You compared KAT, an energy

You compared KAT, an energy guy with literally no post moves, to the greatest post player of all time. Also, have you ever seen Richaun Holmes play...he sucks.

Sure KAT isn't Hakeem in the post but to say he has no post moves is ridiculous

Karl Anthony-Towns doesn't

Karl Anthony-Towns doesn't play defense and has no post moves. The Dream is the all-time leader in blocked shots and the greatest post player ever.

Myles Turner is a stretch 5. Alonzo Mourning made 22 out of 89 career threes and was a sub 70 % free throw shooter.

Ricaun Holmes is not anywhere near as explosive as Larry Nance.

How is Justin Anderson better than Stanley Johnson? Even if Stanimal sucks at offense, he's at least a lockdown defender. Justin Anderson is not nearly as good at D, nor is he nearly as athletic.

Delon Wright is not better than D-Lo, WCS, or Josh Richardson.

You're probably basing all your comparisons of statistics, not the players' actual skill sets.

I never really understand

I never really understand these "player comparisons." Are you saying that player A's game is similar to player B's? Or are you saying you expect player A to have a career about as successful as player B's? Or some combination of the two?

And what's with the comparisons to two players? What does it mean to say someone is like "Jermaine O'Neal/Dirk Nowitzki"? That he could be one or the other? That's basically saying that, other than knowing his approximate height and that he has elite talent, you have no idea what this guy's game is.
