This Makes No Sense to Me

If Joel Embiid is being compared to Hakeem Olajuwon and Andrew Wiggins is being compared to Scottie Pippen, then why is Andrew Wiggins projected to go higher? Last time I checked, Hakeem Olajuwon was a better player than Scottie Pippen.

Lol

I was wondering that too...Maybe it's because Embiid is a higher-risk prospect than Wiggins?

Deshawn Stevenson was once

This site once compared Deshawn Stevenson to Michael Jordan, don't get too worked up over it. Also Embiid comparison is somewhat ridiculous. The comparisons are also to give you a picture of the players style of play.

Aran prefaces it by saying

Aran prefaces it by saying that if any player in the draft has a higher upside than Wiggins it's Embiid, and follows it up with "It is sacrilegious to compare Olajuwon to anyone."

The player comparison is more

The player comparison is more indicative of their style of play, not their ceiling. To me, Wiggins will be way better than Scottie Pippen, but he is most comparable to Scottie because he plays both ends of the floor. Ditto for Jabari and Melo.

I couldn't agree more.

I couldn't agree more. Comparisons should be used for style of play.

I will plus one on that. I say everytime Comparisons are for style, not for how their career will end up.

Here we go with someone not

Here we go with someone not understanding comparisons again. Comparisons are style of play, not projections of who they will be like in the NBA.
