i agree jennings > Rubio

Count me in to and throw in it ain't even close. What little I have seen of Jennings and Rubio when I watch Jennings play I see an NBA point guard who plays like an NBA point guard when I watch Rubio the only thing I see is he looks like Pistol Pete Maravich (who I have only seen on old footage or tapes). I just don't see why anyone takes Rubio over Jennings.

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.

Blake Griffin is a mix of Karl Malone scoring and Dennis Rodman rebounding

I'm not sure I'd throw Rodman in there, just a different kind of beast. But I think he compares most favorably to Malone with a dash of Chris Webber in his game.
