Yeah, that's the beauty of sports. All 5 of those guys have a claim to best PG in the league, depending on the criteria you're using. Nash is the best playmaker, the best shooter, and has had the best career. In 07 and 08 CP3 had two seasons that, statistically, are better than any PG's season in a long, long time. Williams has arguably the most consistent, complete game right now. Rondo can do things no other PG can do on both ends, and is the best defender of the bunch, but he has some weaknesses compared to the other top 5. And Rose is as athletically gifted as any PG has ever been, and might have the highest ceiling out of all of them.
And then you have guys like Lamar Odom, who is as gifted as any player I've ever seen, but only shows up once in a blue moon (last night). Like the saying goes, that's why they play the games.
