To be a great point guard, a man must be a great leader, have tremendous skill, and be able to force his team through any trials and tribulations. The list below shows which point guards do that best.

Honorable Mentions

Damian Lillard

PPG: 19.0 APG: 6.5 RBG: 3.1

Great rookie season for Damien Lillard and a steal for the Trail Blazers at pick six. He also set a record for the most three pointers in a season for a rookie. He may lead Portland to the Playoffs alongside LeMarcus Aldrige.

Ty Lawson

PPG: 16.7 APG: 6.9 RBG: 2.7

Great season for Ty Lawson and the Denver Nuggets. They ended with 57 wins and the fourth spot on the ladder. Unfortunately, they were kicked out by a red hot Golden State Warriors. Nuggets had a bad off season, but if Lawson plays the way we know he can, he might be able to lead his team to the playoffs.

Top 10

Jrue Holiday

PPG: 17.7 APG: 8.0 RBG: 4.2

Break out season for young gun Jrue Holiday. Put up tremendous stats and was picked for his first All-Star appearance. The Sixers didn't make it to the playoffs but now that Jrue is with the Pelicans he could lead them to a playoff run.

Deron Williams

PPG: 18.9 APG: 7.7 RBG: 3.0

Great point guard who can help his team incredibly. Dropped his assist total a little last season but with 4 all stars around him this season Williams should be able to increase it.

John Wall

PPG: 18.5 APG: 7.6 RBG: 4.0

The leader for the Washington Wizards, and what a leader to have. John Wall sat out the first few weeks of the season and the Wizards didn't do too well without him. As soon as John Wall returned the Wizards immediately lifted. John Wall and the Wizards could make it to the playoffs this season.

Kyrie Irving

PPG: 22.5 APG: 5.9 RBG: 3.7

In my opinion the most exciting point guard in the league. He has the moves on offense to get everyone out of their seats screaming his name. He can sit any defender down and make any shot he takes. This season he could send his team to the playoffs and soon enough might be the seasons MVP.

Rajon Rondo

PPG: 13.7 APG: 11.1 RBG: 5.6

The best passing Point Guard in the league, just look at his numbers. Rajon Rondo is a pass-first Point Guard who can elevate his team to championship status no matter who he's with.

Stephen Curry

PPG: 22.9 APG: 6.9 RBG: 4.0

The biggest All-star snub in 2013. Stephen Curry has the sweetest stroke in the game, often associated with honey. He set the record for most threes in a season and can top that next season. One of the best ball handlers in the league and a great passer.

Tony Parker

PPG: 20.3 APG: 3.0 RBG: 7.6

An outstanding career and it seems the older he gets, like his teammate Tim Duncan, the better he gets. He has a knack for finding his teammates and is able to get it to them no matter how difficult his situation.

Russel Westbrook

PPG: 23.2 APG: 5.2 RBG: 7.4

An offensive beast, one of the best point guards in the league and uses his teammates very well. With the help of Kevin Durant he has elevated Oklahomo to championship status, with a little improvement they may be able to beat the heat and win a championship.

Derrick Rose

2012 Stats

PPG: 21.8 APG: 7.9 RBG: 3.4

Derrick Rose is one of the most explosive players in the NBA and is one of the greatest players in the NBA. After missing the 2012-13 season, Rose will come out more hungry than any other player, and with the players around him, the bulls could make it very far in the playoffs

Chris Paul

PPG: 16.9 APG: 9.7 RBG: 3.7

He can do it offensively and defensively and he will challenge Lebron James for the MVP in the 2013-14 season. He has got his passing down to a tee and can find his teammates anywhere. He can put the ball right where his teammate wants it and that's what makes him such a great offensive leader.
