Haven't seen enough of either to give a truly accurate player evaluation but....

Seems to be a matter of preference between the two. If you like the Kobe Bryant-type of player you go with Young. If you like the Dwyane Wade-type of player you go with Stuckey.

Please note that I said type. I did not say Young or Stuckey would be as good as either of those guys.

I thought they were both two of the most overrated players drafted in the first round, but I could be wrong. I've seen Young play quite a lot and he didn't convince me. But then again how people play iin college doesn't have that much to do with how they'll do in NBA.

My problem with Stuckey was (is) that he is an undersized sg who played against very weak competition. If he can play pg in the NBA he might succeed, but I doubt it.

Chauncey Billups was an undersized SG when he came in. But he showed nowhere near the intensity Stuckey does bringing it to the hoop.

Stuckey will be developed at PG from what I can tell so far. Its good he has guys like Chauncey and Lindsey Hunter to help him along the way.

A lot of people think that Stuckey will be a top 5 player from this draft. He's a 6'5 combo guard. He can run the point pretty well and he has good size for a SG. Stuckey's my bet.

6'5" isn't too undersized for a SG, especially one that will rely on penetration as opposed to trying to get his shot off against taller defender. THe question will be who can he guard.

Billups played in a good conference and had faced some good competition. And even though he scored a lot and didn't get that many assists in college, he was more of a pg than Stuckey is.

Stuckey could be big enough to play sg. He was taller than I expected in pre draft measurements. 6'3.75 without shoes, 6'4.5 with shoes.

I'm not saying Stuckey won't be good, just that there are lots of unknowns. He played only against two decent teams last year, and only 4 minutes in one of those games.

I trust Joe Dumars.

Take it with a grain of salt, but apparently an unusually large amount of GMs have been complimenting Joe on Rodney and Amir after they got to see them in action during the summer. ESPN Magazine even did a piece praising Amir.

Obviously I'm excited and have a subjective viewpoint so we'll see.

By the way Rodney is a solid 6'4 not 6'5.

Nick young will probably get more playing time because of the lack of depth on the wizards bench, but I think Stuckey is the better player from what I saw in summer league but I need to see them both play a significant amount of minutes before I stick to my judgement just yet...

The next Dwyane Wade in this years NBA Draft Class





Rodney " Rocketman" Stuckey, He will be one of the best SG in this years NBA Rookies. Base on what i have read and seen he is a D-Wade type of player that will surely make a quick impact in the aging Pistons roster. The Pistons will probably give him enough playing time in his rookie season and less than 2 years from now he might be replacing Chauncey Billups in the starting lineup for this team, who need to build their team around their young guns Amir Johnson, Jason Maxiell and Rodney Stuckey.

Rodney is a Tremendous scorer with excellent body strength … Has the ability to play both guard positions, with solid ball handling and passing ability, that he can use in creating some shoots for his teammates.

In Eastern Washington he prove that he is a guard that is very good at driving to the basket and creating some space. Overall, he Has a solid mid range game with a good pull up shot off the dribble

Sophomore Season in the NCAA

24.6 PPG | 5.5 APG | 4.7 RPG, | 2.4 SPG

Freshmen Season in the NCAA

24.2 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 4.1 APG, 2.2 SPG

2007 Summer League Stats

19.0 ppg, 46% fg, 4.0 rbpg, 2.6 APG

Quote:

Stuckey played college basketball at Eastern Washington University. As a sophomore, he averaged 24.6 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game. Against Portland State, he scored a season high 36 points. In his sophomore season, he had nine 30-point games and three 10 assist games. He had a career high 7 steals against Idaho.

In only two seasons, he scored 1,438 points, made 983 point field goals, collected 279 rebounds, dished out 283 assists, and collected 145 steals.

His favorite NBA player is Dwyane Wade and he wears number three in his honor.

I still think to this day that Chauncey plays more like a SG anyways. His passing has gotten better over the years, and he's shown good leadership, but he'll always be shoot first.

Young makes me really nervous. He has almost no playmaking ability at all, as evidenced by his having more TOs than assists, and while I know he measured well athletically, he never seemed to play all that athletically. His defensive numbers (steals and blocks) are not good, and those are things that good athletes usually excel in even if they're not good defenders. His rebound rate I remember not being bad though, which is usually the other athletic factor.

Stuckey's got a ton of unknowns about his mentality. Whenever you draft a guy that's playing that far ahead of his comp, I always wonder how he'll adjust. He took twice as money shots as the next highest guy on his team. More shots than the next two highest guys combined. He's got numbers that indicate some playmaking, but it's hard to tell what they mean because he's always got that ball. It's fair to say that there's not going to be a good NBA team where Rodney Stuckey's got the ball 75% time. So now you really have to project what he can do without it. I really liked him in the summer league, and he appears to play as athletically as he measures.

I'd rather take my chances with Stuckey at the moment.

i went to eastern washington university. stuckey came the year after i left but i am very familiar with the level of play in the big sky. It is a WEAK conference, so i hear all of your points that he didnt play against good competition. that being said... i am pretty sure that dumars watched him go up against other draft prospects before he took him with the 15th pick.
all this beign said. the guy can get to the hoop with ease and think he will be able to do the same in the pros. i expect him to average about 10 points a game. he will be a player that can give both billups and hamilton a rest. i wish he would ahve gone elswhere because i am not at all a piston fan, but will be a stuckey fan.


i would rather have stuckey
