Multiple choices, who do you guys believe will be the NBA's top pointguard?
Points per Game = PPG
Assists per Game = APG
Field Goal Percentage = FG%
Player Efficiency Rating = PER (for those of you that don't know, "Player efficiency rating (PER) is John Hollinger's all-in-one basketball rating, which attempts to boil down all of a player's contributions into one number")
PER isn't everything, obviously it doesn't translate wins; for example Russell Westbrook held Chris Paul in check in all their 3 games this year (albeit Paul only played 2) winning all 3. Westbrook averaged 23ppg and 8apg vs Paul who averaged 11ppg and 7apg vs Westbrook and the OKC Thunder.
Also it should be noted:
Rondo, who was Magic Johnson's pick for the perfect pointguard, is the only one on the list with an NBA championship as a starter and played 3Qtrs of playoff Basketball with a torn ACL. Speaking of Triple Doubles, Rondo has the 3rd most Triple Doubles (points/assists/rebounds) in playoff history, ahead of Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan Charles Barkley and Wilt Chamberlain. He's only 1 behind Lebron James who moved ahead of Rondo in this years playoffs (Rondo has 10, James has 11).
Stephan Curry broke Ray Allen's regular season record with the most 3's in a season this year
Russell Westbrook (vs Rondo, Parker, Paul, Williams and Rose) holds a better PPG avg, APG avg, FG%, and Winning % in his series against each of these players... Say what you want about his questionable shots, the guy shows up consistently and has bettered his NBA PG-peers in 1 on 1 matchups.
Parker has 3 NBA championships and was once the Finals MVP.
Derrick Rose currently holds the highest FG% within the final 5 minutes of games (2011-2012 season), over all the pointguards on the list at .481. He's clutch.
If this goes well I'll be doing Shooting guard tomorrow, Small Forward on tuesday, Power Forward on wednesday and Center on thursday. After that I might do one final one on my person opinion TEAM powerrankings friday night.
