Mikey is a person who loves to talk about sports including basketball and his favorite team is the San Antonio Spurs.

Ranking NBA Point Guards

This might be highly controversial, but let's go on in!

Tier One

Stephen Curry-Golden State Warriors

Only one man in the league is the best point guard and that goes to Stephen Curry who is also one of the greatest shooters of all time. He puts up superstar numbers night after night and is considered to be the 2nd best all time point guard as well, only trailing Magic Johnson.

Nicknamed "Chef Curry" he is truly one of a kind in this league and leads his team to wins, not to mention 3 championships in five years.

Tier Two

Damian Lillard- Portland Trail Blazers

Many people prior to the 2018-2019 NBA season had Lillard as maybe the 4th best point guard in the league, but after an incredible postseason run making it to his first Western Conference Finals, "Dame Dolla" now takes the title as the 2nd best point guard in the league.

Most sports writers would all agree Lillard confirmed his case at this spot due to his incredible buzzer beater in game five of the first round against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Kyrie Irving- Boston Celtics

Irving is a great player by all means on the court, but off the court on the contrary. Many people call Kyrie a "cancerous locker room presence" and some even wanted him out of Boston.

Tons of people thought that Irving would lead the stacked Celtics to the finals, but after losing to the Giannis led Bucks in five, it is shown that "Uncle Drew" cannot be a leader.

Russell Westbrook- Oklahoma City Thunder

Westbrook continues to put up insane numbers for the Thunder, averaging a triple double as a second option behind Paul George. It is widely known that he cannot lead a team on his own, but thrives behind a player.

Hence, why "The Brodie" is the 4th best point guard in the league. Don't get me wrong, he is a freak of nature, but nowhere better than Lillard or Curry.

Kemba Walker- Charlotte Hornets

To round out tier two, we have Kemba Walker making the cut. He is borderline tier three, but the drop off was way too big to have him there. Walker put up insane numbers for a struggling Charlotte team, and maybe won't return

"Cardiac Kemba" is a great play maker for any team he is on, and will drop you 25 a night without many people noticing. Not to mention he is an all star caliber player in this league.

Tier Three

John Wall- Washington Wizards

If Wall was fully healthy, no doubt he would be tier two, but after his awful injury who knows if he will be the same player. There is valid arguement that Wall is better than Walker, but this list is based off the 2018-2019 NBA season so he goes tier three due to that.

Ben Simmons- Philadelphia 76ers

The 6'10" point guard is living up to the hype in Philly. He is turning into a wonderful play maker and a defensive stalwart for any point guard due to his height.

Questions do arise on his shooting skills, as he cannot hit any shots from beyond the arc, but there is certainly room for improvement. In a couple years, I could see him as a tier two type of guy though.

De'Aaron Fox- Sacramento Kings

De'Aaron has the speed of a Fox, and it is quite incredible how big of a jump he took into his sophomore season. "Swipa" has everything in his hands to be a great play maker, shooter, and athleticism at 21 years old looks to keep it up and make the Kings end that playoff drought.

Chris Paul- Houston Rockets

A couple years ago, Paul would have been tier two maybe even tier one due to his passing and stealing skills, but this Paul is a fracture of what he used to be. He is still a great player, but is not what he was on the Clippers or the Hornets.

D'Angelo Russell- Brooklyn Nets

Finally making a name for himself in Brooklyn and becoming a 1st time all star, Russell arguably made the biggest jump on this list asides from Fox.

D-Lo finally led the Nets into the right direction after a long, miserable rebuild in which then GM Billy King traded all of the Nets future picks for an aging Jason Terry, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett into the playoffs as a six seed.

Eric Bledsoe- Milwaukee Bucks

Eric has always been a top 15 point guard, middle of the pack and perfect to be a part of your team to distribute the ball to Giannis and Middleton.

Not much needs to be said for "Mini Bron" who is just a great all around player.

Mike Conley- Utah Jazz

Arguably the greatest point guard in the league and maybe even history to never be selected into an all star game, Conley has moved on from the Memphis Grizzlies and plans to turn the Utah Jazz into contenders.

With his costar Donovan Mitchell in the back court, Conley's skills as a great defensive player go perfectly with Mitchell's offensive skills.

Kyle Lowry- Toronto Raptors

When talking about point guards, Kyle slips many peoples minds as just an average guy. If we are being honest, and if we based his play just for the playoffs, he would be tier two but he is just so inconsistent.

Tier Four

Jamal Murray- Denver Nuggets

Jamal almost made the tier three cut, but did not really show what he can really do. With time, he will definitely be a tier three player

Trae Young- Atlanta Hawks

Trae almost could have won rookie of the year with incredible numbers for a rookie, but considering how young he is, he could rise to a tier two for years to come.

Lonzo Ball- New Orleans Pelicans

Ball might have an annoying father in LaVar, but his game on the court does not let you down. He is a terrific play maker, a pure clamps on defense but his offense needs work, especially his shot form.

Goran Dragic- Miami Heat

Dragic was an all star player last year, but hasn't really been playing the greatest since then. So, tier four for Goran.

Tier Five is hardly worth talking about, just know the players on there are headlined by Jalen Brunson, Reggie Jackson, Tyler Johnson, and Colin Sexton

      True, but when he is healthy he is exactly the guy you want on your squad.

      Bro!!! Lonzo Ball is an injury prone man who I guess can pass and guard but he isn't that great at it. If he is like Pat Beverly, which should replace his spot, maybe I will agree but Lonzo is way overrated just because his father trashes the NBA. Also, Lonzo's free throw percentage is lower than Drummond's this season. However, Drummond is big and can guard/ rebound while lonzo is just a scrub who chucks up shots and misses them all.
