Question Which Young Point Guard Would You Rather Build Around?

Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans, Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings, or Russell Westbrook?

They are all very good talents with lots of potential. Its a very close call for me, but I'd say Rose. Why? Because hes got a little more experience and has been to the playoffs.

Which point guard would guys rather build a team around?

Tough one, but from what i've seen of Evans my vote goes to him. He's falt faster then Rose and look at the Body, 6'6 220lbs....crazy athletic.

rose, more explosive off the dribble. Evans defintely rookie of the year but long way to go.

Rose. Once the dude gets better teammates hes going to be near Lebron unstoppable.

Reke is awesome but you can put SGs on him to slow him down.

Rose. I think he's a better team player, better court vision.

don't really like Evans, especially as pg although he has size advantage there. Think he's a bit of a ballhog or potentially, idk maybe I'm wrong anyway I don't rule out that he'll be just as effective or as big a star as Rose. they're both hard to stop and still incredibly young

Evans is 3'' taller and 30lbs heavier and imo will end up being the better more durable PG, and once the Kings add a couple better teammates lookout. He's an 18/10/5 PG in the making.

Evans really isn't a PG though, he's more of a SG and that's where I see him making his home in the NBA.

Rose has better speed, awesome awareness both offensively and defensively as well.

Rose is better off the ball on offense than Evans and is a better passer
they are both fast and big for their position and aren't great on D
give the edge to Rose but he's been in the league longer

Alright, just to make it a bit more even, lets compare Rose's stats from last year to Evan's this year.

D-Rose:

16.8 PPG, 6.3 APG, 3.9 RPG, 0.82 SPG, 37 MPG

Tyreke Evans:

20.5 PPG, 5 APG, 4.7 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 36.7 MPG

Granted that Tyreke is on a crappier team so he gets more touches, where as Rose was on a playoff team, the stats are fairly similar.

The main difference is I see Rose as completely unstoppable on pick and roll plays when CHI finally gets him a good offensive big to work with, and even now since hes been healthy hes been putting up insane shooting games with all the D attracted to him and he beat teams on the road seemingly by himself on offence.

I dont see Evans as an unstoppable force. You can put taller physical players on him to slow him down, whereas with Rose you essentially have to just double him off pick and rolls and thats not really stopping him as itll result in a basket.

Maybe if Evans improves his shot a ton he can become like B Roy. Theres a lot of similarities there IMO.

Rose
Evans
Rondo
Jennings
Westbrook?

It's near impossible to asses Rondo's value too specifically when he's surrounded but other high caliber offensive talents. Rose is the initiator of most of the offence in Chicago (though you can barely call what they run in Chicago an offence). I have more hope for Rose to develop a steady jumper than I do Rondo and have more faith in him being a primary offensive option on a team I'm building.

Anyone advocating Jennings over Rose needs to look at Jennings game a lot closer.

Rondo with a midrange game, would make him the best pg... but he doesnt so he's overated imo

I can see Evans becoming more of a D wade player. Being tall, and big enough to be a SG, but with the quickness and passing ability of a PG.
