2005 — Chris Paul over Andrew Bogut
At the time of the draft and for many years into their career, Deron Williams or Chris Paul at point guard was a great and legitimate debate. CP3 has long since put that one to bed. The Point God is one of the best guard defenders in league history, leading the league in steals six of seven years at one point and making nine All Defense teams (and counting, maybe).
Chris Paul never won an MVP or had that one super memorable playoff run, but he’s the best point guard of his generation. He ranks third all time in assists per game and sixth in steals. He’s also #1 all time in career offensive rating, more or less guaranteeing a high powered NBA offense any time he stepped on a basketball court.
