Your Own Player Comparison

Just for fun...if you can compare your own skill level to an NBA player (NBA comparison), who would you compare yourself too?

I would compare myself to Stephen Curry.

I can play both guard positions. Im an underrated passer who has a nice dribbling skill. I am known to be a 3-point shooter. Im developing my off the dribble jumpshot. On the defensive end, I can be a defensive liablity. Im not a TERRIBLE defender, but im not the greatest either. babyface assassin.

Who would you compare yourself too? Please be realistic.

A better Hedo Turkoglu.

I'm tall, I'm a really good shooter, my defence isn't that great, I can play all positions but C and my armspan is really long. I am not that fast, not that muscular BUT I do give my all whenever I play basketball.

Steve Nash or Jason Kidd?

100% capable ambidextrous passer, right handed shot. Usually lead a run and gun offense, I don't shoot 3 pointers at a high % but I do shoot free throws at a high %, rebound at a above average rate for a guard. Decent on defense but not a liability.

High school stats 14 ppg around 9 assists and 5 or 6 rebounds (jesus I'm old)

So Jason Kidd I guess?

Shaq minus 8 or 9 inches in height

Ray Allen/ JJ Redick a 3

Ray Allen/ JJ Redick a 3 point shooter who loves shooting off-screens. I would like to become more of a Stephen Curry/ Darren Collison player though i am very undersized for the 2.

a combo of Ron Artest and Gilbert Arenas. Nothing to do with their basketball skills though.

i would say for me its jason kidd, its hard to really say that but here is why, im a point guard, good rebounder, very good passer, capable on d, and can spot up and make it when open. im not a great ball handler anymore tho. i dont turn it over but im not crossing anybody over anytime soon.

A 6'2'' Theo Ratliff,

A 6'2'' Theo Ratliff, undersized post player who can still hold his own down low and is an elite shot blocker, doesn't look to score first although I would say i'm more of an impact player on offense because of my mid range game.

Larry Hughes with a Durant

Larry Hughes with a Durant type body at 6'0 except I can shoot and don't take bad shots and I can shut you down if your around my height and I'm extremely lanky which helps in the post I'm a left handed player but do everything else with my right handed so I can dribble with both hands going both ways pretty good and I'm 15 so I'm not finished growing.

Antoine Walker

Except a foot shorter. Believe me, I did not try to pattern my game after him, but his is the closest style I would compare to mine, especially with in his 3 chucking years. I wonder what some of these players would say about these comparisons if they saw us play, lol.

Poor Pureshooter

But, at the very least your comparison was quite humorous.

my comparison

Matt Bouldin/Kirk Hinrich

pass 1st PG...savvy, and a high IQ...fundamentally sound. solid mid range game. can post up smaller guards. solid defender. hustles and doesn't back back down

Ron Artest would be the best

Ron Artest would be the best comparison for me. I'm not as tall, but pound for pound, I'm pretty strong and tough. I do play tough, physical defense. I'm not a good jump shooter, but I got a good set shot. I can finish pretty strong, but nothing fancy. When I go to the hole, I almost always get fouled, but they never get called mainly because I play pickup.I'm the bum at the gym who actually likes to play defense at pickup games. Lol.

I would say (obviously poor

I would say (obviously poor mans) Allen Iverson. Built like a PG, but too much of a ballhog to actually be one. Alot of shooting, alot of getting in the lane and getting hit alot, some what streaky shooter.

the Indian Sabonis

I'm pretty big (fat) and I'm like 6'1" but I play like Arvydas Sabonis. Solid low post passer, rebounds, takes charges (or flops) and maybe hit a few jumpers. I usually get tired fast though, kinda like why Sabonis never logged heavy minutes lol
