Top Five NBA Point Guards
From Steve Nash to Jason Kidd, Kidzworld ranks the top point guards in the NBA. See who made our list!
#5. Best Point Guard - Baron DavisThis might be a questionable selection for some of you. Many could argue that Chauncey Billups or Chris Paul deserves to be here more than Baron. Sure, the Golden State Warriors guard's career has been marred by injuries, but when he is healthy he is one of the top point guards. As he displayed in last year's playoffs - he is strong, quick, and athletic. He can also break anyone down off the dribble and he can shoot from long range. If Baron stays injury-free this year, watch out!
#4. Best Point Guard - Deron WilliamsDeron Williams proved during last year's playoffs that he is one of the game's elite point guards. A great decision maker and tough-as-nails competitor, Williams is a lot more mature than his age. At just 24 years old, Williams has all the tools to take the Utah Jazz to a championship in the near future. Who knows, he might become better than the last great Jazz point guard, John Stockton.
#3. Best Point Guard - Jason KiddJason Kidd might be the best passer since Magic Johnson. The 6'4" New Jersey Nets star is lightning quick and has the ability to serve up some exciting passes. In 2003, he led the Nets to the NBA Finals, where they ultimately lost to the Lakers. At 33 years old, though, you wonder how many years Kidd has left in him.
#2. Best Point Guard - Tony ParkerLast year, Tony Parker helped lead the San Antonio Spurs to an NBA Championship. Parker’s game gives opponents trouble because he is so freaking fast. His speed allows him to get easy layups. He is also a terrific passer who has the ability to lead the league in assists. But the best quality about the guard from France is that he is a winner. And his ability to make his team win puts him near the top of the list!
#1. Best Point Guard - Steve NashThere is no doubt that Steve Nash is currently the best point guard in the league. The reigning two-time NBA Most Valuable Player has done just about everything for the Phoenix Suns. He led the league in assists last season and he makes players around him better. He is a fearless competitor and a proven winner. But his time on top might not last for too much longer - he is 32 years old. If the Suns are going to win a championship with Nash, then they better do it in the next few years!
