*Note: There is no specific order within each tier.
Tier 1 (A)
Chris Paul is clearly the top point guard in the game in my opinion and one of the best players in the entire league.
Tier 2 (A-)
Deron Williams probably doesn't belong in this category after his years with the Nets, but I'm not giving up on him just yet.
Tier 3 (B+)
With the exception of Rondo, this is a group of really talented up-and-coming point guards that are going to be total studs in their primes.
Tier 4 (B)
- Kyle Lowry
These are really good players. Some of them are on the way up, some of them are on the way down, but they're all right on the edge between solid starter and All-Star consideration. They all have their flaws
most players do.
Tier 5 (B-)
Rubio really need to become a better scorer before he makes the jump to a higher tier.
Tier 6 (C+)
Good, solid players, but nothing special.
Tier 7 (C)
All these players can start if they need to, but they'd be best coming off the bench on a good team.
Tier 8 (C-)
Tier 9 (D+)
Decent back-ups. They all have their strengths.
Tier 10 (D)
These guys can fill in as a back-up depending on how the rest of your roster looks.
Tier 11 (D-)
Tier 12 (F)
And there it is. What do the Bright Siders think of my first batch of grades/rankings/tiers?
