CBB to NBA Player Comparisons: Doug McDermott

Doug McDermott's best pro comparison is without a doubt Dirk Nowitzki.  Both are jump-shooting power forwards, with fantastic range and solid rebounding ability.  The characteristic that they share that sets them both apart from the pack is their unique ability to create shots for themselves.  Their ability to create shots is inspired by their brilliantly inventive array of shot types.  From one-footed fade-aways to leaning floaters, these two never seem to be denied a shooting opportunity and their shots nearly always seem to find the bottom of the net.  Additionally, neither of them have great athleticism, but thy manage to still be productive rebounders with good instincts and technique.  McDermott will go down as one of the best players in college basketball history, and I think that whichever team takes him near the middle or end of the first round may be getting a gem of a player.
