We are now in the thick of the NBA off-season, which means its time to start ranking things. This first week will feature a ranking of the top ten point guards in the NBA, with rank primarily determined by a standardized score.

A player’s score is essentially a “Blend” of the five major player evaluation metrics, which includes Win Shares, ASPM, PER, RPM, and Wins Produced. Furthermore, each metric is weighted according to its ability to predict future wins, rewarding players who weren’t just great last year, but who project to be great next year.

Though the Blend Score was the primary tool used to rank players, I also took into account durability, age, and role, when deciding between two relatively close players. To qualify for this list, a player had to have logged at least 20 minutes per game last season. All stats are per-48 minutes.
