THE NEW GUYS
Five point guards who entered the NBA since 2008:
DERRICK ROSE, CHICAGO
Already a league MVP, he'll instantly transform Bulls back into contenders when he returns fully healthy from ACL knee surgery.
RUSSELL WESTBROOK, OKLAHOMA CITY
He's criticized sometimes for shooting too much with Kevin Durant beside him, but is a freakishly athletic, gifted talent.
KYRIE IRVING, CLEVELAND
So young, but he's so good that he even probably could take Uncle Drew in a game of one-on-one.
RICKY RUBIO, TIMBERWOLVES
A throwback to the day when international icons were international icons and point guards passed the ball first and foremost.
Damian Lillard, PORTLAND
If you don't know the name well yet, just wait: You will.
