or do you wanna say positional/athleticism differences completely negate that? Inform me @Osh Kosh Bosh

AK-47 couldn't shoot really, and was an elit passer, thats the opposite of KP who isn't a passer but can shoot well for his size. They aren't really similar besides being pale alien like facial features.

Another forced white guy comparisons. Big part of Pau's game is elite passing, and post up skills, which he had at a young age, niether of which KP has.
THe obvious comparison is staring everyone right in the face.

- Jump shot reliant, but not quite lights out shooters - check.
- oversized PF - check
- Rebounded and defended better than anyone expected early - check

Taller Lamarcus Aldridge. People forget Lamarcus was considered a soft jumpshooter at texas, very similar to way people talked about Porzingis, many thought he was risky pick with some bustability in him.
