Welcome to the dog days of the NBA calendar! Although we’re still waiting on Eric Bledsoe and Greg Monroe to (most likely) re-sign with their respective teams, free agency is all but done with and the 2014 FIBA World Cup is still more than a month away. So what can we do to pass the time between now and the beginning of a new NBA cycle? NBA Power Rankings, of course!
Since there are still a lot of moving or floating pieces from free agency, we’re going to hold off on our preseason team rankings for a little while longer. But until then, we’ll be ranking the top 10 players in the NBA at each position, starting with 2014-15 projections for the point guards. Not only will we be looking at how these star point guards performed in 2013-14, but we’ll also factoring in age, injury history, advanced statistics, importance to their team, the conference they play in and much more.
Let’s get started.
Honorable Mentions: Mike Conley, Ty Lawson, Kemba Walker, Eric Bledsoe, Ricky Rubio, Derrick Rose, Jrue Holiday, Jeff Teague
