Top 10 All-Time Point Guards

Maurice Cheeks
Philadelphia 76ers
The glue of the Philadelphia 76ers' 1983 championship team would've ranked higher had he been more of an offensive threat, though that wasnít a requirement on a team with Julius Erving, Moses Malone and backcourt mate Andrew Toney. Cheeks was a reliable shooter (52 percent) and a terrific defensive player, who didn't gamble much yet still ranks fourth all-time in steals.
