You shouldnt say that. Not if you want anyone to take your posts seriously.

So tell me. What other explosive forward in the nba is able to drive past his man in an iso situation and dish off to the open man under the basket? Who does this remind you of?

He reminds me of Winslow. With better court sense and worse defense. More explosiveness, less strenght.

Before the season Jackson was known as someone with great ability in all dimensions of basketball, except shooting he sucked majorly. This is no small flaw.

But, I just checked his stats today and his 3 point shooting is now at 32.7%. Not good, but improved over his earlier numbers.

If he can really shoot, then he might go number one in the draft.

This bears watching.

Ah. A more explosive, weaker Justice Winslow is actually a really good comp. I loved Winslow out of Duke. Still think hes gonna be a really nice player.

They guy Jackson reminds me of the most is Terrence Williams+ an inch or two and way improved finishing ability around the rim.

Jackson could be a star. He could feasibly even be a superstar. Lebron James? please.

Agree it's all about his shot.  With a good one he's number 1.  With a below average one he's around pick 4.

How does a Jackson to Winslow comparison make sense?

Winslow is like 6'5. He can dunk in space. Lots of space. Jackson is an explosive freak.  Winslow dreams one day he can handle/drive by his man like Jackson.

Compare Winslow to Smart or Crowder. Not Jackson

In fairness, he's not an explosive freak. Gerald Green is. T-max was. Carter was. Lebron was. Wiggins is.

Jackson is not on that level, although he will be a good athlete compared to other NBA players.

It's a good dunk, but it's not the same as those other guys. When you realize that he has a funky jumpshot and he is not as good of a shooter as those other (more athletic) guys I listed at the same age, it seems like he has a lower ceiling than some of the other guys.

Its a nice dunk and he is a very good athlete, but comparing him to Lebron James is insulting to one of the two greatest players of all time.

Let me ask you. How did anybody know Lebron was going to turn out to be this good?

Just by watching HS ball??  There are many High Schoolers that look every bit as impressive as Lebron prior to College ....

My point is, nobody knew KG was going to turn out like he did or Lebron turn out like he did

I'm not saying Jackson will be good as Lebron.... I even said a thinner version (which is not as powerful as the man beast version).  But Jackson and Lebron do share several similarities. Ball Handling, Passing, versatile defense to name a few.  And both are not sharpshooters .... Lebron has turned into a semi decent shooter in the recent 5 years since the start of his career

I would like to compare Jackson to another player...but there are none.  He is not really like Leonard.  Certainly not like Matt Barnes.   If you can name a more accurate player to compare Jackson to, I will take that

again watch these two plays and tell me, this is not Lebronesque.  And in addition which other forwards in the league can pull this off in crunch time.

I would not be disappointed if we took him third after Ball and Fultz.

Lebron was probably the most hyped player of the past 30 years.

I would advise you not to compare him to anyone if the best comp you can come up with is Lebron. Jackson is a good passer, but hes not the brilliant mind James is. At 19 years old James put up an a/to ratio of 5.9:3.5 in the NBA.  Jackson is 3.1:2.5 in college.

Lebron is also far more explosive.

So yeah, the Lebron comp is good if you restrict it to athleticism handle and passing, then acknowledge that Lebron was much better at passing and was a much better athlete.

then its a fine comp.

Jimmy Butler is perhaps a better comparison, but even that seems a bit strained. When you compare a 19 year old kid to Lebron James you make yourself look foolish.

I like Jackson a lot, but I wouldnt compare anyone in the last 10 drafts, to Lebron James.

I love how people knock Jackson's competition but praise Fultz in a much worse conference.

But lets not crown Jackson as the next Lebron yet.
