This has been the week of the point guard. With all the Rajon Rondo trade talk, Chris Paul trade talk, Rondo-for-Paul trade talk, and Deron Williams planning to opt out of his Nets deal, point guards have dominated the NBA landscape.
One of the most heated arguments of the week was over who would you rather have, Rondo or CP3? With that in mind, I decided to rank my Top 10 point guards in the NBA right now.
These rankings are about who is the best. Straight up. Not who’s the best fantasy player or who has the most long-term potential. This is about who I’d pick for my NBA squad if I had a game tonight:
10. Brandon Jennings – One of my personal favorite players on this list. [Check out “The Official Brandon Jennings Lockout Mixtape“] I absolutely love his game and he’s a great guy. He’s a phenomenal passer with a great handle and a good shot and and he’s super athletic. The only things keeping him from being at an All-Star level are consistency and shot selection. Jennings averaged five 3-point attempts per game and hit 32% of them last season – with an overall FG% of 39. In fairness to Jennings, though, he’s got to shoot. It’s not like he’s surrounded by weapons in Milwaukee.
