Top 10 NBA Point Guardsin 2011 and Beyond
By: Jon R Rosswww.fantazzle.com 
It’s the summer of 2011 and the CBA is having a collapse of biblical proportions, creating ascenario where every player in the NBA becomes a Free Agent. Who do you go after to run thepoint for your franchise in the coming years? Sorry Nash, Kidd and Billups but your services areno longer required here. We’re looking into the future to find the best at the point position for years to come. 
10) Raymond Felton
--Who would have thought Raymond Felton would round out this list ayear ago? Apparently Donnie Walsh, Mike D’Antoni and company did when they signed himto a two-year 15.8 million dollar contract over this past summer. Felton leads all point guardsin MPG (6th overall) logging an impressive 38.9. What makes it even more impressive is thathe’s doing it running D’Antoni’s uptempo, NBA Points Per Game leading offense. Averaging18.2 and 8.7 to go along with almost 2 steals a game he seems to be a perfect fit in New Yorkand on myfantasyteam. However, his inability to finish around the basket and shoot at a high percentage from deep is what separates him from the top of the class. 
9) Tyreke Evans
--One of only four players in history to average at least 20 points, 5 reboundsand 5 assists in his rookie campaign (Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and LeBron Jameswere the other three). Easy to see why he grabbed rookie of the year honors in the 2009-2010season. Gets to the rim at will with a quick first step and finishes. The tallest of all the guardson this list at 6’6, he can cause fits on the defensive end, when he wants to. His inability toshoot the basketball consistently hurts him at times. Evans can also tend to lack effort on thecourt and maturity off of it, dropping him to the 9 spot. 
8) Stephen Curry
--Flat out the best shooting point guard in the NBA. Hands down, period.With a quick trigger and money off the dribble he’s deadly from downtown, at 44%, and the linewhere he’s likely to be a career 90% shooter. But, it’s his under-rated ability to see the floor andplay the pick and roll that makes him so special. Where it normally takes years to master, Currystepped right in like he had been running the pick and roll his whole life. His lack of size andability to get to the line is the only thing keeping him from rising on this list. 
7) Tony Parker 
--At number 7 on our list is Tony Parker. As long as your name isn’t EvaLongoria or Brent Barry, you would love to have this guy running the show. Three time NBAChampion and 2007 Finals MVP, Parker proved to us he can play the point at a Championshiplevel. He has an extra gear, getting him into the paint, where he can score with the best of them. His shooting ability is a little below average and at 28 years of age he’s the senior citizenof this list. 
6) Russell Westbrook-
-Freakishly athletic with loads of upside. Couple his athleticism withgreat size and you can see why he’s leading all point guards in rebounding, at a shade under five a game. The only thing holding Westbrook back from being one of the greats in the NBAright now is his jump shot. His shooting percentage, .436, is much too low for someone thatgets to the rim as often as Westbrook. That said, we saw glimpses of greatness in the WorldChampionships this past summer. Westbrook took over for periods of time on a team filled withperennial All-Stars.
5) John Wall
--Another super-athletic point guard with upside through the roof. At 6’4 withlightning quickness and jump out of the gym ability, Wall should live at the line. These abilitiesshould also turn him into a shut down defender. However, his jump shot is still very raw andhe’s been known to turn the ball over at extremely high rates in the past. Even so, Wall shouldprobably be higher on this list with his talent level but we’ll let him prove it to us first. 
4) Rajon Rondo
--Rondo leads the league with 14 Assists Per Game. That’s three more per game than the next closest player, Steve Nash. He loves to get his teammates involved and isgreat at finishing around the rim. He’s a very good rebounder, making him a triple double threatevery time he steps on the court. Rondo’s huge wing span turns him into a disruptive beaston the defensive end. His shot, however, is almost laughable. Defenders
him to shoot attimes. Even with this lack of a jump shot, he was still the MVP of the Celtics championship runlast season. 
3) Derrick Rose
--Another ultra-athletic point guard with great speed and strength. Rose is oneof the best at finishing in the paint, using his patented floater to his advantage. He’s been on anoffensive tear this year, leading both the Bulls and all point guards scoring around 24 a game.Rose is still a little weak shooting from long range but his mid-range game and athletic abilitytrump his inability to shoot the long ball. 
2) Chris Paul
--Chris Paul is everyfantasyowner s dream.CP3 possesses one of the best handles and passing abilities in the NBA. He runs the pick and roll to perfection and can blowby defenders with lightning quick speed. He’s also a menace on the defensive end, averagingalmost 3 steals a game in the 2010 season. It was tough not to put Paul at number one on our list but there is one
concern. He’s coming off surgery for a torn meniscus removing the tornportion entirely. This scares some into thinking microfracture surgery may be coming sometimein the future. 
1) Deron Williams
--The point guard we covet most of all, Deron Williams. He can do it all;score, pass, rebound and he’s a great leader on the floor. It always seems as if Williams knowsexactly what his team needs. He’s a very strong guard with great finishing ability. Just likePaul, Williams runs the pick and roll to perfection. Jerry Sloan couldn’t find a better player torun his offense, and neither could we.
