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.

    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.
