Devin Harris On Path To Be Top-Five Point Guard?
Would you guys agree or disagree with Cuban? :confused:

I dont know, havent watched him play enough, but he looks pretty good, thats why I prefer I future all-star PgG, to a guy that is at the end of his career.

His shooting is greatly improved, awesome D, but I'm not sold on his decision making, although I can't say I've watched him enough to really say. I rarely watch Dallas since they let Nash walk away for nothing. What were they thinking?

Here's something to ponder though, he's the same age as TJ. For some reason I thought he was younger than that.

Hes more like Parker than he is Deron Paul or Nash. His pullup game is still lacking, as is his drive and kick game, but hes nearly impossible to stop going to the rim and he gets open shots because teams play off of him because of his speed(like Parker).

It's amazing watching Parker and Harris and then watching Monta Ellis who is both of them plus an amazing midrange shot. Imagine if any of them developed their PG skills and got near the top PG's with the vision and passing as well.

i would of laughed at this but i decided to look into his statline.
sure he plays on an uptempo team and is like the 4th option on the floor (therefore not receiving much pressure, and benifiting from his teamates getting doubled), but his stats are VERY impressive.
14/5 (shooting 50%) in his first full year as starting PG on a very good team - all in his 4th year playing in the NBA - is quite good.

then you have his speed, good footwork (especially on D) can attack the rim very well.
he may be one of the better PG's in the next few years.
i can see him putting up 19/9, three years down the road.
his only drawback is that he seems small on the court... but he makes up for it in intensity.

Rondo>Harris. Better at everything except MAYBE defence.
