I consider a good comparison to be a player that you could see the younger player eventually resembling in their prime, unless we are discussing two players with similar NBA experience. I don't think Russell will ever resemble Miller due to how much he relies on his jumpshot. If Miller could shoot, his entire game likely changes so imo it's a weird comparison to make.
I think Andre Miller can be a decent comparison, actually. I see much of the same court-vision and craftiness that Miller had, despite being a below-the-rim type of PG. I just think that Russell's size and insane length combined with his shooting gives him far more upside. If Miller was 6'5'' with a had a near 6'10'' wingspan and a 3pt shot he'd be a multiple all-star.
Maybe we just have different views on what a good comparison is. Agree to disagree, I guess.
