NBA’s “Commander in Chief”

Hey everyone!!! This being my first blog and all, let’s just say that I want to make a SLAM DUNK!!! Anyway, no more small talk. I am just a ordinary guy who loves the game so much that I live and breathe the game (funky armpit smell, but it’s reasonable). As a person who knows so much about all aspects of the game, let me say that I will now list the top 5 players of the game, by position, based on efficiency and value to their ball club. In this portion of my blog, I will list Point Guards, the “leaders” and “captains” of their teams who orchestrate how everything flows and dictate the tempo of the game. Finally, without me blubbering here so much, the list of the top 5 players based on their positions…starting with…

Point Guards

6a00d8341c630a53ef010536367525970c-800wi1) Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets, #3: Without question the most talented and extremely difficult point guard in League. He is a walking double double, averaging at least 20 points and 10 assist in the past two seasons. He is also one of the greatest, if not the best, on the ball defenders at his position. With Chris Paul steering the wheel down there in New Orleans and the new addition of Rebounding Fiend Emeka Okafor, the Hornets are once again set to be contenders for Western Conference title.

Steve Nash2)Steve Nash, Phoenix Suns, #13: The 2-time NBA MVP is now 35, however, his game does not show any sign of that. He is the Suns’ most intriguing player with his amazing shooting ability with another 50,40,90 season ( at least 50% from the field, 40% from the arc and 90% from the line).  Although he is now 35 years old, which is grandpa age in the NBA, he has an abundance of three-point shooting, clutch shots and razzle-dazzle plays still left in him. Most people might question if he has “enough left in the tank,” I believe that he has enough to help the Suns secure a playoff spot before he reached empty.

Tony Parker3)Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs, #9: The most underrated point guard in the NBA. His amazing ability to penetrate to the basket and score with contacts makes you think “Damn! This is a grand joueur (great player).” He had a solid campaign last season with that memorable double-nickel game scoring 55 points and dishing out 10 dimes. Those numbers were similar to someone that is not known all over the world and not known to popularize the game it self, some people might know him by the name of Michael Jordan, heard of him? Spurs are going to contend again for the Western Conference title and the NBA title with Parker at the helm.

Deron Williams4)Deron Williams, Utah Jazz, #8: A point guard who is not as popular as his counter part in Chris Paul, but just as effective and threatening. Deron Williams has the strength to take most guys off the dribble and is quick enough to take on anyone to basket and might even have a highlight dunk (Sorry Diogu). When left open, he will drill a three pointer and make you wish you weren’t the one guarding him. Although it is though playing in a competitive Western Conference, but with a healthy squad, the Deron Williams led Jazz can make some noise this upcoming season.

Gilbert Arenas5)Gilbert Arenas, Washington Wizards, #0: This choice was a though one. Looking at the point guards in the league now, Agent zero, if healthy, is always going to be a top five point guard. Now I use the word healthy lightly. I love Gilbert Arenas as a ball player, he has one of  the most deadliest shots you can think of and has destroyed foes with it and won several games for his team, as well. His health is my only concern and with training camp already underway, Gilbert Arenas is going to show us, the fans in particularly, that he is back to his All-Star-Clutch shooting self. With a healthy core ( him, Jamison and Butler) and solid additions in the off season, the Washington Wizards are sleepers in the east and can cause some havoc for the big-three (Boston, Cleveland and Orlando)

There will be a few more Point Guards on this list, but I want to hear your opinions and critics about my selections.  All comments are accepted…Just the fact that you viewed my blog is heart-pleasing!
