Rondo no longer a top 5 pg? IMO he isn't.....

I've defended Rondo big time because of his defense, passing skills, ect. At this point, after making top 5 by each position. He is #6 on my list due to his poor offense. It has got to improve. Here is my list of top 5 pgs right now:

1.CP3-best point guard in the game for the last couple of years. Defense is solid, passing is great, and offense is also a good asset. He is the complete package.
2.Derrick Rose-He is probably the best scoring point guard in the game today. Defense really doesn't help him all that much. That is something he needs to improve on along with getting his teammates involved offensively. That is one of the main reasons why he isn't the best today.
3.Westbrook-Some folks may think he is too high on my list, but I could argue that he is just as good as Rose. Not only offensively, but passing as well. During the regular season the guy avg over 8 assists per game along with a nice scoring total. Any of these top 3 guards I'd love to see in Orlando next season. The toughest part for Westbrook is his contract salary is only 4 million. I doubt Thunder would part ways. Rose is reigning MVP and the star of the Bulls. No way Bulls trade him for anybody other than Howard on the Magic. CP3 is on a team ran by the NBA.
4.D-Will-Can score 20 and get his teammates involved. The guy isn't that great defensively, but is a great point guard. Hopefully for Jersey he will stick around. Write it down now!! Kevin Love will be a member of the New Jersey Nets after next season.
5.Steve Nash-This may surprise some or it may not. Nash has been one of the best point guards for a fairly long time in the NBA. Two NBA MVPs to prove it. He still has it. Offense is still solid and is one of the best passers in the game.

Agree or disagree? Where does Rondo rank on your point guard list?

Kind of hard to disagree with your list, although I'd prob flip-flop willz and westbrook. Nash is still to good to be replaced by rondo even though rondo is also and exceptional passer like nash. rondo has no shot whatsoever so I'd put rondo in top 10
