The 2020-21 NBA season is 3 weeks old, and we’ve already seen a lot of things unfold. Ranging from huge individual performances to players surprising the world with their improvements, it’s safe to say that this season has gotten off to an excellent start. With players constantly levelling their game up, player rankings consistently change. In some cases, a player will jump up the hierarchy significantly, and in other cases, the exact opposite happens.
Although this list isn’t based off solely this season due to a small sample size, there’s been enough to shuffle around the rankings a tiny bit. This small sample size will only account for part of the list, as other factors include how certain players have done in years past, playoff success, and most importantly, their overall game and skillset itself, which is a combination of offense, defense, efficiency, consistency, and other sub-categories inside of all those aspects. Who’s the best point guard in the league? Who’s the worst? Let’s find out.
30. Killian Hayes (Detroit Pistons)
2020-21 Stats- 4.6 PPG, 1.1 RPG, 3.6 APG, 2.4 TOV, 27.7 FG%, 25.0 3PT%, 50.0 FT%, 33.0 EFG%, 33.4 TS%, 21.1 MPG
Killian Hayes is a prospect who many people were high on coming into the draft, including myself. His offensive skillset was on full display overseas at Ratiopharm ULM, as his ability to create his own shot, find his spots regularly, and use his advanced repertoire of moves to score the rock at a high rate looked very promising. Combining that with his playmaking, he was a constant threat in the pick and roll & pick and pop, was great at finding weak side shooters as well as finding guys in isolation, and an incredible vision for the floor, Killian looked special offensively during the draft process. His off ball capabilities were the only thing in question on that end, but when he had the ball in his hands, he could make magic happen. Despite that, he hasn’t developed any feel for the NBA yet and hasn’t adjusted to the pace of the pro’s, which is understandable. I still have faith in Killian being a star down the line, but as of now, he can’t be ranked very high.
29. Elfrid Payton (New York Knicks)
2020-21 Stats- 13.6 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 4.6 APG, 2.9 TOV, 46.2 FG%, 42.9 3PT%, 45.5 FT%, 49.5 EFG%, 49.6 TS%, 27.3 MPG
By just looking at the stats, Payton looks like a solid starter in the league. But when you dive deep into his game, he’s really not. Payton’s a solid on ball playmaker, nothing great, but he’s respectable enough in that aspect. Other than that though, he really brings nothing to the table. He takes bad shots, takes touches away from the young guys who need the ball to develop more, he’s not a very good defender in any stretch of the imagination, he’s got little if not zero versatility on offense, and he’s a bad shooter. I can envision him succeeding in a bench floor general role, but with the way the game has evolved, players of this archetype have been left in the past, and his game doesn’t line up with the timeline of today’s NBA.
28. George Hill (Oklahoma City Thunder)
2020-21 Stats- 12.8 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 3.6 APG, 0.8 TOV, 52.2 FG%, 43.5 3PT%, 75.0 FT%, 63.0 EFG%, 50.2 TS%, 24.4 MPG
George Hill has been one of the leagues more consistent role players over the past decade. He’s a very well rounded player, as he’s a good scorer, defender, and shooter who can play the role of a floor general due to his high IQ for the game, and he can also play without the ball in his hands, as he’s shown that’s a strength of his playing next to dominant on ball playmakers in the past such as LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo. George Hill could play a very valuable piece to multiple contending teams due to his all around game and portability, and he’s been one of the best backups in the league for quite some time; however, compared to other starters, he’s below average, warranting a low placement.
27. Patrick Beverley (Los Angeles Clippers)
2020-21 Stats- 9.1 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 1.5 APG, 0.9 TOV, 50.0 FG%, 52.9 3PT%, 83.3 FT%, 68.0 EFG%, 69.3 TS%, 24.6 MPG
Patrick Beverley gets a good amount of hate from the basketball audience due to his antics & emotions, and yes, at times they can be out of line, but there’s no denying he’s a solid NBA player. He doesn’t bring much offensive value; he’s a solid shooter but that’s really about it. What makes him a valuable piece to pretty much any team is his defense. He’s a hard nosed defender who gives 110% effort on that side of the ball. He brings great perimeter defense, on & off ball defense, and for a player of his size he’s great in the post. Beverley also provides infectious energy which can give the Clippers momentum, which is something every team would appreciate. His defense is outstanding, but once again his offense is lackluster, resulting in a low placement on the list.
