Who are the best shooting guards in the NBA (and do we consider Jaylen Brown one of them)?

Who are the best shooting guards in the NBA for the coming 2023-24 season? More importantly to the majority of you reading this — are any of them on the Boston Celtics’ roster?

It depends on if you count All-NBA forward Jaylen Brown as one, given the Georgia native does play the position in a somewhat positionally flexible Celtics system, but even if you do, he has the likes of Devin Booker, Donovan Mitchell, Anthony Edwards, Zach LaVine, Desmond Bane, and CJ McCollum to name only some of the players Brown is competing against at the shooting guard position.

The folks behind the “Hoops Reference” podcast see the Cal alum as a 2 guard for the purposes of just such a #RankingSeason exercise.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear where Brown landed amongst such wing luminaries.
