    Athleticism: john wall. or rose

    Defense: rondo. jkidd is second. did a great job in the finals.

    Ball Handling: chris paul. or rondo.

    Quickness: john wall. fastest dude in the nba

    Scoring: rose. one of the best scorers in the league.

    Layups/Dunks: rose. dude got mad hops

    Mid Range Shooting: steph curry nash or cp3. all amazing shooters.

    3-Point Shooting: steph curry. lights out shooter

    Efficiency: cp3. his player efficiency rating is 6th in the league.

    Clutch: nash. dudes hit some big shots in his career. cp3's a close second tho

    Basketball IQ: rondo. coaches say theyve never coached a guy like him before

    Showmanship: rondo with his fancy passing and ball fakes and tricks.

    overall id have to say is chris paul is the most well rounded point guard, followed by deron williams, derrick rose, rajon rondo, then russell westbrook. rondo excels in a few categories, but while his strengths are strong, his weaknesses are also very weak (like shooting).

    Best overall as of now is... Derrick Rose. He is a young PG who is as physical as they come. He's aggressive and doesn't have many downsides. He's the type of PG that is changing the game of basketball at the PG position.

    Edit: Am I the only non-douchebag here that's not giving thumbs down to everyone else?

    Athleticism: Russel Westbrook

    Defense: Rajon Rondo

    Ball Handling: Chris Paul/Steve Nash

    Quickness: John Wall

    Rebounding: Uh...6 years ago I'd say Jason Kidd, now I guess Rajon Rondo

    Passing: Steve Nash

    Scoring: Derrick Rose

    Layups/Dunks: Rose/Westbrook

    Mid Range Shooting: Chris Paul

    3-point shooting: Stephen Curry

    Efficiency: Steve Nash for sure..

    Clutch: Derrick Rose

    Basketball IQ: Steve Nash/Jason Kidd

    Showmanship: Does this mean who is the most flashy? Monta Ellis. He's actually a PG, but made to play SG cus of Stephen Curry.

    Best Overall: I'd say Deron Williams, but his stats might be inflated because of the teams he plays for.

    Overall, I think it's a tie between D-Will and CP3. Those two are the TOP 2 Point Guards in the NBA today. Yeah Derrick Rose won the MVP, but he has to improve in a couple of areas (assists for example) before he can even be considered an ELITE PG. He seems more of like a shooting guard rather than a point guard, like Gilbert Arenas was.
