My top 3 shooting guards

Kobe
Allen Iverson
T-mac


I believe that Iverson may be the better sg..but I'll choose Tmac over him on my team for the fact that he's more of a small foward, and can play both positions...

Kobe, Tmac, and Paul Pierce are all better than Iverson, but Pierce n Tmac are more like small fowards and more versatile..

Kobe can play 3 positions, plays better defense than all 3 players and makes plays when it counts

I like Paul Pierce, but he aint better than Kobe..maybe better than Tmac right now..pretty close, i'll say Tmac's better at the 2, Pierce is better at the 3..lol..if you guys understand what i'm sayin! i'm out...nite nite!

1. Kobe Bryant
2. Tracy McGrady
3. Paul Pierce
4. Vince Carter
5. Allen Iverson

If Vinsanity didn't wuss out towards the end of last season, I'd rank him #2. T-Mac's numbers are a bit inflated being that he has absolutely no help from his teammates, but he is an awesome player. But I give Kobe the #1 spot since he is the better defender out of all of them.

Well we all now that Iverson is the top SHOOTING GUARD off the COURT!!! HAHA

Anyways, Kobe is the best All Around Player, and has had the people around him to help him show his abilities.

But keep your head up because Paul Pierce is COMING!!!!

T-MAC is the Best Athlete, but unfortunately he is getting no love from Grant Hill and the rest of the Magic. The kid is too young to carry the whole franchise!!!!

1.Kobe
2-Pierce
3-Tmac

Pierce and Tmac are about equal, but I just don't think it's right to be as arrogant as Tmac is, what is he talking about when he says, he has no talent around him, what a great teammate he is.

GoCocs,

Be Honest...Name someone from the Magic that has any type of GAME. Hill doesn't count because he does not play.

Kobe has SHAQ

Pierce has Walker.

TMAC with SHAQ or Walker wouldn't be any better, but people would give him more love!!!

"Crazy Eyes" Grady gets all the attention on his team. He gets double and triple teamed all game long. Yet, he still puts up better numbers than Kobe.

If Kobe was the only option on a team his numbers would dwindle a little. No longer would his man leave him to help guard Shaq. If he were constantly double and triple teamed he would not put up as good of numbers as Grady.

Pierce in my opinion plays the best D out of all of them. He also scores the most points out of them. He led the league in total points and was third in points per game.



And the winner is:


Pierce

Kobe, no doubt.

He takes over when he needs to. Pierce and McGrady don't do that. No question that it's Kobe.

Paul Pierce isn't even in T-Mac's and Kobe's class yet:no: .

Who puts up the best stats? Pierce

Kobe is the most overrated clutch player in history. He has missed more game winners than he has hit. In the playoffs the only game winner he hit was a layup after he rebounded Derick Fisher's brick. And the play wasn't designed for Fisher, it was designed for Kobe but he dribbled it off of his foot and Fisher was forced to brick. Kobe went and got the rebound and hit a layup. That is the only game winner he hit in the playoffs.

The other one he attempted against the Kings he missed. He shouldn't even have attempted it. Robert Horry was open and probably would have hit it. But, no Kobe has to be the hero...


He makes foolish mistakes in clutch time.

Malakian...Have you been in a cave for the last 3 years or something??? Or let me guess...You haven't seen a Laker Game in 3 years???

What the hell are you talking about, Kobe isn't a clutch player??? And if Shaq wasn't there he wouldn't lead the league in scoring??

I know we are trying to rate 3 players here, but don't make any stupid comments like these...Pierce, T-Mac, and Kobe are all dope and all would put up 35 points on 35 shots a game if by themselves.

Please watch a Laker game without Shaq, and watch how everyone passes to Kobe and then just kicks it!!! The boy is Sick, He has Crazy Moves, and in the clutch...forget about it, KID IS MONEY!!!!

Turn around and talk out of your other hole next time!!!!!
