I don't think Derrick will ever be double-digit assist playmaker those guys are, but none of them have his ceiling as an unstoppable offensive player, either.
I think he's developing more into a Dwayne Wade-like scoring lead guard than a pure point like Deron or CP3, and with Kobe on the downside of his career and Wade going to be 30 soon- with his injury history- I think DRose could be the best guard in the league, period, within 3-4 years. Point guard or otherwise.

And as much as I'm biased as a Bulls fan, I'm even more biased for Deron as an Illini fan. Derrick's playmaking abilities will be greatly enhanced by having an All-Star power forward and he's going to become a very good defender.

No, he's not. He's definitely unrefined, but he's not awful. How many 21-year old point guards are awesome defenders, in the first place? Deron, CP3 and Wade (I know, not a point guard, but someone you can compare Derrick to in terms of style of play) weren't very good defenders early in their careers either, and they all came into the league older than Rose.

With Tom Thibodeau as his coach, I'll be a little surprised if Rose doesn't become one of the best on-ball defenders in the league within a couple years.

Call me when Nash deserved those trophies.

And call me when Rose plays with three Hall of Famers. Rondo was the fourth-best player on the 2008 Celtics. And while you could rightly call him the best player on the 2010 Celts, he was still playing with three great- albeit slightly older- veterans that kept him from having to shoulder anywhere near the same load that Rose shouldered in 2010. Call me when Rondo can average 27 points per game in the playoffs against a 61-win team with the league's best player guarding him at times.

And that last part is why is it's not crazy to think Rose will be the league's best point guard, or best guard, period, within a couple of years: he's a big-time player who, at ages 20 and 21, had phenomenal playoff series against 60+ win, outstanding defensive teams in his first two seasons. As he continues to add range on his jumper- he's already an above-average 16-20 foot shooter- he'll be totally unstoppable.

Offensively he'll probably be top 3 next season imo, he was great in the playoffs and he'll continue to get better.
Like someone else said, his defense is average, but I have no doubt that he'll work on it and get better at it.
He's also a beast @ getting to the rim.
