Ricky Rubio 6-4 PG Spain
Compared To: Steve Nash/Jason Williams
Analysis: Has tremendous ball handling and vision in the half court and in the full court. Can make the fundamental or flashy pass. Creates pass lanes by putting a spin on the ball, using wrap around passes, or difficult bounce passes. Is a much better defender than Nash, but has less range and consistency on his jump shot. His flashy passes are on the level of a Jason Williams or Magic Johnson. There really is no guard you can compare Rubio to because of his unique skill set, size, and talent.
Ty Lawson 5-11 PG North Carolina
Compared To: Chris Paul
Analysis: Lawson is blessed with tremendous speed and quickness. In 2008-2009 season Lawson improved his 3pt shooting and his become a liable threat from the 3pt line which opened lanes for himself and his teammates. Has solid vision and great ball handling skills. In the NCAA tournament Lawson proved to be the best player and leader of the nation's best team. Outside is lack of size there is no reason Ty Lawson will not become a Chris Paul like PG in the NBA for years to come.
Eric Maynor 6-4 Virginia Commonwealth
Compared To: Chauncey Billups/Sam Cassell
Analysis: Big PG with a great feel for the game. Has a solid jumpshot and has the ability to get into the lane and create shots for himself and teammates. Uses body well to asborb contact and draw fouls. Is not the fastest player, but Maynor uses his solid first step to get by defenders and holds them off using his 6-4 frame. Maynor is natural born leader and a clutch basketball player just as Cassell and Billups. Maynor attended a small school but is ready for big time games, as shown in tournament upset over the heavily favorited Duke Blue Devils.
