Is Maurice Jones quicker than Derrick Rose? His coach thinks so

Is Arthur Hill's Maurice Jones as quick as Derrick Rose?

Saginaw Arthur Hill head coach Greg McMath says his all-state point guard, 5-7 senior Maurice Jones, is quicker than just about anyone he’s seen including the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose.

Read what McMath told a reporter from the Los Angeles Wave recently:

Greg McMath, his coach at Arthur Hill High, said, “He’s one of the quickest players I’ve ever been around and ever seen. I’ve been to the ABCD camps and seen Derrick Rose and all those guys. He’s quicker than those guys.”

I don’t know if I would go that far, but he’s the quickest guard in Michigan and probably, at least pound-for-pound, the most athletic guard I’ve ever seen up close.

And if he’s 5-7, I’m 6-2 in bare feet.

    I don’t think it’s a stretch to say he’s quicker. He would have to be to be as good as he is. It’s just Derrick has about nine inches on the kid.
