    Default Who is a starting Point Guard?

    Alright, everyone knows we need a starting point guard. Everyone. So what I want to hear is just WHO in the NBA is a startling quality point. How many are there? Let's make the assumption Lawson and Collison aren't starter quality, and George Hill is a shooting guard.

    Who in the league is a "starting quality point?"

    Rondo
    Paul
    D. Williams
    Nash
    Kid
    Parker
    Rose
    Miller
    Harris
    Stuckey
    Jennings
    Nelson
    Arenas
    Felton
    Brooks
    Billups
    Westbrook
    Flynn
    Curry
    Baron Davis
    Evans? - He may be more of a Brandon Roy style shooting guard.

    Look, here's 20, 21 names that start for their team. Some aging. Some yet unproven. Some won't look nearly as good here in a year or two.

    How many of these guys would improve us enough to make the playoffs? Maybe 9 of them? Who is attainable? What about the crappy contracts of players like Davis and Arenas?

    Basketball is a funny sport. It isn't necessarily about having the most talent. It is about having the most talent that "fits". Do we need a Chris Paul? Or do we need an Andre Miller? Aaron Brooks?

    Just some random thoughts.....

    Derek Fisher's old. While he is still a decent defender, outside shooter and isn't mistake prone, he's almost a trophy in the Lakers lineup. His role outside of the lakers would be as a backup.

    Teams like Heat, Lakers and Cavs don't really need a starting point guard because they have Wade, Kobe and Lebron to create all the offense they need. Plus they couldn't afford to spend a lot on a point guard and still have enough to pay some frontcourt players.

    Might as well throw Mo Williams on there.

    John Wall will be starter quality from day one come October and likely will be the starter and Arenas will likely move to the two. The Wiz will have two starter quality PGs. I also don't see Mike Conley and Mike Bibby. Bibby's a little older and his stats are down, but he is still a starter in this league.
