NBA Comparison: Chris Richard

Aran Smith - 3/5/2008

Strengths: Hard nosed post player with a great work ethic ... Gets the most of his abilities ... Has shown solid improvement over his career at Kansas becoming a key player in his senior year ... Throw back, meat and potatoes, back to the basket type of post player ... Nothing flashy, does the dirty work inside: setting picks, rebounding, and banging in the post ... Has excellent strength ... Very tough, has an excellent post player demeanor ... Gives great effort and shows solid leadership ability ... Has perservered through off court tragedies and shown great strength of character ... Despite a lack of height, his above average wingspan helps him to play bigger ... Hits the boards hard, especially effective on the offensive glass ... His mid range shot, while not great has shown improvement in his senior year ... Does a good job of fighting for post position and denying his man the ball ... An average free throw shooter, who continues to improve upon it through hard work ... Has shown improvement in his post moves ... Knows his role and stays with in himself ...

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal NBA size at 6-8 playing the PF position ... Not an above the rim athlete, his upside is limited by his lack of explosiveness and sheer athletic ability ... May not have NBA athleticism, although don't bet against him. Lack of lateral foot speed hurts him when quicker players face him up ... Not a shot blocker, without much height or explosiveness, lacks much of a defensive presence ... Doesn't have a great array of moves to get open looks. Prefers to bull through defenders than go around them ... Lacks great ball handling ability. Not the type to face up and use the dribble to attack the basket ... Scores most of his points on garbage baskets around the hoop or ally oops ... Should develop a few more offensive go to moves ...

Notes: Has a perfect disposition and make up to be an NBA back up or a star in Europe at the power forward position ...
