Yes, this list really is a "Best of the Century." Beware though as the list below won't really overwhelm you with fond memories of shooting guards of yesteryear. While the Cavs have had some standout players at each of the other four positions on the court this century they surely haven't had any at this position.

Big money signing Larry Hughes was expected to be a landmark addition via free agency but he wasn't even able to crack this list of crap.

Check out who did make it into the top three after the jump.

Ricky Davis, 2001-2004: The enigmatic Davis played 183 memorable games with the Cavaliers scoring over 15 points per game while adding around 4 rebounds and 4 assists per game. He had a fantastic season in 2002-2003 as he averaged 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists per game in 40 minutes a night. His "stardom" that season led the Cavaliers to end up winning the first pick in the 2003 NBA Draft and he would have just 22 more games with Cleveland left. His PER with the Cavs was 16.

Wesley Person, 1997-2002: I had to do a bit of reaching here to grab Person but in his 328 games in town he scored 12 points, grabbed 3.6 rebounds and dished out 2.0 assists per game. The biggest asset Person offered was his three-point shooting. He nailed over 42% of those shots for Cleveland. His PER with the team was 14.4 and he scored a career high 15.1 points per game at age 30 in his final season in Cleveland.

Delonte West, 2008-2010: In 150 games with Cleveland, West scored about 10 points per game while notching over 3 rebounds and assists per game. He was a smooth lefty who shot the ball well from the field and deep (38%). At 6'4 many people considered him undersized but while on the court he contributed to some successful Cavalier teams. His PER ended up at 14 in Cleveland.
