People are REALLY sleeping on Rudy now. It's funny because I bashed him all year for his soft play and reluctance to step up when it mattered......but based off pure skill talent/skill level, he's the best player in the draft. He's not JUST an athlete. Far from it, his jump shot is beautiful and he blows by people when he goes to the basket. If you give him an open look it's money from 20-25 feet. He jumps to the moon and can pass. In the open floor obviously he's exciting.
Now, i'll say he underperformed at UCONN given his skill level. But in terms of talent, I honestly think he's the only guy in the draft that i've seen that can be a superstar. Because I don't trust his mindset, I don't think he will be. I think he's fragile, and he becomes nonfactors in games based on if he hits his first couple shots..........But i'd be willing to bet he's just as skilled as Pippen was when he came out of college. He damn sure shoots better than Scottie ever did, and Scottie wasn't a bricklayer.
This is about projections, right?
Gay reminds me of Jeffries when he was in college, I see him projecting out as the same type player with more up's. Gay will be a 13ppg and 7 rpg guy that's it nothing more, I don't care much for guys that have never done anything. people always say, in the future this and in the future this, but he has not done anything to date. He is not in Morrison's league as a player, but Morrison is damaged goods. Would a team rather have a 20 ppg guy for five years or a 13ppg game for 13 that's the question, Gay will be what he has always been a tease.
