Default Gay vs Roy

With Morrison looking like a lock to go top 3, these two guys are expected to go in the 4-6 range. Although their skill sets are completely different, who do you believe will become the better NBA player?



interesting: in this picture, they look about the same hieght, but Roy is listed as 6'6 in shoes and gay is supposed to be around 6'9

Default Re: Roy vs. Gay

I take Roy....just seems Roy has more fire for the game...until Gay shows me he can consistently produce from his skillset he is less of a player then Roy. It's like Darius Miles has all the physical tools but is too inconsistent to ever amount to anything. Same things were being said when Miles was coming out.

roy is less risk

gay is more reward

roy will probably end up being as good as someone like cuttino mobley, maybe a little better

gay has the potential to be scottie pippen

Look at their shoulder levels. Gay is clearly higher, not to mention larger wing span.

if roy was quicker he'd be going #1 in this draft

Gay will be the more talented (and perhaps eventually better) player, but Roy will be far more likeable because he's got desire.

I'm pretty high on Rudy Gay and I think he clearly has alot more potential but as of now Roy is the more complete player and will have a bigger impact than Gay next season.
