In recent years, spectators of the NBA have seen a shift in the dominance of the point guard with the stars of the league showing just how gifted they are.
The role is instrumental in the game with the player orchestrating their teams attacking plays as well as spearheading their defence.
However, as the seasons have passed, the role has slightly changed with a different style of play dominating the league.
Instead of a point guard who solely plays to feed other players, throw dimes and play for assists like the great John Stockton; we now have athletic and powerful players who can score the basketball at will.
This new prototype of point guard is personified by Russell Westbrook, John Wall and Derrick Rose. Their freakish athleticism is just remarkable to see on a nightly basis leaving us only able to dream of doing what they do with ease.
