Since KSR has been focused on ‘summer topics’ lately, this might be an interesting one to discuss. Andrew Adkins, a writer for isportsweb.com went into detail for the argument of who Kentucky’s best point guard in the past 10 years is. The bracket setting breaks down point guards who have spent time at Kentucky before moving on to greater things.
Here is the bracket set-up.
It all comes down to Wall vs. Rondo in the Championship.
Rondo was nearly the quintessential point guard at Kentucky. He could pass the ball effortlessly, speed past defenders with dexterity, rebound the basketball with regularity and guard forwards as well as opposing guards with tenacity, but the one facet of his game while at Kentucky that keeps him from being crowned champion of KPGAA May Madness is captivation.
Wall captivated his team, the fan base and the nation with his tantalizing play and unswerving confidence. Wall led a Kentucky program, not just a team, back to glory one year after an NIT Tournament appearance.
When all is said and done, Wall is selected as the best. It is hard to agree with the reasoning behind his argument, since Rondo too brought excitement to the Kentucky teams he played for. However, Wall was essential in the start of the Calipari era at Kentucky, which might be seen as a greater feat since Kentucky had been less than satisfying the years before. If you are counting it by NBA Championships, Rondo is the winner. He has been the star of his team and an important part of team success in the past. However, it could also be argued Wall is closely behind him after helping turn around the Washington Wizards. Wall also has more athleticism and attributes that would make him a bigger threat then Rondo.
What do you think? Who is the best?
