After being recently acquired via a draft day trade, the New Orleans Pelicans added one of the best young point guards in the game. It looked like the Philadelphia 76ers were handing the reigns of the franchise to Holiday after the Andre Iguodala/Andrew Bynum/Dwight Howard trade last offseason, but the Sixers seemed to get the short end of the stick with Bynum sitting out the entire year.

Holiday is known for being a lockdown defender on the wing, and at only 23 years old, he could still develop into an elite ball-handler with the upside potential to be a 20-point, 10-assist-type guy. Jrue may have only cracked the top 10 list this year, but could be rapidly moving up in the years to come.

Holiday will be surrounded by up-and-coming talent in New Orleans. With players like Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis, look for the Pelicans to make some noise next year and potentially compete for a low playoff spot.

    Tony Parker should be # 1 on this list. Watch him dominate CP3 9 times out of 10 they play against each other. Russell Westbrook should be in the # 2 spot, even he is better than Paul. Why do so many people d#”k ride CP3 like they do LBJ? It´s rediculous.

      It’s simple, CP3 is a bully on the court. He demands attention on both ends (something Parker cannot do) and is always one of the assists leaders, every single season. Parker is an elite player, but he only does a few things very well: score in the paint, pick pockets, hit mid range. Paul does all those things and more, including a deadly 3-pointer.

        Paul may do all those things, just not better than Tony Parker. It´s simple, Paul is younger, has a younger, more talented team around him than TP, but who got their team to the finals? Paul was at home with his kids while TP was being gaurded by the best basketball player on the planet. Parker also was an assists leader this past season and had better all around numbers than any other point gaurd in the league, that´s a fact. Hands down the best point gaurd in the NBA right now is Tony Parker.
