Big vs Big
Just want to see who you guys think will be the better big's out of these guys:
Georgetown products: Hibbert vs Monroe
Ilyasova vs Anderson
Vucevic vs Kanter
Favors vs Ibaka vs Sanders
Do you mean Ryan anderson or Chris Andersen?
He clearly means the 35 year old Chris Anderson, how good do you think he can be when he hits his prime at 47? Use your brain my man.
I may as well chuck in a rookie comparison of:
Noel vs Bennett
Zeller vs Len
Monroe- Hibbert is valuable, but I feel Monroe has a higher upside.
Kanter- More offensively polished, seems to have a higher upside as well.
Favors- Has better size than Ibaka, more athletic than Sanders + a higher upside than both
Monroe... Ilyasova... Vucevic... Sanders... When Sanders develops his offensive game a little more he will be a beast... And anyone that thinks Favors is more athletic then Sansers must not watch the Bucks... Sanders is 1 of the most athletic bigs in basketball... He often guarded 3's last year including guarding Lebron on occasion...
I'd go Hibbert just because he's a true center and he's just a beast defensively while having a decent offensive game. Monroe has some untapped potential, but I'll go with Hibbert.
Ilyasova. Just think Anderson is more of a poor man's Ilyasova. Ilyasova put up nearly 20 and 10 after the all star break per 36 minutes. He's incredibly underrated.
I'll go Vucevic, but I'm extremely interested to see how Kanter does this year.
And lastly, I'll take Sanders. He's already a better defender than the other two IMO, and while he's a decent amount behind offensively, I think he's going to develop into a good pick and roll player. He's also a fairly skilled ball handler for a guy his size, so maybe he could develop a little face up and drive game.
