I'm going to ignore the fact that I do not consider Derrick Rose a PG and simply play along....

If you are going by just physical talent (ie. running, jumping, strength, etc) then Rose definitely has a strong case.

If you are talking physical skills plus basketball skills of a PG Rose is not even in the top 10 of the last 5 years worth of PG prospects (counting from potential '08 guys to '03 guys).

Exactly. He's a scoring guard who can control the game at the point at times.

He can create for his teammates purely because of his individual ability to get to the basket, not because he's Steve Nash or Jason Kidd out there.

Uh oh. Derrick Rose is currently an ISH favorite. You're about to be labeled a hater.

Same thing happened to me with Darko Milicic.

Same thing happened to hippos (and to a far lesser extent to me) with Kevin Durant.

My Kevin Durant prediction has been perfect too. Gobb should be a man and apologize. It was quite obvious he's be Adam Morrison on steroids in his first year.

It's relative though. I still love him and think he's the best pro prospect in the nation (although Beasley is close), but people have to see things for what they are. He's a great individual player. I've said already he's like Wade in that regard. But, he has to become a better long range shooter and if he wants to be a pg in the NBA, he has to think like one....which he doesn't and probably doesn't have the ability to at this moment.

I love D-Rose; watched him alot in Chicago.

But he isn't even the most talented PG ever in Chicago.


That honor goes to Isaiah Thomas.

Sounds similiar to me with Darko. Don't know if you guys rememeber but the projection for Darko was Hakeem Olajuwon. I was called a hater for saying he'd be Raef LaFrentz (Denver).

Are you sure those weren't upset LaFrentz fans?
