Shooting Guard

1)   James Harden (24.2 PPG 44 FG% 30 3P% 85 FT%) – With Kobe Bryant still sidelined, there’s little doubt on who the best shooting guard in the league is. Harden is an elite scorer and has the Rockets playing great basketball.

2)   Arron Affalo (21.6 PPG 48 FG% 50 3P% 83 FT%) – Affalo has come into his own this season with him being the go-to guy in Orlando. Affalo is asked to do a lot but is also putting up great percentages. He has great numbers and if he keeps it up he can be on his way to his first All-Star game.

3)   Kevin Martin (22.8 PPG 42 FG% 46 3P% 92 FT%) – Martin has bounced around in his career but is finally shining in Minnesota. He has proven he is better than a sixth man role and is putting up awesome numbers with the Twolves, playing with Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love.

4)   Klay Thompson (21.1 PPG 51 3P%, 47 3P%, 81 FT%) – Part two of the Splash brothers is having one hell of a shooting season. Shooting over 50 percent is fantastic and is benefiting greatly in Mark Jackson’s system.

5)   Bradley Beal (20.6 PPG 40 FG%, 43 3P%, 81 FT%) – Beal is looking like the talent everyone thought he could be. He is still very young (20 years old), but has proven so far this season he has the ability to be a top tier scorer in this league.

Honorable Mentions:  J.J. Redick, Wesley Matthews, Lance Stephenson

    I would at least put tony parker as an honorable mention he may not put up the same numbers as every many of those mentioned above but he shoots over 50% and doesn’t play allot because the spurs have been blowing people out allot and are the only team with a double digit point differential. And this is coming from a rockets fan.
