Default I would take Jonny Flynn over both Rubio and Jennings



Name: Jonny Flynn
Age: 19 (Feb. 6)
Position: Point Guard
Size: 6'0" 185
School: Syracuse (Sophomore)
2008 Stats: 18.1 ppg, 4.9 apg, 1.9 spg, 53.5 fg%, 38.6 3fg%
Accomplishments: New York Mr. Basketball, 3rd ranked pg out of the 2007 high school class (behind only Derrick Rose and Jerryd Bayless), 2007 McDonald's All-American, Big East Freshman of the Year, All Big East freshman Team, 3rd team freshman all-America, Most points by a Syracuse player in freshman debut (previously held by Carmelo Anthony), Member of 2006 USA Men's U18 National Team, Member of 2007 Men's U19 National Team

I watch a lot of college ball (check the forum) and this is no knock on Jennings and Rubio as I feel both of them will be great, but Flynn is the best of the 3.

Offense: Takes very high percentage shots. Likes the 3 ball and has made NBA distance 3s with ease during college games. Penetrates and gets to the basket without a problem. Ballhandling is top notch. Great court vision delivering the ball to his teammates at the right time. Finishes with the big boys in the paint despite being small.

Defense: Flynn gets right up in the chest of his defender. He pushes the opposing ball handler to center court game after game and dares them to go further. Gets into the passing lanes as his 2 steals per game show.

Athleticism: That boy got springs. Possibly the fastest pg in the nation, if not then definately fastest that will be in '09 draft.

Clutch: Game winning 3 pointer vs. St. Joeseph's, 3 pointer to tie the game at the buzzer vs. Kansas, always wants to take the game wining shot.

Character traits: For anyone concerned about attitutes and such....Was member of the National Honor Society at Niagara Falls High School, son of a pastor (hey it's gotta count for something, right? ), great with the media

Negatives: Only 6'0". May measure 5'11" without shoes at the draft. But so did DJ Augustin. Finishes strong among the big bodies for his size though.

And now for the highlights...
