Not all comparisons are flattering. Derrick Coleman was supposed to be one of the great centers in the NBA, a guy whose physical tools could be paired with hard work to make a borderline unstoppable force. He got paid a lot of money at a young age, though, and that maturation never quite happened. Coleman still had a solid career, but he never neared the lofty expectations placed on him coming out of Syracuse. Something similar could be said of fellow big man Zach Randolph, who got a humongous contract extension prior to the 2004-05 season and promptly went on cruise control for about five years. He has reinvented himself in Memphis, though, salvaging a career that could have been a total disappointment.
