The NBA has many great and growing players right now, and from this year there will be more new players coming, we just have to wait for the NBA draft 2020. Unluckily, because of this pandemic happening now, the NBA draft will be moved. Today we are going to talk about the top 10 point guards in the NBA right now. We are going to talk about the current season (2019-2020) and I want to share with you my top 10 point guards in the NBA right now, this is not biased because I choose these top 10 point guards because of their outstanding stats and highlights.
Disclaimer: The order of the list is not about the rankings and we don’t want to compare players, it’s shuffled and mixed.
1. Chris Paul
He is in the number one spot on this topic, but it does not mean he is the best for me. Despite the trade made by the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder, and of course of his age, Chris Paul still managed to carry his team, and OKC is in the 5th seed right now in the West. He can still show some crazy handles like he did when they played with the Houston Rockets at OKC, and his basketball I.Q has never vanished. He is still one of the best point guards for me until right now. He averaged 17.7 Pts per game, 6.8 assist per game and 48.9 field goal this season.
2. Ja Morant
Ja Morant in my opinion, he is one of the fastest growing point guards in the league right now, he makes 17.6 Pts per game, 6.9 assist per game and 49.1% field goal this season. He has good handles, good outside and inside shooting and good basketball I.Q. He is still young and I think he can still improve more and he can win and build a strong franchise after 3-4 years.
3. Russell Westbrook
Russell Westbrook is one of the best point guards in the NBA right now, with his outstanding speed and athleticism is the reason he made into my top 10 point guards. His monstrous plays and dunks are so normal for him as a point guard. I loved the way he worked with James Harden and how fast he built rapport with the Houston Rockets players. He averaged 27.5pts per game, 7.2 assist per game and 47.4% field goal this season. He can still win a ring if the Houston Rockets acquire more great players to build a super team or he can team up with some great forwards, I am sure he will be a great help.
4. Kemba Walker
Kemba Walker is on my list because he made those players dance with his amazing handles. With his amazing handles and scoring, I can see Boston Celtics making it through the finals. He fits perfectly with the Boston Celtics, and I think Jason Tatum and other players on the Celtics are happy playing with him. He averaged 21.2pts per game, 4.9 assist per game and 42.1% field goal this 2019-2020 season.
5. Damian Lillard
Yeah you are right, Damian Lillard. The one that made OKC cry last year’s playoffs, in the first round of the 2019 playoffs. In the first round of the 2019 playoffs Lillard pulled down the trigger behind the arc for the dagger against OKC to make them advance to the 2nd round of the playoffs. This 2019-2020 season he is still in his prime and can still manage to make 30+ points per game. He averaged 28.9pts per game, 7.8 assist per game and 45.7% field goal this season. With Mccollum and Kanter, Lillard can still win a ring next year, because they are in the 9th seed this season. He just needs to be healthy next season if he wants to be in the playoffs again.
6. Stephen Curry
One of the greatest shooters of all time, 2-time MVP and won 3 NBA championships. He can still manage to score 50+ points and I am pretty sure he can still shoot from the backcourt. I chose him in my top 10 because of his shooting ability and passing ability, he is one of the best shooters of all time. Unfortunately, because of his injury this season, Steve Kerr decided Curry to take a rest. Steve Kerr already knows that Warriors won’t make it to the finals because KD leaves and Thompson is still injured, he made a good decision for Curry. Stephen Curry made 2,495 threes as of now. I hope he can get back on track again and see him play in the playoffs next season.
7. Trae Young
Trae Young is also a rookie, but his handles and scoring skills are so perfect for his age. He averaged 29.6pts per game, 9.3 assists per game and 43.7% field goal this season. Trae Young needs some help if he wants to win a chip and build a strong franchise after 3-4 years. In my opinion he needs at least 1 SF and 1 good center too. He will be a scoring machine sooner or later, and will be able to compete in the playoffs.
8. James harden
James Harden is one of the best shooters of all time as well, he can be a guard also because of his passing skills. He is most likely to make an ISO play because of his dribbling skills. James Harden averaged 34.4pts per game, 7.4 assist per game and 43.5% field goal this season. Even if Westbrook is on the team with him, Harden can still score 30+ per game.
9. Kyrie Irving
Kyrie Irving is the best ball handler and the crossover king in this generation of NBA. He still can’t win a championship by himself but still, his moves are so smooth for a point guard like him. He averaged 27.4 pts per game, 6.4 assist per game and 47.8 field goal this season. With Durant with him, I wonder how far they can go together. I just hope Irving learns to manage himself and stay healthy.
10. Ben Simmons
Ben Simmons is one of the best passers and point guards in the NBA. Even though his height is not for point guard, his play is for point guard, his passing ability can show you that he is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Even though he can’t shoot threes, his inside scoring is outstanding. He averaged 16.7 pts per game, 8.2 assist per game and with a high field goal of 58.5% this season. He is still young and can still build a strong franchise and win a championship sooner or later. I just hope he practices to shoot threes, because it will be an advantage for him when his team competes with a team that has a lot of shooters.
