The point guard position known as the floor general of every team in the league. Players like Steph Curry (the highest-paid player in the league), Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving are always looked at to lead their team and command the offense in almost every game.

Four of the top 10 highest-paid players in the league are point guards. During the offseason, Curry signed the largest extension in NBA history with the Warriors in a four-year, $215 million deal.
