Top 5 SG 2017-2018

Since starting this series i thought to myself what statics would help generate some disparity in my rankings of my top 5 players by position. So far i came up with 10 different categories , in this upcoming list i decided to break down 3pt shooting and mid-range shooting instead of just having outside scoring. Now there are a total of 11 categories with the highest possible score being 110. Let’s take a look on who are the top players in today’s league at their positions.

So far to me the top 5 SG in today’s game are as the following:

Players over 90=Superstar

Players over 80= All Star

Players over 70=Really good

For this position there becomes a huge drop off after the top 2 players at there positions because there isn’t that much talent here yet at the SG. The talent of the league has spread out to different positions.  A lot of SG on team’s have very specific roles. Either to spot up and shoot 3’s or usually to play defense. In today’s game the one on one stuff doesn’t work as well in team basketball. Today is more about spreading the court and finding open shooters. The elite players at the position are expect to do both be the team play-maker and also be able to get your shot.
