Career Comps for Andray Blatche

Just did a quick search at Basketball Reference looking for players with a similar career profile to Andray Blatche.

The parameters — 6-10 or taller, through 6 seasons has an offensive rating of 101 or lower (Blatche is at 100); a usage rate of 22 or higher (Blatche: 22.7); at least 2,000 career minutes.

Here’s the list:

  • Ralph Sampson
  • Jermaine O’Neal
  • Herb Williams
  • Andray Blatche
  • Isaac Austin
  • Chris Anstey
  • Alaa Abdelnaby
  • Sharone Wright
  • Predrag Drobnjak
  • Doug Smith
  • Acie Earl
  • William Bedford
  • John Amaechi

The only guy to get excited about is O’Neal, but Jermaine was a good rebounder (Blatche isn’t) and a terrific defender who actually made the All-NBA team in his 6th, 7th and 8th seasons.

Unfortunately, Blatche is a lot more like the other schlubs on the list.
