You never saw Jerome play? Dude was a warrior. He was much thicker then Tyrus. He focused on defense, rebounding and scrapping all over the court. He had very little skill and a lot of heart.
Tyrus is much skinnier then Jerome. His shot is a little bit better and his blocking instincts are miles better then Jerome, other then that he isn't the rebounder or hustler that Jerome was. I'm not sure if he'll ever be as a effective on the glass either.
Jerome is a unique player, he might not put up double digit numbers, but he played good D, he hustled, he rebounded, and he has alot of heart.
Well i slightly agree with you on that one. You see lots of teams have players that do those exact things for them. They are just not well known players, and that's why it is hard to compare Jerome to them.
