As promised, here is my next installment of the best point guards in each division. This list is ranking only those guards from the Central Division.
|1||Derrick Rose||Chicago Bulls||Rose is a bit of a wildcard after only playing 10 games last season due to injuries, however it is hard to write off a former season MVP. Rose has proven himself quite the threat from anywhere on the floor with career averages of 46.0 FG%, 6.8APG, and 20.8 PPG. Providing Rose can regain his pre-injury form he is certainly the most scary player to defend on this list.|
|2||Kyrie Irving||Cleveland Cavaliers||Irving has a case to be number 1 choice on this list. Irving came into the league playing like an NBA veteran, and still only has 3 years experience. Irving is averaging quite exceptional numbers with a career 44.7 FG%, 5.8 APG, and 20.7 PPG. Entering his 4th year, and playing with LeBron James, it is only reasonable to expect Irving to get even better this year, which is truly scary.|
|3||Brandon Jennings||Detroit Pistons||Every year the same question seems to follow Brandon Jennings around. Will this be the year that he finally grows up, matures and becomes a productive NBA player realizing his vast potential? I am not convinced that will ever happen, however he did set his career high with 7.6 APG last season. Unfortunately he tied a career low with 15.5 Points Per Game, and only shot 0.2% higher than his career worst FG%. Jennings is always a threat to mature into a dangerous player.|
|4||Brandon Knight||Milwaukee Bucks||Brandon does not have a great shooting percentage, but did average 4.9 APG last year, He has shown improvement each year.|
|5||George Hill||Indiana Pacers||Hill provided solid offensive numbers last year shooting a 3P% of 36.5 and had a FG% of 44.2%. Hill's weakness is getting his teammates involved, and getting them open looks. Hill only averaged 3.5 APG last year, which is low for a Point Guard. I think losing Paul George will make his job even tougher.|
As always I welcome your feedback. Give me your list in the comments section and tell me how I did.
