The goal of this project is to determine the general consensus on Pacers Digest of who the best players are at each position in the NBA: Center, Power Forward, Small Forward, Shooting Guard, and Point Guard.

However, do not worry about the positions. I have tried to put everyone at their proper position, but what I am trying to do here is vote for the best overall player, at the position I happened to put them. The objective of each poll is to determine the best player listed, not the best pure positional player.

This thread is to vote for the best remaining shooting guard in the NBA. You have 24 hours from the time this thread is posted to vote!

Once each position has 30 players ranked, the project will end, and a final tally will be posted in a new thread.

The top shooting guards so far, as voted by Pacers Digest members, are:

#1 Kobe Bryant
#2 Dwyane Wade
#3 Paul Pierce
#4 Ray Allen
#5 Vince Carter
#6 Manu Ginobili
#7 Richard Hamilton
#8 Michael Redd
#9 Joe Johnson
#10 Jason Richardson
#11 Ben Gordon
#12 Corey Maggette
#13 Larry Hughes
#14 Caron Butler
#15 Bonzi Wells
#16 Morris Peterson

Today's nominees* for best shooting guard remaining are:

Raja Bell
Marquis Daniels
Ricky Davis
Andre Iguodala
Stephen Jackson
Desmond Mason
Mike Miller
Cuttino Mobley
Jerry Stackhouse
Hedo Turkoglu

* I can't please everyone with the position I put certain guys, so the way I see it is this:

If I've made such a colossal mistake, it can easily be corrected by you, the voter. How? I will always have "Other" as an option. All you have to do is vote for it, and state for the record in a reply which player you thought deserved the vote. If the majority of people do this, then that player will still win this poll. It just takes a little more effort then two clicks of the mouse. But if you're too lazy to do that, then you have no right to whine about it later. :-p

Ricky Davis puts up 18, 5, and 5. Give me that over any of these other guys, easily.

I'll take Raja.

And I forget....Is Ricky Davis the poor man's Stephen Jackson or is Stephen Jackson the poor man's Ricky Davis?

Ricky Davis is more inconsistent than Jack. Let's just put it that way.

I can't decide between Jack and Stack.

EDIT - I've decided. Whoever I didn't vote for this time will get my vote next time :)

Andre Iguodala isn't better than Ricky Davis. Not even close. He could and should be, but he isn't. 18, 5, and 5. Davis kept that up the whole season while playing solid defense, even during his transition to Minnesota, while shooting a good percentage. but nobody cares about that. People only care about his past, and the fact that Iguodala can do flashy dunks.

Iggy's a way better defender and a better teammate than Ricky, who gets passed around the league like a joint at a frat party.

How come Dallas gave us Marquis and not Stack if Marquis is better?

Common misconception. When did Ricky misbehave last? Around his last days in Cleveland when he was 22. Ricky has just been traded a lot because he isn't an ideal 2nd option, not because he isn't talented.
