Rajon Rondo said in an interview, while in France enjoying his vacation at a absketball camp, that he feels he is the best point guard in the NBA:

Q: Last season, Doc Rivers said that you often took the floor during time outs. You have worked with the Big Three in Boston, but now we have the impression that you are the leader. Can we say that it is your team?

R.R.: Yes I think. My position of point guard promotes my leader status at the same time. Doc and I have been working together for 6 years now. I know what he wants, when he wants it. It is on me to pass the message on the court. Doc gives me great trust, I know what he wants without his saying it...

Q: When have you started to do that? Take his place in the time outs?

R.R.: For two years I would say. I have gained lots of confidence in myself over two years. I have gained in maturity, my game has evolved a lot and my teammates listen to me and it helps. 

Q: This leading role, is it in your personality? Is it what you wanted?

R.R.: I did not choose that I wanted to be a leader or not. I must be one for my team. Every day, I get up telling myself I want to be better. I worked hard to get to this point and I continue to work hard.

Q: What is it that you lack you to be the perfect leader?

R.R.: As I said earlier, I have matured a lot and my game has also. I think I am one of the best playmakers in the League. I think I'm the best point guard in the League. 

This isn't the first time that we hear Rondo say that he is the best point guard in the NBA, but it's always something that gets my attention. I think Rondo proved last year that he was the best floor general in the league. A point guard, by (my) traditional definition, is a team's leader, and the player that starts the offense to get his teammates involved. Rondo does that to perfection, and also is a good scorer and rebounder. To my standards of what a true point guard is, Rondo is definitely the best in the league. 

A real argument comes in when speaking on who is the best player, at the point guard position. In this case, Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook and Tony Parker are all arguably as good as it gets in the NBA.
