    top 10 PGs since i've been watching hoops:

    1. Magic
    2. Isiah
    3. Stockton
    4. J Kidd
    5. Payton
    6. Nash
    7. CP3
    8. Derrick Rose
    9. Deron Williams
    10. Tim Hardaway/Mark Jackson (both deserve recognition)


    (Yes, I know Clyde, Cousy, Archibald & the Big O deserve to be on this list, but I'm just ranking guys I've actually seen play)

    Let's try to look at this debate a lil differently.

    Just because you're MVP, it doesn't make you the better or best player.

    For instance, I thought Paul was the better player even when Nash was winning his MVP awards. He was the better all-around player then, as he is now. He's better because he's better both ways. In the comparison to Rose the argument is the same.

    Think about it, just because David Robinson won his MVP in 94-95 that doesn't mean he was better than Olajawon. He was never better than Olajawon. Does anyone consider Robinson to be better than Olajawon??? Well no one in their right mind, maybe Spurs fans.. But I digress.

    Players win MVP's because their team has a great, dominant season and they've been integral in contributing to it. Ie, Nash and the Suns great winning seasons and Robinson's 62-20 season that year w the Spurs. As is the case w Rose. He had a great yr. So did his team.

    Just because you win an MVP it doesn't make you the better player.

    Damn! the veteran PG who been outstanding for close to a decade in the NBA get no recognition when compared to the young upcoming players.

    CP3 reminds me of Kidd's first decade in the NBA.
    Deron reminds me of Parker/Nash.
    Westbrook/Rondo has Billups swagger but not his team leadership.
    Andre Miller has never been a top 10 PG

    D-rose is still not the best PG in the NBA. Just because he won the MVP doesn't mean he's better. Cp3 is the better passer, way better defender, more efficient, better 3pt shooter, and has a better basketball IQ.

    Should he also be everyone's #1 overall player in the NBA since he won MVP?

    The reason I underline Billups is cause those 3 names under his will be better then him once they mature a little more.
    Please tell me why Kidd is above Westbrook.

    1. Chauncey Billups
    Not the fastest, strongest or most athletic. But solid.

    Top 5:
    CP3
    D Rose
    D Williams (can easily be #2)
    Rondo (His ability to control the game without a Jumper puts him here)
    Westbrook (Great talent but still lacks IQ)

    Bottom 5:
    Nash
    Kidd
    Parker
    B Davis (When healthy he's still a beast)
    Billups

    ---> Curry and Wall are the future but can't put them above any of these players just yet.

    This has nothing to do with an attempt to provoke a reaction from Trillion does it?

    I like Billups but he aint top 10.

    Nash has to be number 1 for me. Best PG to watch on the floor still. Best pass in the league and can elevate his team when needed far more consistently than any other PG mentioned.

    I actually forget about B. Davis even though I'm a fan of him. I was looking at videos of him during the weekend with the Cavs. One of the most exciting players in the league when healthy.

    Cause Westbrook is still learning how to be a PG while Kidd has been giving lessons for years.

    I'd put Jrue in your Tier 4 category since you have Curry there.

    He isn't number 1 because EVERYTHING Rose does, CP3 does it better.

    And in some aspects it isn't even close.

    CP3 is the prototype guard, who can adjust his game to suit any roster.

    If Rose isn't scoring, honestly he isn't even 10 imo.

    The Bulls success was not all Derrick Rose.

    I didn't think he earned MVP, that could a thread all by itself.

    They're close, but Curry is better.

    Whats funny is that Curry would be a better fit on the 76ers and Jrue would be a better fit for the Warriors.
