2012-13 Jon Rothstein Comparisons

Last year, a random compilation of player comparisons tweeted by friend of the website and college basketball insider Jon Rothstein ended up becoming the most-viewed piece in our four-year history.  How did we capitalize on this success, you might ask? Well, we've been keeping track of Rothstein's analogies once again, because there is just so much (no pun intended) to go around.
