Who wins Year 2 of these Point Guards?
Last year four great point guards were drafted in Tyreke Evans, Brandon Jennings, Darren Collison, and Stephen Curry.
Tyreke edged them out for rookie of the year.
Who will have the best 2010 - 2011 season?
I forgot to post my vote. I vote Jennings.
I say Curry. If he continues his domination from the end of the season last year, the others are screwed.
ur missing a few other key point gaurds Johnny Flynn, Jrue Holiday and Rodrigue Beaubois -i would go with him, but i'm a kings fans so i'll pick tyreke with a new and improved jumper even though roddy's gunna see a big increase in minutes and numbers
Beaubois will have surgery on foot which will keep him out for 2-3 months, tyreke evans is the man , he's going to dominate the point guard position in the future if he doesn't slip to the 2 guard spot.
I think he's a little overrated. I dont see him competing in this group becuase all four of these point guards will start. I considered Johnny Flynn though.
i think those are the top 4, but jrue holiday is not gonna be far behind them. As for next year, ill stick with tyreke.
Curry will get minutes from the jump and should be a 20 point scorer and still get 7 assists and 2 steals. I think he can win the battle because Evan will have to get used to playing with a stacked front court.
A lot of good PG's came in that class. Holliday would probably be fifth followed by Lawson,Flynn, and Beabois.
Jennings- They added great depth, average 19-9-2-40% from 3
Evans- Cousins will draw attention away from him he'll average 23-6-7
Curry- Depends on if Ellis is gone he could take away touches plus they added Lee i say 18-6-2
Collison- new team and he's full time now i say 15-6-2
Holiday- depends on who has the ball more Holiday/Iggy/Turner i say 11-5-2.5
Curry and Jennings posted about the same stats, and Curry played in an inflated system.
my predicted stats:
tyreke's assist's will go up with the arrival of cousins and the attention he will command down low and his assists went up when landry arrived mid way through last season (his assists increased to 6.6 per game in the last three months of the season)
i want the Kings to move Evans to shooting guard..he's too ball dominant..and doesnt play well when the ball isnt in his hands..he's got to work on playing without the ball..if he does that ..i think he can become an all nba performer...
Its going to be interesting to see if Collison can continue to play the way he played filling in for CP3..
The Pacers got a steal...
Roddy Buckets have no play making skills..he's not a point guard...But i love his instant offense...he might take Jason Terry's spot as 6th man..
Brandon Jennings will take his game to the next level next year. I expect 17 or 18 ppg and 7 or 8 apg on much inproved efficiency
no way Curry averages less than 20 points
Sorry, but Tyreke scored 20ppg without a jumper. Give him one and he could be very special.
Curry on the other hand proved that his defense is better on a better defensive team which is huge imo.
My vote goes to Evans, I think Kings team have a brighter future than the GSW.
Evans is a SG more.
I'll go with Collison.
Evans will be the best of year 2 however with Stephen Curry's will be the most improved of the bunch and I belive in future years he will be named the best of that group.
I see Jennings asts improving having Salmons all year plus Maggette and his fg% too.
Not sure they'll be a lot of shot attempts though with Bogut, Salmons, Maggette all capable of scoring around 18-20ppg.
Next year the winner won't be best stats pg, now it will be the one who can lead his team to the playoff : Brandon Jennings IMO or maybe Jrue Holiday.
i think the winner of year 2 will be either collison with his new team or stephen curry
jennings is going to be the only one who leads his team to the playoffs. for the second year in a row.
The other guys may do well with stats but they just arent as mature and arent capable of leading a playoff team from the point.
aha, so you think if you exchance Jennings for Evans or Curry the Bucks would miss the playoffs??
Jennings has talent, but he is not as consistent as those other two, he simply has the way better team and people give him all the credit. Yes the 55 point game was huge and he did well, but Evans and Curry would have taken the Bucks to the playoffs, too.
what was so great about the bucks team last year? i give you that they had bogut. they were in playoff position before they even traded for salmons. for the first half of the year this was their line up
jerry stackhouse/ luke ridnour
is that a powerhouse team. Jennings deserves credit for getting that team to the playoffs. he lead his team to the 6th seed while tyreke and curry both failed to win 30 games. they had good players on their teams also but they couldnt utilize them the way jennings did.
tyreke had to have the best player on his team trdaed away so that he could look better. he played lousy while kmart was on the floor.
neither of those guys team will make the playoffs again. while jennings will again show maturity and lead a team of veterans to a solid seed in the east.
Of the guys you listed I think Tyreke will have the best year, and although his team will be improved the Kings will still be a far cry from playoff contention. I think Jennings will have a better year last year, but he'll be playing in the playoffs again. If your a fan of individual accolades in favor playoff relevance, Tyreke is your choice, but I think Jennings will have the best year, I think he'll be at around 18 and 7 for a playoff team
First... The Bucks were only 24-28 before the Salmons trade... I wouldn't necessarily call that great playoff positioning. Salmons averaged 20 points and they finished the season 22-8 with him. There's no question that Salmons catapulted them into playoff contenders.
Jennings deserves credit, but let's not give him too much of the credit. Other than Bogut, there were no special players on that team, but Skiles had them playing. That team was well coached, played hard, ***rebounded*** the ball and defended.
You have to give Ridnour, who had one of the best seasons in his career, credit... It can be argued that he had as much of an impact as Jennings. He was DEFINITELY far more efficient. You have to give credit to İlyasova, who scored well and was surprisingly good on the boards. You have to give Delfino credit as well... He had a career year.
The Bucks were a MUCH better team than both the Kings and Warriors. You're a Jennings fan, which is great, but let's not take it overboard.
I think he will average over 20 ppg. His ppg for each month of his rookie year rose, and he averaged over 24 ppg over the final 10 games, and
I expect him to pick off where he left off and average at least 20 ppg.
i think its going to be collison for the fact hes gnna start and get good mintues, and be involved within the offense a whole lot, we all saw what kind of impact he had when paul was hurt
Out of all these players, which ones will be able to make the adjustments the best? Defenses will be geared more towards them in the 2nd year. Adaptability is the key. Anyways, Tyreke is the obvious choice. He will be the best player out of the group.
Tyreke is a man among boys who can finesse anybody out of the shoes on the way to the cup. With more confidence in shooting a retooled jumper I expect 25 a game from Reke. He'll be a first time all-star this year. I see 25points-5rebs-6assists as the Bonifide STUD on the Kings. He is the franchise of coures.
Jennings for year 2. More efficiency, better numbers, playoffs. Most improved of the 2009 pg crop.
curry steadily rose with his numbers per month, but hes going to split fga's with monta and lee. not to mention williams.
collison will keep his steady pg play from when paul went down into his 2nd year. possibly helping sneak into playoffs.
evans was just too good rookie year to expect him to improve leaps and bounds like others in this group.sophomore slump.
holiday i expect to be vastly improved, but with turner and dala on the team, just don't see the touches available.
