So many journalists and fans love asking of college players, "Who's this guy gonna be at the next level?" I've heard people call Derrick Williams Andre Iguadala with a jumper. Or Sullinger is the next Carlos Boozer with a meaner streak. And Jimmer is whatever white guy people can think of that had a successful college career but busted in the pros.
Is it so hard to consider that a given player might be totally unique? No two guys bring the same combination of physical skills, style of play and mental makeup.
Why are people so obsessed with this?
