NBAwithBEE 2012-2013 SG RANKINGS

Shooting Guard is another tough position for me to rank, unsure about rookies and some slated as SG’s could move to SF’s and vice versa so I’m going to update rankings as we go but listed below are those whose primary position is SG whether their starting or a role player. 





Quite a few rookies who’ll be asked to make an early season impact due to injuries to other players, and some rookies will just have the opportunity to make an impact because they earned it.  Bradley Beal, Terrance Ross, Dion Waiters and John Jenkins come to mind for rookies.  OJ Mayo is finally starting and will get the minutes he deserves, so where does he rank now? Brandon Roy has made a comeback (as my favorite player I hope he makes it thru at least 70 games) and then you have a rising star in Paul George, where does he rank? A lot of things to look forward to this upcoming NBA Season, Ray Allen in Miami is one I’m anxious to see.

Here is my SG Rankings for the 2012 Season as we are early on in training camps and pre-season.

1 DWAYNE WADE MIA will miss gms, but no SG comes close to his stat sheet
2 KOBE BRYANT LAL even with new talent around, will still get his 
3 MONTA ELLIS MIL Monta & Jennings will make on elusive backcourt
4 TYREKE EVANS SAC needs to development a 3pt shot, 20/5/5 at least too
5 ANDRE IGUODALA DEN poor mans Wade, fills the stat sheet
6 PAUL GEORGE IND I believe this is his time, his year (look out) 
7 JOE JOHNSON BKLN doesn’t have to be the man in Brooklyn, has elite PG
8 JAMES HARDEN OKC forget the finals, still avg 16/3/5 as a 6th man, will repeat
9 KLAY THOMPSON GSW may have him higher than most, he’s no slouch
10 OJ MAYO DAL starter minutes = breakout year for OJ
11 RODNEY STUCKEY DET arrived in camp healthy, ready to roll, DET needs pts
12 MARCUS THORNTON SAC isnt starting but will be asked to score, a lot. 
13 JASON TERRY BOS BOS never had a 6th man like Terry, more of the same
14 LOU WILLIAMS ATL could start or get starter minutes, scorer 
15 KEVIN MARTIN HOU has to stay healthy, one of the better SG’s to get to line
16 MANU GINOBILI SAS may see decrease mins due to youth & playoff purposes
17 ERIC GORDON NOH knee will be an issue, but if healthy, watch his numbers
18 JARED DUDLEY PHX battling Shannon Brown for SG, JD will win out
19 JR SMITH NYK keeps his head in gm can do a lot of things
20 ARRON AFFLALO ORL better defender & SG than Reddick, leadership too
21 TONY ALLEN MEM you don’t draft him for pts, u draft him for boards/stls
22 JASON RICHARDSON PHI new team and will beat out Nick  Young for starting SG 
23 WESLEY MATTHEWS POR gives you a scoring outburst every handful of games
24 JAMAL CRAWFORD LAC will fill void until Billups returns, solid backcourt in LAC
25 JORDAN CRAWFORD WAS needs to take next step this season w/Wall out
26 LANDRY FIELDS TOR has Ross breathing down his neck, needs to step up
27 NICK YOUNG PHI pure scorer, nothing more for PHI
28 RAY ALLEN MIA you know how many wide open 3’s he’s going to get? 
29 DION WAITERS CLE could be asked to do a lot as a rookie
30 DANNY GREEN SAS nice UTIL player for your squad
31 COURTNEY LEE BOS if he starts he should thrive
32 SHANNON BROWN PHX came on late last season, should be solid 6th man
33 BEN GORDON CHA new team with no scorers, will need instant offense
34 JJ REDDICK ORL 3 point specialist but improved last year w/PT
35 RIP HAMILTON CHI no Rose until 2013, must stay healthy to contribute
36 BRANDON ROY MIN welcome back B-Roy, if injury behind him – solid value
37 BRADLEY BEAL WAS the best pure scorer in draft, should have green light
38 MARSHON BROOKS BKLN with Joe Johnson in town, won’t see much time on court
39 GARY NEAL SAS plays both guards positions, solid scorer
40 IMAN SHUMPERT NYK will battle for minutes once he’s back
41 GERALD HENDERSON CHA if Gordon struggles, Henderson’s your guy
42 JOHN JENKINS ATL best shooter in the draft, can get solid spot minutes
43 TERRENCE ROSS TOR like this rookie and opportunity in TOR
44 JEREMY LAMB HOU with Martin’s injury history, Lamb can take over soon
45 RANDY FOYE LAC should back-up Jamal until Billups gets back
46 WILL BARTON POR POR lacks SG, if he stays on team can develop nicely
