Numbers are not everything but statistically Rice is a better shooter, a better passer, and a better rebounder than Mills. That might not mean much, but Rice played against a lot better competition than Mills. I don't know if anyone saw what he did to Ty Lawson two years in a row. I mean he ate dude. I would still take Lawson before Rice though. Rice broke JJ Redicks three point record in highschool and has had defenses play him tight from there since coming in. I suspect when he is not focused on he will be more dangerous. I only seen Mills once so can you tell me what would make him go in the 1st round over Rice? Rice can get off the floor he dunks with ease.
Well i would take Patrick Mills b4 Tyrese Rice because i think he proved himself when he played in the olympics this past summer. He did a good job playing against high caliber nba players and other euro players
I did not see him in the Olympics, but that would make sense if he did his thing there versus that competition. I think Tyrese is on this kids level still.
He didn't look the same this year in college at St. Mary's as he did in the olympics. I feel as if he was possibly playing hurt most of this past year because he was faster in the olympics. He was a blur when Deron Willaims and Jason Kidd were trying to keep up with him. Even Paul admitted he was fast. If he can get to the shape he was in for the Olympics, he has potential to be great. I don't see Rice being anymore than a quality back up and at best an Aaron Brooks type player (which looks really good as of late).
"He's good. Man, he's fast. I read something that says he's faster than me. They're probably right. He can move."
