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

none of the college/european point guards impress me that much. i think it's a pretty overrated group. i wouldn't consider any one of them a franchise player and i wouldn't want my team built around any of them either.

Like I said how many point guards are successful and 6'5''+???

You act as if being 6'5 is a disadvantage for him.

Sure it helps significantly when seeing the field, but a majority of these tall point guards aren't quick nor fast enough to guard the NBA points. They have to fall off trying to guard SG position opening a need for an undersized shooting guard. Calathes is both these things, while Rubio is so weak everyone out side of Steve Nash would bully him.

Yeah well of course there are things he has to work on such as getting stronger, but so does Flynn.

"Barcelona, Spain Trip & Euro League Game
Friday, December 12th, 2008

Hey wasup everybody - We just got back from Barcelona, Spain, where we had a huge Euro League game. It was a great trip overall. The food and city are amazing. We got to Spain around 7pm Wed night. As soon as we checked into the hotel we had a team meeting and team dinner. I then bounced to do a few media requests with Ricky Rubio. I was able to spend a few hours with Ricky, he was really cool, he speaks English very well. Just like me he has a ton of energy and loves playing the game of basketball. He showed up to the media blitz with his Mom and Dad, he has really nice parents. We talked for a few minutes. It was funny because I was signing my Jersey for someone and Ricky says to me “You are left handed”. It was funny because he was already sizing me up for the game. What I noticed is that Ricky also writes with his left hand but plays the game right handed, he must have a pretty good left? All and all I was really happy to meet Ricky and look forward to being his friend for many years to come.

Now to what everyone wants to hear about, the game and the matchup with Ricky. Unfortunately Ricky only played about 8mins cause he’s still kind of hurt from a wrist injury he suffered in the Gold Medal game vs. Team USA, but in just 8mins he showed me a lot. I have a ton of respect for the dude. He’s real mature out there on the court, he has a great feel for the game. He passes the ball like crazy, reminds me of Steve Nash a little bit. Put it like this if he were in the class of 09 in high school basketball he would be the #1 player hands down. No question about it. I can only hope that when Ricky and I one day get to the NBA we can be like Chris Paul and Deron Williams, as our careers take off together like CP3 & D Will’s did. Despite what the critics say that he can’t shoot Ricky is going to be going a Great NBA player someday…he brings a complete game to the table."

This dude can formulate sentences, but he gets a score on the SAT that makes him ineligible...

Brandon Jennings first score was ineligible. Jennings second score, which he passed) wasn't counted because people in the NCAA office decided the jump in score was "too dramatic". Jennings was forced to take a third test under NCAA supervisor. Jennings took the test. When his results got delayed Jennings said "screw it" and went overseas.

So he never got his last results?

Seems to be working out for him though, considering he is making money and still has a high draft stock...

Nope. The results from the last test got delayed. Considering there hasn't been a leak of the results from the NCAA offices I assume Jennings it.

On top of him being taller at 6'6, he is a better playmaker and better shooter. Flynn is more athletic and quicker, but if we're talking better NBA point guard prospect, Calathes wins.
Calathes = Kirk Hinrich

And I hate his brother.

Please he doesn't have Hinrich's tenacity on defense or vision. Remember before his slump (terrible coaching imho) Hinrich was looking to be one of the best pure points in the league.

I didn't mean he was as good, I meant as far as offensive playing style.

2nd round to undrafted. He's down there because he's a big forward in a 6'4" man's body.


By the way, Jonny Flynn had 15 pts, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds today. His steal/mins aren't in the boxscore yet so I'll edit them in when I find out.

I'll post the highlights too.
