2010 Point Guard Prospects


by: David Kay

The 2009 NBA Draft was all about the point guards.  11 were drafted in the first round and that doesn’t count Tyreke Evans who will likely run the point in Sacramento.  However, the balance of power will sway in the 2010 Draft as the point guard class will likely be very weak.  In-coming Kentucky freshman John Wall will be the cream of the crop and should be number one overall pick.
