I think Kirilinko and Marion could be compared. Each high rebouding small fowards with shaky outside shots. Kirilinko is a better defender, but they both get lots of blocks and steals as well as assists.

I think Marion may be the closest player to AK. Matrix is more athletic, but AK is a little taller and is very long, which helps him create all of those turnovers. They are both very good on defense and rebounding. Now that Harpring is out, we'll see if AK can become the go-to guy on offense.

Ginobili is the closest thing to a Jordan/Kobe/T-Mac kind of shooting guard that has been produced outside of the USA. He's a lot different of course. But you can make the comparison.

the only one in the league right now can possibly draw to that kind of conclusion is "SHAQ", no one can play with his kind of style because no one has such a combination of athleticsm and strength, hands down, no comparison.

Not in the league now, but, in my opinion, Sean Elliott is a very close comp for Ginobili. A versatile, athletic swingman who's very good on defense. Not a superstar talent, but a very good player and a championship-caliber piece.

I can sorta see it, but I don't consider Ginobili tall for a SG at all. I would say he is just the right height.

In my opinion, Ginobili is almost a new breed of player. He is so different from what we are used to getting from overseas. I think it's a beautiful thing and I hope to see more like him.

I think a comparison for Manu could be Christie. They are about the same size, are good defenders, and have a balanced game.

Another comparison for Ginobili is Brent Barry. Brent's a better shooter, easily, but in terms of playmaking, athletic ability, energy, etc. I think they are a similar type of player.

I absolutely hate this comparision. Pippen, in his day, was perhaps the smoothest perimeter player in the league. He was an excellent ball-handler and spent the majority of his minutes at the point.

Kirilenko just dosen't have that type of game. He dosen't move well enough... or perhaps he just moves differently. He can make some solid plays outside, and is a solid 3-point shooter, but most of his points come in the paint. He can't consistantly bring the ball up court or be put into a position where he's the primary ball-handler/playmaker... And those two aspects of his game are what makes Scottie a top 50 player of all time.
