I wanted to make a more formal post of this but I have like fifteen minutes until my next class. I was checking the box scores last night and saw Serge Ibaka had 11 blocks. Pretty Impressive. I then went to his page on NBA and was looking at his physicals - pretty similar to Tigger. Their "style" is pretty similar too. Crazy athleticism, but a lack of polish. When I checked the stats they showed that their similarity goes beyond physical measurables.
Since TT is a rookie, I think it's only fair to compare the rookie seasons of both players:
Ibaka - 6.3pts, 5.4reb (1.9 off), 1.3blk, 54%fg, 18.1mpg
Thompson - 7.2pts, 5.5 reb (2.2 off), 1.3blk, 44%fg, 18.6mpg
The stats pretty much speak for themselves here. Ibaka has an inch or two on TT, but according to NBA TT outweighs Ibaka. I would expect Thompson's offensive numbers to be better than Ibaka's in the future because of the nature of our team. (aka we don't have Kevin Durant) If Thompson can put on a bit more weight, and increase his general court awareness, Serge is definitely a 'reasonable' expectation of the player that Tigger can become.
