    Agreed.

    Those guys on other teams would be beneath Jrue. I think he would be seventh if just individual skills were taken into account. Not bad since we're talk guards as a whole.

    I also agree with Mythrol I'm that he would be top three if people factored in D.

    Such a weird league, nowadays. Defense and other auxiliary stats get little love. Ben Wallace would just be considered a filler piece.

    This is all opinion but, I think people are taking Jrue's defense into account when ranking him outside of the top 10 (such as the case with the OPs rankings). The current NBA wants scorers, Mark Jackson said as much a few days ago in a game he was calling. You need a guy who can score at will more than you need a guy who can play lock down defense. Jrue has been playing great ball this season, but the guys who are considered better than him are considered better because their offense alone is so much better than Jrue's combination of offense and defense.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    pissed me off hearing espn today on that bball show say AD has no one else and they wont go far. Jrue deserves more respect than that, he's being playing great.

    Me personally I would take all except John wall just because he plays the same position as jrue and even then depending on the SG or SF I might be tempted to take wall
