Tony Parker

Postby Indy5 » Tue Jun 15, 2010 2:02 pm

I just heard Tony Parker say he thinks he is the 3rd best point guard in the league. HA! This really cracks me up. There is no way. I don't think he is even top 10 so I was wondering who everyone's top 10 point guards would be.

1. Rondo
2. Williams
3. Paul
4. Nash
5. Rose
6. Westbrook
7. Nelson
8. Kidd
9. Billups
10. Harris, Jennings, Curry, and Evans(if you count him as a point guard)

If you count Evans as a point guard, I put him at 8 and everyone moves down one. This puts Parker at 14 on my list. And depending on how Wall and Turner are next year, plus how Flynn imropves, he could slide even more. You could also make a case for Aaron Brooks as well.

IMO, Evans is more of a PG then Curry is. and Turner will play the 2.

Ok, I see your point there. I'd consider both point guards. Curry played a lot of it this year. I think Turner will play a little 1 as well as the 2.

And ndfan, really? You think Parker is the fifth best point guard?

First, rajon rondo is not the best point guard in the league. Considering Steve Nash has won two MVPS i think he has to be number 1. Rondo has only had 2 breakout years, if he can sustain it for at least 4-5 more years yeah he can be considered, but i'd go...
1. Nash
2. Paul
3. Williams
4. Rondo
5. Parker
6. Billups
7. Rose
8. Westbrook
9. Evans
10. Jennings

Also, Tony Parker is easily in the top 10 pgs i could have had him just as high as the others, he has won a finals mvp and scored the most points in the paint the last couple years as a PG.

I just don't see how he can be in the top 10. 2 or 3 years ago, I'd put him in the top 5 for sure, but I feel point guard play has improved a lot and he has gone downhill some.

agreed...I think Ginobli is more of an asset to the spurs than Parker...I realize that this isn't sticking to the topic but he makes Parker's job at point less of a true task like Paul's job or Nash or williams...Parker is about #10 in my book.

True, Curry played alot of PG for the Warriors, but I still think he's a 2 forced to play the 1 out of necessity. Who else do the Warriors have? Monte Ellis? same thing. both 2's so one had to run the point.

True. I used to think of Ellis of more of a 1 but now I think of him as more of a 2. Maybe a little of that is cause he can't shoot at all, just a great slasher. I think Curry is a good combo guard. His skills translate well to playing both. His last year at Davidson probably helped prepare him to play more point in the NBA because he didn't have Richards to play the 1. Richards was a really solid point, taking pressure off of Curry.

1. Paul
2. Williams
3. Rondo
4. Rose
5. Nash
6. Westbrook
7. Billups
8. Nelson
9. Evans
10. Jennings
That is what I think as of right now. If you were going with more of a legendary factor for active point guards Nash would be on top followed by Kidd and Parker.

Rose - out because of injury.
Westbrook - out because of shooting WAY too much. Combo guard IMO.

Chris Paul.
Kyrie Irving.
Tony Parker.
Rajon Rondo.
Deron Williams.

I'd agree with this. Kyrie Irving has really come on strong this year. Showing a major clutch gene late in games.
