A great player in college, and an even better one in the pros, Ty Lawson was the on-court leader for the greatest Nuggets team in franchise history in 2012-13.

Lawson’s development of a lethal three-point shot has allowed him to be a threat in all aspects of being a point guard. His numbers may not be the best on this list, but his team had a lot of success this past season and it was mostly due to him and the other elite wing players on the Nuggets.

Although he’s barely six feet tall, he is one of the best finishers at the rim in the league, let alone on a list of point guards. He will continue to be a successful point guard with the addition of Brian Shaw as the Nuggets new head coach, and should have the Nuggets in contention.
