I'm a witness. The game in the playoffs where Rondo dropped 40 somethings points and about 10+ assists against the Miami Heat when I began to think that Rondo is the best point guard in the game. His court vision and the way he can get into the paint. If he can hit his jumper consistently, Rondo will be unstoppable.

You take D-Rose away from the Bulls and they lose to the Sixers in the opening round of the playoffs.


You take CP3 out of the lineup and that franchise somehow get the no.1 pick and go rebuilding mode.

All of the PGs have flaws to their games or things that hold them back from being the absolute best.

cp3=injury prone, never been out of the 2nd round, but great court vision, quick hands on D, can take over games at times. At this point of his career he needs to take his team to a championship contending level, 2nd round exits arent good enough.

deron williams=hasnt had a lot of team success the past few years, has never led the league in assists or been 1st team all nba. He's been consistently very good though and is one of the strongest players at the position. Has moments where he looks like the best.

Rondo=bad attitude, poor sportsmanship, cant shoot, cant hit FTs. Great court vision, solid defender. Rondo is only Rondo on the Celtics, put him on a bottom feeder like the Nets or the Bobcats and he is average at best. He thrives in their system

Nash=an older player at this stage of his career, never been to an NBA Finals, plays no D. Might be the best set up PG for bigs in the league still, can still run an offense effectively at his age.

Rose=becoming injury prone, inconsistent J, hasnt always shown up in big games, can become a better defender. Rose deserves credit for taking the Bulls to the Conference Finals, it'll be interesting to see how explosive he remains after coming back from the torn ACL.

Westbrook is by far the most athletically gifted PG in the league. This is a guy that dropped 43,7,7 in a big Finals game and people were "ho hum" about it.

He's hands down my favorite player in the league and I'm a life time Bulls fan

He's my favorite PG in the league and one of my favorite players right now. I really feel like by the time he gets 27 28 years old he will be the best PG in the league and will win a chip one day. He just has to continue to get better with his decision making and keep fine tuning that pull up J he relied on this season. Playing with Durant, people want him to always defer, but I dont agree. Sometimes Westbrook HAS TO TAKE OVER for the Thunder to win. A lot of times, its Westbrook's energy that gets KD going.

Chris Paul's best teammate before last year was David fuging West. Can't blame him there, he is by far the best in the league right now.

He's the most well rounded I'll give you that. Very active defender who racks up steals. I still dont like he how he played against the Spurs in the playoffs this past year. But I think with Chauncey back and some of the load off him he will do better this upcoming year. It'll be interesting to see if he stays in LA or leaves in the offseason.

Rondo had 44 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds in the eastern conference finals and he was one of the main reasons Boston was in the series against the Heat.

Westbrook and Rose are not PGs to me. They are SGs in a PG body.

I'll take Paul first but after him, I'll take Rondo.

Rose racks up assists and the help defense needed on him makes chicagos bigs look like rebounding champs.

Derrick Rose!

1. chris paul
2. d-will
3. rose
4. parker
5. westbrook
6. rondo

my logic for this was i placed the guys i ranked above him on the celtics and i think the celtics would be improved. obviously, different teams with different situations but i think these guys are a step up. i cant believe so many left parker off their list as he had an amazing season.
