Default Top 100 PGs

Very unofficial list, but I just came across this and it brought back some good memories. Some of this is WAAAY off, but it's still fun.

Jay Williams above Kenny Anderson and Chris Jackson is disturbing. Maybe just because I remember Anderson and Jackson fondly from when I was like 9 or 10, but damn, Anderson's Tech team and UNLV (Greg Anthony could go for the top 10, I'd say) made me a basketball fan rather than just a fan of Philadelphia college hoops (which is a world to itselfl, Doug Overton in the 80s..........).

Wow. Lynn Greer, i remember that guy. The Owls had no offense whatsoever, so they'd pass it around for 30 seconds, then Greer would heave a 3 over a double team and somehow make it-- that was their signature offensive play

Travis Ford is around 90 spots too far down, as is Wayne Turner (editing mistakes, i'm sure), but it's an entertaining list indeed

Most outrageous omission: Tony Miller. One of the best pure (read: poor shooting but great passing) PGs in college basketball during my lifetime

Bimbo Coles is #64... Wow. I agree about Ford and Turner of course. I think Rajon will make up for it though...

I don't think I've ever heard of him either. The top 100 point guards of the modern era, 1990-2005. Did they use peach baskets for goals before 1990? I think the modern era of college basketball started with the shot clock...

Apparently he was Marquette's PG from 1991-95 and his only real claim to fame is that he is fifth in career assists. His career numbers:

Tony Miller was the heart and soul of the Damon Key/JimMcIlvane era Marquette teams. He could beat anyone off the dribble or stop any PG on the other end, but was completely averse to shooting. One of those guys where #s couldn't possibly say it all, he had all the intangibles. Along with Muggsy Bogues, Miller is a hero to short guys who can't shoot and just love to play the game.

BlueBaron, you should KNOW who Tony Miller was. He single handedly destroyed UK's previously unstoppable full-court press in the 1994 NCAA tourney to upset the Cats by about a dozen points. Marquette's entire game plan was to get the ball to T-Mill and let him weave through the defense... and it worked!

Iverson with Georgetown, I would have him in the top 5 at least. I know when I was at school in Syracuse he was always the target to shut down.

I don't know about Jameer Nelson at number four...

And for college, I thought Felton was slightly below Deron but will be better in the NBA.

It is unfortunate that some of the better point guards have gone straight the the NBA in the last two seasons. Shaun Livingston and Sebastian Telfair could have been in the top 10, IMO. Others like Louis Williams and Monta Ellis could have improved a lot in college.

I dont know who made this list but i have to totally disagree with it...just look at number 1: Gary Payton? maybe like 10 years ago...and if your gonna go back like that then John Stockton should definitely be number 1...

Well, for one this is the best in college basketball since 1990 which disqualifies Stockton altogether. To be honest I don't recall John Stockon having that storied of a career at Gonzaga to begin with.
