They come in varying packages, from the muscular and athletic Derrick Rose to the slight Steve Nash. They offer differing styles, from the composed efficiency of Chris Paul to the frantic unpredictability of Rajon Rondo. Some are looking to score first and set up later, such as Russell Westbrook and Deron Williams, while others are content with playing setup men, such as Jason Kidd and Ricky Rubio.
Some are the products of disparate basketball laboratories, such as the John Calipari dribble-drive factory (Rose, John Wall or Tyreke Evans). Others have recently been plucked high in the NBA lottery (Kyrie Irving) or from the waiver wire (Jeremy Lin). But no matter the physique, technique or place of origin, there is little denying that the NBA has moved into an era in which the point guard is the most talent-laden position.
