As we have said before, Paolo Banchero had a magical rookie year in the NBA. He won Rookie of the Year and while his team struggled, he really opened some eyes. His FIBA play was similar: the team came up short but Banchero simply dazzled. He did things at 6-10 that were just amazing.
Naturally, as with all new talents, people seek someone to compare him to, but Banchero’s Orlando Magic coach, Jamahl Mosley, says that the game has changed so much that you can't really make direct comparisons anymore.
