    Stars In The Making -- Comparisons

    I just wanted to get some different opinions about some of the young up-and-coming stars in the league. If you could compare them to one player/star/legend (former or active), who would it be? So, give you're opinion on these players ceilings for how good they could become (best-case scenario).

    Derrick Rose
    Kevin Durant
    OJ Mayo
    Jeff Green
    Brandon Roy
    Lamarcus Aldridge
    Russell Westbrook
    Brook Lopez
    Eric Gordon
    Al Thornton
    Michael Beasley
    Spencer Hawes


    If there's anymore you can think of that I forgot, go ahead and add them in there.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Russell Westbrook reminds me a little of Baron Davis.


    Brandon Rush reminds me of Rip Hamilton.

    Spencer Hawes reminds me of a more talented Brad Miller or Vlade Divac. His range extends to the 3 point line, he has good footwork in the post, and has shown great timing on blocks and rebounds. I think he has the chance to be better than Vlade was.

    LaMarcus reminds me of Pau.

    Finesse big, excellent offensively, should be grabbing more rebounds.

    Your all gonna say I'm crazy, but I truly believe that Brandon Roy can actually become better than Kobe Bryant in his prime.

    Andrea Bargnani- age 23. I would say he is kind of in between Dirk Nowitzki and Mehmet Okur.

    Derrick Rose has the strength and speed to be a Chris Paul but his range is not like cp3's and cp3 is a much better passer. But in the future Derrick can improve those. So in someways he resembles Cp3 while in others he doesnt.

    I'm a big time Brandon Roy fan, but I think he lacks the size to be as effective as Kobe's all around game.

    I can agree with Hawes being compared with Pau, but Hawes is never gonna have the shooting touch that Dirk possesses.
