Basketball Prospectus did math to arrive at pro comps for tomorrow's draftees

These comparisons are based on factors including height, weight, minutes per game, and percentage stats for shooting, rebounding, and defense.  Couple of the big names include Kyrie Irving to Derrick Rose, Jimmer to JJ Redick (yawn), and Bismack Biyombo to Sean Williams (which somehow seems fair).  Most staggering are some of the comps for the Euros coming over (check out Valanciunas' unbelievable pro equivalent and the rest at the article here).

For guys who might hop into some blue and orange whenever we have games: Nikola Vucevic comped to Troy Murphy, Iman Shumpert to Ronnie Brewer, Kenneth Faried to Paul Millsap, and Darius Morris to Deron Williams (wha wha whaaaat?) Anybody who clicked the link buy into these comps?  Anyone have a change of heart about "their guy"?  It's an interesting article with some conversation starting comparisons.  Some of them are plausible, others are absurd, but I think the message to take away from all of this, is the draft cannot come soon enough.
