Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins recently unloaded a lofty comparison on Jaren Jackson Jr., saying in The Athletic that "his impact could somewhat be" at the level of Giannis Antetokounmpo "as a two-way player." 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander joins me to discuss this probably insane comment, to talk about what Jackson Jr. needs to improve (hint: rebounding), and to hit the things the 20-year-old already does extremely well.

Then, we take a trip back to the 2004-05 season to revisit peak Larry Hughes and Gilbert Arenas in Washington, Allen Iverson and Chris Webber teaming up in Philly, a first-round performance from Brad Miller???!! and a dominant seven games from Metta World Peace (then known as Ron Artest).
