Default Ladies and Gentlemen a Superstar has Arrived...

Cuban's Crisis, The Cuban Missile, ASAP call him what you will one thing is for certain Devin Harris is perhaps the most exciting breakout superstar of 08/09 and is here to stay. Already the most versatile point guard scorer in today's NBA, and a defensive stalwart. In many people's opinions Devin has surpassed Deron Williams this year and with a more refined passing game has the potential to approach Paul for point guard supremacy.

Statline: 23.8 points, 6.3 assists, 47% FG shooting, 1.4 steals

He is a great scorer, but I am not paticularly impressed by his passing or decision making. He is definitely a rising star, but not quite a superstar yet. He is on the same tier as Brandon Roy and Danny Granger.

My reasoning. He is a top 3 defender from the PG position (better man to man defender than many with the ability to play the lanes). And he is the best scorer from the PG position. Also he is a solid passer who assists skyrocket when his teammates hit open shots (go figure). He is also one of the best players in the NBA at getting to the line.

I'd have to go with Tony Parker being a better scorer from the point guard position with Devin being a close second.

He's not a superstar yet, but he'll get there in a few seasons.

This development just has me stunned, and totally doubting my ability to analyze players in general. I was sure he'd never be better than Rondo was last year. Dumb.

I can understand why you would say that, but the fact of the matter is Devin is less dependent on screens and has a greater range then TP with an equally impressive to the rim game (perhaps more impressive due to all the FT's).

He will be a super star if he continues to grow, but I don't consider people stars based on one year, well 1/3 of a year. He is a great scorer, and could potentially pass Paul as the best PG. So in that aspect we agree.

he is still below deron williams. he needs to develop his passing and playmaking ablility as a floor general... but he can definently score. He is possibly close tier where brandon roy is and i would put him on the same tier as danny granger.

All are second tier superstars. The only reason they aren't first is because they do not get the recognition.

It's a shame AI is so overrated, a smart fan would know Devin is exploding while AI is playing the worst ball of his career
