delonte west clone. and

delonte west clone. and thats not a slight because delonte west is pretty good. this is the time that fans tend to get a lil over excited. when a teamisnt that good and they start toplay there rookies and the rookies put up good numbers. then people think they should have started allalongand dont conider that players that they play behind are better. happend last year with donte green and alot of people thought he shouldbe a starter the next year

Jrue Holiday is a player

Jrue Holiday is a player that solid at everything (Except shooting) but he's still not that good to me, and his upside isn't all that high. He's a backup PG IMO. I agree with the Delonte West comparisons for the most part, especially when Delonte was a rookie, and if he gets a shot like Delonte has developed then the comparison will be more inevitable.

Ummmm

Ok....His upside isn't that high? He's the youngest player in the league.

Jrue can be a very good player. In 2 years, he could be a starter and a real contributer on a nightly basis.

Holiday doing this is

Holiday doing this is impressive because most thought he was futher away from doing any of this in the league after looking unimpressive in summer league and early on. This at least shows that his potential could be realize soon. Remember he is at present a good defender so if he can develop his offensive game being that he is young and fine tune his play making he can be special but Philly may get Wall and some other team may showcase his talents.

Honestly i was a doubter

Honestly i was a doubter too. But he seems more comfortable, and aggressive then he was in college. Iggy why dont you see upside? he has very good length, quickness, and athleticism. Honestly i see him a lot like Eric Snow he was my favorite player as a former Sixers fan even over Iverson.

Oxymoron. You ask why I

Oxymoron.

You ask why I don't see alot of upside in him, then compare him Eric Snow. Realistically, how much better does he have to get to be as good as Snow?? He just needs the ball to be effective, and he's still not even a true PG. And just because you have good length doesn't mean you have high upside. Watching him season I don't see him as anything more than mediocre athletically or in terms of quickness. I maintain that the only thing he does at more than a mediocre level is play defense. Nothing about him is all that good besides that.

Realistically, I don't see

Realistically, I don't see him getting more minutes than Lou Williams next season. I've watched just about every 76er game this season, and Holiday is nothing more than a backup. He's got upside of course, but he's not going to be more than an average starter in the future. I can tell.

Lou Williams starts at SG

Lou Williams starts at SG and finishes as PG. Jrue has been starting at PG but he's usually on a quick leash, so if he's ineffective running the offense or messing up on D he won't see alot of minutes after the 1st quarter. Today, Holiday was great from the beginning so Coach Jordan stuck with him.

Next year, I see Lou being the starter and Holiday being the backup. They won't have a small backcourt like that next season.

I went to the Hawks vs.

I went to the Hawks vs. 76ers game Wednesday, and Holiday was ineffective that game. He has a (relatively) big game like the one he had today every once in a while, but he's usually very mediocre in most other games.

Yeah thats why im comparing

Yeah thats why im comparing him to Snow not Wade like he was compared to coming out of high school. Snow did have a 12.9 point season once and his assist numbers were good. He does have very good potential though.

He is a starter. He just

He is a starter. He just plays reserve minutes. Think Dahntay Jones in Denver last season.

He starts in the 1st quarter, plays about 8-10 minutes seemingly, doesn't play in the 2nd, then plays again in the 3rd for about 8-10 minutes again, then not in the 4th.

ive repped jrue from day

ive repped jrue from day one, and even i didn't think he woudl do anything his rookie year. He is the youngest player in the nba and he is starting and he is well rounded and has nothing but upside. Like i said from day one and guys like iggy and huestis &$#%#&@!ed, holiday is a baller and he will prove himself as one of the best players from this draft.

he's 19 years old is a legit

he's 19 years old is a legit pg and has zero weknesses, He shoots, defends, rebounds, and is a pass fisrts guard and you think his upside is possibly becoming delonte west???? That would be his prediction if he screws up. At 19, delonte was still trying to prove himslef in a mid major conference. Jrue is light years ahead of him at the same stage.

he doesnt do what? Again, im talking about a teenager who is starting in the nba.

He has a very decent shot, handle, he defends, he always has his head up finding the open man. He is well rounded and is still figuring this game out. And you want to call his upside Delonte West??

Yes im a ucla fan and i tend to stick up for them. But i call it like i see it. If he sucked and had no upside, i would be the first one on this site to say it. So no, no matter how much we disagree, im not related to him and i dont think im going overboard. You didn't even think he should have been drafted in the first round.

Yes. He's like Delonte West

Yes. He's like Delonte West at best. His shot, ball-handling and passing ability all are mediocre. He's not even a pure PG. He just needs the ball in his hands to be at his best. The oinnly thing he's really a standout at is on-ball defense.

I think Jrue Holiday must've hacked your account on here man....

His passing isnt great yet but its improving. and is a very good slasher when aggressive. Honestly i think thats a decent comparison, but he CAN be a lot better.

well, we had this debate

well, we had this debate before the draft. You said he wans't a first rounder and doubted his ability to even play in the nba. I said it will take time, but the dude is gonna make his mark and prove himself.

So far, he is 19 years old and starting. He has put up impressive stats in numerous games and the team has obviously made him a key point in their future plnas. So I guess I'm ahead.

