Kevin Durant: The Next Chris Mullin

Longtime readers know that I loathe lazy player comparisons that rely (mainly) on race -- hell, see the post below from this morning, where I compare Hansbrough's NBA prospects to Millsap (as opposed to, say, Madsen).

Here is a fantastic comp -- derived from quality statistical analysis, no less: Kevin Durant as Chris Mullin 2.0. (Kudos to Kevin Pelton.)

The system is color blind: There is also a result that favorably links Durant to Bernard King. Kevin Durant as the love-child of King and Mullin? Love it. All KD needs is the Brooklyn accent.
