This is a smart list that most people will agree with.
It’s not shocking to see Curry sitting at the top because, even after so many years, few players can reach the heights of Curry’s talent, especially from all over the court.
Doncic is another guard who is celebrated by just about everyone so his taking the second spot on this list also isn’t surprising.
It is exciting to see Teague give love to Fox and Brunson.
Over the last few seasons, these two have really grown into their own and helped their teams reach the postseason.
Fox’s Sacramento Kings are now playoff contenders after decades away and Brunson’s New York Knicks have built a very special core that could find them a lot of success far into the future.
This list proves that Teague really knows basketball – and also that there are a lot of great point guards in the league.NEXT: Analyst Previews A Scenario Where Damian Lillard Stays In Portland
