    Without knowing who goes with what I liked E because it's a PG with good shot seletion (FG%, low attempts), good quality distribution (decent AST level, quality A/TO ratio), and has a killer PPS so he draws fouls and gets to the lane effectively.

    I see A and B as not playing a pure PG role because the points combined with FG% suggest calling their own number way too often, to the point that their shot selection hurt their FG%. B's FG% is really terrible considering his PPG/FG attempts.

    B also has a weaker A/TO. And then the high AST totals for them combined with FG%/PPG suggest that they simply touched the ball at all times and might not even be comfortable playing off the ball.

    C & D are the weakest options by this. No outside shot, D has a lower PPS, neither have solid A/TO ratios considering their lower AST numbers (less passing should mean less risky passes/TOs). But I put C above B because he doesn't call his number as often which implies that he knows his limits.

    I assume Count looked this up and has them paired right so that means I put them as:

    E - Lawson
    A - DJ
    C - Rose
    B - Singletary
    D - Westbrook


    Of course as Mr. Stats I've consistantly said that NCAA stats aren't that useful, certainly not as much as watching players. That's why I went out of my way to watch guys this year, I wanted to have a clue for once instead of not really knowing how I felt after draft night for certain.

    In this case I think Lawson is a product of a quality system and that while he has speed he hasn't shown NBA caliber handles. He has a "flat" dribble that to me looked like his hands were smaller, but maybe that's just his style.

    It's just different than Bayless or Rose yanking it around on a string. We all saw what happened to Saras without that next level of handles, despite his overall skill. A PG must be able to safely dribble out of a press and keep his dribble.
