Perry Jones Anthony Randolph Comparison.

Perry Jones in not like Anthony Randolph the thing that really kills the comparison is Jones is better built physically as a freshman in college than Randolph is after being in the Nba for a couple years. Also Jones is a little more athletic I really believe Jones can be a Kevin Garnett or Dwight Howard type of player if he wants to be I see him at worst being a Marcus Camby type player.

Nah

He's not more athletic than Randolph.

The Andray Blatche comparison is about as good as it gets.

I don't see what that has to

I don't see what that has to do with it.

The Randolph comparison works because they have similar types of athleticism. They move in similar ways.

Jones is more athletic than Anthony Randolph? Really? I think it's a huge compliment to be called as athletic as Randolph.

If anything, Randolph is closer to bigs like Garnett. whereas Jones that is more similar to a guy like Durant... tall lanky guy who plays on the perimeter and hits jumpers

Jones is more athletic then

Jones is more athletic then Randolph. Jones is more fluid in his movements then Randolph. And Randolph was in no way more skilled in college. Randolph put up like 15 a game on a terrible team playing mostly center. Randolph got his points in college by rebounding and running the floor.

Jones can get his points in a variety of ways and is a better passer now then Randolph ever will be. Baylor can run plays for Jones where he curls off the screen and catches and shoots, Randolph never had that ability in college. Jones can also go in the post and mix it up.

Jones is built better then Randolph at the same age and has a higher BB IQ. Hence the Reason Perry Jones will go top 3 in the draft and Randolph was the last player taken in the lottery. They are not the same prospects.

Randolph was a nice player with a lot of potential but never an elite talent. Perry Jones is an elite prospect who goes top 5 in any draft.

I honestly don't really know who you can compare Jones too. He has a nice perimeter game but isn't KD and he has a nice post game but isn't KG. Blatche comparisons are way off Jones is a better defender, shot blockers, and shot creator not to mention being nimble enough to guard small forwards. Look for Perry Jones to only get better as the year goes on and be in the discussion for the first pick.

I agree 100% that Andray

I agree 100% that Andray Blatche is a great comparison for Jones butidonthavemoney. I do think his upside is Rudy Gay though.

I admit I have not seen him

I admit I have not seen him play much, but from what I have seen and heard is that he's a perimeter oriented player much more so than an interior presence. His draft.net profile says his NBA position will almost certainly be small forward; a Tmac/ Randolph type guy. So i'm a little baffled by the Marcus Camby, Howard comparisons. Perry would have to start a steroid regimen asap to get a Dwight Howard body. As long as he is quick enough and can handle the ball his position should be the 3, and some minutes at the 4 spot. I think it would be a mistake to try to mold him into a post player. Obviously, when you are that tall you gotta do some work in the paint, especially in college but in the long run he is much better off doing what comes natural to him. We will see though, he's still very young, who knows he could end up being 7'1 lol.

He doesn't play like Tracy

He doesn't play like Tracy McGrady. Nevr liked that comparison. He looks to pass more than McGrady ever has really, and he's more of a combo forward than a swingman. Jones has raw perimeter skills, even though he can function as a face-up guy from about 15 feet at times. I've watched him play a bit this year, and he plays better the closer he is to the rim offensively, and even though he can be scored on defensively a bit down low, his foot speed laterally isn't great and he'd be a mediocre defender at best against SF's in the NBA.

I think the Blatche

I think the Blatche comparison is waaaay off, I think Perry Jones will be better than Randolph, and could possibly be a more athletic Chris Bosh with a handle.

I like the Andray Blatche

I like the Andray Blatche comparison. They were/are both combo-forwards when the came/come into the NBA, and are the same height and both have long wingspans. They are both good shooters, passers, and ball-handlers for their size. Jones is quicker and more athletic though, and Blatche is more aggressive on offense and is a better post player then Jones is, which makes Blatche a "purer" power forward then Jones.

Andray Blatche's ability to

Andray Blatche's ability to run the floor isn't much different than Perry Jones is you watch both play and compare. Jones is a better leaper and probably a notch quicker, but to say Blatche is "slow-moving" isn't true. I seriously don't think the Blatche comparison is as far off as alot of y'all are making it lol. They very nearly play the same style. There really isn't much of a difference.

Perry Jones has shown no more

Perry Jones has shown no more skills than Randolph at the same stage. He also show the same lack of desire when it comes to offense, he'll get rebounds and put backs and even score hook shots over whoever he's playing. But the players he's playing are way smaller. Anything I've seen Perry Jones do better comes from him being 40 pounds heavier at the same point. Jones' handles aren't better either, if you saw any of Randolph at LSU.

And CJ, a more athletic Bosh with handles would be a borderline hall of famer. Bosh has way more hustle and scoring instincts and played in the post with the intention of being dominant. Bosh was far better a post player than Jones at the same point, and Jones has more skills (jump shot, handles, passing). But he isn't at a NBA wing player's skill set and shows little desire to play good low post basketball. He's a tweener in the worst way. A player who swears hes a small forward when hes best of honing his low post skills.

Blatche-Randolph cross is SPOT ON.
