10. Mike Conley
There is a reason he was given such a big contract by the Memphis Grizzlies. Despite never appearing in an All-Star game, he is playing at that level.
15.3 points and 6.1 assists per game last season point to the most underrated point guard in the league.
9. Kemba Walker
Last season was a real breakthrough year for the Charlotte Hornets man. He can score in volume and shoots at a high percentage. At 26, he is only reaching his prime.
20.9 points - shooting 42.7 percent from the field - and 5.2 assists led Charlotte to the playoffs in the previous campaign.
8. Isaiah Thomas
He's taken time to find his home, but the diminutive guard has found his place with the Boston Celtics.
Shooting 42.8 percent for his 22.2 points per night last season and providing 6.2 dimes really were the stats of an All-Star calibre player.
7. John Wall
He may not have led the Washington Wizards to the heights many expected, but John Wall is already a star.
He averaged a double-double last season for the second consecutive year; providing 10.2 assists and dropping 19.9 points a game.
6. Kyle Lowry
Another late bloomer, Kyle Lowry is leading the charge to stop the Cleveland Cavaliers in the east.
With the Toronto Raptors, his 2.1 steals, 21.2 points and 6.4 assists were the catalyst for a franchise-best season.
5. Damian Lillard
He has been slighted on many occasions, but Damian Lillard is on the cusp of being a superstar with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Heading into his fifth season, Lillard averaged 25.1 points and 6.8 assists for the Blazers as they reached the playoffs against the odds.
4. Kyrie Irving
He came up clutch when it really mattered in the NBA finals and can look forward to a new season with his injury worries a thing of the past.
19.6 points a night was the lowest of his career since his rookie campaign, but Irving is well on the road to reclaiming his All-Star status.
3. Chris Paul
Often dubbed the perfect point guard, Chris Paul has many strings to his bow and is the glue that holds the L.A. Clippers together.
A third consecutive double-double season should not be understated and his 19.5 points and 10 assists were huge for L.A. in their third-placed finish.
2. Russell Westbrook
The man who many have tipped to be MVP this season. Russell Westbrook is a triple-double machine who can have a huge campaign without Kevin Durant.
An incredible 7.8 rebounds, 10.4 rebounds and 23.5 points were only the tip of the iceberg in an incredibly impressive 2015-16 for Westbrook.
1. Stephen Curry
No surprise the unanimous MVP tops the list. His shooting was incredible last season as he led the league in scoring.
He dropped 402 threes as he averaged 30.1 points, 6.7 assists and 2.1 steals.
