Where does D-Will stack up?

The NBA’s point guard position seems to be deeper than it ever has been.

That said, where does the Nets’ Deron Williams fit in among the league’s best floor generals?

D-Will has said he doesn’t care about rankings, just winning. In 2010, GMs voted Williams as the best point guard in the NBA. But going into the 2012-13 campaign, none did. (Billy King would have but couldn’t vote for his own guy.)

Williams, plagued by injuries, certainly didn’t play like an elite point guard in the first 50 games of the season, but after getting healthy, he turned things around.

This postseason proved to be Stephen Curry’s coming-out party, while Tony Parker may end up with his fourth NBA title in a couple of weeks.

Williams and Chris Paul were both bounced in the first round of the playoffs, and Russell Westbrook suffered a season-ending knee injury in Round 1 and had to undergo surgery.

Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo are also recovering from similar devastating injuries; Rose’s cost him the entire season.

Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are the last two Rookies of the Year and are at the top of the emerging NBA point guard list along with Curry. And who could forget about first-time All-Star Jrue Holiday?

Yep. That’s a pretty good crop. Where does D-Will fit into it? Let us know in the comments.
