Top Ten Most Underrated Point Guards of All-Time


The Top Ten

1 Jason Kidd Jason Kidd

Sure people do define him as a hall of fame point guard. Sure people do acknowledge he is a great player. But what makes him underrated is he isn't discussed in the top 5 point guards of All-time conversation. You'll usually see a top 5 point guards of All-time list of
1. Magic
2. Isiah Thomas
3. Oscar Robertson
4. John Stockton
5. Steph Curry

I think it should be
1. Magic
2. Oscar Robertson
3. Steve Nash
5. Bob Cousy - 2storm

2 Fat Lever

He was pretty much Russell Westbrook before Russell Westbrook was born. He was just such a underrated Point. - 2storm

He was a triple double machine - Bradysnothing

3 Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association.

Pretty underrated. - 2storm

4 Patrick Beverley

So Beverly is really underrated. He is not even mentioned in the best defensive point guards ever conversation. Pat is probably one of the most gritty point guards ever. - 2storm

5 Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Kyrie will probably go down as one of the best point guards ever. But he is still underrated he isn't even on people's list of the top points today. - 2storm

6 Mike Conley

Being from Tennessee I might be a little biast, but still Conley doesn't even make the all star team even though he scores 20 or more points every year. - 2storm

7 Steve Francis

Really underrated - 2storm

8 Nate Archibald

Time to go on my annual "Nate Archibald rant." He is amazing. It's just he played in the dang 50's and nobody remembers him. He was the first good point guard besides Bob Cousy, who we will get to in a sec. Nate "Tiny" Archibald was so good. - 2storm

Just to clarify, he did NOT play in "the dang 50's", he started in 'the doggone 70's", just a 20-year difference, and even won an NBA championship as a team-mate of Larry Bird in the "cotton-pickin' 80's".

9 Bob Cousy Bob Cousy

I don't think Cooz is as bad as other players in terms of underating. Just like Nate he played in the 60's so yeah. He is probably the best passer ever. - 2storm

10 Deron Williams Deron Williams Deron Michael Williams is an American professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

D-Will took the jazz to the playoffs every year he was there except his rookie season. He averaged 21 and 10 in the playoffs in his sophomore year and took 2 games from the team that swept lebron james in the 2007 NBA finals. He was that good.

Peak Deron was the best point guard in the world. Dominated his arch rival(CP3) every time they played in head to head matchups. Pure skill and strength was his bread and butter.

In 2008, he did not make the all star team but made the All-NBA 2nd Team.
In 2009, he averaged 19 and 10 and took the jazz to the playoffs despite the fact that his pick and roll partner, Boozer, was out for more than half the season and he did not even make the all star team or an All-NBA team that season.
D-Will was criminally underrated.

The Contenders

11 Mario Chalmers
12 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry

No way he's underrated - Randomator

He should be #1

13 Gail Goodrich

Even though he was the team leader on his college team, taking them to 30-0 and the NCAA championship, and no matter how great he played, when he got to the Lakers, he was always overshadowed by his team's Shooting Guard- Jerry West.
