Ty Lawson is the new rookie of year leader via espn.com. I dont agree with this since he is on a contender team and doesnt have to shoulder the load as much as brandon jennings or flynn may have to. But is this the best PG class ever with jennings, flynn, curry, lawson, and evans (not a pg IMO)? I think its a possibility, it seems like everyone has a different opinion on all 5 of them being better than each other. I know time will only tell, but as of right now, what do you guys think?
I would have to go back and look at past drafts, but it sure seems this would be the best. Also, keep an eye on young guys like Teague, Holiday, and Beaubois down the line. And don't forget Rubio either, I think he will be a very good nba player.
Maybe the deepest. Class of '05 had better point guards.
You have a star in the making in Jennings, a couple very solid starters in Curry, Ty, Flynn and Teague( trust me). Tyreke will be moved to the 2 eventually unless he starts looking for others more. He reminds me of a guard version of Maggette crossed with Wade. Rubio has tons of potential and I think Rodrique is Barbosa 2.0
All i know regardless of who wins the rookie of the year jennings is still a very good player
hey we can't forget people with talent like patty mills in the 2nd round to the blazers. he may be okay when he isn't injured and gets more burn.
could probably be the deepest and would be more deeper if evans learns the position(reminds me of a less athletic larry huges (both were tall pg in college but fit best at sg neither could shoot and both could get to the hole pretty well)
Yeah he reminds me of larry hughes too Evans probably lead the rookies in scoring for they year since martin is out he is getting the green light.
Right now he is playing shooting guard he amazes how he get to the free throw only problem is he cant shoot
Yeah, this is definetly a PG class for the ages
You have guys like Evans, Flynn, Curry and Jennings who have been showing signs of greatness in there first 10 games...
Then deeper down in the draft, you have guys like Teague, Holiday, Lawson, Beabouis, who might not be a major part of their teams rotations, but there definetly apart of the future
And then you got the guys like Maynor, Collison, Douglas, Beverly*, Calathes*, Price, and Mills who have alot of skill, just need to put it all together on an NBA level
This may be the deepest talent in pg class but not the best pgs class. I would have to say CP3 and Dwill's class was the best. Because they are the two best PGs in the league right now and will be for awhile.
You guys are nuts....deepest maybe, but what does that mean? The best draft for PGs was obviously 2005 with two future hall of famers....Also I would take last years draft class where you have Rose, Westbrook,Augustine, Chalmers and a bunch of combos who could be considered PGs at some point Bayless, Mayo, Hill,
Agree with td8118. 2005 had Chris Paul and Deron Williams, the top two points in the league. Two other good starters in Monta Ellis and Raymond Felton and two good combo guards off the bench in Nate Robinson and Jarrett Jack.
1996 was a hell of a year too. Two future hall of famers (Nash and Iverson), a multiple time all-star in Stephon Marbury and a NBA championship starter in Derek Fisher.
draftexpress actually did a whole study thing on this subject
nah it aint the best none of their careers will equate to the top two in 05 paul,williams nor the 96 AI, Nash, Marbury but this class is deep and has some real good players down the line and will be the future of the league for the next 5-10 yrs
In Deron Williams and Chris Pauls rookie year no one thought they were gonna be HOFers, give it some time...i believe this class has the POTENTIAL to be one of the greatest PG classes of all-time
i think jennings has the potenial to get on the paul williams level ...aslo people do forget that neither as rookies were the players that they are today
the more i think about it the more i cant say because when other rookie pg came in wit there class they were full of potential and some people thought they were gonna be real good but never fully panned out. that could happen to this class also