26. Devonte Graham (Charlotte Hornets)
2020-21 Stats- 9.9 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 6.1 APG, 0.7 TOV, 27.1 FG%, 32.1 3PT%, 75.0 FT%, 37.1 EFG%, 39.0 TS%, 30.7 MPG
If this was just based off this season, Devonte Graham would be even lower on the list. He’s been in a historically bad slump, as he’s shot 27% from the field on 12 attempts per night, which is unfathomable in the worst possible way, and combining that with his below average defense, at first sight you’d think he’s one of the worst players in the league. However, despite the poor percentages, his offensive game is terrific. As a scorer, he’s not very good on the inside, however, his shooting stroke is among the smoothest of all players in the entire league as he has a quick release that’s high arcing, and when his shots are falling, he can sleepwalk to 30+ points. But what’s even more impressive than his shooting is his playmaking. Graham is one of the 5 best young facilitators in the NBA right now, as he has an assist to turnover ratio of 6.1-0.7, and unlike his shooting splits, this is unfathomable in all the right ways. He’s got such great court vision, as he can find guys in the open court and half court effectively, and his decision making and IQ as a passer is off the charts. I believe Graham serves better running the bench unit because of this aspect of his game, but compared to starters, due to his massive flaws, he’s clearly receiving a low ranking.
25. Coby White (Chicago Bulls)
2020-21 Stats- 16.4 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 5.4 APG, 3.1 TOV, 37.9 FG%, 36.2 3PT%, 84.6 FT%, 47.0 EFG%, 51.4 TS%, 33.6 MPG
Coby White, despite early efficiency struggles, has improved a ton in his sophomore season. The former Tar Heel is a versatile scorer who can play the 1 or 2 and score from 3 levels with an array of moves to get to his spots. The biggest improvement so far from White has to be the playmaking. Not only have his assists gone up from 3 to 5, but his reads have become more advanced, and even though he’s still not a great playmaker with an assist to turnover ratio of 5-3, he’s certainly improved. Look for White to continue to jump the ranks within the next few years.
24. Markelle Fultz (Orlando Magic)
2020-21 Stats- 14.3 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 6.1 APG, 2.6 TOV, 39.6 FG%, 25.0 3PT%, 88.9 FT%, 41.6 EFG%, 45.9 TS%, 30.1 MPG
Markelle Fultz had the roughest start to his career out of any number 1 overall pick ever. From being diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, to being restricted from shooting shots outside of 15 feet in practice, to forgetting how to shoot as a whole, and now turning his career around and looking like a promising starter for the future. Fultz is still very limited offensively, as he’s still an abysmal 3 point shooter, however, his mid range game is immaculate, as the way he finds his spots is a beauty to watch. And like Devonte Graham, he’s also one of the best young facilitators in the league. Fultz has turned his career around for the better, and has solidified himself as a serviceable starting guard in the league.
23. Tyler Herro (Miami Heat)
2020-21 Stats- 14.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 4.7 APG, 2.3 TOV, 46.6 FG%, 31.3 3PT%, 80.0 FT%, 53.4 EFG%, 55.6% TS, 32.5 MPG
After a great rookie year & playoff run from the 20 year old out of Kentucky, Herro has entered the starting lineup for a Miami team with title aspirations, and rightfully so. He’s a great scorer who can create his own shot from the 3 and the mid range, and also has solid off ball instincts. Over the course of last year, you can tell he’s continued to get stronger and more aggressive going for rebounds, as he’s tallying 6 a game this season. Along with that, his playmaking is better now. It’s nothing great, but it’s an improvement. His ability to get to the line still isn’t where anyone would want it to be, but his offensive game gets him a decent spot on the list.
