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.

And Williams, Curry, Rondo, Lawson, and Irving. The others may be arguable, but there's no way you can rank him above those 5.

He'll always be better than Liliard for his defense IMO. I think Holiday will be a perennial all star, but not a superstar.

Experience means much more than age does.

I think Holiday is always going to be one of those guys who puts up very solid stats but isn't flashy or known enough to make all star games.

He will probably hover around just outside the top 5 PG's at during his prime.

And since the league is pg heavy right now, that means he can be a top 25 player still. Or maybe even top 20.

All these guards in the NBA can score. Let's see him share the ball a bit better. Top 15 IMO currently and depending on your flavor he will linger between 8 and 15 for his career.
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

Numbers don't lie, people who use them do

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.

Not sure about top ten

I'd rather have...

Paul
Rose
Westbrook extremely low BBIQ
Parker
Williams
Nash old, no defense
Conley no offense, no playmaking ability
Curry no defense, injury prone, no playmaking
Rondo
Lawson small, liabilty other than scoring
Irving
Rubio no offense

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.


I take Holiday over the bolded. Holiday is decent at everything. A bunch of PGs you listed have a bunch of glaring flaws that is easily exploited.

Rubio has no offense? :lol: :lol:

Holiday is better than Westbrook seriously?

Yeah, I'm not taking Holiday over Westbrook.

I put him in the same class as Rubio and Lawson.

While they're not the same body type, I'm saying Mike Bibby in terms of style of play. And I think it's a struggle for Holiday to make the ASG considering the quality at the position. He's clearly outside the top 4 in his own conference (Rose, Irving, Rondo, Williams).
The 2015 Chicago Bulls live and die with Derrick Rose's production and health.

Have you seen what Brandon Jennings did to him last night? 33 pts, 8 asst, 5 reb, 4 stl, 2 bl on 57%. IN JRUE's HOUSE. Sorry, I'm not seeing what you guys are seeing. Last year at least he was a terrible shooter but a good defender. Now he just wants to get his.

Better than Westbrook? GTFO. NOW.
