 Paul Milsap

Height no shoes 6' 6.25" 258 pounds 7' 1.5" wingspan 8'9" SR

Yabu
Measured in the Summer of 2015 at 6'7" without shoes, 7'1.5" wingspan and 8'9" standing reach.


 So there body's are very similar. Both viewed as undersized scoring forwards with plus Athleticism and shooting ability and extra strong.

 Milsap turned out to be a great defender he's worlds better than Yabu but probably a better best case scenario than Draymond Green. Yabu will never be Green, but he could be poor man's Milsap.

 You don't think it's a better, maximum upside comparison than Draymond Green? That one always perplexed me. Totally different players.

Let's wait on the Millsap comps until Yabu shows signs of actually, you know, being good at basketball.

Maybe until he actually cracks the Celtics rotation for more than garbage time?

A more apt Yabu comparison for me is the bottom of the ocean because we know little how Yabu will do against NBA regulars as we do about the bottom of the ocean.

KGLL was simply pointing out a best case scenario for Yabusele and showing comparisons in their builds, not saying he is definitely the next Millsap. Draymond was always far-fetched since he is a defensive savant with incredible passing ability.

If everything went right for Yabusele, I see Millsap as a more suitable comparison than Draymond. Again, if everything went exactly right.

That 6-8 bulky body with a perimeter orientated game. Matchup problem with perimeter skills at PF and too big for SFs. Both bad defensive players. Lack awareness defensively. Sub-par passers & so-so rebounders. Most of their value comes from scoring.

Needs to improve his shot-creation to be as good as Kleiza though.

The fly in the ointment here is does he have the speed to get by the guys when they follow him out on the perimeter.  So far, I do not see elite speed though he is light on his feet he still has to move that bulk around peeps which is a challenge in itself.

If guys can stay in front of him, we are in trouble with him.   Because he does not have elite lift, you just can't hurl guys to the floor when you want to do so.
