In today's NBA, shooting guards are as important as ever - particularly with teams jacking up more accumulative three-pointers with each passing season. They're the game's swashbuckling superstars, tasked with scoring points (preferably lots of points) in a variety of ways, and the position has been filled by some of the greatest basketballers of the past few decades. Dwyane Wade? Shooting guard. Kobe Bryant? Shooting guard. Michael freakin' Jordan? Oh you'd better believe it. In the NBA 2K franchise, there's often a temptation to place too much reliance upon a team's shortest and tallest players. Point guards naturally carry the ball up the floor, and always seem to be over-utilised by pass-shy players, while anybody with a half-decent post game will be tempted to just give the ball to their centre on every single possession. However, any savvy player knows the importance of an effective SG. What good is a knifing point guard or dominant big man if there's no scorer to exploit the space they create? Good 2K players, just like the most effective NBA stars, are always looking for that extra pass - which, with the help of a great finisher, can be the difference between winning and losing the ballgame. So who are the best shooting guards in NBA 2K16? Is James Harden as dominant as expected? Where does the ageing Kobe Bryant lie? And how do younger stars such as Victor Oladipo stack up?
