Re: 2009 Mock Draft
1. Rubio is more than a year younger than Jennings.
2. Rubio made the Spanish Olympic team, and actually played for a gold medal.
3. Rubio may not be as athletic, but he is also 3 inches taller.
4. Rubio is a far better defender than Jennings.
Jennings could be a great player, and both of these guys are among the most talented young PG in the world. But Rubio has played against NBA players in the Olympics and held his own. To say he isn't as good as Williams and Paul is stupid. No other PG in the world is that good, much less some 17 year old kid.
