Top 10 Point Guards in the NBA

1. Deron Williams 6-3 Utah

Analysis: Although Chris Paul has better numbers, the Jazz usually are the better team. Also, when Paul and Williams match up Williams usually comes out on top. But this a very arguable topic.

2. Chris Paul 6-0 New Orleans

Analysis: Puts up 20 points and 10 assists every game. Would be number 1 if he were to have more success in the playoffs.

3. Chauncey Billups 6-4 Denver

Analysis: Really difficult to remember to remember the last Chauncey wasn't in the Eastern Conference finals. He is the true definition of a point guard. He sets the offense up, controls the tempo of the game, and his a great defender.

4. Tony Parker 6-2 San Antonio

Analysis: Averaged 22 pts and almost 7 assists. Stepped up as Manu Ginobili was out.

5. Jason Kidd 6-4 Dallas

Analysis: Still averages near 10 assists and shot over 40% from the 3pt line. His improved play towards the end of the season shows he not quite at the end of his career.

6. Rajon Rondo 6-1 Boston

Analysis: Had 7 10+ assists games during the playoffs. He clearly was the best Celtic during the playoffs averaging nearly triple double.

7. Steve Nash 6-2 Phoenix

Analysis: Averaged almost 16 points and nearly 10 assists. But his defensive shortcomings which were exaggerated before, have become fact. Not making the playoffs moves the 2 time MVP down the list a few years after the was untouchable.

8. Devin Harris 6-3 New Jersey

Analysis: Averaged 21 points and 7 assists. Lack of success keeeps him low on this list.

9. Derrick Rose 6-4 Chicago

Analysis: Showed potential during the regular season and the post season. Look for him to be a top 5 point guard in years to come.

10. Andre Miller 6-3 Philadelphia

Analysis: Brought the Sixers back to the playoffs. He is veteran leader and probably the most underrated point guard.
