Jrue>> lawson no disrespect

jrue plays more minutes and averages weaker numbers than lawson, lawson is also more efficient. Also lawson has players he defers to such as gallinari afflalo miller harrington and nene while jrue has ? iggy?


Jrue EFF: + 14.90
Lawson EFF: + 18.30

both have 2 years pro.

Now THAT'S disrepsectfull
The sixers as of now are regarded as one of the deepest teams in the leauge with the nbas best bench to boot
I have respect for the nuggets and have liked them since the camby and ai days as a 3rd or 4th favotire team so I understand your a nicely rounded team not as much as last year but yes now to answer your question Evan Turner *much better this year playing well in every way* iggy brand < obvious you where intentually insulting us when u didn't mention brand nik vucivc (guy is gonna be good) SPENCER HAWES (double double guy this year) Thad young and jodie meeks

Also jrue has to spilt time with lou willams

Im sorry i wasnt trynna be disrespectful but all the numbers back lawson up. The numbers jrue is putting up this year lawson practically put up last year backing billups up half the season.

Fun fact jrue is 6"4 180 pounds and lawson is 5"11 195 pounds :speechless:

How can you call him disrespectful when you come into a thread about Ty Lawson and post 'Jrue>>Lawson'?

This thread has nothing to do with Jrue (who is also a great talent).

The nuggets have more talent on their team than the sixers have. Im sorry for breaking it down to you like that. The nuggets have players who were actual starters coming off the bench. 4 of them to be exact.

Wicth is why I think jrue will end up better he has the size to defend both guard postions and is allready a great 2 way player and jrue hasn't played his best ball this year last season is probibly a better year to compare to lawson this year honestly
Don't get me wrong lawson is a nice little player and defeintly under credited but if I where building a franchise id take jrue

I've followed him from his days at UNC. He was the key to their National Championship. I always thought he'd make a great pro at NBA level. Each year he seems to take it to another level, which is a great sign for the future. Denver have a great team.

IMO jrue without brand or iggy on that team would be a 12 win team. He's light for his height and doesn't posses good court vision which is why his assists are low. The only thing he's better than Lawson at is 3s and that's just a tad bit better.

He's a very, very good PG and extremely fast. DEN has been a better team since he took over the starting job.

That being said there are just so many good/great PG's in the NBA today so I'm not sure where you rank him. Off the top of my head...

CP3
Deron
Nash
Westbrook
Rondo
Rose
Curry

He's def top 10 to me now.

I'd easily take Ty over Curry, and would probably take him over Westbrook too. He's much more efficient than them, has a better mindset, a better play maker, and knows when to score instead of forcing things like Westbrook does.

How is he being an *** about anything? He's proven you wrong and exposed your homerism. He's right, Lawson is better than Holiday in virtually every single offensive statistic. And it's really not even close. Lawson has been phenomenal this season, exponentially better than Jrue.

PER: 22.3 vs 15.7
True shooting %: .603 vs .531
Effective field goal %: .551 vs .500
Assist %: 30.7 vs 19.9
Turnover %: 14.8 vs 16.8
Usage %: 22.4 vs 21.7
Offensive win shares: 1.2 vs 0.4

Lawson is obviously far more superior. What on earth are you trying to argue?

no way, I like Lawson, but Curry at 22 averaged 19ppg 6apg & 4rpg on 48% fg's 44% 3's and 93% ft's. How many 22 year olds in NBA history put up those numbers?

thats insane Nash like Efficiency. Keep in mind that was playing alongside one of the biggest ball hogs in the NBA. Once GSW gets rid of Ellis, Curry will really flourish IMO unless his ankle is a real problem.

And Westbrook might be off to a slow start, but you're talking about a guy that produced last year at a near Derrick Rose level. lets not write him off just yet. He just turned 23!

The only reason you'd take Ty over Curry is injuries, otherwise Curry is the better player in just about every facet of the game. Ty maybe one of the quickest guards in the league, but quickness doesn't correlate to being a great PG. He is a very good PG, but not great. The lack of an outside shooting touch, and not being an overly good defender is keeping him out of the top spots.

Ty is actually pretty good from deep, not great like Steph... but decent enough. And from what I've seen, Ty's better than Curry defensively. Steals and BPG =/= a good defensive player.

I wasn't attempting to say steals/blocks = defense, simply Curry has the slight size and length advantage over Lawson, which gives him a significant edge over Lawson against the bigger stronger PGs in the league. I'm not downplaying Lawson, but I feel he may be overwhelmed with some of the PG match ups in the league. Even though it would be a small sample size, we haven't seen Lawson up against the really elite PGs in the league this season, so I could very well be eating my words when it happens.

