At rebounding and blocking shots, if he can stay healthy, offensively unlikely they are only few months apart in age. Right now on offense Bam is WAY ahead.
I'm not so sure of that. Bam has been healthy and has played and started far more minutes and games. Rob's also only in his third year in the league. Bam has been better featured and used by his coach hand as higher assist numbers from that combination minutes and coaching, but I've seen enough to be convinced Rob is at least Bam's equal in capability there. Already Rob is ahead of Bam by most advanced stats, including on O.
Bam has taken some 3s, but is still a career .159 beyond the arc. Rob's one career attempt from the 3 was a heave, but from the other distances, Rob's career percentages to Bam's are .809 to .723 from 0-3, .563 to .426 from 3-10, .571 to .411 from 10-16, and .294 to .307 (with Bam's edge on that last distance mostly from his higher combined frequency and percentage in this, his 4th season). My guess is that Rob will be stretched out to the 3 by next season, but is not the kind of player to take 3s until or unless he is competent at that distance.
