Re: Terrell Brandon: The Best Point Guard in the NBA?
It's kinda like putting Westbrook as the best PG in a modern cover. Controversial, but not as far fetched as say, placing a guy like Rudy Gay as the best SF.
The dude did put up some really great numbers the year before (19-3-7-2 on 47/39/89 with a ridiculous 1.9 TOPG, also 25 PER). KJ was on a team that won 41 games WITH Barkley, Tim Hardaway played only 28 games that year. Penny, Stockton, Payton - sure I'd take them over TB.
I think it was more hype than anything. Maybe since the league was so devoid of great point guards, they wanted to stir the pot a bit.
