    The C and SG position in the NBA.

    Center: Right now all we have is Dwight Howard as far as centers that are top players. Compared to past Centers.
    What has caused the center position in NBA to be so weak? The athletes are there...but there is no skill. Why? AAU basketball? College Coaching?



    Shooting Guard: Anyone noticing the talent drop off here? We have two aging greats in Kobe and Wade. After that it's probably Ginobli (past his prime) and....Harden? Joe Johnson? Eric Gordon? Who are the rising stars? At one point we had T-Mac, Vince Carter, Kobe, Ray Allen, etc. Seems like all the elite and young perimeter talent is playing SF or PG now.

    SG used to be the premier position.

    Now days it seems like everyone has a talented PG.

    The center drop off is often discussed, but the SG decline not so much. It's odd too, because although some PGs could probably make great SGs, they are not prototypical.

Melo will become the new Jordan of the league we are so lucky to have him!!!

    The rules have changed allowing super athletic point guards to take over the game, thats why the decline in SG talent imo.

    The C and SG position in the NBA.

    Centers and shooting guards are incredibly weak right now. Centers have been noticeably weak for a while now, but I think the shooting guard position is actually even more shallow at this point in time.

    Point guards, on the other hand, are incredible. This might be the richest time period ever seen at the position. Paul, Rose, Rondo, Parker, Williams, Westbrook, all superstars leading the way, along with legends like Nash and Kidd still kicking, and solid guys like Andre Miller still getting it done... And young guns like Holiday, Wall, Conley, Curry, Jennings, Collison, Lin, Chalmers, Felton, etc... And I know I left some guys out, but the position is ridiculously good right now. Those first 8 names I mentioned alone could all arguably be looked back on as top 15-20 or better at their position all time by the time they retire. And they're all playing now. Insane.

    And PG's have the ball in their hands to start almost every play, so they have the opportunity to call their own number.
