I agree. Davis is an incredible athelete for his size, and really can do it all. After Payton and Kidd, he's the guy that I'd want. He will learn how to better control a team as he gets more experience. What drove me nuts about Miller is that he obviously knows how to run a team right, but he simply chose not to do it in the WC's. Talk about pathetic...Originally posted by <b>Killuminati</b>!
Davis will be the best PG in a couple years easily. If you watched the playoffs you'd know what im talking about. He carried the Hornets without the aid of Mash. A triple-double pretty much every game for Baron (in the playoffs of course) It's hard to find any faults for a player who is only 23 years old and will only get better. Miller is very overrated in my book, he didnt look that good in the worlds and he took alot of shots (at least from what I saw). I thought he was a pass first PG?
i have to agree 100% about dre being overrated, i think he and mike bibby are the most overrated PG's todayOriginally posted by <b>blabla97</b>!
Gary Payton and Jason Kidd in their primes are very close. Payton is a better defender and scorer, but Jason dominates a game with his ability to control the tempo, and who gets the ball in every situation. Payton is a decent playmaker, but I wouldn't call him dominant. Both players are hall of famers, but they made names for themselves in different ways.
Anybody who thinks that any PG in today's league is better than Kidd needs to get a clue. Payton has lost his defensive dominance due to the recent rules changes that prevent physical contact on the perimeter, and Andre Miller is straight overrated. The only person who thinks Miller is better than Kidd is the one who knows that he has led the league in assists, but has never actually seen him play. The "Jason Kidd of the east" comparisons crack me up. People who say this make it obvious that they have no clue what makes Jason Kidd so good.
I will say this: replace Miller with Kidd on the national team, and the US wins the World Championships. His leadership by example and willingness to distribute the ball would have lit a spark in the US team, and driven us to victory. Miller was just another uninterested ballhog.
