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

agreed

Gay is Jared Jefferies with an awesome vertical.

I appreciate your comeback, but honestly Jared Jeffries was a great college player who was unable to transfer into the NBA mentally.

He'z a one of a kind passive guy.

Rudy is a MUCH more dependable scorer because he has a wide array of moves including an interior hookshot and he'z pretty aggressive when he gets inside.

Jeffries shows signs of brilliance, but his inconfidence causes him to brick layups VERY often.

i can see where your comparing gay and jefferies but when gay developes a shot, at his best potential we'll be comparing him to tracy mcgrady in a few years

Gay is passive also, Jefferies led his team to the Championship game he showed more aggression in my view than Gay at the same age, Gay is the same player with up explosion (up's)

gay will pull a "charlie V" and defy his chritics excpet on a larger scale than villaneuava

slate him all you like, but most of last year he was the clear cut #1 choice for the draft and theres obviously a reason why hes still floating round top 4-5

Rudy Gay impression? Next Pippen at best?

What kind of question is that?

I might be reading this wrong but when I read "Next Pippen at best?" doesn't that mean that he might "only" be as good as Scottie Pippen?

So his ceiling is Scottie Pippen? Only Scottie Pippen? Top-20-Player-Ever Scottie Pippen?

If Rudy Gay turns into "Scottie Pippen" at best then whatever team drafts him will have made an incredible pick.

When he played there was always a vocal minority that thought he was as good as MJ. His problem was his perceived lack of maturity at times (i.e. not entering a game when the final shot was called for Kucok instead of him) and choking at the end of big games. I guess if it helps think of a 6'7-6'8 KG.
I agree with most of this, except the "no real weaknesses" part. Scottie's main weakness was his ugly, inconsistent shot (flat as a pancake). Because his shots always came at the basketball on a straight line they tended to kick hard off the rim. He rarely got the benefit of a "shooters-touch" roll. With a better shooting form his fg % and scoring would certainly have been higher.

But they can't shoot.

Gay has a fine shot. It isn't anything beyond, but it certainly not a bad shooter.

He looks to me like a more skilled Josh Smith, maybe its just the high socks though.

Rudy is definitely "thicker" than Jefferies is/was/will ever be and is much more suited for taking contact in the lane and finishing in traffic. Not saying he will necesarrily, but the potential is there, were it never even existed for Jefferie's skinny body.
