Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe, Deron Williams

Bench guards Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas led the Suns to a 112-104 win over the visiting Nets last night with 28 and 21 points, respectively. Because they were playing so well, Eric Bledsoe played less than half the game. Still, on this high screen by Markieff Morris, his move on Deron Williams and mid-air switching of hands was borderline Jordanesque. Read More »

The Top 20 Point Guards In The NBA Right Now

Chris Paul, Stephen Curry

To survive in today’s NBA, you need a good point guard. You just do. Of the teams that finished last season with the eight best records, six of them either had an All-Star point guard or LeBron James. The other two teams were the Indiana Pacers (who, without the stability that a good point guard brings, fell apart down the stretch) and the Houston Rockets (eliminated in the first round).

The point guard on a basketball court is like the quarterback on the gridiron. He’s the general, the leader, the boss.

The NBA in 2014 is littered with talented point guards. And just like the “Who’s the best quarterback in the NFL?” arguments, few NBA debates spark disagreement like the “Who’s the best point guard in the NBA?” debate does.

Delusional Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant fans notwithstanding, we’re all generally in agreement that James is, hands down, the best basketball player in the world. The point guard debate is a different monster. There are four or five different guys that, depending on whom you ask, can be considered the NBA’s alpha dog point guard.

The good news is that I’m here to finally settle the debate. Here are the NBA’s top 20 point guards. Read More »

Report: Fully Healthy, Deron Williams Plans On Resuming Superstar Status

(photo. NBATattoos.Tumblr.com)

The cause of Deron Williams’ basketball NBA nadir was no secret. The Brooklyn Nets’ supposed franchise cornerstone played on injured ankles in each of the last two seasons, culminating in the most disappointing campaign of his career in 2013-2014. When it was announced in late May that Williams had double surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle and a loose bone fragment from his right, it hardly spelled a comeback for a player many once considered the league’s best point guard.