01-14-2012, 12:38 PM
Yea - Curry is better - hope he stays healthy.
Westbrooke - His talent is there, but I don't think his ego does him any favors.

Ty is great and has more upside to go. The unique thing about him is his speed and mass combined. You can't knock him off down the lane or out on the perimeter. His size hasn't been a liability on defense, his shot is really developing, both 3 and mid range. He always always finishes at the rim. He gets very little love from the refs which is gonna change.

he's absolutely legit, not sure if he's an all-star because the position is so stacked. once nash retires or moves east he might get a shot. still, paul, westbrook, curry, with lowry coming on very strong as well. rubio one day maybe. it's a deep field but lawson belongs.

I think youre underestimating ty's strength and defense, the kid can defend the toughest pgs, he has quick hands and limits cuts to the basket from opposing pgs, he suffers a little from length to block shots or anything but he has good technique and gets a hand in guys faces, this kid is tough and scrappy, i think he has upside that rivals any other pg in the league and right now he is a second tier guy with the westbrook down group on your list

I disagree. Rose has averaged the most assists of his career, 8.5, so I can't see how you categorize him at the 2 this year. Naturally he looked like a true SG but is developing in to a pretty good distributor this season alone. And you forgot to mention Rondo

For one that's its to early in the season to be pulling out the stats xD also he was comming of as an *** bring up depth and people lawson has to defer to and made it seem as though philly had no other good players
However he has cleared up the statment I was offened about however as of now I take holiday over lawson if I'm building a team I may be in the mintory but as he said there's a huge diffence between 6.4 and 5.11
It stands to reason holiday will have a longer carrer and will be better on the defenivce end of the floor
And I value defence over offence any day. Btw the homerism thing doesn't really play a factor as I strongly follow both teamswhy is it that if a person holds an oppoin on a player of there own team others don't argee with they MUST be a homer?

Although he has 5 inches on Lawson, Lawson has 15 pounds on him and is a lot quicker. Lawson is a great defensive player and he's not really a liability on that end of the court so your argument is invalid. Jrue is not a better defensive player just because he's taller, I don't even think he's a better defensive player at all. Lawson has the ability to run an offense and when the offense is struggling get his own. Hes unselfish and I'm sorry if I sound like a homer but he's in a higher league than jrue. All in all this thread was about getting people's opinions on Ty Lawson not comparing him to other players.

yeh true, athe sixers have played good, and there record says it, but if you look at the games they have played...... then you can see that so far the schedule has been in the 76'ers favour so far.

I have heard a few ppl saying jrue is better than lawson. I mean if you don't want to look at the stats, look at the actually game, lawson does things that only he could do in this league, no joke, kids a star in the making

Your rite, i love lawson but i wouldn't yet say i'd take him over westbrook, even though lawson is performing alot better this season. But i think you have been misinformed about lawson. He is a solid strong defending PG, and his 'outside shooting touch' is very good. i don't suppose you remember him going 10/10 from deep last year???

Other than that, Lawson needs to gain more confidence in himself as a game changer, his flaws so far is that he is a bit too unselfish at times. He could also improve his ability to create his own jump shot. If he improves in those areas, which i think he can, then he could be top 5 PG in a couple of years

Yup this is pretty much is. Holiday has the tools to be a better PG down the road than Ty and is 3 years younger than he is as well.

Holiday's ceiling is higher but Lawson has without question been the better player thus far this season.

lawson is one of the best young pg's in the league. he makes everyone on his team better and chooses his shots excellently. he is one of the best in transition and his body control and ability to finish at the rim are extraordinary. he is no slouch from behind the arc and his handle is getting ridiculous. i am thrilled to be a nuggets fan, ever since the melo trade it has been a privilege to watch them. lawson is a player who has gotten much better each year. i don't expect him to be a 20ppg scorer on a team that has so many weapons but his passing ability will allow him to average 10 assists +. he is a 2 way player and has an incredible fearless motor. imo curry, reke, rubio, flynn, holiday and jennings are all inferior to lawson. it's funny too because they were all drafted ahead of him. who was lawson traded for? a draft pick that turned out to be trevor booker.

Hell be good, say a 16 and 8 guy. But i don't think he will reach the level of a CP3 or a Williams. Nonetheless extremely bring future, will be a very good player.


Duh lol:eyebrow:

I think by the end of the season both Ty and gallo will average 20+ ppg
