A look at which guards rank ahead of their peers within the NBA this season.

1

Stephen Curry - Warriors

He's a two-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA champion, and he may be on the way to more of those before his career is over. Steph Curry is at the top of the league, right now, thanks to stellar shooting and stats. Per ESPN, Curry had a staggering .675 pure shooting percentage last season. That certainly has him among the best guards of all-time.

2

James Harden - Rockets

The reigning NBA MVP is looking to build upon last season's success. His team nearly knocked off the defending champs in the Western Conference Finals. With CP3 back, and Melo joining the party, it should get quite interesting in Houston.

3

Russell Westbrook - Thunder

Yet another of the recent NBA MVPs on the list of top guards. Westbrook got good news this offseason, when teammate Paul George decided he was going to re-up with the team. Now the question becomes whether this duo has what it takes to make some noise in the tough Western Conference.
