No other point guard is in on this. Rubio or Jennings.
This is real easy for me Jennings. He is a better athelete and trust me he shoots it better than that kid. He will get in the lane with his speed and he is an above average playmaker. A pass first point guard with better scoring ability than Rubio. He will pressure tha ball handler better too. Rubio gives effort on D, but we will see how he fights through picks in the NBA and keep Chris Paul, and D Rose in front of him.
Who you got and why?
I see Rubio as a very good PG in the NBA, I see B.J. as a super-star or Sebastian Telfair... I understand people being 'down' on Rubio but apparently NBA scouts who've actually played and coached the game see something great, not that scouts haven't made huge mistakes before... I'd take Rubio if I was in the top 8, B.J. might drop to PHX at #14
The only thing Sebastian Telfair and Brandon Jennings has in common, is they were first looked at and hyped up since high school. Telfair never went that far. The game is exciting with tall people running the show and getting people out of there seats. There will always be a place for Chris Paul, someone who is short but can do everything. I think if basketball becomes more exciting, than we will stop looking to the earlier stages of high school for someone interesting. I have no question Jennings will do great. I think he should be looked at as top 5, mostly cause of hype; but he does have skills. Look at LeBron, he was all hype but I haven't seen him let anybody down.
Telfair never dunks or showed the playmaking skills that Jennings had. Telfair scored a lot that was what he did. Jennings is a flat out point guard. They have different games except for flashy handle. I seen Jennings form on his shot and it looks a lot better than Telfairs on his step back jumper.
he is the better all around pg..........he is way way way more athletic than he is a true pg and i could easily see him winning a dunk contest or two..........now i have compared him to AI in the past but i was thinking if he learns to drive....i think he could be kinda like tony parker but with more ups and swag.......plus another thing that i have noticed about BJ is really competitive and will put a team on his back with his intisty and desire to be a win............KINGS NEED TO TAKE THIS CAT
I would take Jennings right now. Is game is more adapt for the NBA. He has the quickness/speed, athletic ability to get into the paint and make decisions, and the attitude to be a star. He has a cocky attitude which is a gift and a curse but you need that to be come a start nowadays. I also think that him going to Europe to play was a wise decision and will make him mentally tough for the NBA. He has the physical tools but had he played NCAA the mental part would be missing.
Rubio may have more potential based on the fact he has been playing pro ball longer but he still has to translate his game over to the NBA. The way guards are coming in and dominating now he will have to be elite every night to compete. Think about Rubio with his less than optimal athletic ability will face the likes of Rose, Paul, Westbrook, Parker etc. I honestly don't think he can stay in front of the elite point guards consistently. He does have size but quickness beats size all day.
