    These are some pretty wild comparisons. A lot of reaching. This list gives three different comparisons for most of the players.
    Here are just a few.

    Nerlens Noel: Al Horford, Eddie Griffin, Kevin Garnett

    Mike Muscala: Dale Davis, Lamarcus Aldridge(I say K. Love);)

    Steven Adams: Roy Tarpley, Andrew Bogut

    Shabazz Muhammad: K. Azibuike, Luke Babbit?

    Glen Rice JR.: Brandon Roy

    Ricky Ledo: Francisco Garcia

    What do you guys think?

    My first thought after seeing the names in this thread "WTF."
    But the article is using a stats formula so fair enough, it's always interesting to look at results of something like that.

    I think the best Noel comparison would be Larry Sanders. I think Noel could have a similar impact as a shotblocker/defender in a couple of years.
    I don't see Garnett/Horford in him at all on the offensive end. Both of these guys have a great handle, shot and passing ability. I think Noel will stay bad at all three aspects, I just don't think he has the court vision and touch.

    haha Ben McLemore's best case scenario: Chase Budinger (accoring to that formula)

    This is one of those crappy drafts where these "so call" experts compare the players to hall of fame players, or current superstar players, yet they all turn out to be bust. This draft reminds me of the 2006 draft. Where most of the players turn out to be complete garbage.

    I see a lot of similirities with OJ Mayo, including the position, demeanor and over-hype.

    I think the Steven Adams / Andrew Bogut is a good comparison.

    Noel- Camby, Larry Sanders type of player.

    McLemore- Jason Richardson

    Otto Porter- Tayshaun Prince, Trevor Ariza

    Bennett- Paul Milsap

    Oladipo- Best case: Iggy / Worst case: Tony Allen

    Rockets would be crazy passing on Muscala if he's still around
