Player Comparisons - Including MWP, P. George, Jennings (Blog post)
Hey guys, I have a blog for a class and for one post I tinkered around with Basketball-References player comparisons. It was a couple weeks ago, though, so some statistics might have changed a little.
I thought I'd post it here to spark some discussion about it. Criticism of the post itself is fine. I just wrote it out of boredom one Sunday.

Thoughts? Opinions? Jabs? lol
What other odd comparisons do you guys have?
EDIT: thanks for reading if you do.
Some of those (statistical) comparisons are scary similar.
I would've looked into Reggie Evans and Dennis Rodman when all Rodman wanted to do was rebound rather than defend.
Meh, comparing Reggie Evans to a Hall of Famer is pushing it a bit too far.
In case you wondering though:
Reggie Evans: 7.5 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 15.1 OREB%, 28.3 DREB%, 21.7 REB%
Dennis Rodman: 8.3 ppg, 14.9 rpg, 17.2 OREB%, 29.6 DEREB%, 23.4 REB%
Evans' rebounding percentages were higher than Rodman's during the playoffs, though.
Haha true, was just curious though. So thanks!
No problem, thanks for reading.
