Default Brandon Jennings thinks Rick Rubio is overhyped

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ennings.rubio/

Quote:
SACRAMENTO -- Highly touted draft prospect Brandon Jennings called Spanish sensation and potential No. 2 pick Ricky Rubio overhyped and not even the top point guard in the draft.

"Well, put it like this: If he was in a workout with me [and fellow point-guard prospects] Jonny Flynn, Jrue Holiday, Tywon Lawson, Stephen Curry, he wouldn't probably be at the top," Jennings said Friday.

Jennings made his comments after a workout for the Sacramento Kings that also included Syracuse's Flynn and UCLA's Holiday.

When asked if he thought Rubio, who has received great attention but has not worked out for NBA teams, is all hype, he said without hesitation, "Yes. Because he played in the Olympics, he's been playing pro ball since he was like 14. So there it is right there. ... I can't wait to play him, though, in summer league. I'm just letting you know that now. I can't wait.

Discuss.

PS: You happy now Jeff? I included FULL names

Jennings isn't really one to talk in this case. I saw Joventut vs Roma earlier this year and while Jennings and Rubio only were playing against each other for a few minutes, Ricky routinely took Jennings off the dribble and gave him hell on the defensive end.

Ricky has accomplished far more in a superior league than Jennings has.

I wonder if Jennings knows there is more to basketball than jumping high and dunking. Probably not which is why he rode the bench in Europe.

He's just pissed because he has no hype to begin with.

He's just upset that he couldn't even guard Rubio when he had a cast on his shooting hand and could only go in one direction. I'd be upset too if I got clowned like that.

Monta Ellis
Stephen Jackson
Corey Maggette
Andris Biedrins

Not saying I think Jennings will be a successful in the NBA, he might be he might not... but speaking strictly about Rubio, i do have that feeling he is just hype. I don't know, especially since he is going up so high in the draft, i just feel like its a bust waiting to happen...

I think Jennings opinion of himself is a bit too high.
