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).

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.

Holiday is overrated as all Hell.

Lillard has far more upside.

Holiday better than Westbrook? LMFAOOOOOO!

Sorry but he is not even a top 10 PG at the moment, he is a good defender, but he isn't some gary payton shutdown defender, and offensively, he is averaging 18 pts at 54% ts with 8,8 asts and 5 TOs ...
That's above average production, but that's certainly not all-star production.

in Jrue's defense, Brand Jennings would have dropped 30+ points on ANYONE when he's on like that.

he's in the 10-15 range. That's not a slight the league is just full of quality pg's right now. At 22 so much room to grow. I seem him as a better version of Billups when he hits his prime

The issue isn't where he ranks now, but what he could become. He's as quick or maybe even quicker than any guard in the league. He's not there yet, but the potential is there.

Barring injury, he and Turner could be the best backcourt in the NBA two years from now.

WOW Holiday just played some Gary Payton type defense on Irving. Crowd acting like they just saw a sick dunk or something.

I'm a Sixers fans and to me it looked like the crowd was hyped because they were going at it. It was pretty good defense, sure, but Irving's lack of control was what caused the miss. He was able to penetrate somewhat.

It was a good defensive performance by Holiday tonight. He just needs to take better care of the ball and I'll consider him top ten.

Impressive. Holiday completely shut down Irving.
