Rondo Is Ranked 3rd Best Point Guard

Rondo finally found some folks shorter than him.

Kelly Dwyer of Ball Don't Lie has a grand time ranking each position's top 30 players.  He started off with the point guards and pegged Rondo at # 3 behind Chris Paul and Deron Williams.

3. Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics (last year: eighth) A big jump for Rajon, who could be incredibly overrated or playing the role of the point guard at a level that my tiny brain just can't understand. I'll split the difference, and hand him the top-five spot.

Yeah, that sounds about right.  Rounding out the top 5 are Steve Nash and Derrick Rose.  Nash would appear to be on the downside of his career but he can still play.  Rose is on the way up and along with Russell Westbrook (#7) will likely be good benchmarks to compare Rondo with at similar stages in their careers.  Or rather, Rondo is the standard bearer until one of the others can make it to the Finals.

It will be interesting to see where Dwyer ranks Pierce, Garnett, Allen, and the O'Neal's.
