List RulesVote up the top NBA point guards based on their playing between 2000 and 2009.

This list ranks the best point guards in the NBA during the 2000s. The top 00s NBA point guards include players that are considered to be the best to ever play the position. Jason Kidd and Steve Nash come to mind as some of the best basketball minds to ever play. The greatest NBA point guards of the 2000s were true showmen, like Chris Paul and Tony Parker. Not showmen in a flashy sense... but their speed of play and their knack for getting their entire teams involved (which is what makes for an exciting NBA game). Some of the top NBA 00s point guards won individual awards, including league MVP honors. Others have gone from being one of the best 00s point guards to being an NBA head coach (Jason Kidd). Vote for you favorites now!
