NBA STARTING POINT GUARDS RANKINGS 2017

This is my own opinion.

THIS IS BASED OFF OF THE 2017 SEASON.

1. Russell Westbrook – This season Russell Westbrook is my MVP. He lead a team to a 6 seed with zero help. That’s pretty impressive already. Not to mention he was the second player in NBA history to average a triple-double at the end of the year and he even broke the record for the most triple-doubles in a season. Although he might not be the best point guard overall, he was definitely the best in the 2016-17 season.

2. James Harden – Just like Westbrook, this man’s a beast. He may not be the 2nd best overall PG in the league, but he was the 2nd best PG this season.

3. Stephen Curry – Many people are saying Curry had a down season. That is not true at all. Curry has two MVPs over his career so when he’s not winning MVP, people say he’s having a bad year. This year Curry averaged about 25.3 PPG, 6.6 APG, and 4.5 RPG, and you want to tell me that’s a bad year!?! Although Curry was not the best PG this season, he is still consistently the best PG in the league. So everyone stop saying Curry’s not elite, he is.

4. John Wall – This might come as a surprise to some, but John Wall is very underrated. In my opinion, he is the best PG in the eastern conference. This season he averaged a double-double. Not to mention, he is super clutch. After coming off double knee surgery last summer, he has had a fantastic season.

5. Kyrie Irving – Kyrie is a dominant point guard at only 25 years old. His offensive ability and handles are amazing. By watching Kyrie play you would think he is a veteran, but no, he’s only 25. He plays amazing with Lebron and is a major reason the Cavs are as successful as they were this season.

6. Chris Paul – Although getting up there in age, in terms of professional basketball, CP3 is a great team leader on and off the court. He can make players around him much better.

7. Isaiah Thomas- Isaiah Thomas will soon be a top 10 player in the league. He already cracked the top 10 on my list of point guards but will soon be a top 10 player in the league. He lead the Celtics to the number 1 seed in the east (although everyone knows the Cavs are a better team) and was able to lead them to the Eastern Conference Finals. His story is also great as many people doubted him when he came into the league and was the last pick in the draft given his height.
