I think you need some time to anazyle this really, but the ROY was a good start, he was extremely solid... and is not gonna be a center, if that pans out, that would make this a above average draft in my feeling, as noticed centers are hard to acquire... and 1 center can make a difference.

All the others are good comparisons, including the Nene - Hakeem one. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Oh, please, his name is Detlef Schrempf. :eek:

I would compare Jared Jeffries to Rashard Lewis, just without the shooting touch. Watch this footage by HoopsTV.

Butler's stroke is much cleaner than Bonzi's, IMO. Also, I consider Bonzi a stronger post player than either Butler or Pierce. I'm sticking to my guns on this one.

His shot was very clean. No excess motion in his stroke. He played lose D, but good D. He was very good at forcing his oponent to make jump shots. He never got beat of the dribble. He wasn't a very heady player, but he somehow wound up in the right place at the right time. I see alot of him in Butler.

Frank Williams - Sydney Moncrief

I am going to have to say that is an awful comparison. Sydney was a beast.

I think the Theus comparison was being made to Butler., not Jeffries. They somehow compared Jeffries to Reggie Lewis. I am still trying to figure that one out as well.

These four made my head hurt. Rick Barry and Dunleavy? Please explain because I don't see it. Jones and Haislip play totally different games, and Terry Porter was more like Frank Williams than Dixon.

Oh, and the worst of all... Frank Williams couldn't carry Moncrief's jock in a suitcase!

All of those comparisons were Poormans comparisons otherwords, not exactley but a much lesser effective one, Now Dunleavy has a lot of what Rick Barry had Sans the attitude, nice pull up jumper,use of good ball fakes, knack for being in the right place at the right time and lastly good passers, Now Haislip is exactly like Jones both are athletic both are very raw no really tangible developed skills, both are 6'8 -6'9 both are streak shooters not really consistent, both will ride the pine though Haislip may get a tad more run Haislips not a bigman he's a forward. Dixon is more like a Cassell to me but I thought that might be a reach, but he's like Porter in that he has some pg skills though not prototypical, he can play the two, they both can hit the three and they both are smart and determined, not alike body type wise but both undersized sg's in reality. Dixon will be a steady long time NBA player,

Now I'll concede that comparing Williams to Moncrief is a stretch but comparing Williams to Porter is equally a stretch, I think Williams can be a defensive factor get lots of steals and control a team but there's not really a good comparison for williams.

Mark my Words you'll hear them comparing Dunleavy to Barry before long ,hell they compare Dunleavy to Bird I think that is a stretch and NBA DRAFt.net did that, Dunleavy was drafted that high to be that good and I have a hunch he will.

From what I saw in the summer leagues, Dunleavy will be a fine NBA player. I read an article in SI that showed the war room of the Cavs during the draft. They were high on Dunleavy and wer offering Miller and their pick for DJr. The Warriors of course turned that down. That would be great if Dunleavy becomes a player even close to Barry and Bird. Hopefully the after effects of the Webber-Nelson era are over. :p
