Default I don't think Rose is a top 5 player or the best PG in the game

Honestly...

Derrick Rose shooting in the ECF vs. Miami Heat


I feel that Chris Paul is still the best PG in the game and I can name 5+ players in the NBA that are better than Rose.

Dwight Howard
Dirk Nowitzki
Kevin Durant
LeBron James
Dwyane Wade
Chris Paul

are all better than Rose. I am sure there are more, but you get the point don't you?

An inch? He shot poorly the ENTIRE playoffs. It's not like we're just cherrypicking random games. Like, pass the ****ing ball. And yes, I'd rather have Deng, Korver, Booz, even Bogans shooting an open look than Rose and his contested 3s and driving into the paint with 3 dudes already there waiting.

Maybe if he were shooting like 45%, I'd feel differently, but 35%, that's worst than Iverson and Stackhouse, who are credited with inventing inefficient volume scoring.

And then 4th quarter play, disgusting. 17% from the field in 4th quarter and ot? MVP? Get outta here, and you go scoreless throughout an ot? Can only muster up 2 pts in the 4th?

Then there's the 6.25%FG against LeBron

I agree. I love Rose as a player, but I put him just outside the top 10. He's young, so he deserves somewhat of a pass for this playoff run. He's only going to get better.

Default Re: I don't think Rose is a top 5 player or the best PG in the game

Obviously he's not top 5...LeBron Howard Dirk Wade Durant Kobe, and arguably Chris Paul. I actually said right from the first (or maybe second round) that Chris Paul was better than Rose in my opinion. It's not an insult, just Paul is freaking amazing as a point guard. This has nothing to do with what happened in the previous round, because to be honest nothing that's happened has changed my opinion on him at all. We knew he was a special player but inexperienced and young, unlikely to lead a team to a championship.

For this year yes he was the best PG and a top 5 player but just in general Chris Paul and Deron Williams are just as good as him. Dwight Wade Dirk Lebron are top 4 that 5th spot could be anyone Durant Kobe Paul Melo or Rose.

He was the MVP, but not the best pg.

CP3, Deron, and Rondo were better pg's this season.

Um no he was better than Rondo and Deron, but he wasn't better than Nash or Paul. Rose is at best the second best PG in the game.

Not really sure who is better between Rose and Melo. I am leaning towards Melo there.

Default Re: I don't think Rose is a top 5 player or the best PG in the game

call me when CP gets out of the first round without the best shooter in NBA history, Tyson Chandler (leading the Dallas defense to the finals), and David West. OR gets out of the second round at all.

Don't even talk about Nash the guy is decent but old and might as well be cherry-picking all game given his defensive prowess.

Deron is the only one I say is better than Rose when he's healthy but then again he's better than most PG's to ever play the game so that's not exactly an insult
