Lotto Player comparisons.. digging in the crates


Rather than compare current players to this years draft crop I am curious to see who from the past might best compare to this years likely lottery picks. I've separated it by position, and to be honest, do not know a ton about a lot of these guys - this is why I am curious to see who disagrees with my calls and what better comparisons exist. I made an effort to drum up some names not used about these guys. Why do this? Because the draft feels oh so far away.

disclaimer - given the way the game has changed, some guys are going to be compared to players who perhaps did not play the same position.

disclaimer 2 - guys I know nothing about I did not bother adding - feel free to do so

disclaimer 3 - not saying they will have the same career - focus is more on style of play, body type and strengths and weaknesses they have in common

Centers:

Drummond - Alonzo

Zeller - Kevin Willis (t-rex arms)

Meyers - Rik Smits (dunking dutchman!)

Henson - Ralph Sampson

PFs:

Davis - Kareem (yeah, I said it)

Robinson - Derrick Coleman

Sullinger - Chris Gatling

Jones the 3 - Tim Thomas (is he still in the league?)

Terrence Jones - Larry Johnson

Royce White - Antoine Walker

SFs

MKG: Sprewell (in his prime)

Barnes: George Gervin

Shooting Guard

Beal -Joe Dumars

Lamb - Michael Cooper

Rivers - Jeff Hornacek

PG

Lillard - Kevin Johnson

Marshall - Mark Price

let the arguments commence...
