Who is the greatest point guard to ever play in the NBA? There is a wide range of answers, given the historic depth of the position. Magic? John Stockton? Oscar Robertson? Jerry West? There are arguments to be made for every one of these players and more. In short, the NBA has no shortage of great players at the position.
However, it is a hotly debated topic. And there are some choices that people would say were the "wrong" choice. Additionally, in that vein, Cam'Ron and Ma$e are catching some flak for their choice.
Fans Question Cam's Choice For Best PG
Cam'Ron and Ma$e, hosts of It Is What It Is, were in Phoenix this past weekend for Game 4 between the Suns and Nuggets. While there, they caught up with Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas. Filming a video together, Cam'Ron boldly announced, “We here with the best point guard ever. Ever, what the fuck is you talking about? Listen, man, ever n-gga. It Is What It Is.” Furthermore, Thomas would later post a photo with Ma$e with the caption "Let it be known #badboys". This referred to his time on the "Bad Boys" Pistons of the 1980s and Ma$e's links to Death Row Records. The hometown Suns won Game 4 129-124. The game was highlighted by Nikola Jokic crashing into Suns owner Mat Ishbia. The Nuggets star was later fined for this contact.
However, fans don't appear to share their opinion. "C’mon man… Even I know Magic Johnson was the best PG EVER and he was before my generation,” wrote one commenter. “Lying to that man on camera is crazy!” said another. Thomas, a career Piston between 1983 and 1994, was a two-time champion as well as the 1990 Finals MVP. Bleacher Report ranked him as #6 on their list of the 50 greatest point guards of all time. But the wide consensus is that the likes of Magic Johnson top the list. However, what do you think? Where does Isiah Thomas rank in terms of point guards? Let us know in the comments below.
