ORLANDO, Fla. — Point guards in the NBA come in all shapes and sizes. Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook brim with explosiveness. Chris Paul, Steve Nash, and Deron Williams are supreme masters of pick-and-roll basketball. Then you have the up-and-comers like Kyrie Irving and Ricky Rubio. Aided by the league’s hand check rules, it’s not outlandish to say we’re witnessing a golden era of floor generals.
That being said, if you could build the perfect NBA point guard, what attributes and skills would that player have? I decided to ask guys like Paul to see what they had to say.
