yeah, selby. i dont see anything wrong with including him in this comparison. dont act like he has no talent. he wasnt rated the #1 player in his class by some services for no reason. did he underachieve in college? yes, but he also had to start his season late because of suspension on a top team that hit the ground running and also happened to be deep in the backcourt. he actually played pretty well for a stretch until he got injured and then he played the rest of the year with the injury.
he happens to be the most physically gifted in terms of athleticism and he has the most complete offensive game of the 3. all 3 are in a position to get minutes, including selby, who is expected to take the minutes that mayo left behind.

Beal...easily.

I'll only take Selby over Dion because Waiters has looked awful and like he has a bad attitude but wouldn't surprise me if over his career he matures and becomes better than Selby as well.

Selby is a better shooter than Beal, a better athlete and has much better one on one ability. The only reason would be length but Beal is mediocre at that too with a blah wingspan

You are wrong on all accounts.
selby's jumper is better than the other 2. Selby is the best athlete out of the bunch and has the quickest first step.

Beal is a better athlete than Selby. Just look at Beal's body... Way stronger, as quick as him running the open floor, pretty good vertical...

You are the one who is wrong here

uh, no. just look at the way they move on the court. selby is quicker and more explosive with or without the ball.

Diasagree, Selby is quicker with the ball because of his handles, but they are about the same speed without the ball, and the proof is their 3/4 sprint time from the combine. And like I said speed/quickness isn't the only thing in the athletic department

yeah, his speed with the ball, running the wing in the open floor, his explosiveness in terms of first step, exploding off the floor, his body control and ability to change direction, etc.
i don't think it's even debatable. selby is a tremendous athlete. beal is average to slightly below average.
combine results are hardly "proof".

Some of you guys have to be joking. Beal is an average athlete for a guard. Selby is near elite. I'm not calling him elite yet because I have to see more of him in league play before saying he is. Injury and coaching is what killed his draft stock. Looking at Selby's skills you its not a stretch to say that he's in the same class talent wise as Beal. What keeps him back is the shooting and bbiq. As a ballhandler, slasher and creating space he's better than Beal.

Charsace have you been paying attention? Selbys jumper is on another level. I would even say that his jumper is closer to being elite than his athletic ability.

Not to mention he and Eric Gordon are the same height.

Yup, there are always going to be people who will never get that SL games mean virtually nothing.

Not exactly. College ball is a lot more organized where the team has a unified goal to win whereas SL is a place where scrubs are out to accomplish their own agendas.
