As we enter the dog days of the summer -- always a calm time in the NBA -- there are a few notable free agents still out there (Greg Oden, Mo Williams and DeJuan Blair come to mind). For the most part, though, we've got a pretty firm idea what the rosters are going to look like when the 2013-14 season tips off on Oct. 29. As the depth charts have filled, so have the forecasts generated by ATH coalesced.....

I strangely agree with this list, except the part about Tony not being top 10. Conley will be an All-star next year. Westbrook is the closest player to Chris IMO. Obviously I'd love to see Bledsoe crack the top 10, but I think he needs a year or two to understand how to lead a team. ....

Bledsoe won't crack the top 10 unless he posts identical or better numbers he had when he started last season, AND the Suns don't tank. Bledsoe will be a top pick for my fantasy team this year, round 3 or 4 in a big money league 14 teams for the win. Blocks at the PG spot are priceless. ....

Agree with this article. I think Tony Parker should be in the Top 10, not Top 5 however. I am curious to see where this guy ranks Blake once he goes through all of the power forwards. Also would not be shocked if this guy puts DJ pretty high up there for centers. I know people criticize DJ all the time but I expect big things from him this year, especially given the fact that Doc trusts DJ and plans....

The author is predicting a decline for Parker, but I disagree he will decline out of the top 10. Still, he had reasonings for his choices, so that's good, but this is ranking based on wins above replacement level, not necessarily who's better or best. ....

http://www.hoopsworld.com/top-6-2013-2014-nba-point-guards Hoopsworld have done a similar thing but have the top 6 pg's. 1) CP3 2) Parker 3) Rose 4) WB 5) Irving 6) Curry Which is closer to my order. ....

1) Cp3 2) WB 3) Parker 4) Rose 5) Curry 6) Irving Still think Irving is incredibly overrated. He is really really bad on defense. Not that Parker and Rose are good defensively either but he is way worse than even them. Love watching him offensively but watching him on D not so much. Also needs to improve A LOT in terms of his playmaking. ....

^He was absolutely atrocious in the Finals. 15.7/2/6.4/1 on 41% FG 28% from 3 and 73% from the line.... The Spurs would have won game 6 if he wasn't complete garbage going 6/23 and getting torched by Mario Chalmers. Its nice being able to play on a stacked team your whole career and never getting blamed if you crap the bed but yes he is very "underrated". Even though people were calling him best PG last season and saying he should get....

Rose is insanely good when he does get on the court. In a world in that it's a known certainty that Rose comes back for a full season, I gotta think it'd be closer than this projected separation? Atleast between him and Westbrook if not CP3. There's so many great point guards now though. You can really take your pick, these are mine... CP3 Westbrook Rose Curry Irving Parker Williams Wall Conley Lawson ....

Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook & Derrick Rose when he's healthy are the only Elite PG's in the league. The rest of them like Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving and Deron Williams are star PG's, for them to reach Elite level IMO they have do more than just put up great numbers, they have to will their team to wins on a nightly basis and I see CP, RW & Rose do that every single night even though Westbrook takes far too....

I'm not sure if we can make an argument that guys like Curry, Parker. Irving and Williams don't "will their teams to victory" on a nightly basis. I think all these guys do a good job of accomplishing that. ....

Rose will probably play more than 60 games, so i could easily see if going to the top 3

There were a ton of games I saw last season where Curry and Williams(especially Williams) seemed to be doing the bare minimum and just playing through their teammates. Notice how I didn't put Parker in this category, that's because he does....

Love that CP3 got that respect although it's a bit surprising. TP was the best PG last season and he's not even on the list. Pretty strange. I guess it's a projection but still how is he supposed to get that bad that he's considering an average starting PG in this league by next year. DRose is pretty low too. Lowry, Lawson and a rookie are ranked ahead of TP, Wall and Rubio. Conley ahead of Rose. ....

TP was NOT the best PG in the league last year. The dude plays for the best coach in the league and a system that's taken TP years to perfect...and he still doesn't average 8 assists a game. For a quick little guard, he didn't even average a steal a game. Our power forward averaged more steals than TP this past year. The Spurs system may run better with Parker at PG because of his experience in that system, but it's....

Notice how I didn't put Parker in this category, that's because he does do everything he can to win but I don't think he's an Elite PG for other reasons most notably his defense. I can't really judge Irving too much just yet because he's missed a ton of games. He's an incredible....

Cherry picking at its finest. Parker WAS playing at an MVP level all season long and did play well in the playoffs, sans the finals. But Lebron is the best player in the league for a reason, tough to play well with a 6'8 athletic marvel on you. Even Chris was shut down by him. Anybody that short is gonna have issues with that much length. Just because people like Barkley and Bayless love to jump on bandwagons doesn't mean a player has....

Period? As in not debatable at all? Last season I would say he was the 2nd best PG but you are saying there is no chance Rose or WB have a better season? Meh. Its silly not to have him on the list though. ....

But to project going forward just looking at skill sets and talent is a whole other matter. There are a lot of young guns that have A LOT of potential. Still, it can be agreed all around that Parker should have at least made the top 10 if nothing else.
shocking. Especially....

I can't stand the Tony Parker hype, and think he is overated due to the system he plays in and the players that surround him. With that said, until proven otherwise the guy belongs in the top 5. ....
