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 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.
