I’ll also list the player’s age and his Player Efficiency Rating.
1. Chris Paul, Hornets
He’s the best point guard in the league, regardless of of age.
2. Deron Williams, Jazz
Better jumper than CP3, but doesn’t have his quickness or vision.
3. Derrick Rose, Bulls
What he’s doing in his rookie year (18.7 points, 5.8 assists) is phenomenal.
4. Devin Harris, Nets
He’s absolutely blowing up – 24.8 points, 6.1 assists – right before our very eyes. That sound you hear is Mark Cuban grinding his teeth.
5. Mo Williams, Cavs
Mo is still figuring things out on the defensive end, but he’s a nice sidekick for LeBron, despite the so-so FG% (43.7%).
6. Rajon Rondo, Celtics
Handled the point during the C’s championship run. Does it with passing (7.2 assists) and defense (2.2 steals).
7. Ramon Sessions, Bucks
It was Sessions, not Ridnour, that prompted the Bucks to trade Mo Williams away. 15.6 points and 5.8 assists indicates he’s the point guard of the future in Milwaukee.
8. Jordan Farmar, Lakers
He’s struggling with his shot this season (41.9%) and is still playing behind Derek Fisher.
9. Nate Robinson, Knicks
He’s thriving in Mike D’Antoni’s system (14.5 points, 4.2 asissts), but at just 5’ 9”, is he limited in his upside?
10. Russell Westbrook, Thunder
He just joined the starting lineup, but is still averaging 12.3 points and 4.1 assists.
Before you blast me for missing a player or two, be sure to check his age. All these guys are 25 years-old or younger.
12/4 Update: Mo Williams is 25, not 23.
