I don't see the Nerlens Alonzo comparison at all nor do I see McLemore and Ray Allen comparison. I like the Porter comparsion to Deng though, also like MCK compared to Shaun Livingston. Definitely don't like Trey Burke compared to Collison though, I think his ceiling is a lot higher but just my opinion. Interesting post though.
I should have specified that I sort of attempted a Best Case/Worst Case feel for these too.
Kentavious cald- well pope and marshon brooks have nothing in common besides being similar size, there games are totally different.
^That makes a whole lot more sense as i was thinking with regards to Steven Adams, that is a unreal difference difference between Andrew Bynum and Patrick O’Bryant hahahaha.
mmm i really don't see the michael redd or quentin richardson comparison for shabazz i do like the luol deng comparison tho for porter.
Pretty good list....BUT im tired of seeing all these comparisons for this draft let them play first man.
Deshawn Stevenson was the next MJ man lol remember?
Mike Beasley was supposed to be the next Carmelo
Bill Walker was supposed to be the next Vince
We don't know how they will project, injuries happen, players don't translate sometimes.
Give them time
Well then why in the hell are we here if we're not allowed to project how good players will be or what their playing styles will be like at the next level?
Im not saying people cant do that, it's a list made like this every other day is what im saying, chill my guy, people aint gotta make a list everyday.
Im just saying let them have their fun. Thats why this site exists.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looks an lot like Nick Young in the highlights I've seen. I would be targeting him if I were the 76ers GM to pair with Holiday
They do already have a nick young on their roster though
Hey guys what do you think about a Mutombo/ Noel comparison? I mean with a couple inches size difference, but the defensive potential and lack of offensive presence kind of led me to this.
I didn't get if you are talking about actual style of play or projected role in the league. For example: I can see Bennett becoming an Elton Brand-like player in few years (as a best case scenario)... but he's nowhere near that at the moment.
It would be their Projected Role
McLemore=A bigger Eric Gordon
Alex Len= Zydrunas Illgauskas
Cody Zeller=Brooke Lopez
Oladipo= Arron Afflalo
Muhammed= Vince Carter
Steven Adams=Greg Oden(Pre-Injury)
Dario Saric=Peja Stojakovic
Giannis Adetokunbo=Luol Deng
One more:Burke=Kyle Lowry
