If you were starting a franchise and had to choose B.Jennings or Reke Evans at point who would you choose and why? Its easy to me I take jennings better player and is a real point guard. Jennings is better than evans at every part of the game except size. Everybody talks about evans and one on one workouts that's the thing with him and other players it's a team game not one on one he doesn't make anybody better. When they met in SL jennings gave him the biz its on youtube!
Jennings, Evans is more or a combo and not a true play maker.
I would pick Evans. I like Jennings and think he will be a good player but Tyreke will be better he dominated every guard he played in workouts including Jennings he easily had the best freshmen year and Jennings was a bust in europe. Tyreke is a better shooter than he is given credit for he just has a ugly shot he can get to the basket and freethrow line at will and he has very good handles.
I thing Reke will be a good player and eventually on of the best bucket getters in the league. he can handle the ball so well for a player his size and can create his own shot at will and his passing is underrated. i think he can play the point but scores to well to be a full-time point guard he is not a pure point guard. there are not many of them around these days ala. He will be able to get assist and run a team with time and be a good nba player. he did dominate the other guards in one on one works out. as much as the nba is one and one that does not make him a better player. Jennings is a true pg and has great passing skill, did you see the sick pass he throw the other day to Bogot. Player like Jennings are rare and they make their teammates look better by setting them up. he jennings has a chance to be special. that is why I will go with him over Reke.
jeff..go to hoopshype.com and read some of the teams interviews after workout..evans didnt dominate every guard at the workouts..in new york stephen curry dominated him and in another jennings gave him work..not that it matters because workouts are one on one and like someone said its a team game..plus kwame brown dominated everyone in workouts and we see how that turned out..as far as jennings in europe he had a pretty good season..no highschooller is gonna dominae over there..nba players go over and dont even dominate.euro is alot harder then ncaa basketball its the second toughest competition behind the nba then its d leauge then another leauge or 2 then ncaa...im not sure if you have watched preseason but evans is not a better shooter then given credit for and his 3pointer is none existant (i think he has missed every attempt...ill take jennings all day everyday
TWO MY FAVOURITES ROOKIES! I believe they will give good challenge to Blake Griffin.
Just in the summer I thought and I think still that Tyreke is something like 15/4/4 rookie second(close to first)best rookie, so as a Rookie I would take him easily...
but as a player IDK! I fall in love even more know with Jennings when i saw that he isn't so "kid" and he can play like nba ready. still don't think he can be as good rookie as Tyreke but after 3-5yrs it will be interesting, with teams coming to the Playoffs i think they would easily be all-stars..
I just don't see Tyreke as a PG , he is SG. So sorry Flynn sorry Rubio sorry Harden and even DeRozan(another fav rookie) but these two guys will be best in their positions IMO
I still would take Tyreke, you can't pass on guy who probably will gets his first triple double in his rookie year, I see that Jennings could be near 20ppg guy i see him also as a 10apg player and top5 in stealsbut Reke is so solid, think 23ppg 6rpg 5apg near 2spg in 5years.
Personally, there both the next coming at there positions.I'd take Jennings though, he's a way better passer,he just knows how 2 get his team mates great looks and easy buckets,he's quicker knows how to score in bunches,as for Tyreke I think he will end up a moving triple double I mean your 6'5 playing point guard people say he isn't a pg but he's effective at that position you see what happened when Memphis made him the PG and playing in Sac-Town getting to do what ever he will learn quicker since he can do what ever.
i wouldn't want a jamal crawford or larry hughes, but lets face it. This draft is nothing but Jamal crawford's and Larry Hughes's and Stromile Swift's after Griffin. 2 through 10 was all a roll of the dice. Tyreke dropped darn near a tripple double on the lakers with 16-9-9 the other day and he looked like a guy who can become a top 2 or 3 option on any team. The kings will be very happy.
Yes there is a lot of bums in this draft but as for the PG's and da SG/SF they are going to be good nba players.....people have to give a lot of these players a couple of years to develope to see where there game goes. As for Tyreke they still went on a 22 game winning streak he is turn over prone but most rookie PGs are. This draft isn't that bad people the guards make it good.
I'd go Jennings. He has all the tools to be one of the very best PG's in the NBA, which I think he'll become. He also gets style points from me because he makes ridiculous passes and plays. I think Tyreke Evans will be a great scorer at the point, but I don't see him being an instinctive passer to create for others, which is very important for any PG.
i think he will be a pretty good sg ..i dont think he has the potenial of a derozen though..as of now hes a better player but in a couple years when he finishes developing then he can be the best sg of this draft(if he continues to develop like hes been doing
Jennings will be top 5 pg in the future behind Cp3,D-Will,Rose, n Devin Harris he has the perfect PG tools. I think Tyreke can be that to but he must learn to set his team up.
just thought i'd throw out some numbers here:
player 1 in last game: 21pts, 8 ast, 4 rebs in 31 minutes of play
player 2 in last game: 16pts, 7 ast, 2 rebs in 28 minutes of play
player 3 in last game: 9pts, 4 ast, 4 rebs in 16 minutes of play
can you guess who is who? player 3 is none other than steph curry, and while he's not in the conversation so much in 16 minutes it's not a bad stat line. player 2 is brandon jennings. obviously a SOLID stat line. player 1 obviously is tyreke evans. so much for "Evans doesn't know how to set anyone up". he was superior to jennings in every facet of the game RIGHT NOW and he has the potential to get even better. i'll take evans any day.
yeah but do you notice you are only naming one game...setting someone up consistantly is the problem ..anyone can do it one game ..im guessing you forgot the 5ast to 4 turnovers a game huh and thats the issue..no one doubts his scoring but the setting people up ..and biggest of all making others better which right now he isnt good at and the turnovers
if you start talking about all preseason then its even not close.. tyreke 15/5/5/1 and even almost 1 blk..Jennings 11/3/6/2 Curry 9/4/6/ plus both guys fg% are terrible
as a pg..assits to turnover ration is a big deal am i correct?....it was never any doubt that evans can score..plus his scoring isnt suprising considering its for the worst team in the nba..like some people( i think you too lalaia) good stats on a bad team is overrated or something liek that..and his fg percentage other than drives is horrible..i think the 3pt being 25 percent..actualyl went up because of the last game because it was 0
Yes ast/to is a big deal, but isn't combo of scoring,rebounding,stealing,blocking bigger deal?...all have weaknesses, A.I. wasn't good in that category, Westbrook wasn't in his rookie year, but they are terrific talents, so is Tyreke IMO.(I'm not saying he is that good, but he is good enough)
not if you need youre pg to help make others better..him taking more attempts then martin is not gonna lead to wins..you do want youre pg to be able to score but the first thing you want is to have youre pg to not turn the ball over so much and then you want him to set up youre best offensive weapon and then other players unless he is the number one option that can lead the team to wins
