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.
