Derrick Rose vs Ricky Rubio
 
The best point guard prospects in the latest drafts.

1) Who do you think will have a better rookie season?
2) Who do you think will have a better career?

I think Rubio will have a better rookie campaign, but I think Rose will have a better career. He just has so much potential.

I believe Rose will have had a better rookie season offensively, but I could see Rubio having better court vision. I would imagine Rubio will stuggle defensively aswell. I expect Rubio to have an 11 point, 7 assist rookie season while having a FG% around 49%.

2) Who do you think will have a better career?

We'll see. There are too many things outside of actual basketball that could determine this question.

Not really a fair comparison as Rose was over a year older than Rubio will be as a rookie. You should give Ricky two years.

It all depends on where Ricky goes and if he starts.

Rose is a far better player, and his rookie season and career will surpass Rubio's by miles. I fully expect to see Rubio back in Europe in the next 5 years. He won't last in the League.

it's kinda hard to top rose's season as he elevated a to a legendary rookie debut.

I think that Rubio has a 50-50 shot at being the next Jason Kidd, otherwise he's the next Jayson Williams (I think I spelled the name of the white dude from the Kings and Heat right). I think Rose will have the better rookie year, especially if you take into account the playoffs, but Rubio will have a slightly better career. Could go either way, though, since Rubio's more of a pass-first guy while Rose seems like he's more likely to average 24 and 8 or something.

1) Who do you think will have a better rookie season?

Rose. He set the bar pretty high. Another thing is that a stat frequently recurred to measure success is ppg, and Rubio isn't expected to be a prolific scorer, much less in his rookie season. And we still have to see if he is going to share minutes with Conley.

Rubio's main strengths as a prospect are his court vision and his defense. I think Rubio won't take long to play decent defense, but this is an area that Rose also looked great. I do think he will display better court vision than Rose as a rookie -not to say Rose's court vision is bad at all-.

2) Who do you think will have a better career?

Agree with undisputed, too many factors remain uncertain at this point. You often have to wait 3~4 years before giving the jury on a player. And people are often wrong even then. A kid who has yet to play an NBA game? Too early even for a quick guess.

I could say that if Rose stays on the track he is, without major problems, will have a great career, and that's just because his rookie season was really terrific.

This has to be the worst thread of the year. Derrick Rose has the potential to be better than Magic Johnson. We will leave it at that.

No way Ricky has a better rookie season than Rose's, but as for their careers, anything can happen.
Ricky will take time to develop, give him time.

Derrick Rose has weak passing skills. Magic Johnson he ain't. A better and more athletic version of Stephon Marbury is what I see. And maybe not a cancer like Steph either.
