The 14 members of the 2012 NBA lottery are gearing up for their rookie campaigns, hoping to do all that the 2011 class did, and then some.
So, who would each member of the 2012 lottery class compare to in the 2011 class?
With only 14 players to choose from, the comparisons are not going to be very accurate on a large scale —I'll just tell you that now.
Some of the pairings are based off levels of success, while others are actually determined by playing style. All of them work, but some on an increasingly small scale.
After all, attempting to find perfect comparisons with only 14 possibilities to choose from is like trying to imitate the works of Claude Monet with only two colors on the palette. It just can't be done.
Nevertheless, here we go!
