Whoever drafts him better be ready to build their team to be up-tempo. I also think that they need to be willing to wait for him to come into his own as a player. He will turn the ball over a lot and take a lot of bad shots his first couple seasons. They can't be like Boston and trade him just because he gets off to a slow start like they did Billups.

Definitely not like Kidd in general, but as a pg running the fast break, he's the closest thing to Kidd for some time. There are similarities in KJ and Kidd, but Rose has much more strength.
