Kobe, D-Wade, Monta Ellis, Jamal Crawford, Eric Gordan, James Harden, J.R.Smith, Joe Johnson,Manu Ginobili, Kevin Martin, OJ.Mayo,Jordan Crawford,Lou Williams, Ray Allen, Klay Thompson, Ben Gordon and Andre Igudola are the top players listed at that position. D.Rose and Westbrook are really sgs that play the pg position. The best Shooting guards are able to just flat hit score.They look for their shot more than trying to help others get their shot (James Harden is an exception). Some started off as Point Guard but later on in their career switched positions. On most teams their best scorer is the shooting guard. You have the shooting guards that specialize in defense. You have some that are just bonifide scorers and you have those that do everything well. Efficiency, being healthy, playing smart and being a good team player are roles that help conclude which player is better than the other. Other factors are being able to defend, score, rebound, dribble etc. Leadership is good thing to go by also. After reviewing the list of players and things thay can and can’t do I’ve concluded that the Sg guard list is 1.Kobe Bryant 2.D-Wade 3.Russell Westbrook 4.D.Rose 5.James Harden.
