I know that there have been a few shooting guards to average over a block a game, but I wanted to know if there has been a point guard to average a block a game while playing 70 games minimum.

Not since blocks became a recorded stat in 1973-74.

Basketball Reference does not allow querying specifically for point guards as opposed to shooting guards, but very few guards of any kind meet your criteria of 1+ blocks over 70+ games. This is the entire list:

Player             Season   Team  G  Minutes Blocks
Michael Jordan     1987-88  CHI   82  40.4  1.6
Michael Jordan     1986-87  CHI   82  40.0  1.5
Dwyane Wade        2008-09  MIA   79  38.6  1.3
George Gervin      1977-78  SAS   82  34.8  1.3
George Gervin      1976-77  SAS   82  33.0  1.3

George Gervin      1979-80  SAS   78  37.6  1.0

Ten different players appear in the list:

  • Michael Jordan - always a shooting guard
  • Dwyane Wade - was listed as PG only during his rookie season (2003-04)
  • George Gervin, Reggie Lewis, David Thompson, Vince Carter, Jerry Stackhouse - all SG/small forward combos
  • Dennis Johnson - was listed as PG for about half of his career, but his first PG season was the year after his last 1+ block season
  • Danny Green - SG
  • Ron Harper - began as a SG and finished his career as a PG, but his first PG season was ten years after his 1+ block season

None were listed as point guard during their qualifying seasons.

In the 2016-17 season Andre Roberson is the only guard averaging 1.0 blocks per game, but he, like most players on this list, has never played PG.
