If you visit SheridanHoops.com with any regularity, then you know we recently wrote a piece listing the NBA's top 10 point guards.
The list includes some relative newbies such as John Wall and Kyrie Irving. It also does not include Deron Williams and Derrick Rose, who have not done enough of late to merit inclusion among the best players at arguably the most talented position in the league.
The folks at Rip City Radio 620 in Portland visit the site with some regularity, because they asked author Chris Bernucca to go on the air and discuss his No. 4 selection - Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Lillard has the least experience of any of the top 10. But he has crammed an awful lot onto his resume in just two years - a Rookie of the Year award, an All-Star berth, a playoff series win capped by his dagger 3-pointer at the buzzer. And just about anyone with a brain in their skull believes Lillard is going to get better.
On Tuesday afternoon, Bernucca appeared on the Wheels at Work show with Blazers radio play by play man Brian Wheeler and discussed the recent evolution of the NBA point guard from a passer to a scorer, why Rose and Williams didn't make the cut, and the attributes of Lillard, who is described as "easy to like."
Back in 2008, I covered the U.S. Olympic team in Beijing, where Jason Kidd was the No. 1 point guard, Chris Paul was No. 2 and Deron Williams No. 3 -- but it was a close contest between CP3 and DWill. They were considered equals then, but Paul is already having the type of season that shows why he has grown into the better player -- and why he is the more popular of the two (Blake Griffin as a running mate helps). Plenty on that and more from around the NBA, including the lack of an extension for Gordon Hayward and the strong start by the Indiana Pacers, in this podcast with Gordon Monson and Spence Checketts of 1280 The Zone in Salt Lake City.
