Each and every NBA season, the debates start up as to who the best players are at each position. With new rookies coming into the league each year, it provides speculation ahead of the season as to who will perform the best. Just recently, one website put out its rankings for NBA's point guards. Their listing, which featured 30 guards included the past two NBA MVPs, as well as two of the NBA Draft 2017 class members. So where did Los Angeles Lakers' rookie Lonzo Ball rank on the list?

The Top 10 PGs

The Hoops Hype website recently put out their projected point guard rankings ahead of the 2017 NBA season.

The Top 10 is basically a who's who of the league's best guards, as it should be. While Lonzo Ball didn't earn a ranking this high coming into his first season, it's something for him to aspire to.

At No. 10 was Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat, followed by Mike Conley of the Grizzlies, Kyle Lowry of the Raptors, and Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Of those players, Irving is looking to move up the list as he actively requested his own trade from the Cavs ahead of the upcoming season. Whether or not he's on a different team next season is another story.

At No. 6 on the list is Boston Celtics' star Isaiah Thomas who helped lead his team to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The top five begins with Portland Trail Blazers' star Damian Lillard who has been actively recruiting Carmelo Anthony along with his backcourt mate CJ McCollum. Lillard is known much more for his offensive abilities on the court, which is a lot like several of the other players above him. Coming in at No. 4 is a player who has been on the rise in Washington: John Wall, who averaged 23.1 points, 10.7 assists, and two steals per game as he led the Wizards to the playoffs.

The No. 3 spot goes to the Houston Rockets' James Harden who finished as runner-up to the NBA MVP, No. 2 Russell Westbrook. Ranking at the top of Hoops Hype list is none other than two-time MVP and NBA Champion Stephen Curry. The All-Star guard now has adjusted his role quite a bit as the team added Kevin Durant. Still, it's tough to argue against his scoring abilities from long range or driving to the paint, as well as Curry's ability to get steals on the other end.

Lonzo's ranking

Lonzo Ball was not among the Top 10 projected point guards, but he did manage to finish amongst the Top 20 heading into his first NBA season.

The former UCLA phenomenon was placed at the No. 19 spot, with his fellow rookie, Markelle Fultz of the Philadelphia 76ers just one spot above him.

As with most rookies, Lonzo Ball will have a lot to prove heading into the coming season as he tries to help revive the former "Showtime Lakers" under Magic Johnson. However, Lonzo's showing during the NBA Summer League Las Vegas gave plenty of reason for Lakers fans to be excited.

Lonzo Ball will be on the court battling with the best of the best in the league this coming season which should give a good early indication of where he's at, and how much work he'll need to do to reach the top 10.

Lakers fans do you feel Lonzo's ranking of No. 19 is right, or should he be higher up?
