Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – By the time we reach the top three point guards, you’d expect a guy like Derrick Rose to be in the mix, right? If it weren’t for his injury-plagued career, he would be.
Contrary to that is the likes of John Wall, who’s brought his winning ways to the Washington Wizards from the college juggernaut that is the University of Kentucky.
Wall has helped lead the Wizards to be the best dark horse anyone could ask for the past couple of years, and now with everyone’s pattern of play down pat the Wizards could well be on their way to a title near you.
Ben Buchanan – John Wall was an All-Star Starter for the East team during his impressive 2014-2015 campaign where he averaged an impressive 10 assists for Washington. He was the leader of the team that would ultimately end up losing in the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs. Wall isn’t a very good shooter (only hits 30 percent from 3 -, below the league wide 35 percent average), but he still manages to score 17.8 points per game. He’s a very strong finisher around the rim, that along with his athleticism leads to many highlight plays.
Steve Turner – John Wall is easily one of the best point guards in the game right now. He’s a true point guard, but has the ability to get a bunch of buckets. He’s an elite passer and keeps making insane lay ups with that 360 finish. I’ve never seen anything like this guy. He’s crazy athletic for his size and amazing guy to have running your team’s offense.
Sauping R. Arguello – Wall shows flashes of being considered a top two/three point guard but then hits some rough patches throughout the season. He needs to maintain a level of consistency to move up this list. He has all the skills and physical attributes but he must continue improving on his jump shot.
