Greatest NBA Point Guardssturner23
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

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.
All time leader in assists and steals.V 9 Comments
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.
Only picking him because Stockton is higher for some reason.V 7 Comments
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. - EpicJakeV 4 Comments
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
Steve Trash deserved ZERO of his MVPs - 9713524179V 13 Comments
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
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
Chris paul is NOT better than curry
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
He's goodV 3 Comments
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
A.I. was a shooting guard. Not a point guard. - phillysportsV 5 Comments
Bob should be number 3 - 2storm
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
Rondo is the bestV 2 Comments
16.3 points,6.7 assists,3.9 rebounds,1.8 steals
At least in the top 10. See it just proves the San Antonio Spurs are always under rated. - westofohio
How is rondo in front of him?
Tony Parker deserves at least No. 2 on this list - Hun20ter
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.
Lead his team to a ECF as the youngest MVP in NBA history with no all star teammates, to fall short to, in my opinion, the best team in the 21st century in the stacked 3 future hall of famers Miami Heat with Lebron, Wade, and Bosh. With the bulls so dependent on Rose to score it made it very easy for the Miami Heat to double him and get the ball out of his hands. I'll put MVP Rose in top 5 PG easily.V 2 Comments
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 HIMV 1 Comment
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
Hi should be in top 10
One of the bestV 3 Comments
Love Lenny Wilkens
HOW CAN YOU PUT TIM HARDAWAY THAT LOW. WITHOUT HIM KYRIE AND CURRY WOULD BE NOTHING. - 9713524179
Handles! He will cross you up
How can the current best PG in the NBA not be in the top ten? Ridiculous. - Freakazoid
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
How is Kyle Lowry ahead of Russ?
Top 10 triple doubleV 2 Comments
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!
I would vote for A.I, but Jason needs to be a lot higher... - allen28
White chocolate best handle ever
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.
