1. Who's the best point guard in the NBA?
Henry Abbott, ESPN.com: Chris Paul. Not only is he the most productive point guard on the court, but he also comes with enough leader's magnetism to lure a good coach into agreeing to break his contract with the Celtics. Powerful stuff.
Jeremy Gordon, Brooklyn's Finest: Chris Paul. The standards by which we define the "best" point guard are fairly fluid -- all of the top ones have singular qualities in their favor, such as Derrick Rose's penchant for attacking or Tony Parker's masterly control of the Spurs' system. But Paul controls the game's pace and sees the floor like no other, and can even score.
