Wes Johnson = Danny Granger
Willie Warren = Ben Gordon
Avery Bradley = Russell Westbrook
DeMarcus Cousins = Marcus Camby
Patrick Patterson = Paul Millsap
Damion James = Caron Butler
Worst Case Potential/Best Case Potential
Evan Turner=Caron Butler/Brandon Roy
Ed Davis=Shorter Samuel Dalembert/Emeka Okafor
Derrick Favors=Antonio McDyess pre injuries/A'mare Stoudemire with more defensive effort
John Wall=Rajon Rondo with a shot/Jason Kidd with elite athleticism
Wes Johnson=Wilson Chandler/Quicker Danny Granger
Willie Warren=Randy Foye/Ben Gordon
Avery Bradley=George Hill/Joe Dumars
DeMarcus Cousins=Andray Blatche/Zach Randolph
Patrick Patterson=Carl Landry/Paul Milsap
Damion James=David Benoit from the Jazz/Damien Wilkins

Ricky Rubio=Jose Calderon/Jason Kidd
John Henson=Chris Anderson/Shorter Ralph Sampson - pre injuries
Xavier Henry=Nick Anderson/Glen Rice
Cole Aldrich=Joel Pryzbilla/Chris Kaman
Stanley Robinson=Darius Miles/Al Thornton with a better Basketball IQ
Aldrich reminds me of Raef LaFrentz
lol i love how everyone is pulling every white center there is out of the hat to compare Aldrich to. ill Bet Greg Ostertag, and John Bryant are next.
honestly i think hes a lot like Kendrick Perkins hes a great rebounder has good size, and length, and a great post defender not great offensivly but shoots a high percentage and gives you a little more than garbage points.
Lafrentz was pretty dece' before his ACL injury. I don't think Aldrich has the range Raef had though.
Kendrick without the attitude, but Aldrich doesn't come even close to having the same strength, I think Perkins came into the league at about 300 lbs at the age of 18.
1. Evan Turner---Brandon Roy
2. Ed Davis---Brandan Wright
3. Derrick Favors---Amare with more rebounding and defensive instincts
4. John Wall---Dwyane Wade
5. Wes Johnson--- Danny Granger
6. Willie Warren--- Randy Foye...Wouldn't be surprised if he were like Gilbert Arenas though
7. Avery Bradley--- George Hill
8. DeMarcus Cousins---Marreese Speights
9.Patrick Patterson--Antonio McDyess
10.Damion James--Gerald Wallace
Speights is a good comparison to Cousins.
Wow...I forgot about the Wall-Wade comparison...I've been saying that all along since he came to Kentucky
Could John Wall play the 2 like Wade?
I could see him playing off the ball for spurts in the NBA
If he works on his outside jumper, which has already seen drastic improvement from when he first came to Kentucky. I can also ask, "Can D-Wade play the 1?" Yes.
Can "The Great Wall" play the 2? Yes.
1. Evan Turner - roy without shot
2. Ed Davis - brandon wright
3. Derrick Favors - josh smith, better jumper but less jump shot happy
4. John Wall - a few weeks ago someone said kevin johnson, i couldn't agree more
5. Wes Johnson - rudy gay
6. Willie Warren - eric gordon
7. Avery Bradely - less athletic jonny flynn
8. DeMarcus Cousins - blatche sounds good to me
9.Patrick Patterson - david west worse jumper
10.Damion James - caron butler
