Either way, they are NOT the same type of player. At all. Their stats indicate this.
Because if you're going to chart development, the guy who gets a fourth year in the same level of competition is typically going to have better production than a guy who doesn't.
My point is that you cannot hold it against Hill for leaving a year early. I compared their junior year college numbers and rookie year pro numbers and proved the numbers are virtually identical. I don't see what is so "alarming" about that.
Both guys did not immediately adjust to the game. You're willing to write one of them off even though he put up identical rookie numbers to the other. I have shown you the stats, but somehow your "historical data" (which isn't even data at all btw) proves that Thomas is one of those anomalies to your "9 out of 10 bust" theory.
