2009 West Coast Rankings: Point Guards

The 2009 West Coast point guard list is led by players such as Abdul Gaddy, Elijah Johnson and Anthony Marshall...

Gaddy is the clear-cut choice for the top spot among the point guards.
A true point with a great feel, Gaddy makes everyone on his team
better. Johnson is an explosive athlete with a high upside. He's still
a little rough around the edges, but his potential is enormous. Thames
has great size for the position and he's a good athlete. He's not
a true one, but he can defend the position and has a chance to be a
very nice player down the road. Siva is another guy that is not a
true point guard, but he's an excellent shooter and good athlete.
Lawton is another scoring lead guard with tremendous quickness and
athleticism. He can get his shot whenever he wants and he is hard
to guard.