Yea he's played a little

Yea he's played a little more than I thought since Philly picked him. He's more NBA-ready than anyone thought, but he's worse than most of the PG's that are rookies. You made it like he has no weaknesses, so I let you know from watching him play more than you have that he's not all that your making him out to be.

what have i made him to

what have i made him to be??? I said he was a top 10 prospect before the draft but admitteed it would take time. I said he is well rounded with zero weaknesses, but he is still a tennager whio is showing growth. I see a guy who is tall, athletic, and makes smart decisions while trying to figure this game out. He defends and has shown a solid jumper. I think his growth and upside is very high. There is not one thing about him that makes me think he will hit a wall and stop improving. You're a philly fan and all you do is &$#%#&@! on him and talk about how they should have drafted teague. Maybe you need to drop the bias and learn to embrace your future pg.

im not saying he is going to

im not saying he is going to be a superstar but if people say he is going to be a backup so what. he is the youngest player in the league so his offense will get better. he already pit forth good effort on d and will also get better at that. the sixers didnt take hime in the lottery. so to be honest even as a defensive minded backup point guard that cant even leagally drink or gamble he was decent value. i mean guys picked first in the draft have had worse years that holiday has. there will be a place in the league for him because someone needs to guard all these quick point guards in the league like rose rondo paul collison brooks lawson nelson etc. everyone bashes the guy because he was a high school all american and he doesnt score 20 per game. back off of him he has already passed many people on this site expectations. at worst he is a solid backup there has been worse with the 17th pick in the draft.

why does everyone keepbring

why does everyone keepbring upthe 19 years old thing?..there have been other 19 year olds in the nba and 19 is very close to 20 and 21. once youre inthe nba andyoung its doesnt matter if youre 19,20,or 21. that doesnt mean his potentialis bigger then guys who are older it just means his body can possibly last a year longer then someone whos older. he will be learning the same things that guys like jennings and curry and other young guards willlearn. when youre that close in age then it doesnt really matter as much as some of ya'll keep trying to make i like he has a better chance of getting better then someone whos 21 or 22. theres other guards int he nba who could have started for the sixers at 19

He's got plenty of

He's got plenty of weaknesses. He's shooting 3's alright this season (38%), but he averages just off of 2 3's per game. He's better in mid-range, but still nothing all that great.

He's not that athletic. Or that quick for an NBA PG.

He's nothing more than mediocre as I said as a passer. He averages 2 assists a game and never really sets up guys for open looks other than off of pick and roll plays, and he has a whole bunch of times where he's ineffective and the offense goes stale.

If he could shoot, pass, handle the ball, defend, and rebound at a high level, trust me. I would be super happy he played for Philly and I would think he'd play more than 20 minutes a game. Your making it like this guy is Chauncey Billups. You should watch him play in the NBA, because he's noting like all this stuff you claim he is. He wasn't even doing all of that stuff you said in college. Maybe you watched him play in HS or something, but your severely overrating him.

quincey, you should know

quincey, you should know there is a huge difference between 19 and 21 or 22 years old. That is an age where you are figuring out who you are and what you can do. If Jrue played in college until he was 21 years old, he would have been putting up bigger numbers and people wouldn't hate as much. What about his game and skill set makes you think he is not gonna get better?

Quincey

He can make shots when he's wide open, but he rarely even tries to shoot off the dribble or when contested.

iggy, you should know when i

iggy, you should know when i talk about players i have watched them play. If you think i i haven't seen jrue play this year, you are delusional. Go ahead and continue to doubt. Reality is that we are both just sitting here guessing what he is capable of. Fact is that he is a starting nba pg at 19 years old and he is only gonnna get better.

If you don't think he is a nba starter, then keep feeling that way. But if you continue to dismiss him as an legit prospect, then maybe only one intelligent basketball fan joined this site on April 14th????

Even if you have watched him

Even if you have watched him play alot, tell me one thing I've said hasn't been true. I'm not going to say that he's done anything that he hasn't done, or vice versa. There is no way you can honestly say that after seeing him play this season, that he's shown the ability to shoot, rebound, pass, handle the ball, and defend all at a high level. Because he hasn't done all that at one time. If you try to convince me that he has, then either you have him mixed up with Andre Iguodala or you haven't been watching any meaningful amount of games.

No

We can...You can't. According to you, Jrue has reached his ceiling at 19 and won't get any better. He is a starter and has had some big games, and you completely dismiss all of that. He does nothing right...That's basically what your saying and I couldn't disagree more.

Just because you don't agree

Just because you don't agree with silly things like Jrue Holiday is good at every aspect of basketball, your hating. A PG who averages 5 ppg and 3 apg in the NBA and 8 ppg and 3 apg in college. I call em exactly how I see em.

And who really cares if you take points from me.

first off, i never touched

first off, i never touched your points. Im a 28 year old man, points are stupid.

Secondly, yes, you are hating on jrue. It's cool if you think he sucks. But don't act like you are giving him a fair shake when you are not. You have not said one positive thing beofrre, during or after the draft. He just put up 21/7/7 tonight. Keep in mind that's a 19 year old we are talking about
