Was Rose Worth the 1st Pick?
You know, the closer I look at Derrick Rose's stats, the less I think he deserved being drafted first. Here are some stats that I found interesting:
# of games with 20 or more points- 8
# of games with less than 10 points- 11
# of games with 10 or more assists- 2
# of games with 5 or less assists- 26
# of games with 5 or more turnovers- 6
Assist-to-turnover ratio- 1.74
And these stats were on a schedule that featured 26 games against second-rate teams, including both tournaments. To me, these stats do not indicate a first-rate point guard. Hell, if there were more good point guards in the draft I might not even consider taking him in the first round. I can't figure out who the genius was that decided that he was to be the first pick, but all that I have to say to him is retire now, before everyone realizes that Derrick Rose was never worth the first pick.
