Derrick Rose, Kemba Walker

Kemba Walker had quite the game on Wednesday night even though his Hornets couldn’t get the win against the visiting Bulls. First, he tripped up Nikola Mirotic so bad even MJ was laughing. Then, he dropped 17 points in the third quarter to keep pace when Derrick Rose put up 10 points of his own. But before he did any of those things, he sent back a Rose drive in the opening session.

After Chris Bosh hit a tough baseline fadeaway to put the Miami Heat up one with 31 seconds left, Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson just missed far easier shots on the game’s final possession that would have given their team the win.

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 »
