    The NBA's Greatest Shooting Guards

    1. Michael Jordan-"Air"

    Teams: Chicago Bulls (1984-93, 1995-98), Washington Wizards (2001-03)

    Titles: 6 (1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998)

    Honors: 14-time All-Star, 5-time MVP (1988, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1998), 6-time Finals MVP, Rookie of the Year (1985), Defensive Player of the Year (1988)

    The player: The standard by which all other players are measured.


    2. Kobe Bryant-"The Black Mamba"

    Team: Los Angeles Lakers ('96-present)

    Titles: 3 (2000, 2001, 2002)

    Honors: 10-time All-Star, MVP, 5 finals appearances, Fastest to reach 20,000 points, 6 time All-NBA first team, 6 time all-NBA Defensive first team

    One of the greatest competitors the game has ever seen, with an uncanny ability to score points and an incredible desire to win, it's by know accident, that the guy has accomplished so much all before the age of 30.

    3. Jerry West-"Mr. Clutch"

    Team: Los Angeles Lakers (1960-74)

    Titles: 1 (1972)

    Honors: 14-time All-Star, Finals MVP (1969), Hall of Fame

    The player: One of the toughest and most competitive players ever; there was nothing he couldn't do with the ball in his hands -- he could drive, make plays and shoot with range.

    4. George Gervin- "The Iceman"

    Teams: Virginia Squires (1972-74), San Antonio Spurs (1974-85), Chicago Bulls (1985-86)

    Honors: 12-time All-Star (9 in NBA, 3 in ABA), Hall of Fame

    The Iceman revolutionized the guard position, a true artist at 6 foot 8. He could score from anywhere and could score at anytime.

    5. Allen Iverson- "The Answer"

    Teams: Philadelphia 76ers (1996-2006), Denver Nuggets (2006-present)

    Honors: 9-time All-Star, MVP (2001), Rookie of the Year (1997)

    The Answer is, pound for pound, the toughest player ever. He has won four scoring titles and is third behind Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain in career scoring average.

    6. Clyde Drexler- "The Glyde"

    Teams: Portland Trail Blazers (1983-95), Houston Rockets (1995-98)

    Titles: 1 (1995)

    Honors: 10-time All-Star, Hall of Fame

    Drexler was as gifted athletically as any guard, and was explosive offensively.

    7. Reggie Miller

    Team: Indiana Pacers (1987-2005)

    Honors: 5-time All-Star

    The most prolific 3-point shooter in league history, and had the ability to hit clutch shots during crucial games.

    8. Joe Dumars

    Team: Detroit Pistons (1985-99)

    Titles: 2 (1989, 1990)

    Honors: 6-time All-Star, Finals MVP (1989), Hall of Fame

    Dumars was a lockdown defender and one of the most underrated players of his generation.

    9. Pete Maravich

    Teams: Atlanta Hawks (1970-74), New Orleans/Utah Jazz (1974-80), Boston Celtics (1980)

    Honors: 5-time All-Star, Hall of Fame

    In his era, Pistol Pete was the greatest basketball show on Earth. There was nothing he couldn't do with a ball.

    10. Tracy McGrady -T-Mac

    Teams: Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets

    Honors:7 time all-star, Career Average of 22.4ppg, 6.2rpg, 4.7apg, Ranked in the top 5 in playoff scoring averages (28.5ppg)

    One of the most electrifying guards of all-time, T-Mac can score at will and with his long arms, he's a nightmare to guard in the post.

    Honorable Mention: Earl Monroe, Mitch Richmond, Dwayne Wade (Will soon be on this list if he stays healthy), Dave Bing, Ray Allen

    Clyde Drexler > Allen Iverson.
    Pete Maravich > Reggie Miller.
    You forgot #8.

    Other than that, it's fine.

    Im watching the Lakers play the Celtics in 1966 on NBA t.v. right now. West is not as good as Bryant. I have seen 10 games that West has played. He is not the focus of the defense. He is not a defensive force. He accumulated some nice stats in an era where points, rebounds and assist came a lot easier than todays game due to the up and down game every team played. Each team looks like the Phx Suns. Their goal looks as if they want to get a shot off in under 7 seconds. West is going one on one against Sam Baker and is getting dominated in game 7. You are very nostalgic towards the older player but West is not in Kobe's class. He could not go left. If there was a zone defense that looked to keep the ball out of West hands like Kobe has to face now, he would be a non factor. West lost 9 times in the NBA finals playing with Baylor, Wilt and Gale Goodrich. NBA's 50 greatest players. Kobe played with one dominant player and was able to squeeze 3 rings out of him as opposed to West's 1. Its no contest.

    That's where I stopped taking what you were saying seriously. 10 Games is not enough to judge how good a player is compared to another.

    Jerry West was a great defender. He's More Clutch than Kobe. He has a Final's MVP. I could go on and on.

    If Kobe Bryant retired today, there is no way that you could label him over West. In the future, it's very possilbe, but now? No.

    The Lakers won 45 games that year and you're trying to spin it as if Jerry West failed. We're not talking about a 59 win Laker team losing to a 66 win Celtics team in 6 games, we're talking about a 45 win team beating back a 7 time in a row defending champion and stretching a series to the final moments of game 7. If it hadn't been for Jerry West averaging 34 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds and playing DPOY level defense they would have never even gotten half that far.
