The Top Three Point Guards

And now the moment you have all been waiting for, the top three point guards in the NBA.
3. Chauncey Billups, Detroit Pistons
I had a hard time coming up with a third point guard and I must say it was a toss up between Billups and Tony Parker and I gave the nod to billups because of how their teams performed without them during stretches where they were injured. The spurs were a better team without Parker than the Pistons were without Billups. He is one of the strongest point guards in the league and a constant match up problem. And the fact he is one of the most clutch free throw shooters around definitely helps his case.

2. Deron Williams, Utah Jazz
Williams is one of the most complete guards in the league and could very well be the second coming of Jason Kidd. People will always ask whether or not the Jazz made the right decision drafting Williams over Chris Paul but williams is the perfect fit for Jerry Sloan's offense and a cornerstone for any organization.
1. Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets
Without question the best point guard in the league. He is as Scott Skiles would say "quicker than quick." Nobody has the vision and touch on his passes like Paul does. He single handedly has resurected the career of Tyson Chandler with his lob passes as they connected for almost 100 alley oops last season alone. Not to mention his lightning fast hands makes him a terror on the defensive end as well.
