Prior to the start of the 2009-10, let’s take a look at the best point guards in the NBA. While the league is filled with a lot of talent at the position, these point guards are the best of the best in the NBA.
5. Chauncey Billups, Denver Nuggets
When it comes to leadership and leading by example, Chauncey Billups might be the best point guard in the NBA. He knows how to win and uses his strength to dominate the action.
4. Steve Nash, Phoenix Suns
Although he’s getting older, Steve Nash is still a handful. He’s a deadly shooter who is one of the top two passers in the NBA. With the Suns reverting to the run-and-gun style, Nash should have another very good season.
3. Deron Williams, Utah Jazz
Deron Williams can do it all. When healthy and at the top of his game, he shows as much talent as any point guard in the league. The next step for him is to be consistently great.
2. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs
Out of all the point guards on this list, Tony Parker has the best history in terms of winning. His elite speed causes headaches and his passing is underrated.
1. Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets
Right now, it’s not even very close. Chris Paul is far and away the best point guard in the NBA. He mixes skill with competitiveness at a level that is difficult to match in NBA history.
