Basketball Spotlight Top 30 Point Guards Of All Time!

The Top 30 Point Guards to ever come through Basketball Spotlight Events are listed below. The list was comprised based on the dominance and impact of the player during that event or events. If we forget a prospect that is too glaring then they will be added. This was a fun experience and should be looked at as such. The players are listed by AAU Team, College and NBA team which drafted them or who they are currently affiliated with. 

Basketball Spotlight Top 30 Point Guards Of All Time 

1. Kyle Anderson Jr. (Long Island Lightning), (UCLA), (Memphis Grizzles)- It’s hard not to be #1 when you lead your team to two AAU National titles and a bunch of other championships including a Spotlight MDC crown. Anderson Jr. was the Magic Johnson type of his middle school era. It would be hard to find another player that has the winning percentage to match this kid. He took home POY honors.

2. Isaiah Briscoe (Team Scan), (Kentucky), (Orlando Magic)- No player in recent history had a celebrated 8th Grade season close to Briscoe’s. He literally changed the game with his dominance on the floor. He gave Team Scan heavy middle school recognition and garnered high major offers from top schools. He made reclassifying the new weapon from prospects.

3. Jaecee Martin (CBC), (Sacred Heart)- When you have the nickname “Mayweather” you had to be great and this guard was. He dominated his age group for a few years while helping his squad become one of the most talked about teams in the country.

4. Zion Harmon (Team Glory), (HS)- From 3rd Grade to 8th Grade Harmon was the best guard on his level. His mature mindset allowed him to play up with ease and lead several teams to championships. “The Lion” was also one of the winningest floor generals in Spotlight history.

5. Jahvon Quinerly (Sports U), (Alabama)- Quinerly hit when of the biggest shots in Spotlight history while also totally dominating the opposition during his 8th Grade year. Quinerly’s savviness and play making ability stood out.

6. AJ Hoggard (Team Final), (Michigan State)- Hoggard went end to end as one of the best point guards in the country. His last season with Team Final proved that his dominance was on another level. His journey from McBuckets to Blue Magic was a total joy to watch.

7. Jaden Bradley (GC Ballers), (HS)- 2 Time Future Phenom Camp MVP also stole the show down at the AC Showcase. Bradley followed Jaden Springer’s lead putting NC on the Spotlight map. This guard was something special to watch.

8. Tremont Waters (Connecticut Elite) (LSU), (Boston Celtics)- Many compared his play to CP3 when they saw him handle the pill. Waters had the ability to make defenders vanish while getting where he wanted on the floor. Tremont was special.

9. Marcus Lovett (Cali Styles), (St. Johns)- Lovett came to the Spotlight in a blur with that loaded Cali Styles. While competing against a few on this list he was quicker and more explosive during the Clash For The Cup. He was something to watch.

10. Marcus Floyd (Philly Aztecs), (Maine)- Floyd was a straight killer. He came in underrated and then took over the landscape. He dazzled crowds during the Spotlight events while also quarterbacking the Aztecs to the AAU Final Four.

11. Alani Moore (DC Assault), (Temple)- “Showtime” was a natural born winner and he proved it stepping on the floor with DC Assault. He got into the lane whenever he wanted, dished the rock and scored in traffic. He was a joy to watch.

12. Bryce Aiken (Team Scan), (Harvard)- “Capo” did his damage will leading KYDA and Team Scan to prominence. He knew how to run a team and takeover the game when needed. He was a coach’s dream at that age.

13. Anthony Cowan (Dc Assault), (Maryland)- “Mister” Cowan was a Spotlight legend. He played apart from Moore on the other DC Assault team before joining forces. Cowan was as tough as they come in terms of play making, competing and winning.

14. Atiba Taylor Jr. (Sports U), (Wagner)- Taylor was the floor general that led KSK before he moved to the Supreme Team. The southpaw was in charge of making sure Nazi Reid and Luther Muhammad ate. He was responsible for winning a few banners.
