 rebounds per game. He is also near the top of the league with 2.5 steals per game. The thing that stops him from being #1 or #2 is his shooting (Shooting, Shooting, Shooting! Same with some other guys but yet their still on the list). Well Rondo doesn't have strength like D-Rose to overcome a non-shooting ability. Also, those assists come from having multiple future hall-of-famers on the team.

2. Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls

This kid is averaging around 25 PPG and a good, solid 10 or so APG. He has the greatest amount of strength and muscle out of anyone for PG in the NBA. He is leading this Bulls team that lost Boozer and reacted to the new defensive game plan.

1. Chris Paul New Orleans Hornets

This kid has 18 PPG, 10 APG and 3 SPG. He is leading the Hornets to a one loss record so far. He is an MVP potential player and that is all to say.
