Realistic Player Comparison For Trey Burke
Best Case Scenario: Terrell Brandon
Worst Case Scenario: Earl Watson
I loved, loved, loved Terrell Brandon as a NBA Point Guard. It seemed like he got better every year. He was a lottery pick, two time all-star, and arguably a top 6 or 7 point guard during his time when he was playing at an extremely high level in the NBA. Great leader, good scorer, great play-maker, and talented passer, who played with a tremendous amount of poise, toughness, and confidence

I think he is more pass first than Brandon but no arguments here on either comparison
Best case scenario is Tony Parker now. Worst case is Mo Williams. He is a sure fire top 10 pick at this point. He is the one guy who actually made a positive case for being a top 5 pick during the tourney.
Trey Burke, like Jameer, does not have great size for a NBA pg. Trey Burke, also like Jameer, is a good leader who has a knack for knocking in 3 pointers. Trey has a bit more athleticism. Jameer has had a consistent NBA career as a starter and even had a trip to the Finals.
I believe this is a very realistic comparison to Trey Burke.
less athletic Damian Lillard...
For all the shit that MCW has gotten for supposedly racking up all his numbers against bad teams, Burke is shooting around 38% from the field when he plays against decent competition, and he tends to shoot the ball more in those games than he does against lesser competition.
