The question wasn't about if he'd be a better rookie, but if he could be as good as Wall or Jennings eventually. At least that's how I read it. Besides, I really doubt Brandon Knight will get close to Wall's 16 and 8 with Stuckey there.

Right, so the question can be interpreted as whether Knight in his prime can be as good as rookie John Wall, and the answer is absolutely yes.

Whether he can be as good as prime Wall is another discussion. Wall hasn't even reached near his prime so it's all speculation at this point.

I'm sorry, but I think it's a stretch to say at this point Brandon Knight will be close to averaging something like 16 and 8. Those are really good numbers for a rookie point guard and it's not even clear if Knight will start.

Like I said, Knight averaging those numbers as a ROOKIE is a stretch, sure. But as a prime with multiple years of experience? Not a stretch at all. This guy averaged 17-4-4 as a freshman at Kentucky, very similar to Wall's in same school. Although it's probably worth mentioning Wall's game translates better in the NBA.

Then I still don't get your objection to me saying that it's highly, highly unlikely that Knight will ever be as good as Wall.

lol bit of exaggeration there? I never stated in such way.

I'm saying Wall is nowhere near his prime, so reaching or surpassing Wall's rookie year isn't that big of a deal, especially for Brandon Knight's caliber. I do think Wall will end up a better player, but I can definitely see Knight averaging +20 ppg later in his career.

No, I think Wall has the potential to be a perennial all-star. Knight doesn't appear to have the same ceiling.

This takes us back to what I originally said. Could Brandon Knight eventually be as good as Brandon Jennings? Sure. John Wall? My answer at this point would be no. I have no reason to believe that it's likely Brandon Knight will be be as good or better than John Wall.

Yeah, we clearly misinterpreted each other. When you say "good as John Wall" I'm referring to his CURRENT status, because anything beyond this point is pure speculation.

But if I had to guess, prime Knight will be better than rookie Wall, but inferior to prime Wall. There, I think that should clear it up.

He's having a solid rookie season. 13 ppg, 4 apg, and 4 apg in 33 mpg. I think he will be as good as Prime Chauncey Billups. He has a better rookie season than Mr. Big Shot.

Good pick by the Pistons. Detroit will be a playoffs team in less than 2 years.
