    This being a contract year, I think it's wise to expect an uptick in Lowry's performance.

    One spot behind Derrick Rose? Damn. Though I would take Lowry over Lawson.

    There's clearly some flaws in the rankings (For example Tony Parker isn't even on the list), but it helps support my thread from earlier where I said Lowry was a top 10 PG.

    Rose should be number 1. Bulls are going to be very good next year

    If you come up with a stat and it ends up leaving guys like Tony Parker out of the top 10 and Rose out of the top 5 point guards then it's time you go back and rethink the math behind your made-up stat.

    Now, HE is overrated. He's basically a SG, reminds me a lot of Jerryd Bayless. Like a way better version of Jerryd Bayless lol, but same court vision and chucking

    uh, both william and bayless have no court vision at all you can add westbrook into the mix too, your right they should be playing at shooting guard but are forced to play pg by their coach or whatever the reason might be.

    You raise a good point here. I think you can leave Rose out of it because projections on a player coming off a year-long injury are going to be wonky. But with Parker, he's got a great PER, and a great WS (both were top five last year amongst starting PGs), so it would be hard to come up with a model that drops him so far, unless it's making some huge assumptions about his performance dropping as he ages.

    personally i wouldn't rank damian in the top 10..
    but this is about kyle and im pretty happy for him and Toronto (when was a the last time you saw a raptors pg was in the top ten) he's got alot to prove, pretty much a work your ass off season, but 8th man, he deserves it.

    d will needs to be moved down to ninth and russ west down to third (even though i dont believe he belongs in the top 5, but whatever)

    Anyone saying D-Will isn't a top 5 point guard is straight looney-tunes and didn't even watch the Nets play last season.

    I'm not sure how either Curry or Irving are better than Deron Williams right now.

    Deron doesn't shoot the ball as much as either guy (which is why his scoring numbers are slightly lower) and he's a far superior playmaker to both. Curry is a joke on the defensive side of the ball, Kyrie is as well to a lesser extent. Kyrie also needs to get his assist turnover ratio over 2 before I even call him a point guard. People complain about Westbrook, but Irving so far plays like a 2 more than any other star PG in the league.
