Who's Your NBA Equivalent?

So, I've been playing a regular game lately with some guys from work, and they've been calling me "Timmy D."  Not sure if it's because I'm so damn smooth, or due to my painful lack of speed and athleticism.  Either way, I'm being compared to a future Hall of Famer, so I take it as a compliment.  And it got me thinking...

 

I'm 6' 5" and pretty much always the biggest guy on the court.  I know my role...blocked shots and rebounds, with a decent face up game from 10 feet and in.  I can hit that shot, or pump fake and put it on the floor.  If I ever take a perimeter jumper, I need to be slapped.  I can even drop a sweet, McHale-esque drop step on you from time to time.  The more I though about it, Tim Duncan is probably my exact NBA equivalent.  Except for free throws...I nail them at a much higher rate than Tim...that hack.  To be honest, I'm a less turnover-prone Darko...only right handed...and you know, kinda better.

 

So anyway, who's your equivalent?  I already have very specific ideas about some prominent CH'ers:

SnP: The undersized burly guy that does all the dirty work and can hit a J (Anthony Tolliver)

Poor Dick:  Totally soft, a spot up jump shooter, but a good one (Wes Johnson) ; )

Oceanary:  The coach on the floor, but a bit limited (Luke Ridnour)

ChuckD: Looks, acts, and talks like a player - Absolutely no game (Jonny Flynn)

Tim Allen: Bench-warming, optimistic teammate (Mark Madsen)

 

Apologies to those not mentioned.  Tell us who's game you mirror, or whose game you imagine other CH'ers have.  Doesn't have to be limited to the Wolves.  Very curious to hear people's opinions on this...should be fun.  And God knows we need something to talk about other than the team we follow.
