Point Guards are the players that are crucial to a team's success. Most teams that struggle mostly do so due to a lack of production by their PG.

The 76ers have invested heavily in their point guards by getting point guards as their #1 picks for the last 2 seasons. The Los Angeles Lakers without a top talent at that position for a long time but have now invested in the youth by drafting in Lonzo Ball. The Kings have drafted in De'Aaron Fox, the Knicks have gotten Frank Ntilikina and the Mavericks have gotten Dennis Smith Jr.

Let's look at the top 5 Point Guards in the NBA right now based on their form:

Honorary Mentions:

Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets):

Milwaukee Bucks v Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets

The Hornets man has been doing amazingly well for the past 2-3 years but unable to crack the top point guard list for a while. He has been the only bright light in a very bad Hornets roster, which has now been boosted by the arrival of Dwight Howard, who has surprisingly been in amazing form.

He has been averaging 22.3 points per game, 6.2 assists, and at least 4 rebounds a game. His all-around ability has been carrying the Hornets into contention. He has also been shooting 44.3% from the field, quite a deserving candidate for the top 5 list. But he gets pushed out only due to the form of the other players being a level of exceptional beyond Walker. But there is no reason you can't enjoy his amazing handles, such as the one in the tweet above.
