Not too sure about that, I think they have vastly different physical builds aside from having similar height and length. Brown's bulkier and more explosive, while Wiggins is more of a leaper and is much leaner, and it shows in their playstyles imo (Brown is much more decisive than Wiggins, he isn't as ball dominant). But the same could be said for '99 Frobe (although to a lesser extent since he had to play in a supporting role to Shaq) so I guess it's alright lol. If you out a gun to my head I'd say he's a super diluted MJ (smaller hands, worse playmaking/ballhandling/scoring and less of a leaper) with a more modern game (better shooter, more willing to play off ball), I just don't see many SG/SF guys with Jaylen's burst and stocky build in the 6'6-6'7 range.
How about Andrew Wiggins? He ain't half bad this season averaging 25.5 points on 47.3% from the field. It seems he has improved his court vision as well averaging 3.3 assists (career high) and 1.5 turnover (career low).
I think a more athletic Jimmy Butler is the best comp for him but if he was to continue growing Paul George comparison isn't out of the question in the future.I'm not sure if there's even really a comparison for him, his game is in a pretty unique spot rn. He's not good enough at passing and ballhandling to be called a Jordan type, but he's bouncier and more athletic than our modern star wings. Maybe a bulkier '99 Frobe with less isolationist tendencies and a more team-friendly+modern (but less potent self creator) game?
Yeah, the only guy I can remember that was similarly strong to JB at SG/SF was Joe Johnson, but he wasn't nearly the same athlete JB is.
He can just be the first JB
