It's too early to tell. Derrick Rose took his team deep into the NCAAs. John Wall has led his team to an early strong record with a few close games. No doubt JW is as athletic as they come. Did anyone see the left handed dunk against Indiana this weekend. Explosive. Although, my wife pointed out that he had an easy assist and instead took it himself. Selfish? Maybe. But. Incredibly athletic. Yes.
I'd say John Wall is a better player. He is more athletic, and a better shooter. I believe John Wall could be one of the greatest players in the history of Basketball...all comparisons are legitimate, however speculation.
I am a UK fan, born with the Blue Blood because I was born in KY. BUT the better player has to be Derrick Rose. Rose led his team to the Championship, but then Wall is more athletic and has some monster dunks. The better player has to be Rose due to his impact at Memphis.
