NBA's Top Shooting Guards

Dwayne Wade

Is there any player better than Wade at the whole let’s throw up a shot, get fouled, and make the shot? I can’t remember how many times he did that against the Pacers in their playoff series.  He’s a guy like Derrick Rose that plays with no fear.  Driving down the lane only to get knocked around.  But he knows how to play and that’s what counts.

Kobe Bryant

Hard to believe how long Kobe Bryant has been playing and the level of play he’s been at.  Truly up there in top shooting guards of all time even at this stage of the game, he’s one of the best active shooting guards.  He’s got plenty of hardware to show how good he is.

Manu Ginobili

On and off starter for the Spurs, but a guy who probably starts anywhere else he plays.  He’s got his own way of playing and it’s worked out well with Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.  When talking about a big three, you have to have those guys mentioned.

James Harden

Just like Ginobili, James Harden starts on any other team.  But he goes out huge in a sixth man role, and he’s showing that can it’s own position.  And who can look past his sweet beard?
