The Under Rated and Forgotten Point Guard.

There are a ton of players out there that were great, not superstars, but good to great.   I am going to throw out a few names and feel free to add a point guard I am not writing. I think sometimes a guy hangs on and that is the person they remember.

Mark Price.  Great shooter and smart player. Got All Star nods, but never seemed to get the credit he deserved.

Tim Hardaway. Before he was branded a racist he was a top five point guard.  However, people seem to have forgotten the high scoring Point Guard. 

Muggsy Bougues  The man played 14 years.  That has to count for something.

Rod Strickland  If he was not a cancer the man would have been an elite PG.  He was smart and could shoot. However, he was too me me.

Sherman Douglas Some solid years in Miami and when Boston was terrible his floater in the lane was sometimes the only high light in the games I would have.

Kevin Johnson.   Yes KJ was a star, but people forget he was the engine of that Suns offense not Barkley.  Barkley was the knockout punch, but he got Thunder Dan his open threes.

Terry Porter.  The man could score and ran great offenses in Portland.

Charlie Ward.   Never made a lot of mistakes and knew when to take his shot.

Nick Van Excel.   Instant offense.  He could score and he always killed my Celtics.

Terell Brandon.  He was great till he got seriously hurt and was never the same guy.

The Under Rated and Forgotten Point Guard.

There is absolutely no more way Mark Price was better than Magic Johnson, Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Isiah Thomas, or even modern day stars like Chris Paul or Deron Williams. Mark Price was a great player, but he is not a top 10 point guard in NBA history.

Scott Skiles.  Solid leader that helped mold a young Magic team.

Kenny Anderson.   Hung on too long.  Defense was not that good, but he was an allstar for a reason and made many players better around him.
