Ranking the Top 30 Starting Point Guards in NBA
10.) Eric Bledsoe – Phoenix Suns
Even though he has been the subject of trade rumors for many years, Bledsoe is a very good point guard when healthy. The mini-LeBron at point guard should bounce back this season alongside of Devin Booker.
9.) Kyle Lowry – Toronto Raptors
This might be low for some, but it is a testament to how deep the point guard group is in the league. He signed back in Toronto in hopes of finally getting over the hump in the East.
8.) Isaiah Thomas – Cleveland Cavaliers
After putting up one of the most impressive scoring seasons in recent memory, Thomas had the best season of his career in Boston at the age of 28. Now he goes to Cleveland where he hopes to exceed in the old Irving role.
7.) Mike Conley – Memphis Grizzlies
Can you still be underrated with a max contract, because I think Conley still is underrated. When healthy, Conley is one of the better all-around point guards in the game.
6.) Damian Lillard – Portland Trail Blazers
I used to argue Lillard over Irving until Irving’s past two Finals performances. Lillard is one of the few elite point guards in the game and one of the league’s best scorers.
