1. Kobe Bryant 6-6 Los Angeles Lakers

Analyis: Kobe has 4 rings, multiple scoring titles, 10+ all star game appearences, and an MVP trophy. Not to mention he won his first finals MVP award. He is on top and will be for a few more years.

2. Dwayne Wade 6-4 Miami Heat

Analysis: Averages 30.7 points. Led the Heat back to the playoffs. Besides LeBron James and Bryant he is the biggest showstopper in the NBA.

3. Brandon Roy 6-6 Portland Trail Blazers

Analysis: Lead a very young Blazers team to the playoffs. Averaged over 22 pts and almost 5 assists. Was very clutch throughout the regular season.

4. Ray Allen 6-5 Boston Celtics

5. Vince Carter 6-6 Orlando Magic

Analysis: Is considered to be old and falling off. But Carter still puts up over 20 a game despite being the main focus of the defense. Look to see the strongest season from Carter now that he will be playing the superb talent around him.

Top 10 Shooting Guards in the NBA

I agree with you on Kobe Bryant being number one because he is an all star on mostly all of his years and is a Nba Finals MVP and has four championship rings. I have to disagree with you on Brandon Roy being number 3. I believe that Ray allen belongs in that spot because he is a veteran and he also has a ring before any of the other players mentioned here besides Kobe Bryant,Dwyane Wade,and Richard hamilton. Correct me if I am wrong, if there is no order in this top list, Brandon Roy is a great player and his time will come. Until then, Ray Allen should be ahead of him, maybe even Richard Hamilton. Everyone else mentioned here, deserves it. Too bad for Tracy Mcgrady and Michael Redd because their injuries hinder them from becoming the best player they can be.
