if you wanted an unbiased response, you should have put this on the MSB. it's going to be 95% Davis on here.

it's an interesting question. Rose's talent and medical issues right now. AD's got a ton of talent that we see, can he carry a team like rose.

And ha at the notion of MSB not being biased.

If Rose didn't have the ACL it would probably be him. Guy is a legit Top 5 Player in the game IMO.

But Davis is a big and his ceiling is ridiculous.

Its a tough call honestly. You're measuring the proven superstar ability of Rose versus the hope that Davis reaches his potential, which is All-Time great in terms of ceiling.

Tough call. I'll say Rose.

It's tough to say until we see Davis next season, when he plays starter minutes.

Rose played 37 MPG his rookie season.

Rose is four and a half years older than Davis, also.

Until Rose gets back on the court and shows that his knee can hold up for an entire season, I'd say Davis.

I get very wary of players with lower-body issues, especially knees, because of the amount of wear and tear those parts of the body due to weight being put on them whenever you move.

Best Case: Rose returns to dominant form, improves ast:to ratio, and is as dynamic of a PG as the game may have ever seen.

Worst Case: Rose could be Francis/Starbury and out the league in 6 years if Athleticism isn't there.

I think there is still more risk with Rose than there is with Davis and with being 4.5 years older and having one major knee surgery under the belt, it would be tough to take Rose's future.

However, Davis isn't exactly proven and I am not sure he will ever the build of a 5 but he could improve his outside game and become a better KG. Worst case, he is a solid 22 MPG big who can score dunks, hit occasional shots and defend with the best of them.

Either way, 30 teams are happy to have either.

Unbiased answer. Davis. Kid will be a top ten player in two years and will be consistently be in MVP talks from there. Ridiculous room to grow

Tough one, but I'd have to say Davis simply because I don't know what Rose will be after his knee. I feel like he's missed two seasons at this point

I think Davis has the potential to be all offense and all defense. Hopefully he can get the right developers for his body and coaches to put him in the best situations.

Derrick Rose is an MVP. That should answer all of the questions.
