I remember hearing that too, but at barber shops I swear I've heard people claiming him to be even greater than Jordan. I think a few old-timers from ISH have said the same thing. Pip was the truth, unfortunatley his prime was only about 8-9 years

Gay is a little bigger that Pippen was, while still sporting a similar athletic level. I doubt there is such a difference between them, that you could say one's definitely the more athletic of them. I dont think he'll be even close to Pippen level ever, but he might have a tiny little chance to be that. So Draftexpress sying this a optimum output possible by Gay, I guess they're kinda right.

Wow, Gay is so overrated, it's not even funny.

He won't be anything special. Book it.

If he gets to half the player pippen was then he should be happy. On a side note i think pippen is one fo the few perimeter players taht even loki would haev to say can dominate the game just as much on defense then on offence.

acording nbadraft.net he is

NBA Comparison: Scottie Pippen

Strengths: Run and jump athlete who finishes well above the rim ... High flyer ... Very versatile... Does everything well ... Complete offensive arsenal... Can hit the mid range jumper... Excellent at slashing to the hoop... Accurate passer who is very unselfish... Does the majority of his damage in the post ... Very strong and stays active throughout the game ... Very tough to defend... Doesn’t get pushed around down low ... Runs the floor well ... Tough on the boards... Has a passion for the game ... Works harder than everyone else on the court ... A coach’s dream player ... Will most likely play on the wing at the next level ... Has great potential.

Weaknesses: Ball handling could stand to improve ... Must gain maturity ... Develop physically ... His glaring weaknesses are his inexperience and his handle. His handle has improved dramatically but learning that phase late has slowed him moderately ... He will be star with some college seasoning ... He has only really been coached for a year and a half now so if UConn can get 2 years out of him he will be one of the baddest things to come out of college since Tim Duncan ...

Nah, you're right KD. Pippen was a freak. Anyone saying Gay will be clearly more athletic than Pippen is probably just plain wrong.

Gay has done absolutly nothing, D.Brown made all the big shots for U.Conn.
Gay has out done anything. He is more like Jared Jefferies.

Default calm down

Guys clam down I think the OP was referring to the plain attribute of athleticism when comparing the two.

However, athletically I believe they are about the same though Scottie has both more body control and footspeed.

Rudy has slightly better hops and if i'm not mistaken he'z a bit stronger physically.



I'm a Uconn fan at the collegiate level and I've experienced watching Rudy at least 30+ times throughout his first two years, and believe me he's not going to be NEARLY as good as Pippen.

Still going to be a solid pro, a poor man's combination of Tayshaun/Lewis/Butler/GeraldWallace/Pippen/MarvinWilliams/JumaineJones.
Producing 19/6/3/1.5/1.5 throughout his career, (optimistic)

But the knocking on his mental attitude is ridiculous. Yes we know he'z soft but the mental aspect of a player ISNT EVERYTHING as idiots like geewhiz have claimed. IMO that's not as much of an issue as his overall skill. Rudy's midrange game is suspect at times and his ballhandling, which should be the main forms of criticism, not his competitive desire. Plus anyone who thinks he's a lazy guy is clearly mistaken. His work ethic is one of the tops in all of college and you could see the steady improvement throughout his college career, plus he TRIES on defense and hustles (sometimes.)

No, Rudy's got an outside game, he'z versatile and a pretty solid passer. Not going to be classified as a top 5 worst starter in the league.

Honestly you guys should watch more CBB, it's entertaining.

I enjoy reading posts from GOBB, fatboy, and theGame when it comes to critiquing rookies because at least they got some credibility.

You trolls don't even know anything about the hottest college prospects so i would advise the classic STFU, ok.

I've been watching Gay since Arch. Bisp. Spalding.
I believe I know his game quite well actually, Jefferies made college 3 point range also when he was at IU, He is long like Jefferies with that huge wingspan he can play 2,3 or 4 like Jefferies can he has a awesome vertical and he is a great finisher and passer, however he is not assertive just like Jefferies, i'm secondfiddle another poster nice guy alter ego, therefore I will not attack you, however I will remember your user name and get at you when I return as my normal self.

I guess Rudy just seems more athletic because he seems more explosive. Scottie was just so smooth that he didn't look like a super athlete.

At any rate, athleticism is about the only thing that Rudy has that is even close to Pippen's level.
