    Easily isaiah.

    If we're talking strictly point guards then I'd go:

    Steph
    Russ -would easily be #1 if he could shoot like Steph
    CP3
    Lowry
    Conley/Isaiah/Dame

    Conley and Lowry are interchangeable at 4 and 5 right now imo. You could make an argument for putting George Hill in there after his amazing playoffs. In years past I'd have included TP but that time is over now.

    By TP you mean Tony Parker ? Yeah, he deserved to be on that list but he is past his prime. Also what do you think about Dwayne Wade ? He is past his prime too I guess, or is he more like a tweener ?

    Wade has always been a combo guard. It's part of why he's only won with Shaq and LeBron. Granted, Heat were good in '14 and '15 but that's more the additions of Deng and Whiteside than anything.

    For my taste...
    1. Curry - he is just too much of a threat from anywhere on court, you can't match that
    2. Westbrook - for my standards an anti-PG, but screw my standards, he is just that good
    3. Conley - he plays D and he doesn't have to dominate the ball all the time, which is the cancer of today's PG's. In my opinion, pretty underated player.

    4.-10. most people would probably disagree, but I consider the rest of PG's relatively the same and I wouldn't want to mention anyone in particular. Some are great individualy, but suffocate their team, some are keeping the circulation going, but are nothing special, all the way to the ones overated in defense due to their marketing status, ballhogs or even as I'd call it... an assist-hoe's (by definition, he'll get that assist and be considered as a team player due to it, yet his team keeps on underperforming for some "strange" reason. Those types are the worst teamates to have)

    Decided on number 5 after watching the finals, it will be Kyrie. GSW would sweep them if not for him.

    Kyrie don't even feel like a PG.. He's really good scoring inside and out and rarely passes.
