    So I got in a stupid argument today with a guy who knows more NBA than I'll ever forget about the best point guard in the league. I say, right now, I think it's Tony Parker. He lost his shit and tabbed 1A/1B of Rondo and Paul.

    I know people here know NBA (perhaps not quite as well as baseball, but still) so here's the poll. I'd appreciate a top five, too, if you're up for it. Intrigued to see how this shakes down.

    If he recovers fully, Rose.

    I went with Westbrook. I would have gone with Rose, but the knee injury is a factor for now. He may be the best again by the end of the season but for now I'll go with the idea that it generally takes a full season on a repaired knee before all the old capabilities come back.

    Chris Paul was once in the running but I'm just not sold on his durability -- also because of past knee issues.

    For now ...
    1. Westbrook
    2. Parker
    3. Rondo
    4. Rose
    5. Nash
    6. Paul
    7. Williams

    If Rondo were more consistent, he'd be it hands down. But he isn't, so I'll go with Paul, with the proviso that it is possible Rose will pass 'em both if his knee heals properly.

    I just love Rondo, he does so many little things and distributes the ball to others where they are most effective (well Ray Allen disagrees). Paul is a great player but he's lost some and last year his shots at the end of games and quarters did not look so good (from where I sat.)

    I say Rose until he proves he can't comeback to full strength. But Paul is right there. A big part of me wants to believe that it is still Nash, but I know that is no longer the case.

    Up until around early May of last year, I might've said Derrick Rose. A blown out ACL rather changed that story, though. Now I'll take Paul.

    If we could separate offense and defense, I'd still go with Nash. But he can't guard anyone at all.

    If you knew they would be healthy, I would go with Paul.

    If I needed one guy to score 50 points to win a game for me, Westbrook.
  12. Chris Paul is the best point guard in the league by a good margin...Not sure why others on this thread think differently.

    Nobody runs the pick and roll as well. Nobody is shiftier in the lane. All of the others have a weakness. Paul is the most well-rounded, and the best leader as well. Take him off the Clippers and they go to the lottery.
