Gay is a scorer and that's about it. He has the tools to be a world class defender, but shows no interest in playing defense. He is naturally very stat orientated especially in the points department which is his biggest strength and weakness. He is only 24 I think, if he gets his head together he could be a scary player. He just doesn't seem to have the intangibles naturaly that fellow teammates Gasol and Mayo seem to possess

LOL @ your Mayo love. People hate him here because YOU over-rate him. He wasn't the 2nd best player, or 3rd.

How did my boy D. Rose do?

I glanced at the box score and saw he led the game in assists and had 0 turnovers.

He did have a weak game, but his perimeter defense will be desperately needed against all of those international 3pt shooting bigs. This will be a tough call.

Durant is going to have a hell of a season next year.

Liked what Gordon, Chandler and D-Rose did.

Love watching Westbrook play but not sure if his style is best for international ball. He'll murder the Angolas of the world with his full court pressure but his lack of shooting with hurt vs Spain etc.

Derrick has shut me up. I was one to lead the Westbrook>Rose movement after Westbrook abused Fisher. It is obvious though that Rose is the better player. Westbrook can't stand a lone he is the product of Kevin Durant assist wise. He is not a great playmaker and turns the ball over too much. He thinks he has a great offensive game, but really doesn't which is why he shoots such a horrendous percentage from the field.

Derrick Rose was the best pg tonight, but even his assists were a product of Kevin Durant. Rose just made the simply pass to Durant off a screen or something and Durant would fire at will.

Best defender on the team. He is safe. He may not be a shooter, but he can rebound and play D. He is a coach K role player.

Neither Westbrook or Rondo are what this team needs or best for international ball. They are both kinda of ball dominate especially Rondo, and they both turn the ball over way too much.

With Derrick Rose actually understanding the concept of not being ball dominate and Billups for experience. I don't see why we just keep 2 PGs on our squad. Then get keep 3 sgs OJ Mayo, Stephen Curry, and Eric Gordon. I mean it isn't that hard to give the ball to Kevin Durant and get out his way then hit open shots when need be. OJ showed tonight that he can play the SF spot for international play since he added muscle. I really hope Coach K makes the right decision by cutting either Westbrook or Rondo.

People don't think he has the skill and obviously exhibitions/off court activities don't count but D. Rose did kill in the skills competition.

The ability is there.

I think Rose will start to shine more after the confidence he gleans for team USA and the improved Bull's roster.

Coach K and Coleagelo have no stock in putting D. Rose over any other player--besides winning and keeping their jobs/reputations.

This says something [however how minor] about where Rose is right now as far as his game and his respect in the basketball community.

If Westbrook or OJ or Rondo would have had 8 assists off of 0 turns people would have been talking about their PG play and court vision.

Why doesn't Rose get that same credit?

don't lie to yourself, he was tonight and the box score proves it. Even that doesn't do justice for his leadership out there. Give the man his props and let's see what happens during the first exhibition.

I liked the fact that Rose took care of the ball in such a sloppy game. He controlled the game nicely, but Kevin Durant made him look good assist wise. Durant is honestly one of the best catch and shoot guys to have ever played in the NBA.

Rose wasn't like Jason Kidd though with eyes in the back of his head. I do recall saying one time wow, that was a good pass. That is a scale I factor court vision on, not a simply pass to a catch and shooter coming of a pick. Rondo had a few wow that was a nice pass moment, but he was too sloppy with the ball.
