Default 2008 Draft Players NBA Comparisons

OJ Mayo - I would compare him to a Dwyane Wade with a 3pt shot or a Gilbert Arenas just bigger and stronger

Derrick Rose - Dwyane Wade

Michael Beasley - Carmelo Anthony or a Tracy Mcgrady

Nicolas Batum - Rudy Gay

Donte Greene - Rashard Lewis

Eric Gordon - Mitch Richmond http://aol.nba.com/playerfile/mitch_richmond/

Darren Collison - Kevin Johnson

Chase Budinger - ???

Hasheem Thabeet - Dikembe Mutombo but with a stronger body

Darrell Arthur - Antonio McDyess

Kosta Koufos - Mehmet Okur

Jerryd Bayless - Gilbert Arenas

Danilo Gallinari - Peja Stojakovic

You just let everyone know you are pretty young. McDyess used to be an athletic freak. He was one of those Amare Stoudemire/Dwight Howard types that got by on athleticism until an injury forced him to develope a game.

No way in the world is OJ bigger/stronger than Arenas.

I've only seen these guys twice so my outlook is subject to change over the next year.

OJ Mayo - Ben Gordon

Derrick Rose - Omar Cooke (I have not been wow'ed by Rose)

Nicolas Batum - looks like he'll become a Josh Smith type

Chase Budinger - JR Smith (I guess Dan Majerle if we have to match skin tones)

Hasheem Thabeet - Samuel Dalembert

I'm feeling the Derrick Rose comparison.

Donte Green can't stroke the 3 like Rashard.

So this is going to be like the best class ever? You have like 50+ All-Star games in one class. I'd say maybe 2 or 3 of those guys have careers close to the guys they are compared to.
