"I don't think it's fair to compare them other than the fact that they're two great jump shooters,'' Jackson said in a Wednesday afternoon telephone interview. "I would put them both up there with anybody. They're both as good a shooters as you can find. They've both got great size for shooting guards. But at the end of the day, while Klay is very good and that he can be great. But he's still has to work extremely hard to get to that level. "I just don't think it's fair to compare them now. One guy has had great moments with great teams, and another guy is working hard and looking forward to doing great things. I hope it will be fair one day to compare them.'' Despite his hesitancy, Jackson admitted that of all the young players in the league, Thompson is the one who's game is most similar to Miller's. "If you were going to say 'who is Reggie-like','' Jackson said. "It's got to be Klay. I do see some similarities. I don't think that can be debated. They're two of the all-time great shooters. Even now, Klay is in that class. Like Reggie, he has that gift. They have similar bodies and both guys are strong.''
