better D and positional versatility over Paolo, and a better physical profile than Chet.

Well that’s the thing. Chet is clearly number one for me because of his high end skillset which is the best right now.

I’m less concerned about his physique now. I’ll watch it closely on Saturday when the game comes on but 7ft T prince body composition is fine. It’s the advanced level that separates him.

SF/PF into C on minutes is a very very high end player.

Really Clyde? I don’t see it could be wrong. But Chet is just about the real deal holyfield.

never said I'd take JSR over Chet/Paolo now, just that it might be coming, specifically want to see more playmaking/passing chops as an inside-out guy from him first, passing out of DTs, etc.

He reminds me of Shane Battier.

Shane was never as smooth and fluid of an athlete as Jabari is.

Jabari may be slightly more athletic but both have an intelligent feel for the game, smooth shots, good hands, smart defenders.

But you are right, you can always find slight differences between two players but doesn't make the comparison incorrect or wrong.

Physically he looks a ton like Rashard Lewis.

Agreed. Very similar builds. He seems to have a more diverse game than Rashard. Looks a lot more capable off the dribble and in between.
