Slasher/Ball Handler (e.g. Derrick Rose, Brandon Jennings, Allen Iverson, Westbrook)
Smart/Great passer (e.g. Stephen Curry, Steve Nash, Billups)

I want the smart/great passer PG. I want someone to run the team and make good decisions.

Great passer, unless the offense is limited, then I'd take an Iverson-modeled Point-guard.. ;)

Lol it was a joke because that is what this discussion will turn into. But to answer the question I would rather have a PG who is smart, manages the game and sets the table than a pg who puts up 25pts 3assists per game

^^ yeah, way to ruin the thread.. on topic; your PG categories are too narrowly defined. "would I rather have the smart PG" or the other one? yeah, ok..

I haven't watched much of him but I wouldn't consider Curry a great passer, more like an above average passer.

But I would choose smart/great passer (Nash). He's just so fun to watch

I'd take a passing point guard that can manage the game over a point guard with a scorers mentality.

Waht i want in a Pg:

Great D.

Great IQ

Great court vision.

Great Leader running the floor.

Great passing skills.

Pass First.

Basically a 14-15 ppg 10-12 apg 2-3.5 spg Point guard.


Jason Kidd style.

Hope Rubio can live to that stat line.

You put a great passer on the 1996-2006 Sixers and you'd probably get about 10 lottery draft picks.

It really depends on the team...

I think it depends on the players you're building around the PG. I'd say the passing type player who can run a team (Nash etc.). But the slashing/ball handling players are arguably more exciting to watch.

And that's why Andre Miller was worse than AI in Philly. Wait what?

Ideally give me Tim Hardaway, a mix of A.I. and Steve Nash. Can pass, take you off the dribble whenever he wants or he can kill you from outside. Or the Stephon Marbury can get you 20 and 8-10 every night out.

PG which can do everything. Score, guard, rebound, assist, etc. :) Someone like Payton, Oscar or maybe Dikembe Mutombo? )))))

Curry is a great passer and definitely one of the smartest PGs in the game

Billups is smart and is a better scorer than he is passer. I like Nash but his defense is garbage and how many titles have Nash, Kidd, CP3 won?? PGs who can score whenever however are more effective. But they have to be efficient scorers, unlike Baron Davis or Stuckey.

Edit: btw my favorite PG in the NBA right now is Deron Williams. Great passer and scorer!

Nash has 2 mvps...No other point guard is going to win 2 MVPS, Not Paul, Not Deron, and definitely not rose or rondo. The choice is obvious, a smart, passing Pg, with the ability to shoot and run the offense while making smart decisions for his team.

That, the system the team plays, & the stile of the SG next to him.

If the SG is more of a catch & shot, then the PG should be more of a distributor. But if your SG is a slasher then a catch & shot PG would be best.

So do a lot of others but it is insulting to these proven vets to classify them with the up & coming who haven't proven crap yet.:down:


There is a big difference in what a player does in a year a half, compared to a 13, to 15 year career. :crazy:

Like i said it,s insulting.:bang:

You're right, you can never predict everything 100% correct. But with the way Lebron, Dwight, and Durant are playing, they are more than likely are going to control the MVP's for the next decade. Just aswell, i highly doubt any of the current guards (Rubio and wall included) are going to make as big of an impact as the Best player in the world in Lebron, let alone two rising superstars in Durant and Dwight, not to mention wade and Kobe are still always hanging around playing AMAZINGLY.

I'd be willing to be massive amounts of money that no PG for the next decade will win more than 1 MVP award...(if a pg even wins the MVP in the next decade, that is.)

I'd rather my point guard be smart/great passer... I would want them to be a great ballhandler and able to beat his man at will. I like point guards who try to get their teammates involved, but have the ability to score when when needed. Like CP3 and Steve Nash, both are capable of dropping 30 but always try to make plays for their teams.

A Magic Johnson type of point gaurd. Some one who understands when to score. Pass first, and defense. If he averages 10 points and 10 assists, i'd be fine with that. Aslong as he is the tough nose defender. A point gaurd can CONTROL BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL.







Watch out for Jrue Holliday.

I forgive you my son.:p




It,s not about Nash in particular, it has to do with all the young players coming up, in comparison with those that have been producing for many years.

I just think that all these young guys should work their way up, just like every other player who came before him. No free ticket just cause your name is so, & so.


Sorry if my 1st post came off too arrogant.

If you read my other post you will understand that i think neither have the right to be talked about in the same sentence as players like Nash, & even Billups yet. Give them at least 5 more years of consistent play, & let them prove it that way before anything.
