Default 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:

PPG- 14.9

# of games with 20 or more points- 8

# of games with less than 10 points- 11

APG- 4.7

# 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

FG%- 47.7

FT%- 71.2

3P%- 33.7

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.
