Default Who is the best PG in the NBA right now?

Steve Nash is of course... but I wanted to take this stroll down memory lane...


Edit: Jason Kidd is my man, but I don't want to get into an argument about Nash vs Kidd since this thread was designed to make fun of Marbury

Quote:
Marbury's statement was the talk of Madison Square Garden prior to tipoff.

"Don't get me wrong, I love Jason Kidd, he is a great point guard," Marbury said. "(But) how am I comparing myself to him when I think I'm the best point guard to play basketball? That makes no sense. I can't compare myself to somebody when I already think I'm the best.
"I'm telling you what it is. I know I'm the best point guard in the NBA," Marbury said.


Quote:
Jefferson was more verbose in his response to Marbury's declaration.

"John Stockton never said he was the best point guard in the NBA. Michael Jordan, I don't recall too many times him saying he was the best player, Magic Johnson. You know, not too many guys come out and say they're the best," Jefferson said. "J-Kidd has been the No. 1 point guard in the NBA for as long as I've been here and never once has he said he's the best."

Quote:
Nonetheless, Marbury's overall tenure as New York's first option point guard has thus far been unremarkable, with the exception of the occasional headline-grabbing controversy. In an infamous rivalry-stoking moment during the 2004-2005 season prior to the Knicks' game against metropolitan rivals the New Jersey Nets, a reporter asked if Marbury felt he could compare with Jason Kidd, the Nets' superstar point guard, and notably the player for whom Marbury was previously traded. In reply, Marbury stated, "How am I comparing myself with him when I already think I'm the best point guard to play basketball. . .I'm telling you what it is. I'm the best point guard in the NBA". The comment backfired after the Knicks lost the game in question and went on to finish last in the Atlantic Division for that season.

Nash for sure, Marbury's lucky to be in the top10. JKidd can also give Nash a run for his money too.

Chris Paul could take the reign this year, he deserves serious consideration.

I don't think Marbury was talking about PG as in passing, but as in the best player at the position.

true, but Paul is only a sophomore.. he has his whole career ahead of him. and it is not like Kidd is going to become useless next season.

much like Rookie Kidd and Stockton.


Stockton was midway thru his career and Kidd was an aspiring youngster.
