Ranking 70 Greatest Shooting Guards in NBA History
The 70 best shooting guards were ranked based on several evaluations, including championships won (particularly if they were key cog on team), individual accolades (MVPs, All-Star appearances, etc.), win shares, statistical production, longevity and overall reputation. For active players, metrics were used such as how they have performed compared to others at the current stage of their careers.
Also, it's worth noting that some players (such as John Havlicek) were viewed more as small forwards despite playing some shooting guard in their careers. Therefore, players who fit into that category were not ranked in this list.
