Hoops Hype says CP3 is not a top 5 pg anymore.
After leading the league in assists and that perfect 14/14 game and leading this team to a record 64 wins. WTH

I'm not saying he's a top 5 PG of all time but he should be in the convo.

He was also 3rd team All-NBA last year as well an All-Star.

I'd say he's still top 5. I'd put Ja ahead of him, for sure, and Curry but other than those 2 there isn't anyone that much better unless you view Luka as a PG, which is debatable.

But he's DEFINITELY top 5 all time, for sure.

It's only for this season and Paul is ranked number 6. I'm not that worried about it as it doesn't really mean anything.

Luka Doncic (Mavericks)
Stephen Curry (Warriors)
Ja Morant (Grizzlies)
Trae Young (Hawks)
Damian Lillard (Blazers)
Chris Paul (Suns)

Not saying he's not. Especially statistically, BUT there have been a LOT of GREAT PGs in NBA History. Many played before most posters memories.

Chris Paul, Walt Frazier, Steph Curry, Magic Johnson and Gary Payton in no specific order. That's my top 5 list with Isiah Thomas, John Stockton, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Allen Iverson rounding out the next five. Oscar Roberton and Bob Cousy top the next 5 along with 3 PGs that probably make the top 10 if injuries weren't an issue, Sidney Moncrief, Derrick Rose and KJ. If I'm selling any of them short it's Bob Cousy (not Oscar as many will suggest).

No logo? Jerry West. He was a great PG. Lenny Wilkens gets forgotten because of what he did as a coach. Maurice Cheeks was one of the most underrated I have seen.

I think of West more as a shooting guard. He played both guard spots back before they were calling one of them a "point guard". He'd make my top 20 all time guard list, just not top 15 PG list.

Lenny was solid, more than solid, and a better player than a coach IMO but there's only so many top spots available. Mo Cheeks doesn't come all that close to the top list IMO. I tried to favor the two way PG's but as always, we tend to overlook the Norm Van Lier kind of players that were much better on D than O.

I used to be a BIG Doctor J fan. So I watched as many Sixers games as I could in the past. It was very uncanny how a key steal, shot, or assist that Cheeks would make in crunch time to win games for them. Doug Collins is another PG not mentioned, but was a very underrated PG in his day. I don't have any disagreements with guys you mentioned. Just top 5 is very elite level.
