Point guard is arguably the most important position in basketball. Point guards facilitate their team’s offense. They are counted on to make big plays in crucial moments. And they are responsible for getting the best out of their teammates. Needless to say, in the NBA, the value of a dominant point guard cannot be understated. Here is a look at some of the greatest point guards in NBA history.

Kyrie Irving Has Been To Three Straight NBA Finals
Kyrie Irving still has a lot of basketball ahead of him, but he is already one of the best point guards to ever play in the NBA. He is unquestionably one of the quickest players and best ball-handlers in the league today, and he is a very underrated shooter. Irving spent the first six years of his NBA career with the Cleveland Cavaliers (who selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft) and is currently in the midst of his first season with the Boston Celtics.
Irving played a key role, alongside LeBron James, in leading Cleveland to the 2016 NBA title and two other NBA Finals appearances. Thus far, Irving has earned five NBA All-Star selections, one All-NBA selection, one NBA All-Star Game MVP award, and he won the 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year award.
