Can Nash Reach Magical Heights? Greatest PG’s Ever

The 2010 playoffs currently showcase awesome point guards like Deron Williams and Tony Parker, not to mention Steve Nash and Jameer Nelson. But do they stack up on the all-time greatest point guard list?   

I created a formula that indicates how productive a player was per minute in their greatest season, and then combined it with a title wins/finals appearances list, then divided them. This list is a reflection of that final result.

31 Mark Jackson 30 John Lucas 29 Brandon Roy 28 Derek Harper 27 Damon Stoudamire 26 Reggie Theus 25 Rod Strickland 24 Terrell Brandon 23 Norm Nixon 22 Baron Davis 21 Walt Frazier

20 Chauncey Billups - hits the big shots and won a ring in 2004 against Lakers

19 Gail Goodrich - led LA to 1972 title and could score like crazy.

18 Mark Price - sweet passer and shooter, especially from the charity stripe.

17 Maurice Cheeks - won it all in 1983 with Dr. J to pass to. A steals wizard.

16 Michael Adams - played for Denver so wan't exposed but he was amazing. Check his stats. At only 5'9", to do what he did was great.

15 Jason Kidd - still seeking a title but can pass like no other player in history.

14 Tim Hardaway - did the UTEP 2-Step all over the NBA, even as a rookie. At 5'11" he was second place for NBA Rookie of the Year in 1989 to 7'1" David Robinson.

13 Tony Parker - being an awesome scorer and teammate has helped him win three titles with the Spurs, and maybe four after this year.

12 Calvin Murphy - at 5'9" he was great at controlling the pace of the game. He scored 17,949 points in the NBA and dished out 4,402 career assists and made it, but lost in the 1981 finals.

11 Lenny Wilkens - the true and pure point guard scored 17,772 career points, passed off 7,211 assists and grabbed 5,030 rebounds in 1,072 career games. He's not a bad coach either.
