The Name Game

Tim Buckley (Deseret News via TrueHoop) had a column today about how everyone plays The Name Game with draft prospects. After all, you have to compare them to someone, right? Here is who I think some of the prospects will turn out like:

Michael Beasley = Antawn Jamison/Shawn Marion
Derrick Rose = Deron Williams/Allen Iverson/Kevin Johnson/Earl Monroe
O.J. Mayo = Gilbert Arenas/Steve Francis
Brook Lopez = Pau Gasol/Zydrunas Ilgauskas
Jerryd Bayless = Ben Gordon/Jay Williams
Kevin Love = Elton Brand/Karl Malone/Bill Laimbeer/Wes Unseld
Anthony Randolph = Charlie Villanueva
Eric Gordon = Michael Redd/Upgraded version of J.R. Smith
Danilo Gallinari = Toni Kukoc
DeAndre Jordan = Jerome James
D.J. Augustin = T.J. Ford (yeah, it's almost too easy, but it fits)
Russell Westbrook = Kenny Smith/John Starks
Joe Alexander = Josh Smith-lite
Brandon Rush = Eddie Jones/James Posey
Marreese Speights = Al Jefferson-lite
Chris Douglas-Roberts = Morris Peterson/Jerry Stackhouse-lite
Roy Hibbert = Eddy Curry

BallHype: hype it up!
