"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.

lets see...

Johnny flynn undersized pg who will struggle on defense
Jrue Holiday - not really a pg and has spotty shot and not great handle
Ty Lawson - with 1/4 of Rubio bball IQ and court sense
Step Curry - is a pure scorer and not a point
Jennings - who im a fan of but has not done enough to call someone out after this year.

In a 5 on 5 game Rubio is better then any one of them by a large margin...Basketball isnt the 2 on 2 drills done at these workouts...And even so Rubio would put the clamps on a lot of them

If you look at the lines of questions what happen was a young player getting schooled by reporters, they feed him leading questions and he just went right along

Q: How did he (Rubio) do and how would he do to compare to the other guys in college now?

A: "Well when I was playing he only zero assists and two turnovers, you know you tell me how that was."

Q: How many minutes was he (Rubio) playing?

A: "We had about even minutes, I had 12 points, about six assists, that was the most I ever played was 30 minutes. I was a little winded but I still think I got the best of him."

Q: How would he compare to the college freshman for example?

A: "Well put it like this, if he was in a workout with me, Jonny Flynn, Drew Holiday, (Ty) Lawson, and Stephen Curry he wouldn't even be at the top."

Q: Do you think he's all hype?

A: "Yeah because he played in the Olympics, been playing pro ball since 14, you know there it is right there. His stats you know 26 minutes, having 16 points, seven assists, nine steals in 26 minutes, and you have all that? You know, I really don't know, I can't wait to play him though."

Anyone who thinks Rubio is going to be better than guys like Deron Williams, Cp3, and Billups need their head examined.

Be prepared to hear these statements for a long time, Jennings is pretty much going to be the new Stephon Marbury.

Their skill sets are so damn alike and their attitudes are so damn alike it makes me wonder how great this really is.
