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 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
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?)
i think derrick favors is a less athletic josh smith but with a better jumpshot, and it has been said a lot but the greg monroe chris webber comparison is right on the money
xavier henry-mikael pietrus (more consistent 3?)
with time jr smith?
Scotty Hopson-J.R. Smith
John Wall-Derrick Rose meets Dwyane Wade
DeMarcus Cousins- Mareese Speights
Kemba Walker-Ty Lawson
Terrico White- Caron Butler
Wesley Johnson-Danny Granger
Derrick Favors-Amare (better defender/rebounder)
Larry Sanders-Tyrus Thomas (worse mid-range game)
Jan Vesely F/C 6’10 Luis Scola (hopefully)
Nemanja- Turkoglu athletic
Alexey Shved younger more athletic (skinnier) marko Jaric
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
John Wall - Derrick Rose/D'Wayne Wade
Xavier Henry - Paul Pierce (More Athletic)
Derrick Favors - Josh Smith (Hungrier)
Greg Monroe - Jermaine O'Neal (Pre Injuries)
Evan Turner - Bigger Brandon Roy
