brandon jennings versus jamont gordon
anyone care to explain how this works please jennings is expected too go in top 10 to 15 hes maybe 2 years younger then gordon and i realize most of you have no idea who he is. hes a player that played very well last year in europe who came out a year early last year and went undrafted. he put up far better numbers this year then jennings did. my question is this why would a team pick jennings over applying the same amount of money to maybe sign gordon as a free agent and have that pick to use on another player? i believe there the same size same position practically same age only gordon played alot better in europe thoughts please hes 2 years older and 3 inches taller
Not the same athlete. He also went to college before playing overseas. That could explain the higher stats.

those are top 25 numbers across the board in euroleague
I dont understand that big mess.
He looks like a good player, Anyone that went to Oak Hill is serious. His problem may be that he is really an undersized 2 instead of a point.
Read his weaknesses from nbadraft.net and you'll realize why he isnt held in high regard.
to toney douglas to me since douglas is predicted to go high 2nd would anyone risk a guarenteed contract like theyd have too now to bring him over? anthony parker if you remember was in the same situation
with good euro experience and numbers - i feel very confident hed be a first round pick this year
He would be a good signing for a young team with holes. If the Knicks dont makes some moves at guard in the draft he'd be someone we should be interested in. Nice find.
I was wondering what happened to Jamont Gordon..he was good in college. He could do everything and he has all the tools. He should go to the NBA soon and try again. But he isnt as good as Jennings, I dont care about his stats. If yall had seen him play once in your life this wouldnt even be a discussion.
I have heard that Jenning is more explosive and from what I have seen he does look very explosive a few notches below Rose. I alway though Jamont Gordan was pretty good remember seeing him play a while back but I guess for whatever reason he did not stick with an NBA team. That does mean much though sometimes it is a numbers game.
I think Jennings is on the same level as Rose, maybe more explosive. He also is a better passer and handler than Rose right now.
I can't say more explosive but i will give you better passer. That ball handling thing may be too close to determine but i will say this with a year or work overseas he ball handling should be better .
jennings has more potenial plus played on a better team..gordans stats were better on a sorry team where he also played about double the min of jennings though jennings avg more ast and jamont averaged 4 more points
Golden State won't let him go lower. Donny Nelson loves these type of players. Monta Ellis is similar and could be a great mentor.
Idk. They have a new GM. Nellie never plays rookies anyways. They are the hardest team to predict.