22. Darius Garland (Cleveland Cavaliers)
2020-21 Stats- 17.2 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 6.3 APG, 3.0 TOV, 45.5 FG%, 46.9 3PT%, 88.9 FT%, 54.0 EFG%, 56.0 TS%, 35.8 MPG
Every year, there’s always a sophomore who had a rough rookie year who proceeded to breakout in their sophomore season, and that’s exactly what Garland is doing. His improvement efficiency wise might be the most impressive part, as it went up 5% for field goals, 6% for effective field goal percentage and true shooting percentage, and a whopping 12% for his 3 point percentage with the same number of attempts. His feel for the game has also come around, as he looked completely lost trying to run an offense in his rookie year, but he was able to adjust to the pace of the league effectively, and now he’s doing incredible.
21. Lonzo Ball (New Orleans Pelicans)
2020-21 Stats- 13.1 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 4.7 APG, 2.9 TOV, 42.2 FG%, 34.7 3PT%, 55.6 FT%, 52.4 EFG%, 52.9 TS%, 32.7 MPG
Lonzo Ball still hasn’t quite made that huge jump a lot of people expect him to, but his improvement has gone under the radar. He’s still a terrible free throw shooter, but his scoring has improved as he’s attacked the rim more this year, and his assists are down, but that’s only due to the fact that Brandon Ingram has taken on more responsibility as a playmaker for this team. Not only that, but his defense continues to improve in all facets, as he’s making an early case for an all defensive nod. Has the number 2 overall pick from 2017 been underwhelming? Yes. Is he still an above average starter? Also yes.
20. Dejounte Murray (San Antonio Spurs)
2020-21 Stats- 15.9 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 5.7 APG, 2.7 TOV, 46.1 FG%, 26.1 3PT%, 73.3 FT%, 49.0 EFG%, 50.3 TS%, 31.3 MPG
Dejounte has made the improvement that many have been anticipating for the past few years. Coming off an ACL tear, he had a rough 2019-20 season, but that was a readjustment season for him so it was expected. This year, his offensive game looks far more polished than ever before, as his slashing ability has tremendously improved, and he’s using his physical attributes, specifically his 6’10 wingspan, to his advantage on both ends of the court.
19. Mike Conley (Utah Jazz)
2020-21 Stats- 18.6 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 5.0 APG, 2.6 TOV, 46.4 FG%, 45.3 3PT%, 76.2 FT%, 58.8 EFG%, 61.2 TS%, 31.1 MPG
In the 2019-20 season, Mike Conley had by far his worst year as a pro. Dealt with nagging injuries all year long on top of having to adjust to a new system for the first time in his 14 year career. But now that he’s fully healthy and acclimated to the system, he’s building his status back up in the point guard ranking. He’s scoring on career high efficiency, and his all around offensive production has returned to what it once was. Don’t be surprised if Conley continues to fly up the ranks.
18. D’Angelo Russell (Minnesota Timberwolves)
2020-21 Stats- 19.1 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 5.4 APG, 3.7 TOV, 43.5 FG%, 40.4 3PT%, 65.0 FT%, 52.6 EFG%, 54.1 TS%, 30.3 MPG
D’Angelo Russell is a skilled scorer who can shoot the 3 at a high rate with his silky smooth form, and he’s also one of the best pick & roll ball handlers in the entire league. Outside of that though, Russell’s game is flooded with flaws. He’s a negative on the defensive end and is quite frankly one of the worst defenders in the league, he’s never had a great assist to turnover ratio, he’s one of the streakiest players in all of basketball, is nonexistent without the ball and doesn’t have much playmaking value outside of the pick & roll, and has always had okay efficiency, nothing spectacular in that regard. Russell is extremely talented, but the negatives tend to outweigh the positives.
17. Dennis Schroder (Los Angeles Lakers)
2020-21 Stats- 15.8 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 5.0 APG, 2.8 TOV, 44.5 FG%, 35.5 3PT%, 81.0 FT%, 49.5 EFG%, 52.8 TS%, 31.1 MPG
Some may make the argument that despite what the depth chart says, LeBron James is truly the point guard for the Lakers, which is understandable; however, that should not diminish Dennis as a player. He’s a shifty guard who has a bewildering change of speed and overall is one of the fastest players the league has to offer. He’s a great scorer who can create his own shots and find his spots, and his elite off ball skills make him even more impactful. He’s also an above average defender, so that combined with his offensive game gets him in this range for a ranking.
