Aldridge averaged 9 points in his rookie year
Roy averaged 17 points in his rookie year

Evans averaged 20 in his rookie year
Cousins will likely average 10-13 points

I don't think Evans will ever be as good as Roy, but Cousins should end up being better than Aldridge if he can keep his head straight. So maybe?

as an unbiased fan...I actually think that Evans/Cousins will be better than Roy/Alridge. Evans is T-Nasty...but that being said the Blazers are gonna be really good with Wes Matthews coming over, plus being in the CP3 Trade Sweepstakes you never know...

PG:CP3
SG:Roy
SF:Matthews
PF:Oden
C:Alridge

only thing i see that's bad with that is that Oden is injury concern along with Roy and Paul...but still never the less...

TyFreak is amazing. There the next Roy and Aldridge in the sense that their a young Guard, Big Man combo yes. Cousins is gonna be a better rebounder than LMA and TyFreak's gonna barrel his way to the basket, I expect this duo to be much more physical.

alridge is a faceup jumpshooter. roy is well balanced player. evans is a slasher penetrator, who cant shoot, and cousins is a guy who plays inside doesnt want to shoot outside. no real simiarities

So much fail in this post... First off oden is the starting center... second i doubt that mathews starts.... and what exactly did the blazers give up to get paul?

As far as the actual thread, I think that they will be better overall then LA and Roy. They do have a different style though. Cousins seems to be more of a post scorer then LA. Where as tyreke tends to be more of a slasher then a shooter like roy. Also note that they play separate positions...

I think they'll be much better because Tyreke will be a beast next year.

roy is nice..but i think tyreke will continue to develop into his own and be an amazing player. im not very high on LA and believe cousins can be a much better player..he hasnt even played an nba game yet tho..so it is very soon to draw conclusions.

pg vs sg and pf vs c

It works.
Evans is likely to end up playing sg. Similar to Wade who made that transition in his second year I think. And the difference in pf and center is fairly minimal in today's league. You should know that as well as anyone with Tim Duncan.

Aldridge averaged 9 points in his rookie year
Roy averaged 17 points in his rookie year

Evans averaged 20 in his rookie year
Cousins will likely average 10-13 points

Good comparison. They very well could be. Cousins could be much better than Aldridge and Roy might be a little bit better than Evans.

i thought i read they wanted to keep evans a pg. even so, id compare evans and cousins to a cp3/chandler

I think Evans will be better the Roy in a couple of years. That kid can ball.

Didn't he make the full adjustment to SG at the end of the season?
I can't see him playing PG. He fits better in the SG position.

Good comparison for Roy and Evans. However, COUSINS will be a much better player than Aldridge.

maybe, i probably am wrong. i dont usually follow the kings since i never see any games of theirs out here in iowa.

Tyreke could be better than Roy, but I doubt it. Cousins should definitely end up being better than LA.

I dont thinks so. I dont believe that Evans will be as good as Roy, not really close IMO. We dont know what Cousins can do yet, but Lamrcus, can get a double double on any given night. The answer for me in No.

this is the dumbest thread ever, u make it sound like roy and aldridge have done something in the nba and is an elite combo.. but nope they havent done anything so why would u compare 2 guys that have done nothing? do u think evens and cousins are gonna be average at best and 8th seed material??

NO, because Aldridge is soft, like it or not. the guys a talented player, but he isnt going to be what cousins scould be.

Cousins actually can shoot the ball out to 20 feet. Offensively Cousins is pretty much going to be able to do it all if he pans out. And if Tyreke ever learns how to shoot, then he's better than Brandon Roy. He already averaged 20 6 and 5 as a 20 year old rookie with no jumper.

Wrong.wrong.wrong. Tyreke is our PG for the next 15 years, nothing gonna change that

Lolpost. All B-roy has on Reke is the jumper RIGHT NOW. Tyreke is superior at everything else

Tyreke is a beast. To me he's like a Wade 2.0, Cousins is a total ? imo.

This is a joke right? I sure hope for your sake it is.

who are roy and aldridge to be compared to? whatve they ever done?
i think imo roy is vastly overrated but you cant deny his numbers. but the guy isnt a top perimeter guy(bron,pierce.kobe,wade,durant)

evans & cousins will be the first evans and cousins. evans in one rookie yr has equal numbers to roy

No. Evans will be very good but he won't be as good as Roy. If they Evans at SG he could be very similar butI thin he actually makes a better PG.

If cousins gets his weight down ahla Kendrick Perkins when he was drafted. Though he has an indeed shot Cousins has crazy upside alot better then what perk had when he was drafted. You can't teach height and the weight if molded right ASK SHAQ!

And Evens he will be just fine what did he avg 20-5-5? blah blah. Yea I know it was the Kings he still was in the west and had to bust some ankles. Hey may turn out to be that new age PG?
