    That's what I'm saying. For the time they are given, they are both producing rather nicely. The only major difference is the passing. They even foul at the same rate.

    Darko has had more time in the league, but he is also 2 years younger and didn't get the college experience of "being the man," which would have probably helped.

    The draft position and the money... Maxiell will be making a nice chunk of change when he signs his second contract too.

    As far as the 23 per game. I hope Maxiell goes out and does it for us. It would be a spectacular improvement.

    Have to agree with this. If Darko is going to prove that he was deserving of the #2 pick, he is going to have to put up big numbers in his first real chance of playing.

    If he just puts up decent or above average #s he proves that he isn't a bust, but that Darko should have been a late lottery pick, not the #2.

    Yeah but if he doesn't show improvement isn't it still LB's fault for ruining his confidence as a young and fragile man?

    Yes, very similar indeed.

    They are even more similar if you compare him to the current Kwame (at 24 years old).
