Not premiere PG. Premiere *tiny* PG. Lawson and Nelson are two of the best distributors for guys who would need to sit on phone books in order to drive the team bus.
Well, there's still quite a distinction to be made there. Lawson - now slowly making his way out of underratedness - has been ranked in the top 10 PGs in the league. Nelson's a bottom-10 starting PG in this league.
They are both tiny, but that doesn't mean they're comparable.
Sure they are. They actually match up quite well! Here's their head-to-head in the latest season. Keep in mind that Nelson was basically playing with scrubs while Lawson piloted a playoff team:
Jameer when Ty was on the court (62 minutes total, stats are split into per-36 stats):
15.7 ppg, 44% FG, 29% from 3, 2.9 rpg, 7.5 apg
Ty when Jameer was on the court (62 minutes total, stats are split into per-36 stats):
16.3 ppg, 40% FG, 33% from 3, 2.9 rpg, 8.1 apg
So, when Lawson faced Jameer, he scored less, shot worse, but had more assists than his seasonal averages. When Jameer faced Lawson, he scored more, shot better, and had fewer assists than his season average. Again, that's 2012-2013.
You can say that's a small sample size (it is), but you can't say they aren't comparable.
