The Detroit Bad Boys blog, part of fanhouse, came out with an all over-rated team. Guess who's on it? Derrick Rose.
G- Derrick Rose
Rose moves up to the first team this year, after a decent rookie
campaign has everyone talking superstar. He could make the leap, but
it's equally possible he simply turns into an above average
combo-guard, and it's not out of the question that he turns into Larry
Hughes. Minus the defense, of course.
I actually like most of their list, and I don't even mind including Rose on it. I do think Rose has been overrated when people talk about him as if he's an all-star or super-star caliber player already.
However, there's no way he's ever Larry Hughes. Especially when you drop the, except the defense. If anyone thinks Rose is a worse version of Larry Hughes, then I'd question how much they've seen him play or whether they've bothered to ever look at his stat line.
Rose also has an excellent chance to back up those who've hyped him. He's obviously no where near his peak. Like many young players, fans tend to rate him on what they expect him to become rather than what he is at the moment.
