I think in terms of being elite collegiate players that are seen as less prominent pro prospects, they are similar, but I'm curious about that comp. Brunson was a power guard, more athletic, was the prototype Villanova post up guard. Kolek has far better court vision, is a better passer, and his inside game is based on using every millimeter of length to create difficult to contest shooting angles.

I'd love to see Kolek have a similar career path, but I don't see his game as all the similar to Brunson.
Yep, quite different players. Both get results, but the path is far different.

I don't know about "far different."

Kolek pretty regularly posted up guards he could bully; Brunson was known as a hard worker; Kolek, like Brunson, became more effective when he became a more reliable scorer; each was the heart of his successful college team and extension of his coach on the floor.

And now, both were overlooked on draft day, relegated to the second round.

Of course they aren't exact copies. Kolek is the superior passer, while Brunson has become an all-star caliber scorer. Brunson appears to have more physical strength and athletic ability - I say "appears to" because Kolek hasn't shown what he can be as a pro yet. Looking forward to it!

(SECONDS)   THREE QUARTER SPRINT
(SECONDS)   STANDING VERTICAL LEAP

What is max bench press in inches? Did I used to bench press wrong? I thought you just lift from chest (if flexible enough) to just before locking arms?

It’s repetitions. The measurement follows the skill.

Kolek signs with the Knicks. The first three years of the deal are guaranteed. I hope he's ready for those fundraising calls from MU

I don't think the full $9M is guaranteed, but that's great news for him.

Even though he is #3 PG in depth chart, I bet he moves up quickly.

the most surprising part of that article is Justin Lewis is playing for something called the Calgary Surge
