A fan of various sports and leagues, I support the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, Lakers, and Sixers fan. In college sports I support the Penn State Nittany Lions. I aspire to one day become a sports journalist. Bill Simmons, Tom Verducci, Mitch Lawrence, Jayson Stark, Peter Vecsey, Ian O'Connor, and Ric Bucher are my favorite writers. Teams I choose not to support include Duke Basketball, the New York Yankees, the New York Mets, Boston Celtics, and the Dallas Cowboys. Despite my fandom, I attempt to disregard any biases and make an effort to write objectively.

    Can u please explain how wall was a better point guard prospect than Rose coming out of college, because you make no sense? Rose took Memphis to the National Championships, and was a hair short from winning it all. And look up there college stats too, you'll feel even more stupid! LOL

    I'm saying Rose is vying for the best player in the league, not just best PG, he will be the best player in the world!!

    How is john wall the best PG prospect since iverson!?!? Do you know what PG went no.1 after iverson and eventually won ROY!?... Derrick Rose! So stop it with the john wall hype!! He is nowhere near the skill level of Derrick Rose!! Rose was Rookie of the Year, carried a very weak bulls team to the playoffs in his first two years, dunk on dragic, dunk in ATL, cross on miller, all-star in just his 2nd year, 4th highest selling nba jersey in just his second year, and already being considered for MVP going into his 3rd year! So how could u even put wall up against Rose when wall is clearly overshadowed by Roses' transcendent talents!? Oh yea, I forgot, that is what you and the media hype is for. And Rose is just not vying for best PG in the league...oh no... he's vying for the best player in the league!!!! We are in the golden age of the nba, and Derrick Rose is Michael Jordan. Or should we say... Michael Jordan will be the first Derrick Rose.
