5. Tony Parker has great stats, but is not on the same level that the other players on this list are at. Tony Parker however, makes up for this because he helps his team in ways that can not be put into the box score. He is unquestionably the leader of his offense and his unselfish play helps the Spurs thrive in the NBA. He is also not a standout individual leader but he has the focus and ability to shine as a team defender.

4. John Wall has been an extreme offensive threat. He is also starting to get better and better on the defensive end. John Wall is a very young and developing player who still has the potential to become an All-Star. John Wall is becoming a complete point guard and could someday make it to number 1 of this list.

3. Stephan Curry has been outstanding this season but his performances have declined a little bit recently. This is primarily because his team has had many injuries to big players on the roster. Stephan Curry was doing extremely well and is incredible offensively. He would have been an MVP candidate if his team had made it farther in the Western Conference.

2. Russel Westbrook came back from his injury not to long ago and had been in terrific form. He is averaging 21.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 7.1 assists. He has been shooting very efficiently and put up a triple double within the first seven games of his return. The only thing that he has lacked is his ability to lead the Thunder to victory.

1. After returning from his injury, Chris Paul has not missed a beat. He is averaging 15.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 10.5 assists per game. During Chris Paul’s injury, Blake Griffin has improved and developed into and even better player. This took a lot of pressure of of Chris Paul. With Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, the Clippers are a serious  title contender.
