Re: Kenneth Faried...new Dennis Rodman?
Faried's comparison to Zach Randolph starts and ends with double doubles, and maybe being black.
Ben Wallace is like Rodman in that he was a great rebounder and great defender, who didn't score. Actual similarities are non-existent.
Kenneth Faried is a lot like Rodman, except he can rack up some points.
Now, this idea that he can't defend is just stupid. He's still raw and it's more visible due to him being undersized, but he's far from a bad defender. He's a smart defender, a very good shot-blocker already, and he makes plays on D. He hustles and has good timing. He's gonna be a great defender.
He's not the passer that Rodman was (Rodman was actually a very solid passer), but he can score.
