In a special report, ESPN has named the top 5 shooting guards of all time. Among them, Spurs fans will find the "Iceman," George Gervin.
ESPN asked 20 NBA experts for their lists of the top 10 shooting guards in NBA history. Players received 10 points for a first-place vote, nine points for second and so on down to one point for a 10th-place vote.
Not a surprise, though. Though not as versatile as some other guards, he was like a Ben Gordon on steroids. He would play 30-35 minutes and score 30 points on 50% FG shooting on a nightly basis, to go with 5-6 rebounds and 1-2 steals or blocks.
It's basically a matter of who, among Drexler, Gervin and Iverson you'll choose to leave out of your top-5.
