John Calipari

So the past three years Calipari has had three great young guards but who do yall think will be the best between his past three guards. Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall.

Better Shooter?

Better Driver?

Better Passer?

Better Teamate?

Better Leader?

If yall could choose one who would yall pick?

How good will Eric Bledsoe be next year?

I'll give it a try

best shooter- Wall, he has a nice stroke just needs to work on it. Rose and Evans shoot below 26% from 3-point land
best driver- Evans, big guy with long arms and can get to the basket any time- will make a living at the free throw line
best passer- Rose, he just needs more shooters on his team and his assist would go up by 2 a game
best teammate- tough one, have to take Evans- whats he's doing in Sac--town is crazy
best leader- Wall, I think will be a great leader

Rose is the guy I would take right now, I know what I'm getting out of him and he's already made an All-star team.

Bledsoe will okay, takes too many bad shots and turns the ball over too much. Like to see what he can do when he's running the show by himself.

So the past three years

So the past three years Calipari has had three great young guards but who do yall think will be the best between his past three guards. Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall.

Better Shooter? rose's midrange shot has been more consistent

Better Driver? in order tyreke, rose, wall ..in a half court game tyreke gets to the rack with ease his length strength and ball handling makes it hard for people to stop him, rose uses his speed and quickness to get the the rack ,wall struggles a lot in the half court

Better Passer? rose, he finds the open man better then wall and evans

Better Teamate? rose, it seems like its hard for the kings to adjust to tyreke because he is not a pg and thats what he is playing as of now we will have to wait until wall enters the nba and if he ends up on a bad team he will pick up bad habits to add to some of his

Better Leader? rose is already a leader on a playoff team even tho the east is bad but the bulls wouldnt be 6th in the east without him

If yall could choose one who would yall pick? rose, if i was starting a team from scratch i would pick rose

How good will Eric Bledsoe be next year? lottery pick if he stays on track but if brandon night decides to goto to UK bledsoe enters the draft because i think he wants to establish himself as a good pg and with night commin he goes back to playin the same role as this year

hmmmm id take evans. when

hmmmm id take evans. when comparing shooting i think you have to compare how they shot in college because wall has it much easier shooting from a shooter distance and worst players then evans and rose does in the nba.

i take evans because he can play and guard pg and sg although i wouldnt play him at the pg more then sg. plus hes bigger and stronger and has more weapons. second i would take rose over wall only because i dont know what wall will do at the pro level yet

best passer i would have to take wall
driver evans
teammate rose
leader evans/wall

i like bledsoe's potential but im curious to see how he does as a full time point guard because he racks up a good amount of turnovers while playing off the ball

Better Shooter? Derrick

Better Shooter? Derrick Rose's midgame has improved

Better Driver? Tyreke Evans in halfcourt, although Wall can turn it up in transition

Better Passer? John Wall

Better Teamate? John Wall

Better Leader? Derrick Rose, although I think John Wall will become just as great a leader.

If yall could choose one who would yall pick? John Wall

How good will Eric Bledsoe be next year? 2nd team All-American as long as he works hard, lottery pick.

Better Shooter? Wall...but

Better Shooter? Wall...but NONE of them can be considered 'good shooters'

Better Driver? Tyreke Evans..

Better Passer? I say Rose...

Better Teamate? Rose...nice to have a guy like that on your team...

Better Leader? Rose..hes the head guy on a playoff team...

If yall could choose one who would yall pick? I gotta see Wall in the NBA first, but right now its Rose

How good will Eric Bledsoe be next year? I dont know...gotta see how he handles the point position full time...dont think hes as good as everyone else is making him out to be, but i'll say late lottery

how can someone say that

how can someone say that john wall is a better Better Shooter,Better Passer,Better Leader
..... in college rose shot a better percentage than both of them, just because wall is flashy dosent make him a better passer and he is no where near the leader evans and rose are

Let's ask the better

Let's ask the better question. How many of these guys did Calipari get w/o breaking any NCAA violations??

The Answer: Zero.

i say he didnt break any

i say he didnt break any rules...what makes you think he has?..he gets players because of the offense he has...does it mean coach k and dean smith broke rules because of good players he got?..if you use ncaa violations as a answer i say take a look at those...marcus camby didnt get money from coach cal marcus did that on his own..cal didnt tell rose to let someone else take his test..rose did that on his own or through his family. i can see if any peopel that helped these guys out said..."yeah coach cal was behind all of this" but not one said that. they have said that with tark sampson the coach at ucla and other coachs whos teams got sanctioned...not one has said coach cal was involved

While Coach Cal has not been

While Coach Cal has not been accused of breaking any rules, then do you consider it coincidental that the two schools he has taken to the final four both committed violations. I mean yes the offense is very friendly for the NBA track, but when the recruits he is getting is much better than everyone else in the conference he coaches in (Conference USA) then that raises questions as to what he is doing. Also, it's really hard to know the truth because of how crooked the NCAA is. I mean John Wall is allowed to play when he clearly broke a rule in accepting money from an agent, so where's the integrity.

Better Shooter? This is an

Better Shooter? This is an extremely toguh question for me, but I think Wall will be the best shooter of the 3 in the future. He's already got the best mid-range game of the 3, and even though all are poor 3-point shooters, I think Wall is the best 3-point shooter of the 3.

Better Driver? I think in half-court Tyreke Evans was the best slasher, with Rose being a close 2nd. Evans is a very strong slasher to the rim and he eats contact and finishes. Rose has always been nice slashing in the half-court game, but he's much better in transition. Wall is the best slasher in transition though of the 3, quite easily.

Better Passer? I have to say it's Rose. Wall is the more flashy passer, but Rose isn't nearly as turnover prone and makes smart decisions with the ball. Evans isn't a true playmaking PG at all, even though he can make basic drive and dish passes.

Better Teamate? I think it has to be Rose. He's the least selfish of all of these guys and dictates pace better than Wall or Evans.

Better Leader? John Wall. He knows when to take over games, and he shows a refusal to lose that is great for someone his age. He also is very fiery and can raise hi teammates level of play with his ability to lead by example.

If yall could choose one who would yall pick? John Wall. He seems like he will be a mega-star in the NBA. I think Rose will be a superstar, but I just get the feeling Wall will be unbelievable by his 2nd season.

How good will Eric Bledsoe be next year? He'll be a solid player, and I think he'll leanr how to be a college PG and he'll have his rough spots, but I think he's a guy that's better with the ball in his hands. Watch out for him next year
