Christmas is upon us. I bet you crazies are recovering from the annual Black Friday or Thanksgiving. I’m not. I’m whatever at this point because I’m keeping tabs as the era of great point guards gets even crazier around the NBA as they reign supreme. Stat tracking gets somewhat difficult because I just want to watch them play. Quality point guards are not difficult to find anymore compared to years’ past. Even if you do not land anyone listed among the top 10 in your fantasy draft, there are more good point guards hidden in the waiver wire depending on the league’s depth. Stats are up to date as of December 1, 2010.
10. Tony Parker – 17.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.7 steals, EFF +19.9
Cheated on Eva Longoria and divorced, Parker manages to put up numbers. How can any man be dumb to cheat on her? She’s hot. I don’t get it. He got bored? He probably was never in love to begin with. Regardless, Parker and Duncan are supporting Manu Ginobli now. That’s weird. Usually it is the other way around. I am not sure if Tony can keep this up as he has been slipping. Trade him away (if you have him) while his value is still high.
9. John Wall – 18 points, 3.6 rebounds, 9.1 assists, 2.8 steals, EFF +20.3
Wall has gotten into some injuries lately, but that should not stop you from keeping him. He has been averaging better numbers than Derrick Rose’s rookie year. That must mean he’s the GOAT, right? Amirite? Gilbert Arenas has been picking up steam. Nick Young is somewhat breaking out. His numbers will not get any higher until the backcourt log jam is resolved for good. Keep him because he’s the type of player that can get steals at a high rate like Rondo and Chris Paul.
8. Stephen Curry – 20.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.2 steals, EFF +20.9
Golden State is lucky to have him. Too bad his presence does not present more wins. He is a good pickup to have in fantasy land. A dead eye shooter with a hot mom, Curry is getting better with each season. He will move up the ranks next season. For now, the numbers say that he is at number 10. What if Monta Ellis wasn’t playing in G-State? Would his numbers be higher? What if Curry was the starting two instead? Does that even matter? Not much else to say about him except that his mom resembles Thandie Newton. That is hot.
7. Raymond Felton – 18.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 8.1 assists, 2.0 steals, EFF +21.5
This guy came up fast. He is finally getting his shine on. Playing with Amar’e “I don’t know defense” Stoudemire really helped him pump up those assists. New York fans should be happy. Just a few months ago, I was pumping up Tony Parker to NY. You guys do not even need him. The 8.1 assists and 2.0 steals helped boost the efficiency tremendously. If you do not have him on your fantasy squad, make sure to get him if you can. Felton remains underrated even when the numbers say that he is on fire right now.
6. Steve Nash – 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 9.6 assists, 0.8 steals, EFF +21.8
Classic. You cannot go wrong with this man who is going through a divorce just like Tony Parker. Don’t feel bad for him because he remains with the numbers. That’s what I like to see. He flirts with the 10 assists average despite not having Amar’e. If only he can get steals, but he has proven that he can’t do such thing. He can get threes, high free throw percentage, and some points. I would trade Nash for a top 5 point guard. Really. I would. It’s not a knock on him. Well, it is because he can’t get steals. The top 5 point guards can get them. Imagine him scoring 20+ points. Oh well. Nash is still great after all these years. It wouldn’t surprise me if you kept him.
