the resemblance is remarkable.

Just about the same height and weight as well.

What do you guys think?

Ebanks is noticeably darker and honestly they don't really look alike.

In my opinion, Devin Ebanks will be a better player than Trevor Ariza. The Lakers got a steal!

^^ he may very well be the steal of the draft... no kidding... but he has some HUGE shoes to fill (Adam Morrison's)

Lakers got 2 steals in this draft, Ebanks and Caracter who are tearing up the summer league... which probably doesn't mean much right now

Steal of the draft. He will be a starter eventually. Carracter is gonna be a really nice player too. Big baby dejaun blair type.

Ebanks has tons of talent and nobody doubts that, but he was maddeningly erratic and showed not enough range for him to position himself out there

the question was do you think they look alike, not if he was a steal in the draft. yes, in that photo, they look identical

Ebanks looks like a promising young player and it is a bit eerie how he looks and plays like Ariza.. great draft pick and what a steal indeed!! :)

Ebanks was a lottery pick in the beginning of the year, so of course he was a steal... caracter was always really good but has baggage to go along with his skills...but an excellent draft for the Lake show!!!:clap:

Can't really call someone a steal before they play an NBA game, but on the topic of the thread he sure does look like him.

It's good that he's with the Lakers. They can bring him along slowly. Send him to the D-League if he needs more PT. The LIC guy will hopefully live up to the hype.

so what if we drifted from the main topic... i mean how often is there a thread on one of the better players in summer league.

ebanks and DC are awesome together in the summer league. The one guy that posted potential all star however for Ebanks is a bit of a stretch imo, but he will be a very solid role player for sure and perhaps better then Ariza. However, Not only does he look like Ariza, but he plays almost exactly like him too. He plays better off the ball, he's a high flyer dunker, great defender, but bad 3pt shooter currently (just like ariza was in the first 3 or 4 years before he went to the lakers). But just like Ariza, with some coaching and the open shots he will get on the floor with the lakers, he will definitely improve on that greatly. It's like we never lost Ariza after all :D.

DC is a total banger type of player including having that nice soft touch. He's got good post moves and a good defender as well. Pretty much, he's very solid, he just needs to get his skills more polished up. Despite being on 6'9, he can play PF and C as effectively. He's pretty much a Blair, Big Baby, or carl landry type of player.

But yes i love these 2 guys and i believe they will make the team along with Ebanks being backup SF and DC being backup C.

Also you want to know what's even scarier...Ebanks and Ariza were both picked at #43, and they both wear #3, along with being looked alike and having almost the same exact skill set. :speechless:

I don't doubt that at all. Beside Ebanks having a bigger head, you would think that they were twin brothers.

Now if only next year or the year after that the lakers can draft a kobe bryant clone :D

Ebanks and Caracter are being asked to replace Morrison and Powell. Although their production in the summer league is certainly no indication at all of how well they will do in the NBA, they can definitely be an improvement on the players they are replacing on the roster.

Same height and weight, now if hes overrated it will be the trifecta

I think they make the team. Ebanks though seems to have a twin here

watched him play yesterday. very impressive, very talented, def the steal of the draft. I really liked how this kid played and he is going to need some time, but he is an NBA starter in 2-3 years if developed properly

That kids game is niiiiiiiiiiiice! Caracter has been looking pretty solid too. Hopefully both of them make the squad and Phil, in a spirit of retiring goodwill, finally gives rookies some playing time this season!

They have similar body types, but they don't look alike really.
