just my 2 cents

Derrick Rose has more pg skills, he is developed beyond his years. He is a tad more unselfish and is way more of a winner. His jump shot is better and has way better shooting mechanics. Wall is more committed to defense and is even quicker and more athletic then Rose. Wall is also a bit taller but Rose is more muscular and draws contact better. Both are fantastic finishers.

Derrick Rose 2.0? Slow down,

Derrick Rose 2.0?

Slow down, Let him play a college game. Plus John Wall wont be "Derrick Rose" good. I saw him play 15 games. He will have trouble defending bigger PG's and he is 6-1. He got killed by Brandon Jennings on 2 separate occasions...

Rose's strength is the only true difference. Everything else is either even or its such a slight advantage for them that its not worth mentioning.

not you yup-yup I didn't

not you yup-yup

I didn't say Wall will be terrible. I say Wall will have a issue guarding bigger PG's. I saw the man play 15 games. He plays well on O but a little weak on D. I think he will be a great PG in the NBA but not a Superstar...

You people need to grow up as well. Some of you guys gave me a negative because I think a player needs to play in a college game First.....

We all need to slow

We all need to slow down...You guys are pointing out qualities that Rose didnt have coming out of HS either, Rose has 1 season experience under Calipari already, and 1 NBA season

Obviously John Wall isnt finished developing(neither is rose), he'll get bigger, he'll be able to shoot better, he'll develop his PG skills along the way also..

If you compared Roses' skills coming out of HS to Walls right now, you'd be watching twins, imo

After Walls lone college season, you'll all see as he develops how much alike they really are..

nAH

I can pretty much guarantee John Wall will be an elite PG in the NBA. Derrick Rose was 6'1" at the NBA combine w/o shoes, and so is John Wall. But they are both 6'3 with shoes on and last I checked you play basketball with shoes.

Naw, you said he will get

Naw, you said he will get eaten up by bigger guards. He is a big guard, and your arguement was he was 6'1, and so I thought that because he's 6'1" you thought he would struggle guarding big players. When his playing size is 6'3

You can't just predict high

You can't just predict high school talent as future stars.......marcus liberty, Johathan bender, deshawn stevenson, Gerald green, kwame brown, alll expected to be greats, and compared to greats, have done nothing big in the nba......And your saying a guy that hasn't played a nccaa game a great player......im not saying he bad....he pretty good from what i've seen but do we know that will show in the pros

No, I said he WAS getting

No, I said he WAS getting eaten up by PG's now. I saw a couple of games against good talent where against some players and some PG's where he was getting bullied...I think he will struggle a bit.

Even Derrick Rose has some weaknesses in his game.

Also, there is a big

Also, there is a big difference between 08 Memphis and 09 Kentucky

Wall will not be the main guy on UK. Patrick Patterson will. With 3 legit big men inside, Coach Cal will ask Wall to be more off a slasher/distributor then just a flat out do everything player like Rose was at Memphis

My prediction for Wall:

My prediction for Wall: 11-15 ppg 3-5 rpg 4-6 apg. That is what I expect him to do on that loaded Kentucky team.

Yea

They had a little poor mans version, with Dorsey,Dozier, and Taggart..but none of them were 1st round talents. Just tough guys who converted easy shots at the rim offensively.

All in all, we need to wait

All in all, we need to wait on these HS kids before calling them superstars at the NBA. Guys like Robert Swift, Edbui Ebi, Shannon Brown etc were top rated Prospects and were being talked about the same way you guys talk about Wall.

Wall is still young. He can hit the weight room. He is very long for a PG too. I'd trade my whole team just for a chance to get him.

To me, sometimes their are

To me, sometimes their are prospects you just know will succeed. I think Wall is one of them. I thought Rose, LeBron, Dwight and OJ were too. I haven't been wrong on a hs prospect yet haha! Wall is next in line for me.

I never talked about Robert

I never talked about Robert Swift that way, as a matter of fact I always wondered why he was highly rated. He is very weak and goofy and has always been since I saw him in the Mickey D's game. I did like Shannon Brown in HS, but he wasnt hyped like John Wall and I never thought he would be an elite player in the NBA. I did think he was going to start with some team though, and he may with LA if Phil Jackson realizes he is better than Fisher and Farmar. And Ebi was raw, and too weak to play NBA. None of those players were nearly as hyped as Wall though.

Knicksboy

I rarely think this highly of a prospect, I said he would succeed, not win MVP. I never thought any of those guys were good either. Like I said I'm perfect so far so until I am not, i will take my own word for it that he is going to be good.

I'm not saying he wont succeed. I'm just saying, slow down before you predict too much for John Wall because there have been players who dont live up to it.

LeBron and Mayo weren't as hyped as Wall??? You're kidding right? Unless you are talking about Swift and the other busts.

Knicksboy it gets confusing when you don't label who you are talking too.

Wall is much more hyped than

Wall is much more hyped than Ebi. Theres a reason he is projected to go #1. Ebi never got that respect. He was a long athletic player that got taken on potential. Wall is in a different boat. I dont know official measurements but he looks taller than Rose. He moves like Rose but finishes like Wade. Cant get a much better combination than that.

Wall was # 1

They were like the top 15 prospects in there class. Remember, the class were Dwight Howard, Shaun Livingston, and Sebastian Telfair among others were drafted higher than them in the 03 and 04 class? Swift was the only one out of those 3 who was taken in the lotto I believe. John Wall s much higher ranked, and he gets more pub than all 3 of them when they were prospects.
