Just as the center position is currently dying and in need of an infusion of talent, the point guard position is completely thriving and just gets better and better after every draft.

The rules also favor shooting guards, but you aren't seeing a renaissance at that position. In fact, there aren't many really good young 2s in the current NBA. They have the same advantages by attacking from the perimeter as PGs.


I said the new rules favor exceptionally 'quick' players, and most SG's aren't as 'quick'. However, guys like Monta and Wade certainly benefit from the new 'no-touch' rules as well.


It's funny that one would even think it's all just a coincidence. The NBA fundamentally changes the game to improve perimeter play, and all of a sudden we are in the "era of PG's", and we can't find a post player to save our lives.

Also, size/strength doesn't matter much now since there is no contact allowed. A small, quick guy in the past could be pushed off his spot, and 'manhandled' to an extent, which would reduce his quickness. Now, there are no consequences for being small, or weak. If you get touched, just throw your arms up, and the whistle usually blows.

Default Re: Does NBA needs to make things more difficult for PG's?

I have a feeling that over the next 5-10 years we will see a bit of a shift. The reason I say this is because the NBA changes it's rules to best maximize it's potential stars' marketability. Meaning they will change the rules to make certain guys look better.

Now right now there is a wealth of guards. And not as many elite bigs. You have a handful of elite guys, and a few more top notch guys who could get there but Shaq is out, KG and Duncan are getting old and it's easily a star guard driven league.

But the talent that is coming into the NBA this off-season is heavily big man oriented. This draft should be crazy good, and the talent is heavily in the size department. Now they are sometimes hard to work with because they often lack the skill set coming in, however this class is already very skilled to go along with their talent. I think soon enough we will be seeing an evening out in the rules because the league is going to start evening out in talent.

But that's just me.

I'd say it's fine the way it is. If you think about it, the top 4 best players in the league right now aren't PG's in Lebron, Kobe, Durant, and Howard, and really you could consider Rose a hybrid gaurd.
Plus the PG's who are thriving are your pass first type PG's. So in theory it's the PG's that play the position the right way are the ones who are successful. It's good for basketball in general.

I counted 29 point guards. I wonder which team is missing.
