Greatest NBA Point Guards
The Top Ten
This is right but everything else should go like this
2. Big O
3. John Stockton
4. Isiah Thomas
5. Jason Kidd - FootballDog61
Magic Johnson is clearly the greatest point guard of all time, if not the greatest NBA player of all time. This man led the Lakers to 5 NBA Championships in the 80's and could have won a few more if his NBA career wouldn't have been cut short. He also won 3 MVP's, 3 Finals MVP's, and became a 12 time All-Star and a Hall of Famer. - rapaddict97
Have you seen Magic Johnson pass? While Michael Jordan could make insane shots, Magic could make insane passes. Easy No. 1 - Bronson
Magic could do everything on the court, and could do it all magically - LorisMasta17
He totally deserves to be at the number two spot. He's one of the most underrated players ever. He's the guy who made Karl Malone as great as he was!
easily number 1. magic could play point guard but he is over 6:10 he is "suuposed" to play centre - nbaallstar
Easily the greatest point guard of all time, holding the records for both assists and steals. Magic had a greater supporting cast, and therefore looks much better championship wise. He was snubbed multiple times from MVP voting, and is extremely underrated. Best PG ever.
I would have love to see Magic and Isiah's numbers if they played to 40 - time would have hit them hard unlike Stockton.
Come on, he was more effective at the point guard position than Stockton. He could do the dynamic duo thing with whatever big men he happened to be paired up with (at par, if not better than Stockton). He made his team better as well as playing the role of solo game changer-give me the ball and get outta my way stuff, when the game was not the line. Clutch. 2 consecutive mvp seasons!
Steve Nash is the definition of what a true point guard should be. His passing skills are Montana magic, Court vision is superior to any athlete, Best shooter of having four years of doing a 50-40-90's stat, so he's a solid shooter, picks his shot that most likely will make, & is a beast! He may not have been a defender, but he has moments of stealing the ball & the least you won't see him is blocking someone, otherwise you can't stop his pick n roll was deadly with Stoudemire!
This guy is an absolutely brilliant point guard and still going amazingly at 38 years of age, truly the greatest point guard of all time
He has quite a technique on his foot work and body work, you'd be lucky if you saw him play in the Phoenix Suns at the time. 2x straight MVP and played in 8 all star games. This man is also a class act.
Rings count folks. This guy won it back to back. Would have been 4 possible rings if not for Bird steal and then loss to Lakers when they tried to 3 peat.
He gets a bad rap because of bad boy pistons and the media hate. But really evaluate his game. He has 2 RINGS. More than all the other PG's here besides Magic. So he should be NUMBER 2!
Totally underrated by the media and fans. Small, but could lockdown any guard while simultaneously creating plays on offense. Pretty amazing player if you ask me
Underrated. People don't understand he was the only other guy in the 80s who was at Bird & Magic's level.
A member of the Bad Boys. His team won 2 championships in a row. That's impressive. - EpicJake
Only picking him because Stockton is higher for some reason.
How did this guy not make the list initially?... Twelve-time All-Star, eleven-time member of the All-NBA Team, and one-time winner of the MVP award in fourteen seasons. He is the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire season. Robertson is the only guard in NBA history to ever average more than 10 rebounds per game, doing so three times. For his career, Robertson had 181 triple-doubles, a record that has never been approached. These numbers are even more astonishing if it is taken into account that the three-point shot did not exist when he played, which was introduced by the NBA in the 1979-80 season and benefits sharpshooting back court players. Maybe only Magic can challenge him as the greatest PG ever. And, I thought MJ was a SG.
Big O averaged a triple double for a span of 5 seasons... Easily the best point guard argument between him and magic and stockton. But I think stockton is third in this list and the rest doesn't matter..
Number 10? You guys know nothing about basketball whatsoever. Dennis Johnson? Nate Archibald? Lenny Wilkens? Wow.
No. 6? This is disrespect. The best scoring point guard, the best shooting point guard, good passer, legendary handles, better than at least Stockton and Nash. 2x MVP. 3x Champ. 49683889x 3 point records. Top 3.
