Next great PASSING PG? Enter........ Who?

In a time where some point guards are labeled as elite if they record a 40+ vert, will the NBA see another dominant pass first PG in the mold of J. Kidd or Gary Payton or Mark Jackson in the next 10 years? Dont get me wrong, Im not taking anything away from CP3, Steve Nash or Deron Williams, but Im talking about the style of play that calls for throwing sick passes, off the glass oops, real TEAM play. Could you see any YOUNG GUNS fitting that mold, whether high school, college, or currently in the league?

Tyler Lewis! No, I don't

Tyler Lewis! No, I don't really understand what you mean. Deron Williams fits the team player bill perfectly. Are you looking for sick passes or not? Nash does those and so will Wall, along with plenty of other guards.

Why is Nash

not considered a great passing point guard? He can make any athletic wing look like an all-star.

I shouldve been more clear.

I shouldve been more clear. Looking at it, I didnt make what I was looking for clear enough. What I really want to know is do you see any YOUNG guys fitting the bill of pass-first, along the lines of a Steve Nash or J. Kidd, etc. Sick passes and all. My bad

Like nowadays, cats in high

Like nowadays, cats in high school get alot of attention because they can cross over alittle bit and boast a high vert. Not taking anything away from them, but I get MORE excited when looking at a pg who makes his squad better, can reward their big men, will pass it before thinking about a shot. A dunking pg is cool, but its something poetic about a bounce pass throw the legs

Well, look at future Knick

Well, look at future Knick Ricky Rubio. He's a primetime passer

(I'm joking about the future knick part so people won't use it in the future...)

Probably wont be a star but

Probably wont be a star but dont sleep on Demetri McCamey. He is a very good passer (probably the best in NCAA) who knows how to manage a game. Plus he has a nice mid-range J and size for a PG.

I hope

I hope to see Jason Kidd 2.0... He is the rare type of first pass PG that makes guys like Richard Jefferson and Kenyon Martin into All-Star or borderline All-Star type of guys... Look at them now, they struggled to find their identity without J-Kidd...

Ahh makes me want to pay

Ahh makes me want to pay homage to the original, Mr. Bob Cousy. He is the one who turned the pass into the assist.

My thoughts

I would say, it takes a while to develop your passing skills at high speeds into something consistently beautyful. I´d say 2-3 years in NBA. So right now there are young players, who´s mindset allows them to develop to a great pass-first passing pg in the future. I´d mention Ricky Rubio, of course, who has it already. But I see potential as well in:
- Kyrie Irving
- Jimmer Fredette
- Demetry McCamey
- Greivis Vasquez

I know McCamey is projected more of a combo guard, but his assist-stats at college level is impressive - and Illini did´nt have spectacular force inside to feed. So 6.8 assists in college-ball is promising. Greivis Vasquez is forced to feed others in Lakers :) He has no choice. Jimmer Fredette can be a star at NBA level ONLY as a pass-first point guard similar to Steve Nash - basically they have the same weapons. And Kyrie Irving can be whatever he wants to be.

Ryan Harrow?

His passing and dribbling skills are off the chart.

Didn't anyone see the passes

Didn't anyone see the passes that Stephen Curry executed last season. The kid has something special, not to mention that Bob Knight said he is one of the best passers in the world.

Ricky Rubio.

Ricky Rubio. Then a guy everyone overlooks, Jose Calderon, if you talk about a pure point guard then you've got to mention him. I'd also say, Stephen Curry, Eric Maynor and Kyrie Irving.

From the videos I saw of

From the videos I saw of Tyler Lewis he reminds me of Ed Cota. I don't see a future NBA player, but he'll probably be a good college player. Then again, he still has several years to develop.

Rubio would get my vote right now.
