Player comparison thread

Im not sure if one has already been made, but in this thread you compare prospects game to other players. Like for example John Wall = Derrick Rose/Rajon Rondo (even though that one has been done to death)

John Wall-PG version of

John Wall-PG version of D-Wade
Derrick Favors-hard working Amare
Greg Monroe-C.Bosh, better size
Ed Davis-Tyrus Thomas, more defensive player
Willie Warren-Ben Gordon with Eric's upside
Donatas Motiejunas-somewhere between Pau and Dirk
Evan Turner-Roy/Butler
Henry-young Pierce

all in all every player are unique enough, especially Wall Favors Monroe plus it's very hard to compare Sidney and Cousins to someone(maybe more versatility Zach and bigger R.Wallace?)

lalaila-  Nice job on those
lalaila-  Nice job on those comparisons.  The only one I really don't like is the Ed Davis/ Tyrus Thomas.  Tyrus has a better outside game & is a better athlete.  Davis can't jump like Thomas either.  Overall Tyrus is better on offense & defense.  Ed Davis is more of a true post player than Tyrus is.

i also don't like it lol...just don't know his comparisons, but he isn;t so unique like SIdney Wall so i just tried..
and btw Tyrus can block shots but Davis do it might even better and he is way better rebounder, he is something like GSW duo, Randolph's defense Wright's offense, and TT's body lol

Anthony Randolph is better on offense and defense than Brendan Wright...don't snub my boy Anthony like that!

I haven't watched enough of these players enough but some things I can point out.

Cousins is no Speights. Speights has one of the best offensive games in the paint in the NBA. He's a beast down low. Cousins, while he has the body and potential, is just a whiny baby who is too finesse.

Also a question. I see Monroe being compared very favorably to C-Webb and CB4...I'm calling bust right now. I haven't see a game in a couple weeks but when I did the do was wretched. Just horrible, weak, had no desire to take over or impose his will. Seemed like he was just running around for the hell of it. Hahah, could be the princeton offense, I don't know, but I don't see much more than potential in his height and length. I would not take him in the lottery
