Rubio 100%, so much maturity for someone his age. He started his pro career in Spain when he was 15. He could lead an NBA team already.

Default Re: I would take Jonny Flynn over both Rubio and Jennings

I watched this guy play the other day. He was impressive.... but puting him on Baron Davis's level of explosiveness is a little much.

I think they did say he was playing hurt though?

I didn't watch him much his freshman year, as it seems Syracuse is getting less and less national exposure since they have been visiting the NIT the past few years.

I would take Jennings over Flynn, but I love Flynn. Height is overrated.

Only reason Flynn won't be a lottery pick is because he's probably going to measure at 5'10" when he hits the predraft camp. If he was a legit 6'2" he'd be the first PG taken this coming draft.

I have stood next to Flynn, (spare me the "pics or it didn't happen" routine) and since I am nearly 6ft3 ( certainly 6ft2 or taller) Flynn can't be any less than 6ft to my eyes. He might be as tall as 6ft 1.

Just for the record the guy is very likable as a person. Flynn is friendly, unassuming, and a little bit of a joker, he seems to genuinely like to make people laugh. Good kid all the way, and a ton of talent too.

of course, if he was 6'2 he'd be #1 overall arguably, so gay how they look so much into height.

Yeah maybe but the reason Stuckey has been effective is due to his size.

I think he'll be one of those 5'11" barefoot guys like Augustin was this year.

What separates Flynn is his defense. He really gets low in his stance and doesn't let his man get by him. You HAVE to set screens on him.

Right now he's probably in the 15-20 range in the first round (Da ko king might know more). And yes if he was 6'2" he'd be in the Rubio/Jennings "top pg in the draft" discussion.

Funny how scouts think you need to be 6'2 to defend NBA pg's and he's the best defender of the 3.

I'd take Ty Lawson and Patrick Mills over Flynn, maybe even Calathes.

Default Re: I would take Jonny Flynn over both Rubio and Jennings

I love watching this kid play, he has so much poise. Even now I would still take Jennings because if he managed to fill out just a little bit he would be very hard to stop defensively. I would take Flynn over Rubio however simply because I don't see Rubio's game translating well to the NBA.

What's something that Rubio/Jennings are CLEARLY better at than Flynn? I'd give Jennings the athleticism advantage but as far as talent there isn't 1 aspect of their game that's clearly better.
