Pistons Rookie Reveals Which NBA Star That He Looks Up To

The Detroit Pistons may not have won many games last season, but at least they got to keep adding solid talent to their core of players.

They got G-League standout Ron Holland in the first round of the NBA Draft, and while the fit might be questionable to some, he’s clearly very talented.

Recently, he sat down with NBA legend Kevin Garnett, who asked him who would be his ideal role model to mold his game after and mentor him in today’s game (via Pistons Talk & The Player’s Tribune).

Surprisingly, instead of going with the usual names or the most prominent players in the league, he went with Jaylen Brown instead.

Holland claimed that he feels like their games are eerily similar, adding that Brown has kept adding more things to his repertoire, which is something he respects and wants to emulate.

He also praised him for stepping up on the defensive side of the floor, which is something he also wants to do.

Notably, this comparison is not far-fetched at all.

Holland is a much better ball-handler than Brown when he first entered the league, but he’s got a similar body type and game.

He’s also a solid shot-blocker for his position and not much of a three-point shooter, and they’re both athletic and solid players in transition.

Holland will most likely be the starting small forward in Detroit, with either Ausar Thompson or Jaden Ivey joining Cade Cunningham in the backcourt, and they could be a very fun team to watch in 2024.
