What You Think the 2009 Draft Prospects NBA Comparisons Should Be (Part 2)
I created a threat a few months ago about what theses draft prospect comparisons really should be. I'ma revive this topic here.
Blake Griffin-Amare Stoudimire/Shawn Kemp
Ricky Rubio-Steve Nash/Pete Maravich
Hasheem Thabeet-Samuel Dalembert/Dikembe Mutombo
Jordan Hil-Jermaine O'neil(pre-injuries)/Antonio McDyess
James Harden-Paul Pierce/Brandon Roy
Brandon Jennings-Russell Westbrook/Kenny Anderson
Demar Derozen-Vince Carter
Earl Clark-Lamar Odom
Gerald Henderson-Latrell Sprewell/Dantay Jones
Johnny Flynn-Devin Harris/Deron Williams
Wayne Ellington-Daquean Cook
Chase Budinger-Rudy Fernandez
James Johnson-Danny Granger/Ryan Gomes
Eric Maynor-Mike James
Ty Lawson-Raymond Felton
Stephen Curry-Mike Bibby/Eddie House
Tyreke Evans-Jamal Crawford/Baron Davis
Patrick Patterson-Jason Maxiell
Jeff Teague-Monta Ellis/Kevin Johnson
BJ Mullens/Amir Johnson
DeJuan Blair/Paul Millsap
Patrick Mills-Aaron Brooks
Gani Lawal-Chris Wilcox
Sam Young-James Posey
Terrence Williams-Andre Iguodala
Omri Casspi-Andres Nocioni
Damion James-Darius Miles/Leon Powe
Tyler Hansberough-Luis Scola/Udonis Haslem
DaJuan Summers-Wilson Chandler
Jeff Pendergraph-Mikki Moore
Vladimir Dasic -N/A
AJ Price -N/A
The guys with N/A, I have no idea what their comparisons should be so I need your help and posts your comparisons.
Just at a glance I don't know about Bj Mullens being Amir Johnson. I would have gone with a poorman's Mehmet Okur or Troy Murphy.
To me Jordan Hill is the next lamarcus Aldridge
Blake Griffin being compared to Shawn Kemp and Karl Malone from the get go. let's stick with David lee for now.
Patrick Patterson is a more complete player than Jason Maxiel will ever be. I don't know who you would compare him to, but I think Elton Brand might do justice.
Way to low blow Eric Maynor on the Mike James comparison.
The chase budinger and rudy fernandez comparison? I don't know about that one
I dont think hes close to Amir Johnson at all. Johnson is more of a tweener forward, while Mullens is a true C. I do really like the Summers-Chandler comparison though. And I dont think Harden has the leadership that Roy or Pierce have.
Mullens and Amir Johnson are similar. But what is up with the Tyreke Evans-Jamal Crawfors comparison everybody keeps making?? Jamal Crawford is a better shooter and he is far more explosive than Evans. Tyreke Evans is like Aaron McKie with a worse jumper. And Sam Young-James Posey??? More Joey Graham..Jonny Flynn-should be Chris Paul
