Chris paul is one of the best point guards. But then again everyone has their opinion who cares who's better at this or that just have your best b-ball player and like it
He should definitaly be higher than rondo he has the drives but can shoot plus gets Moore assists with worse teammates
Chris Paul is an amazing player and should be up in the top 20! he doesn't deserve to be down here! he scores points and assists with style! he deserves better.More comments about Chris Paul
BOB COUSY IS MR. BASKETBALL. HIS EXPERTISE IN SCORING, PASSING, SETING UP
PLAYS, AND SKILLS HAS NOT BEEN SURPASSED BY ANYONE. RAJON RONDO IS THE ONLY ONE I'VE SEEN THAT MAY DO IT. THE RES ARE GOOD IN SOME AREAS BUT NOT ALL AREAS LIKE THE COUZ
Sd be way further up the list why is earl boykins ahead of him is it because hes short (sympathy)
revolutionized passing, led league in assists for 8 straight yearsMore comments about Bob Cousy
Any one who says John would have been nothin with out Karl (or the other way around) should be shot. Best point guard of all time. Most assists ever, most steals ever, best shorts ever.
John Stockton at 29 is a joke. Easily in the top 10 to play the game, probably top 5. Behind Jordan, Magic, Wilt and Jabbar in my opinion.
Are you kidding me! You put Stockton at 31? This is the most ridiculous list I have ever seen. You really do not know basketball. Nobody will ever break the two records that he holds.More comments about John Stockton
He is my favourite. Is the best dunker ever and is the best after MJ.
HE WAS THE BEST WHEN HE WAS YOUNG. Now he is old he can't perform as well and because he is such a high flyer he is having problems with his knees. He was an awesome dunker and shooter and deserves to be in at least the top 10.
Vince Carter is the best better than Kobe or Lebron James maybe better than Michael Jordan the dunk master Vinsanity
He should be up by 50 places at the least! Have you seen this guy play - he has raw talent, has a great jump shot and can fly!
RUSSELL WESTBROOK IS BETTER THAN HALF THE PLAYERS HE SHOULD BE UP WAY BETTER THAN JOHN WALL UPDATE LIST AND ACTUALLY WATCH THUNDER GAME
Russell Westbrook should be number one of the yearMore comments about Russell Westbrook
Respectable player of the San Antonio Spurs for many years.
FIRST OFF READ A BASKETBALL STAT BOOK
LOOK AT NUMBER OF GAMES PLAYED
LOOK AT YEARS PLAYED
LOOK AT REAL CONSISTENCY
HONDO BEST WHITE MAN ON THE COURT
NO DRUGS, NO B.S. oFF THE COURT JUST
REAL SHARP! HEADS UP! PLAY-MAKING
BASKETBALL... HECK EVEN LARRY BIRD
learned how to be a play maker through HONDO'S
SELFLESS style. LOOK AT THE REAL NUMBERS
NASH has the makings of the same thing... That is tne same
selflessness. TEAM PLAYERS are rare... Sounds strange however;
the league is littered with loads of individual talent... Darn few make it all
come together ans actually lead a team to team coordination.
HONDO Number 17 not only was and remains the best...
BUT his loyalty ranks at the top also...
One career... One team John Hondo, Havlicek
gets my vote play maker... Spiritual leader before the phrase was coinned
and an over all good guy... Yupper #17 is sorely missed
old guy who see's a lot
Hondo won, what, 9 championships? And he is rated 60? Come on. He was the driving force of many of the Celtics championships. He should be in the top 10!
What? That's right, baby.
Come on, we are talking about what he did on the court not after he retired. One of the best point guards ever.
Isiah Thomas is nice Point Guard also like chris paul or Jason Kid but chris paul is the no.1 Fans of Isiah Thomas Thomas gets a lot of crap for destroying the New York Knicks and itís a valid point. He and James Dolan combined is what pushed me over the edge to no longer being a Knicks fan, but thatís besides the point. As a basketball player, Zeke was amazing and one of my favorite players of all-time. He led the Bad Boys to two NBA titles, and despite his size, was the biggest player for those title teams.
