I don't see the Nerlens

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.

Best Case/Worst Case

I should have specified that I sort of attempted a Best Case/Worst Case feel for these too.

^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.

Pretty good list....BUT im

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

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?

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

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

Nerlens

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

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.
