Judging by your comparisons

Judging by your comparisons your saying Dakari Johnson is arguably the best player in this class? I like your comparisons and it looks like you left out Aaron Harrison, Aaron Gordon and others.

As for Andrew Harrison ive heard hes actually an unselfish player so the Tyreke Evans comparison isnt really that spot on. Maybe more of a Derek Harper? Its tough to say not many PGs his size (6'5)

For Julius Randle i think hes more of a true PF then Josh Smith who has some perimeter skills. Chris Webber is a good comparison.

Nerlens Noel is Marcus Camby

Nerlens Noel is Marcus Camby 2.0. Marcus Camby was (and still is somewhat) a long, thin, athletic, shot-blocking center that hails from New England. Nerlens, also like Camby is raw offensively, although he's still young and has time to improve his post skills. Nerlens can wind up being a better player than Camby, but I see a Marcus Camby type career for him as a shot blocking, rebounding specialist.

Every lottery team this year should trade out

for unprotected picks next year because this is obvoiusly the deepest draft class ever!!!!!!

Imagine though, if a team gets three lottery picks in 2013

they could draft Melo, Kobe and Shaq in the same draft! Amazing, simply F-ing, amazing!

These players are the top of

These players are the top of the top of the 2013, 2014, and 2015 draft classes, they will not all be in one draft.

Even so, Andrew Bynum meets Shaq sounds downright legendary. Wiggins and Parker both have the hype to be hall of famers, but it's not a good idea to be projecting the players who are still high school sophomores. Especially comparing them to a Bynum/Shaq mix.

Good thing they are spread out over a couple classes

because CP3 and D12 would have to sign for league minimum after next season. For the original poster to have all those negs, lets at least acknowledge this was a terrible post.

Shabazz reminds me of a young

Shabazz reminds me of a young Jerry Stackhouse.

Like the Noel-Ibaka comparison.

I dont see the Pau comparison for Adams. He's young but he plays a physical brand of basketball. He has much more body strength than Pau had at the same stage. He's still raw too, while Pau at his age was talked about as a possible tall SF because of his skill level.

Kyle Anderson reminds me of a smarter version of young Jalen Rose (before he became a chucker).

I see some Gil Arenas in Purvis. Physically mature guard with very good quickness, but is still developing as a PG.

Like the Ricky Ledo-MarShon comparison, although he could become a mix of Tyreke as well.

Like the Parker-Hill comparison, although Parker has less athleticism than young Grant Hill. He shoots like Carmelo though.

I think Andrew Harrison's upside is Brandon Roy. Andrew plays a winning brand of basketball, unlike Tyreke. I think his brother can become an Aaron Afflalo-type.

Harden has a floor game, Bazz

Harden has a floor game, Bazz doesn't. Both are 6'5" and left-handed, but that's where the comparison ends.

Man NOEL IS ALL HYPE let me

Man NOEL IS ALL HYPE let me be the first to say it. The hi -top makes it worst.When you have a palyer who worries about his box more then his post moves on the lower block its a problem he is full of himself.

Wiz I dont like the harden

Wiz I dont like the harden -bazz comparison either, bazz plays more physicall and above the rim then Harden.Harden plays at a slower pace and has better play makeing skills.Like MKG bazz does have more of a north south game then harden also he doesn't move the ball side to side to move the defense or set team mates up yet he goes straight to the bucket if he feeling it and thats more times then not.

"they could draft Melo, Kobe and Shaq in the same draft! Amazing, simply F-ing, amazing"

Thats funny^^^^^^