Said by many NBA legends to be the greatest ever, including Kareem. Search for him online and you'll see.
He could touch the top of the back board at 6 ft 1, it proves a lot of thing and what he could've done for the game!
Definitely earl. You guys should watch the movie about him. Its pretty good and it really shows how good of a player he was. It was reported that he had a 52 inch vertical leap.More comments about Earl The Goat Manigault
I thnik he is in his prime one of the best defenders in the league
Look at the teams before and after he came (Mavs, Suns, Nets and return to the Mavs and win a championship).. Even at the age of 38 he can really play..
Jason Kidd may not be a big scorer or dunker, but he is consistent and a person his teamates could rely on
tntrocksbbMore comments about Jason Kidd
Moses was better than shaq ever will be! Moses didnt need to be over weight to get his rebounds the man used talent. He's the reason the sixers won it in 83!
He was the most talented center who came from Europe. Very clever. Good player and good man.
Baron davis was amazing dude
he scored so many points and was so strong
Greatest basketball player of all time. The guy couldn't be stopped. Magic Johnson was scared of him. His magical dunks wowed crowds all over the world.
He is an amazing mid range shooter and a great hook shooter as well. The time he blocked Lebron was the best or when he stole the ball against Paul Pierce and dunked yeah. There is plenty more I could list but he's the man.
He is my favorite and my second favorite is Pau Gasol.
One of the BEST Players in the Lakers He good at everything in the court he play good never give up always try his best. He one of my favorite player in the nba
Best in game dunked of all time! Hands down well next to vince and d wilkens
The best dunker and good fighter in 90's. He created one of the best duo (with gary payton)in nba ever.
Kevin Love doesn't deserve top 10 or even 20 but, he is way better then half these guys on the list. You have majorly under rated him, he can shoot he is great in the paint. He does lack Defensive abilities but come on 1/4 of the guys above don't start or are even welly known.
SOON TO BE ONE OF THE BEST ALL AROUND PLAYERS IN THE NBA
The best girl basketball player form college. Got drafted to Detroit!
Nobody got more heart than this guy. Simply the GOAT. He's faster than AI, shoots better than Kobe, and has more heart than Duncan. He's a beast.
"Big Shot Bob" is not only known for his clutch shots but also his aggressive playing... not to mention he has 6 rings
one of the BEST shot blockers EVER and he had a surgery and is still one of the best Centers in the Game
Zo. A true warrior. A player with the heart of a champion. Deserves to be a hall of famer and one of the most intimidating center of his career.
No one can shoot threes like Jimmer Fredette and I don't no Why he wasn't the 1st pick in the NBA draft, And Why is he not a starter? I do not Know. Even Ray Allen would have a hard time beating him in a 3 point shoot out. And scored 43 points at Kentucky which is a final four team at one of the toughest places to play. And should be higher on this list.
If coaches let him loose, he could pull up many 3's like he did in Florida game. Even Reggie Miller was impressed. He is too unselfish. If NBA coaches let him shoot freely, he could cross a few feet on the run past the half court line and launch 3's before they guard him. He made 3 3/4 court shots in a row. I bet Ray Allen would have a hard time doing that!
The best ever he was the best college basketball player ever he never misses a three pointer and had a 43 point game at Kentucky and now is in the NBA averaging 8 threes a game! Jimmer Fredette can also dunk.More comments about Jimmer Fredette
118 ABA and NBA 40 point game. Only person to lead the ABA, NBA and NCAA in scoring. I saw Rick Berry score 55 points and saw him before he blew out his knee. He was amazing.
Jerome James is one of the greats in our game, kind of like the impact Allen Iverson had on Point Guards and Shooting Guards
Jerome James was amazing in his prime, even a few years ago he was incredible!
Jerome can really shoot and he is one of the greatest of all timeMore comments about Jerome James
He is so fast and athletic a weired shot but makes it
the first nba player to choose the bald look. revolutionized the headband
so underrated! Future star of the Milwaukee Bucks. Should be chosen by the All-Stars
Amazing scorer and passer. Also playing through bone spurs.
