Xavier Henry vs. Evan Turner
Interesting to compare stats for Freshman year for Xavier Henry and Evan Turner:
Turner: 27.1min/8.5pts/4.4reb/2.6ast/2.7to/1.3stl/.5blk/.470fg%/.70ft%/.33 3pt%
Henry: 27.5min/13.4pts/4.4reb/1.5ast/1.9to/1.5stl/.5blk/.458fg%/.78ft%/.42 3pt%
How will these players compare in three years?
Not that interesting.
If Xavier can work on his quickness and his handles he can be special.
Let me work on some stupid stats to make someone look ridiculously good.
Kobe Bryant: 7.6ppg his rookie year
Marcus Thornton: 14.5ppg his rookie year
How will these players compare in 3 years?
while I agree with your point,you should remember both Kobe's age and Thornton age at their Rookie year,one was 18 the other was 24
while Henry was 18 as freshman and Turner was 19
I know the age thing is a little overrated but it still counts when you consider player potential
These guys don't play alike though. Turner has the ball in his hands while Henry is more a spot up kind of guy.
Turner is a PG in a SG's body. He will actually be alot like rondo but taller so he can switch on wings. If Evan put's on LeBron type muscle or develops his outside shot like he showed he started to do last year, he will be great. I'm not sure what team fits him best, but Philly would be good with AI2 and Minnesota would be terrible with only love to spread the floor.
Henry is a shooter, he will score and in bunches but will need a pg, if he some how gets taken by Sacramento then he and Tyreke will be unstopable. If he played with Sac Tyreke could play the bgger of the other teams wings and Henry could presure the ball handler.
