Top 5 point guards in western conference
It is very difficult to win in the NBA without a coach on the floor and that means the point guard has become even more valuable in today’s game. Here is a small list of the top 5 point guards in the Western Conference right now.
Tyreke Evans- Sacramento Kings- Last Season 17.8 ppg, 5.6 assists
This versatile combo guard is capable of imposing his size and will on smaller point guards every game. If he can stay healthy, his ceiling could be incredible. As he continues to grow into the position, he is going to be a force in the NBA for years to come.
Steve Nash- Phoenix Suns- Last Season 14.7 ppg, 11.4 assists
He may have lost a step, but his mind is continuing to expand on the floor. He is an efficient offensive player who really understands how to control each game he is a part of. You can’t say enough about his leadership on the floor.
Tony Parker- San Antonio Spurs- Last Season 17.5 ppg, 6.6 assists
It is fun to watch him change tempos, pull from midrange with ease, improve his 3 point shooting and be a floor general each game. He gives his ball club a chance to win each game.
Chris Paul- Los Angeles Clippers- Last Season 15.8 ppg, 9.8 assists
He probably is the most competitive point guard in the entire NBA and you have to love his ability pass the ball. Also, he is a tremendous defender who is going to cause havoc for the opposing point guard each game. CP3 is definitely going to make some noise this season.
Russell Westbrook- Oklahoma City Thunder- Last Season 21.9 ppg, 8.2 assists
He is arguably the most athletic point guard in the game and since the team will run even more this season on offense, he should be even more dangerous with a full head of steam. He is unstoppable when he is focused and playing unselfish ball.
