Who were the best NBA point guards in 2017-18?Bigger players are growing more skilled and taking on larger offensive roles in the NBA. And so the role of the league’s point guards continues to evolve. It was once almost solely this position’s responsibility to run the offense and distribute. But now, playmaking wings and big men have placed added importance on a point guard’s ability to space the floor with shooting and defend multiple positions. So here are the best NBA point guards of the 2017-18 season. Although we’re excluding those not healthy enough to muster 50 regular season games. Sorry, John Wall, Mike Conley, and Reggie Jackson.

20. Dennis Schroder
About four or five players could be in this spot, but Schroder gets the nod after proving he can take on a significant scoring load, averaging 19.4 points, albeit not very efficiently. His ability to speed into the lane makes him a solid playmaker. While he has the tools of a good defender, he has yet to put things together on that end.
