Holiday does everything better than Jennings, and does most things MUCH better. He has this year anyway. This whole argument is about why Jennings doesn't have a case for the all-star game over Holiday or Irving. No case whatsoever. Those two have been the far superior players this season.
And it's not "8 games better" or "10 games better" like you keep saying. It's just 3 or 4 stinking games. Holiday is playing like prime Billups right now. He is easily that much better than Brandon. Jennings mails it in on a regular basis, so just get an equally talented player who actually comes to play every night and you'd easily see a 3-win improvement.
First of all, you have a massive bias against Jennings and always have and it clearly flows through in every one of your posts regarding him. That being said, I'll respond anyway.
Baddy Chuck said we could "easily be 10 games over .500" if we had Holiday right now. That means 25-14 or whatever, which is 4 games better through a half season, or 8 games through a full season.
I have already agreed Holiday is better this year. To argue he is that much better means he is one of the best players in the NBA. Which also means there is no chance Philly is 6 games under .500 with over a negative 4 ppg point differential.
These players aren't on "different tiers". Holiday is better this year, for career he's slightly ahead and the players are of comparable ages. But hey, by all means, lets keep letting the hyperbole fly.
