    I thought it was an awesome moment. There are a lot of similarities in their style of play and leaping ability . I think it’s more than just comparing white player to white player.

      It’s more than comparing them because he’s white. I think there is an actual physical resemblance.

      I thought it was a great moment too! How awesome would it have been if one of the other guards came out wearing 15 with some goggles? Oh yeah, baby!

    It was a good moment but Rex would have easily knocked down those dunks.

      Yes. Rex was maybe a little higher flyer

      For those of us that watched Rex it’s definitely true that while Tyler has good jumping ability, he certainly doesn’t have the very exceptional high flying ability of “the boy king”. However in all other aspects their games have great similarities with Tyler seemingly being a better shooter. But I think what makes them most similar is that both are total ballers and total naturals on the hardwood!

      Rex could jump higher.

      But Herro is a better outside shooter. I think.

      If so, I’d rather have the better shooter.

      Rex was a pretty good 3 point shooter also as I remember.

    Ummm, similiar styles of play maybe? Maybe Jamal Murray maybe but a higher point of release on their shots.

    Tyler ain’t no Rex Chapman when it comes to leaping ability and dunking. Not even close. However , he may be a more accurate shooter.

    chapman was an excellent shooter. 40% from three, years 86-88. he played high school ball with no 3 pointer and the line wasn’t even fully integrated by the ncaa until 1986. dude’s game was way ahead of his time. most people are either clueless or hate on him nowadays because of the news stories.
