Top 5 Current 6’4″ NBA Players

Here are my picks of the five best 6’4″ players in the NBA right now (in alphabetical order by last name). Scroll down for description of each player:

  • Bradley Beal
  • Anthony Edwards
  • Jrue Holiday
  • Jamal Murray
  • Russell Westbrook

Don’t agree? Let me know in the comments at the bottom of the post.

Bradley Beal, Phoenix Suns

Bradley Beal is one of the best scoring guards in recent NBA history.

His ability to handle the ball, create his own shot, and score from inside or out, made him one of the top players in the league (before his recent injury problems).

Beal is currently in his 12th NBA season (2012-present), and second team (Washington Wizards, Phoenix Suns).

He has averaged over 20 points per game (ppg) in seven straight seasons, including two seasons of over 30ppg.

Some of Beal’s other NBA achievements include: 3x All-Star, 1x All-NBA Third Team, All-Rookie First Team.

The main knocks against Beal has been his injury issues (has not played more than 60 games in each of previous 4 seasons); and his lack of team/playoff success.

Beal is currently part of the “big 3” for Phoenix, which includes superstars Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. If they can all stay healthy, then they will have a great chance to make a deep run in the playoffs.

šŸ‘¶ Interesting: As a teen, Beal used to babysit current NBA superstar Jayson Tatum when they were both living in St. Louis.

Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves

Anthony Edwards, a.k.a “Ant“, is one of the best young players in the NBA, and is often touted as the league’s “next superstar”.

The exciting guard/forward can score from anywhere on the court, and has explosive athleticism unmatched by most players in the NBA.

Edwards is in his 4th NBA season (2020-present), and has improved every year of his career. Over the past three seasons, his scoring has gone from 19ppg –> 21ppg –> 24 ppg. He is currently averaging around 26ppg, 5rpg, and 5apg.

Some of Edward’s NBA achievements include: 2x All-Star, All-Rookie First Team.

Edwards is still only 22 years old, and seems destined for superstardom. We should be seeing much more of Ant over the next decade or so.

šŸŽ¬ Edwards starred as the antagonist is the great 2022 basketball movie: Hustle

Jrue Holiday, Boston Celtics

Jrue Holiday is possibly the best defensive guard in the league, and one of the most underrated players of the past decade.

Many elite NBA players mention Holiday as the toughest guard defender to go against. (e.g. Paul George, Steph Curry, Damian Lillard).

Despite being mainly known for defense, Jrue is also a skilled offensive player. He has excellent handles, is a great passer, reliable outside shooter, and can finish at the rim with either hand.

Jrue is currently in his 15th NBA season, and 4th team (Philadelphia, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Boston). He has averaged double digit scoring in 14 straight seasons, and over 1 steal per game in every year of his career.

Some of his other NBA achievements include: NBA champ (2021), 2x All-Star, 5x All-Defensive Team (3x First, 2x Second), Sportsmanship Award (2021), 3x Teammate of the Year.

Jrue also won an Olympic gold medal with Team USA at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Jrue is currently on an elite Boston Celtics team (featuring Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Porzingis), and will be looking to compete for his second NBA championship over the next couple seasons.

Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets

Jamal Murray is an elite offensive player, and one of the best players never to make an All-Star team (yet). He is best known for his outside shooting ability, and creative finishes around the rim.

The 26 year old Canadian is in his 7th NBA season, all with the Denver Nuggets.

Murray has averaged double digit scoring in all but his rookie season. He has averaged over 20 ppg over the previous two seasons.

Some of his NBA achievements include: NBA champion (2023), NBA All-Rookie Second Team (2017).

Murray is entering his prime, and should continue to be one of the league’s best guards for the foreseeable future. He is also the second most important player on the champion Denver Nuggets (behind Nikola Jokic), and will be looking to add more rings over the next few seasons.

Russell Westbrook, LA Clippers

Russell Westbrook is a former MVP, and one of the best NBA players ever. He is easily the most decorated 6’4″ NBA player currently in the league.

He is also one of the most athletic guards of all-time, and known for his ferocious, high speed attacking style. Despite his intense style of play, Westbrook has also been super durable (only played less than 60 games twice in past 15 seasons).

Westbrook is best known for averaging a “triple-double” (i.e. double digit points, rebounds, and assists) for an entire season. Hall-of-Famer Oscar Robertson is the only other player in NBA history to achieve this feat (once). Westbrook has done it four times (2016-2019, 2020-2021)!

Westbrook is currently in his 16th NBA season, and 5th team (OKC Thunder, Houston Rockets, Washington Wizards, LA Lakers, LA Clippers).

Some of his other NBA accomplishments include: MVP (2017), 9x All-NBA Team (2x First, 5x Second, 2x Third), 9x All-Star, 2x All-Star Game MVP, 2x Scoring Champ, 3x Assists leader, All-Rookie First Team, and member of the 75th Anniversary Team.

Westbrook also won an Olympic gold medal with Team USA at the 2012 London Olympics.

Russ is currently 35 years old, and nearing the tail end of his career. The only thing missing from his list of accomplishments is an NBA championship. He will look to win one over the next couple seasons with the super stacked LA Clippers team (featuring other all-time greats Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and James Harden)