I don't think number eight is good judgment. All he does is shoot threes and even for him that isn't a high percentage shot
He has to be at least number ten. Incredible handles lights out shooting. Great player
Yeh he has got god handles
Kidd should be in the top three. I mean it. Look at his numbers: over 100 triple doubles, 2nd all time in steals and assists, also the guard with the most rebounds. He makes smart plays and has improved his shooting like no one else. He is also the only NBA player with 18,000 points, 11000 assists, 7000 rebounds, and 2200 steals. This guy is a beast. He also got a ring. Most points guard in the top ten don't (Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, etc. )
He is old but he can still do great assists. He is the better than Fisher and Steve Nash!
Three words true point guard
12.6 points,8.7 assists,6.3 rebounds,1.9 steals
Him and magic and iverson are my favorite 3
CP3 is a talented and fun player to watch. He has nice handles, jumpshot, and layup. Other than that, he is known for coming up short in the playoffs. He is prone to committing turnovers in high pressure situations and very often passes when he feels like it. He a good player but he might not ever win a chip.
Awesome pointgaurd and defiantly best current one
CP3 is better than all
Not a true point guard, the man even said so himself, but deserves higher. AI could pass the ball well and was a great team leader. He also performed well in clutch time and led a sorry team to the FINALS! - bishop.moore07
He is better than Stockton he should be higher and has the best handles in the NBA
In his prime the best player under 6" ever can score like nobody else and has handles of a streetballer only thing missing is his attitude but in some of his best seasons he managed to facilitate too definite top 5
Think of the crossover people - powerwill12
That idiot whose username is just a bunch of numbers is completely wrong about rondo. He helped the bulls make it to the playoffs and helped the pelicans do the same
He made ray allen leave the celtics and his chemistry sucks and he ruins every team and he can't shoot - 9713524179
He's too high great player though
Mans Look like a turtle
Bob should be number 3 - 2storm
Top ten at least
I'd take him over Stockton and Nash because of his ring. And that game winner in the finals.
One of the decent point guards of the nba
He is the best dribbler ever
Hi should be in top 10
He is the most explosive point guard of all time. He should at least be in the top 10. - Bronson
Youngest MVP in NBA history!
Best player to ever step foot on a court. Simple.
18.9 points,6.1 assists,5.9 rebounds,1.9 steals
At least in the top 10. See it just proves the San Antonio Spurs are always under rated. - westofohio
PARKER > RONDO are you kidding me?
How is rondo in front of him?
Tony Parker deserves at least No. 2 on this list - Hun20ter
16.3 points,6.7 assists,3.9 rebounds,1.8 steals
He averaged a 31 point triple double in the modern nba. That hasn't happened since Oscar Robertson, and stats were very inflated then.
Russel should be at least top 20 one of the best in his generation
Yet it's been proven multiple times that when he's not on the floor the team loses. - RobertWisdom
Hey it's the most hated player of all time! - RobertWisdom
How is Kyle Lowry ahead of Russ?
This guy is top 5 point guard of all time. He averaged the 5th most points per game in nba history. Even the nba logo has him in the picture. BUT, STEVE BLAKE IS IN FRONT OF HIM
27.0 points,6.7 assists,5.8 rebounds,2.6 steals,
Love Lenny Wilkens
Easily top 10 all time. Look at the numbers if you are too young to remember him.
Most underrated player in NBA history
Late 80's early 90's this guy was the best!
Clearly Underrated. - RobertWisdom
HOW CAN YOU PUT TIM HARDAWAY THAT LOW. WITHOUT HIM KYRIE AND CURRY WOULD BE NOTHING. - 9713524179
That 3 against the rockets
He is my idol huhuhuhu
Another criminally underrated player. - RobertWisdom
I would vote for A.I, but Jason needs to be a lot higher... - allen28
White chocolate best handle ever
Handles! He will cross you up
How can the current best PG in the NBA not be in the top ten? Ridiculous. - Freakazoid
Amazing no look passes and he gives so many al-hoops to the team. He and kevin love are unstopable. HELL YA!
He's gonna be the next great Laker as well as the next great passing point guard in the NBA.
