He's solidified himself now as a top ten PG in the league, IMO.

As for the future, like you said he is still young, so I can see him making several all star games over the course of his career. The future looks bright for this young pup.

He probably will never be among the Roses, the Westbrooks, D-Wills, Pauls, or Rondos of the world, but he'll be a solid starter and maybe make some All-Star games based on the Sixers' success in coming years

Yes a few all star games. Maybe one or two all nba depending on the situation.

I actually might have to agree with this.

i think jrue has better playmaking ability than prime chauncey. he's just one of those players who looks like he sees the game in slow motion. he's had some TO problems to start the season, but i think a few of those are a result of him seeing plays develop at a different speed than his teammates.

people just looked at his assist averages for his career and say that he's not a good passer or he's a shoot first guy, but jrue has always shown an advanced ability to anticipate plays.

Not sure about top ten

I'd rather have...

Paul
Rose
Westbrook
Parker
Williams
Nash
Conley
Curry
Rondo
Lawson
Irving
Rubio

I think right not Holiday is a solid starter on par with Hill, Jennings, Teague, Collison (Lin and Wall are wild cards)... obviously he's younger that a lot of these guys.

I think Holiday WILL be a solid top 10 PG, but right now he's more in the 10-20 range.

All-star for many years. All the hype surround Lillard but Jrue is the same age and lead his team to multiple playoff appearances.

Jrue is 22 years old and is averaging 19/10.5/4rpg while being one of the best defending PG in the league at 6'4 and you'd take Lawson, Conley, Curry and Rubio over him? Easily no but certainly debatable.

No Andrew Bynum right now either. Expect Jrue's assists to go up once he and Jason Richardson come back.

He's been tearing it up as expected, as a fantasy owner though he's absolutely destroying me on TOs. Gotta do a better job holding on to the ball

Why are you mentioning Lillard? He is a rookie. And for the past few seasons Philly has been Iggy's team.
Portland:

D. Lillard | S. Blake
W. Matthews | W. Barton | C. McCollum | A. Crabbe
N. Batum | D. Wright | V. Claver
L. Aldridge | T. Robinson
R. Lopez | C. Kaman | J. Freeland | M. Leonard

I think he means when comparing them as prospects as Jrue is only 21-22.

He is a top 5 point guard. Only dudes above him for sure are Chris Paul, Westbrook, Rose, and Parker.

He turns the ball over way too much to be a top 5 PG(and no, not every one of his turnovers is the result of seeing plays develop differently than teammates). His handle isn't as tight as it could be, he gets caught passing in the air too much, and gets stripped on traffic too often. Still, he's a really nice prospect, he's just not as good as the sixers fans tend to think he is right now.
