Best NBA Shooting Guards of All-TimeBy Shane R
Shooting guards are one of the most dynamic positions in all of the sports the world has to offer. There have been so many through the years that it is a challenge to only pick a few. Here is us doing our best.
4 – Allen Iverson
Iverson holds career averages of 26.7 ppg and 6.2 assists per game (apg). Though he never won an NBA title, he did win the MVP during his storied career. Over the years, Iverson, standing only 6’0″ on a good day, won 4 NBA scoring titles.
3 – Dwayne Wade
The Flash was one of the best at getting to the rim with reckless abandon. During his career, Wade won 3 NBA titles and a Finals MVP as well. One of Wade’s best playoff performance was against the Dallas Mavericks in 2006. During the series, the shooting guard averaged 34.7 ppg, 7.8 rpg, and 3.8 apg, which had not been seen since Michael Jordan.
2 – Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant was one of the most clutch NBA players of all-time. During his best statistical season, the Black Mamba scored 35.4 ppg and 4.5 apg. Surprisingly, Kobe only won 1 MVP during his illustrious career.
1 – Michael Jordan
When you think of the sport of basketball, Michael Jordan is one of the most celebrated athletes of all-time. Jordan won the MVP 5 times and Finals MVP all 6 times that he won the NBA title. Over his career, Jordan averaged a crazy 30.1 points per game and 5.3 assists.
