    meh... decent... but i'm getting sick of these experts automatically giving a player an elite status on how hard they dunk...

    I'm pumped to watch this new Clippers team this season.

    G'mo... was it you that was telling me PGs are a dime a dozen?


    This Clippers team looks like a totally different squad with CP3 out there.



    Wish the Lakers could somehow buy Brandon Jennings. But Stern would just jump in to swat it away for his Miami Heat.

    They are though, the list of good PG's goes on and on, a lot of teams even have 2 good PG's, like NFL teams do with running backs. But there's a fine line between having a good PG and having arguably the best PG in the game (though I personally have CP3 ranked 3rd, just a notch behind D-Will and Rose).

    Yes, I did just put D-Will in front of Rose... for now at least.

    Griffin needs to tone it down come postseason though, we all know when he's sh*tting on the Lakers in the first round, Barnes and Bynum will try to hurt him. First preseason game and Barnes already couldn't, at least classy Bynum waits until the regular season before sending people to the hospital :moon2:

    Please. No one is worried about anything Clippers in the "postseason" lol.


    And D-Williams over Rose OR CP3 is ludicrous. Or Nash, for that matter. But after that core group... the PG spot drops off dramatically.

    I'd take Brandon Jennings over every one besides those 3. Soon the world will know...

    Please son, I know you're worried. ;)

    Ludicrous? D-Will is CP3, except D-Will creates more match up problems. Nash is too old to play defense (you know, other half of the game), and I'm not disrespecting D-Rose, he's a special player, but for now, the only thing he does better than D-Will is score.

    Jennings over D-Will? LOL LOL LOL LOL, a less talented Steve Francis? No thanks.

    Elite - Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, Chris Paul

    Very good - Russel Westbrook (will go in the elite list once he realizes it's Durant's team), Ranjo Rondo, Steve Nash, Stephen Curry, John Wall

    Good - Tony Parker, Kyle Lowry, Brandon Jennings, Devin Harris and so on...

    Russel Westbrook sucks. Also imo you should have Rondo in the elite category.

    Rondo sucks. :) Any PG on that team would look good thanks to the spreading of the floor created by the 3.


    I can't place Stephen' Curry's name with those other guys. I like him, but don't really even view him as a PG.

    Rose is a better baller all around than Derron Williams outside of passing though. He's a scoring PG while D-Will is a passing PG though... and I'll take a scoring PG every time. Personal preference.

    Ha! HAHAHA!

    Rondo dishes the ball to three future hall of famers and can't knock down a jump shot or free throw to save his life. I don't know how many layups I've seen the guy miss. He gets a dozen rebounds because no one guards him and he has a free line to the basket when everyone's backs are turned trying to track the ball.

    I'll give him his due when it comes to defense, but the guy is a one trick pony.
