I haven't read any post about Wall being better than Jennings. I have, however, read posts about Rubio still being the top PG of this draft, and better than Jennings.

I'll watch parts of the games later on tonight (league pass archive), haven't seen him play at all actually. But I don't care how good he is, this type of hysteria is ridiculous 8 games into his career (bucks going to be a solid playoff team, jennings best scorer since Kobe etc etc). Charlie V also had back to back 25+/12+ games in the first couple of weeks of his rookie season. Remember watching the 48 point game and thinking he was going to be a star...turned into a dud though. I think this is just a hot stretch Jennings is having to start his NBA career, didn't just magically go from an average player in Europe to all-star in NBA.

If I just scored 55 points, that included a 29 point quarter...I'd probably think I'm better than a prime Jordan.

It's like comparing iverson with kidd.
No its not, although Jennings is an explosive scorer, he's also a great passer, don't get these Iverson comparisons at all.

So how did AI get assists? I get it, his shot wasnt there so he passed it and luckily the time he passed it the guy scored. No playmaking ability for AI. Gotcha. Whether B.Jennings is AI or not? Who knows. But dont act like AI wasnt a damn good passer. Trying to figure out how this kid 8gms in his NBA career was a better passer than AI. That I dont get.

"I have much respect for the dude. We did a photo shoot together for Slam Magazine, so I got to know him off the court. He's a real good guy."

So maybe you should take it back too.

We'll never really know how well Rubio's game will translate to the NBA. But I've seen some of his games and let me tell you, his court vision is up there. He's definitely a better PG than Jennings, while I think Jennings might be the better player. If he develops a jumpshot like Brandon does, he could be one of the best in the league.

He seems to be a better player than Rubio judging from the recent three games.

Wonder what Rubio thinks of Jennings now that he's the better PG.
