I know your the admin and all but shouldnt this go in the college forum

RESPONSE: Might as well have the game threads in here, but I'll move them into the college forum for post-game discussion after the games

Why does John Wall get so much recognition, but when Rondo was the PG at UK, you rarely ever heard his name mentioned? I know he wasn't as big of a recruit and UK wasn't a top 3 team in the nation. Are those the primary reasons?

Their games seem to be somewhat similar. Wall is a better shooter, Rondo is a better rebounder and much craftier with the ball and his passing.

His team was an 8 seed in the tourney, that's a big reason why. Every time I watched a Rondo college game though they talked about how awful a free throw shooter he was for a guard, and then when you saw his Shaq-size hands you understood why.

LoL @ comparing 2 point guard for their rebound ability. Wall is a better shot blocker a better passer and a better scorer in UK than Rondo was.

Hence the recognition

Wall is one of the best draft prospects since LeBron. Nobody thought Rondo would be this good.

I never understand half the things you post. What are you laughing at? Comparing rebounding? Why is that not ok? Rondo is one of the best rebounding PGs in the league since he's been in the NBA.

If you're gonna laugh at me comparing rebounding numbers, I laugh at you comparing PG's shot blocking ability.

And Rondo and Wall are prolly equal when it comes to passing. ASIDE from the fact that Wall has never played in the NBA yet. He's not going to be as good as Evans or Rose....guaranteed.

Rondo wasnt as good as Wall. Rondo developed into the player he is today. And there is a limit to his upside in comparison to Wall's.
