Perfect NBA comparisons? PLEASE

Oh my goodness some of you guys are so off. For example:

  • Alec Burks=Latrell Spreewell? No its more like Brandon Roy
  • Klay Thompson=Kevin Martin? Heck no, more like Micheal Redd/Morris Almond
  • Doron Lamb= Afflalo? you're kidding me, right. Afflalo plays amazing defense and can shoot very well from 3, while Lamb has subpar defense and is not nearly the 3pt shooter that Afflalo is.
  • JuJuan Johnson=Jordan Hill/Joe Smith? Both are underachievers so how can you compare Johnson to them when Johnson will be good in this league.
  • Montie=Lemarcus Aldridge? Try again. Montie is more soft than Aldridge is. Montie is more Andrea Bargnani
  • Jason Thompson doesn't even play center that often so how can you compare him to Keith Benson who will be playing Center his entire career. I see more Steven Hunter in him
  • Jimmer Fredette has a great like House does but he will be a lottery pick and I'm willing to bet a much better player than House. The only thing that they have in common is their shot. Jimmer is more like Ben Gordon.
  • Derrick Williams=Shareef Abdur rahim meets JJ Hickson? Not even close more like Antwant Jamison/Danny Granger
  • The Leslie comparison to Shannon Brown is a lot closer than the Jason Richardson comparison. If he was J-Rich he'd be a lottery pick for sure.
  • And Kyrie Irving is Chris Paul through and through. No way does he resemble Tony Parker

No offense Kobyz not trying

No offense Kobyz not trying to be an arse but how can anyone give Kobyz a positive for that reply? The thread is asking if anyone has a perfect comparison...Those arent perfect comparisons. Lamercus Aldridge leads the league in dunks if Im not mistaken, and you compared Motie to Aldridge?

Ive got one, Valanciunas to Gortat....

Alright then, here we go...

Klay Thompson - Mike Miller/Derek Anderson

Brandon Knight - Better scoring, more out of control Kirk Hinrich

Kyrie Irving - Deron Williams

Harrison Barnes - 16ppg Shane Battier

Travis Leslie - Tony Allen or Shanon Brown upside with Hassan Adams as floor

Derrick Williams - A mix of David West with Amar'e's athleticism and Danny Granger

Alec Burks - Manu Ginobili if he pans out or James Harden, although we can't be sure what he'll be like in his prime, Larry Hughes if he can't "sacrifice" for the team

Tristan Thompson - LMA meets Thad Young

Kemba Walker - Inefficient Damon Stoudamire

Jarred Sullinger - In between Luis Scola and Carlos Boozer, worse defense then both

Terrence Jones - Blackhole version of Josh Smith

Scotty Hopson - Matt Barnes

Nolan Smith - More accurate Randy Foye

Justin Harper - Donte Greene

Tyler Honeycutt - More athletic Tayshaun Prince

David Lighty - Taller Charlie Bell-ish

Jeff Taylor - Somewhere between Wilson Chandler and Richard Jefferson

Jordan Hamilton - Prime Rashard Lewis

Marcus Morris - Poor man's tweener Melo

Donatas-Chris Bosh (same height/weight/quickness,he seems just as soft as Bosh,heard from many Lithunian's that he isnt a great shooter boomshakalacka)

Jimmer-Mike Bibby(better shooter) (i dont see how he cant be like that)

Willie Green-LaceDarius Dunn

Lol at whoever said Doron

Lol at whoever said Doron lamb was a bad 3pt shooter compared to Afflalo. Lamb shot 47% from 3 this year which is crazy good where Afflalo was only like 38%.

I like the Derrick Williams comparison to Antawn Jamison/Thadeus Young. It also seems like alot of people agree with the Irving - CP3 comparison as well. David Lighty - Doug Christie/Charlie Bell is pretty good too.

cost15

cost15 for you saying that doron lamb shot way better from 3 u gotta remember that the nba 3 is farther back and that aaron afflalo is know for s 3 point shooter so nba teams look to mainly guard is 3 point shooting and yeah ur wrong about his percentage he is shooting .423 which is 8th in the league right now and also right above kyle korver who broke the record for 3point % last year

Combo of both @ what

Combo of both @ what

Robinson was a power forward in college who became a pretty good small forward in the pros. He did not want to play defense in the pros though. Look him up and then maybe you will know what I am talking about.

Also if you disagree state

Also if you disagree state reasons why. Anyone can just criticize and really add nothing. Also it is hard to think of another point guard that Irving does not resemble except for Paul. I tried and saying he is more KJ over Paul is not saying much because KJ and Paul are pretty close except KJ was a better scorer.

I was talking about afflalos

I was talking about afflalos 3pt % from college when he played at ucla. I know afflalo is killing it right now in the league but i felt it would be fair to compare the players from how they played in college.

I don't see the reason to give a reason why...

Saying they are similar because Robinson was a college power forward who became a NBA small forward is like saying Kevin Durant and James Johnson are alike.

mine

Kawhi Leonard- slightly less athletic Gerald Wallace

Brandon Knight- Martini23's comparison of Jrue's body meets J-Terry's skills is incredible

Faried- In between Rodman and Reggie Evans but more metally stable than both

Jordan Hamilton- shorter, old school version of Rashard Lewis
