Jalen Rose’s contribution to the 2015 NBA Draft coverage was to make comparisons between the draft picks and current or former players. Some of his comparisons were ok, but the majority of them were just dumb. For instance, did you know that it takes a lot of confidence to wear some of the things Chandler Parsons wears? Jalen compared Mario Hezonja to him.

Even NBA players were wondering what the hell he was talking about.
