Default Best shooting guard in the league?

Who would you put at the top. Myself, i'd go with Butler, Harden is too much of a liability on defensive side, Klay lacks ballhandling and shot creation skills and Butler is great on both sides of the court and he doesn't have one clear weakness as these 2 guys i consider other 2 best shooting guards in the league.

So my top 5 would be

Butler
Harden
Thompson
DeRozan
Redick

I guess you could put Hayward there if you consider him as a shooting guard...

Your choice?

Butler sucks.

My vote goes to Klay. Great shooter and good defense. Thats what I want from my SG.

At least for this season ?


1) James Harden
2) DeMar DeRozan
3) Jimmy Butler
4) Dwayne Wade
T-5) Thompson/McCollum/Middleton

I gave it a 3 way tie for 5th because even though Klay is the most efficient out of the 3, he's got by far the best team out of the group. I think he's got a huge advantage being on that team and he gets assisted a lot of shots, where as I don't see a drop off if Middleton or McCollum (offense at least) were there.

I put DeMar 2nd since Jimmy and Wade have missed a lot of time. He's done a lot for the Raps, even though he's not the best player on the team.


Harden is clear cut #1 for me, even if his defensive effort is cringe worthy bad.

Butler's durability is a concern.

Probably right on the money, but I'll put Klay above Wade because I expect more out of Dwyane.

I couldn't wrote McCallum or Redick over Wade .

Yes , Derozan has good form right now . He's on the Klay/Butler level . But Harden ? Harden way better .
