2008 Draft Profile - Derrick Rose

The Best PG in the world not in the NBA? He does everything well and is leading a veteran team in Memphis in just his first year. This kid has 'Super Star' written all over him. The best PG prospect since Chris Paul/Deron Williams, and could easily go 1st overall depending on team needs. Rose would be a GREAT fit with Durant and Green in Seattle.

Draft Profile provided by: Brian Mazique - Explosive first step and 2nd gear to blow by opponents, superior upper body strength allows him to use his body to absorb contact while driving to the basket and taking bumps off the dribble. Possesses great poise, I strongly believe that in the championship game, Douglas-Roberts was mentally and physically exhausted and Rose was a better go to option at that time. He is an above average on ball defender, the nights where he doesn't have a decided advantage on the opposing point guard will be few and far between. He is part Jason Kidd, part Dwyane Wade, potentially better scorer than Kidd, not as explosive offensively as Wade, but a better floor general and distributor. Lacks dependable jumpshot, but does show the penchant for hitting big shots. Barring injury will be top 3 point guards in NBA for next 10 years.
