On ESPN's podcast today, Chad Ford says nothing (no surprise there) but David Thorpe rates the PG prospects. He has Rubio as the best in the class (based on his pure instincts for the position) and has Curry and Jrue Holliday ranked equally as the next best group. He has worked out Holliday and comments on his intellect, personality, strong family and desire to play defense... I repeat, his desire to play defense. Thorpe also says that while Jrue had a bad year shooting at UCLA, he thinks his shot is fine mechanically and that he shot lights out in his gym. Thorpe thinks that Jrue's defensive prowess is to be highly valued by teams since point guards so easily blow by their man on most teams. As for Curry, he simply says his offensive game is just so much better than everyone else's that his is the top group.
I wonder if Jrue is really our back-up plan if Rubio is gone.