16. Malcolm Brogdon (Indiana Pacers)
2020-21 Stats- 22.0 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 7.0 APG, 1.7 TOV, 51.8 FG%, 44.7 3PT%, 83.3 FT%, 61.0 EFG%, 63.2 TS%, 37.0 MPG
Year by year, Malcolm Brogdon has a very, very productive season, but nobody ever notices, and this year is no different. Brogdon is on pace to have yet another career year with his averages on top of his other worldly efficiency, and you could argue that his stats are only this good due to a 7 minute increase, however, I beg to differ, as his efficiency has taken a step up. Brogdon transitioned from a perfect off ball threat with minimal floor general duties with Giannis Antetokounmpo on historic 50/40/90 splits to full time floor general & primary playmaker in Indiana and he’s done more than thrive in both roles. Brogdon can do it all; shoot, score, play-make, defend. Whatever you need him to do, he can do it.
15. John Wall (Houston Rockets)
2020-21 Stats- 21.3 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 6.3 APG, 4.0 TOV, 44.2 FG%, 26.3 3PT%, 86.7 FT%, 49.0 EFG%, 54.6 TS%, 35.7 MPG
John Wall is without a doubt the hardest player to rank on this list. Coming off two major injuries that sidelined him for 2 years, nobody knew what we were going to get with Wall. There was a chance he returned to form or close to it, but there was also a chance that this would ruin his career entirely. So far, Wall has put up great numbers, and watching him play, it looks as if he’s regained his inhumane speed, his handle looks up to par, and his playmaking instincts and decision making is still there. He still has the nagging flaws he had back in DC as he’s an abysmal shooter and turnover machine, but seeing everything else, it seems as if Wall is back like he never left.
14. Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies)
2020-21 Stats- 26.3 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 6.3 APG, 3.3 TOV, 54.5 FG%, 33.3 3PT%, 84.2 FT%, 57.3 EFG%, 62.3 TS%, 27.0 MPG
Before Ja Morant went down with a frightening ankle sprain that will sideline him for 3-5 weeks, he was looking like he was bound for a massive leap. The reigning rookie of the year shows advanced poise as well as an advanced feel for the game considering he’s in his 2nd year as a pro, and whenever he’s in the game, he’s single handedly able to control the pace of the game due to that. He’s shown that he can be a primary playmaker on a playoff caliber team, as his veteran like IQ, contagious energy, and on ball playmaking skills are all at an elite level already.
13. De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings)
2020-21 Stats- 20.6 PPG, 3.1 RPG, 6.3 APG, 3.1 TOV, 42.5 FG%, 31.0 3PT%, 71.7 FT%, 46.3 EFG%, 51.3 TS%, 33.9 MPG
Fox is one of the most electrifying players in all of basketball, as he uses his lightning speed and eye popping athleticism to make highlight reel plays and pump up his teammates. He’s a great playmaker as his decision making skills are remarkable combined with his elite passing, and his scoring is also notable as he’s great at getting to the rim due to his insane burst. He’s an above average defender as well as he has quick hands and gets into passing lanes with ease. He’s neutral as a shooter, not a knockdown guy, however, he’s someone the defense must respect.
12. Kemba Walker (Boston Celtics)
2019-20 Stats (hasn’t played thus far due to injury)- 20.4 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 4.8 APG, 2.1 TOV, 41.9 FG%, 36.0 3PT%, 83.7 FT%, 48.6 EFG%, 57.5 TS%, 31.1 MPG
Kemba Walker is one of the craftiest little guards in the entire league. He’s an elite scorer who gets his buckets in the most creative scenarios and uses his small size to his advantage which is something guys of his size need to master. He’s a great shot creator with one of the quickest releases in the entire association, and he’s one of the best ball handlers in the league as he uses his tight & quick handle to get past players who are bigger and stronger than him. He isn’t a good defender due to his size but his offense is enough to warrant a placement this high.
11. Russell Westbrook (Washington Wizards)
2020-21 Stats- 20.6 PPG, 11.2 RPG, 11.8 APG, 4.8 TOV, 38.6 FG%, 22.7 3PT%, 69.0 FT%, 41.1 EFG%, 45.3% TS%, 37.4 MPG
Some have Russell Westbrook inside the top 3, others have him outside of the top 10. Russ is one of the most inconsistently ranked players along the fanbase, as he can be literally anywhere, but I believe that this is the perfect spot for him. Despite the many flaws he has which range from terrible shot selection, low IQ, lots of turnovers, bad defense, and a lack of any jump shot, Westbrook is still a phenomenal player in this league. He’s one of the best passers in the game, he’s ferocious getting to the rim with his incredible athleticism, and is one of the best leaders and tone setters in the entire league. Despite all the criticism he receives, he’s still a top notch point guard.
10. Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets)
2020-21 Stats- 22.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 3.0 APG, 2.0 TOV, 48.9 FG%, 39.0 3PT%, 79.4 FT%, 57.6 EFG%, 62.2 TS%, 35.2 MPG
Coming off a historically good Western Conference Finals run, Jamal Murray has jumped the rankings more than any other player has in the past few months. He’s an elite 3 level scorer who has a really pretty jumper and has a knack for hitting extremely tough shots, especially down the stretch. He’s amazing off of screens, and he’s constantly relocating without the ball to get more open looks. Defensively, Murray is quite underrated. He’s nothing to write home about, but he’s a solid defender who uses his frame wisely on that end. Murray can easily jump up 3-4 spots on this list by the end of the year, or he can fall 5-6 spots on this list, but as of now he cracks the top 10.
9. Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks)
2020-21 Stats- 15.4 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 5.3 APG, 1.4 TOV, 51.8 FG%, 42.9 3PT%, 100 FT%, 60.8 EFG%, 62.7 TS%, 30.3 MPG
If you looked at the raw numbers for Jrue Holiday and have never watched him play, you may be wondering, why is he so high? Well, Holiday may just be the definition of “box score doesn’t tell it all”. He’s a pretty good scorer and great playmaker, but his strong suite is easily his defensive capabilities. He’s a top 3 guard defender in the league, and overall he’s a top 10 defender. He’s elite in every category defensively; on ball, off ball, in the post, in passing lanes, Holiday can do it all on that end. Now that he’s on a contender, his true impact will be showcased to the entire world.
8. Ben Simmons (Philadelphia 76ers)
2020-21 Stats- 13.3 PPG, 9.9 RPG, 7.0 APG, 3.4 TOV, 50.7 FG%, 100.0 3PT% (one attempt), 61.1 FT%, 51.4 EFG%, 54.8 TS%, 32.4 MPG
Ben Simmons can do most things on the court at an extremely high level. One of the most versatile defenders in the league as he’s comfortably a top 5 defender, great slasher due to his combination of size, strength, and mobility, can play 4 of the 5 positions effectively, top 3 passer in the league, and he’s one of the best transition players in basketball. However, his biggest flaw is a really, really massive flaw, and that happens to be the most important thing in the modern NBA, the ability to space the floor. If Ben could even do this at a minimal level, he would be higher, the problem is he’s really just a liability in the half court. Defenses refuse to acknowledge him on the perimeter due to his unwillingness to incorporate any perimeter skills into his game. Ben is a very well rounded player outside of this, but this flaw drops him a ton.
7. Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks)
2020-21 Stats- 28.6 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 9.1 APG, 4.4 TOV, 44.4 FG%, 33.3 3PT%, 87.1 FT%, 50.0 EFG%, 61.2 TS%, 33.1 MPG
Trae is the complete opposite of what I just said about Ben Simmons. One of the best offensive players the league has to offer due to his star level scoring ability and incredible playmaking skills due to his combination of elite on ball and off ball playmaking. Trae is literally everything you’d want and more in your starting point guard offensively. Problem is, he is literally the worst defensive player in all of basketball. Since offense is clearly the most important aspect of the game, Trae ranks in the top 7 due to his near perfect offensive skillset, but I’d be lying if I said defense didn’t affect his ranking negatively.
6. Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors)
2020-21 Stats- 18.7 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 7.7 APG, 3.2 TOV, 40.5 FG%, 35.4 3PT%, 90.0 FT%, 50.6 EFG%, 57.6 TS%, 36.7 MPG
Kyle Lowry has flown under the radar as one of the most consistent stars in the league, as for 7 straight years, he’s been an All-Star caliber player, tallying 6 appearances in the illustrious All-Star game. He’s got it all; elite defense, elite playmaking, great scoring, top notch leadership, extremely high IQ & impact. The former NBA champion doesn’t have a flaw in his game, as he is the epitome of an all around player and deserves more respect.
