Jonny Flynn isn't that good. He's a chucker who makes a lot of mistakes. Rubio or Jennings anyday.

But a point guard averaging 36 ppg in high school isn't a chucker. Right.

Flynn averages only 10 shots per game, making over 51% of them. Explain how he's a chucker.

Also, you really need to re-evaluate your ability to breakdown college hoops based on your opinion on what Brandon Jennings "would" have done at Arizona.

As was mentioned earlier, 30 point scorers in college are rare and it never pretty much happens within big time conferences and programs. So to suggest it would happen at Arizona, where guys that average 15 or more shots per game don't exist, is ridiculous. The fact that you also think Jennings would do it splitting time with Nic Wise at PG and shots with Chase Budinger and Jordan Hill just adds to the insanity.

Just checkin stats but..

Brandon Jennings is shooting 13% (4-29) from 3 this year. And that's not an NBA 3 either.

Rubio's 4.7 apg in 11 mpg are damn impressive, though only through 3 games.

Yes let's judge the handle ability of two players based on one player's AAU and high school highlights.

Flynn just finished the game with a sick windmill as time ran out. Young boy got ups.

Philly wouldn't even need a point guard if they had kept you know who.
