NBA’s Top 15 Point Guards: Tony Parker at No. 6

In today’s NBA, point guard is a position overwhelming with great players. Many would say that it is currently the position with the highest quality of play and highest level of production.

The debate as to ranking the league’s best at this position is ongoing and constantly changing as the players are constantly improving.

The best part is that many of the elite point guards are still very young and have a great deal of development left. These players will certainly be a lot of fun to watch for years to come.

Bleacher Report’s contributor, Mark Evans makes this list of the NBA’s Top 15 point guards today.

Here’s what he have to say about Parker.

Unlike Westbrook, Tony Parker knows his place on his team and does a great job at playing his role.

He understands that he is a facilitator first and makes sure to always look to find Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. As the youngest player out of the trio, however, Parker has proved over the years that he can get to the rim and score when his team needs it.

I understand he may not be the flashiest or the best scorer, but Parker does everything very well and has been playing at an elite level for the past few years.

Tony Parker deserves more credit than he gets. Well, I’m giving him credit as the number 6 point guard on my list.

Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Deron Williams, Rajon Rondo and Steve Nash round out the Top 5, while Russel Westbrook, Stephen Curry, John Wall and Jrue holiday cracked the Top 10 on the list.

Agree or disagree with this point guard ranking? Tell us what you think.

  1. Good list, although I think Parker should be at the top 5. IMO, Williams should be no. 6 and Curry is too high at number 8.

  2. I agree with you Ramon, Parker should be in the top 5 on this list. Just to point out none of the Top 5 PG of BR’s list have a title. Parker has 3. 😉

  3. Yeah Parker should be on the top 5 at least, this list from BR obviously neglect the fact that Tony has already won 3 titles and judge the players on their own capability (Parker is always overshadowed by the fact that he playing with Ginobili and Duncan)

    However, I still think Parker should be in the top 5 at the very least.

  4. Parker is a top 5 PG for sure ! However analysts tend to look at the hype rather than the contributions and success of the teams that these guys tend to be play on.

    Robby is it (lockout) over yet ? LOL,LOL,LOL !!! I’ve just awaken to open up another six pack ! Ah well back to hibernation !

    This time next year I’m hoping to be in my old stomping grounds of London visiting family and taking in the Summer Olympics .

    The riots in N London were meant to be an appetizer should things start to get really stupid .

    tophatal ………….