5. Chris Paul (Phoenix Suns)
2020-21 Stats- 13.4 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 8.3 APG, 2.0 TOV, 41.8 FG%, 33.3 3PT%, 95.5 FT%, 46.2 EFG%, 53.0 TS%, 29.9 MPG
Like some of the others ranked high on this list, Chris Paul doesn’t put up the fanciest stats, but he makes up with that because his on court play is what shows his true impact. He’s one of the best playmakers in the league, a great shooter, solid scorer, and good rebounder for his size. He’s one of the best in the entire league at getting to his spots, and he’s also one of the 5 best closers in the league. He’s an all time great decision maker with some of the best IQ and poise in NBA history. Since arriving in Phoenix, he’s been a big part in changing the culture to a more team oriented style. He changed the culture in OKC and shocked the world with them, and he’s doing the same for a Suns team who desperately need his services.
4. Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn Nets)
2020-21 Stats- 27.1 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 6.1 APG, 2.1 TOV, 50.4 FG%, 42.6 3PT%, 100.0 FT%, 59.6 EFG%, 63.0 TS%, 33.0 MPG
Say what you will about Kyrie Irving, there’s no disputing the level of player he is. He’s an elite scorer and shooter as he is fully capable of being the 2nd guy on a title team, he’s been madly efficient his entire career, and when you take into context the level of difficulty for his shots, it just makes it that much more impressive. He’s also an underrated playmaker, as he’s a great passer and above average without the ball. Oh, and he also happens to be one of the most skilled players ever and the best ball handler ever. Kyrie is a special offensive talent and deserves a spot this high.
3. Damian Lillard (Portland Trail-Blazers)
2020-21 Stats- 26.0 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 6.6 APG, 3.0 TOV, 41.7 FG%, 35.1 3PT%, 90.2 FT%, 51.5 EFG%, 58.9 TS%, 36.0 MPG
Lillard has consistently been one of the best scorers and overall offensive players in the entire league for the past 6 years. He’s such a polished scorer due to his three level scoring and all time great shooting, he’s got one of the most advanced collections of moves in the league, and his playmaking has constantly improved year by year with decision making and IQ improvements. He just came off an underrated season, not just from a current standpoint, but all time, as his offensive production, impact, and efficiency were through the roof, ultimately making it a historic season. He’s also an extremely good leader as he constantly sets the tone for these Portland teams to get them going. Lillard is the complete package offensively and is exactly what a team needs in an offensive engine.
2. Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks)
2020-21 Stats- 25.8 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 7.2 APG, 3.7 TOV, 44.2 FG%, 19.5 3PT%, 80.4 FT%, 47.5 EFG%, 54.4 TS%, 32.3 MPG
Luka Doncic is rising quicker on player rankings than most players ever do. In just his 2nd season, the Slovenian point forward put up 29 PPG, 9 RPG, 9 APG and led Dallas to the 7th seed while being the anchor of the best statistical offense of all time. Although he’s started off a bit slow this year, he’s still one of the best playmakers in the league, an amazing scorer and rebounder, one of the best at getting into the lane in the league, and he has a feel for the game that’s unteachable. He’s not a great shooter from beyond the arc nor is he a great defender, however, his offensive versatility and impact makes him one of the league’s elite.
1. Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
2020-21 Stats- 32.0 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 6.4 APG, 3.6 TOV, 46.3 FG%, 36.9 3PT%, 98.2 FT%, 56.7 EFG%, 64.5 TS%, 33.0 MPG
Nothing has changed here. Stephen Curry is still the best point guard in the NBA, and it isn’t relatively close. All of these narratives against him are completely false, as he’s still pretty easily the best offensive player in the league. Not only is he the best offensive player in the league, he’s also the best offensive player ever. No other player in league history has Steph’s combination of all time great scoring, playmaking, shooting, efficiency, and offensive impact. That combined with the fact that he was the offensive engine on the best team we’ve ever seen should be enough to make him the best offensive player ever by a good amount. Steph isn’t “washed” like the critics say, he’s still the exact same player he once was.
