SHABAZZ! Napier is not Khald El-Amin.

We know this because they have two different names. Also, they are two different people.

However, after Coach Cal compared the two earlier this month, SHABAZZ!, a hyped incoming freshman, and Khalid, world-shocker and Ukranian basketball champion, have often been compared to each other. 

Problem is, they are not the same person. 

To illustrate this point, here is a handy chart:
