Top 20 Point Guards In NBA History Ranked

Being a point guard is arguably the most important position on the court. The ball almost always starts in their hands and nearly every play is ran by them.

There are many different types of point guards, from pure passers like John Stockton to straight up scorers like Russell Westbrook. But no matter the type, to be considered one of the all-time greatest point guards in history meant being a leader and making your team better.

20. Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook is the current point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder, having played there his entire career. Westbrook was last year’s league MVP, and is also a seven-time NBA All-Star, two-time NBA All-Star Game MVP, and a two-time NBA Scoring Champion. As it stands, Westbrook has been recognized as one of the best all-around players in the NBA due to his athleticism and level of intensity he keeps up in the game.

During the 2016-17 season he became only the second player in NBA history to average a triple double for an entire season. And after this past season, he became the only player to average a triple double for 2 seasons. The Thunder showed just how much they valued their MVP by re-signing him to a 5 year contract extension worth a whopping $205 million.
