The Best Current Comparison for Every 2012 NBA First-Round Pick
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

While every first-round pick from the 2012 NBA draft is a unique player, each member of this rookie class ends up reminding us NBA fans of a player currently rostered in the big leagues.

From Anthony Davis at No. 1 to Festus Ezeli at No. 30, comparisons are abound when looking at the playing styles of these 30 players.

Please note that these comparisons are for playing style only. They do not necessarily indicate a certain expectation of success or failure.

In other words, if I compare someone to Michael Jordan—which isn't happening because he's not a current player—it doesn't mean that I'm predicting the player will become the new greatest of all time.

It simply means that I expect athleticism, ball-dominance, well-rounded play and defensive proficiency.

Trust me, it's important that you keep that in mind. 

Let's make some comparisons.
