NBL To NBA Comparisons

Think this could be a fun topic. So if there was an NBL player that was like an NBA player who would they be? Like for example who's the Michael Jordan of the NBL, and vis versa.
Any ways here are some of the ones that I thought of, what are some of the ones that you guys can think of.

Andrew Gaze= Michael Jordan
Josh Childress = Lebron James (without the flops)
Shane Heal = Steve Nash (Don't get to mad at this one, this is just thought so don't go posting oooh that doesn't make sense and all that stuff)

Jesse Wagstaff and Shawn Redhage = Lebron James, just for the flopping

Brett Rainbow-Harold Miner is a good one.

I think Gaze is more Reggie Miller than Michael Jordan.

There are few real NBL to NBA comparisons, although I do think Delly is like Brad Robbins. (Yes I know he is an ex NBL player)

Nash is one of the best PGs ever in the League. Brett Maher one of the greatest SGs ever in the NBL.... I can see the comparison?

Willie Farley is the closest thing the NBL has seen to a Michael Jordan type of player.

I'm not talking about credentials.

I'm talking mannerisms on the basketball court.

I dare say Willie looked more like Michael than Kobe does.

When you realise what you are seeing, it iss a sight to see.

Gaze as Reggie Miller? Miller never stopped talking on Court . He was the trash master, was Gaze ever talkative on Court?

I remember this one time he brutally posterised Cecil Exum with a fast break dunk and he let him know all about it afterwards.

Any white player- Delly (slow, unathletic, high effort levels)

Fair call - but Ryan Anderson is a good rebounder as well as knock down shooter.
