NBA Comparison: Robert Traylor/Glen Davis

Strengths: NBA body and strength, very skilled for his size, has a nice game facing the basket with range to the college 3-point line, good rebounder in and out of area ... Shows soft hands and can make catches in traffic ... Has good athleticism for a man his size and will surprise you with his bounce ... Can establish great position down low do to his brute strength and shows a mean streak at times and scores at will when motivated ... Skill level and feel for the game are actually at a high level. A solid passer and understands how to use pump fakes and his strength to score on longer opponents ...

Weaknesses: Character/maturity issues that date back to high school ... Was kicked off the Louisville team by Rick Pitino, after failing to show the day to day discipline to be a collegiate athlete ... Can be lazy at times and go through the motions ... Not always as active as he should be, especially down on the box ... Good but not great athlete, has good length, but not quite enough to completely compensate for being a little undersized ... Relies too much on power and strength around the basket, needs to be active on the glass on a more consistent basis, motor runs hot and cold.

Notes:
Finally put together a solid season at the college level after failing to do so at Louisville. Was once hyped up to be the next great talent. At 15 years of age he had hype surrounding him similar to a young OJ Mayo or LeBron James.Unfortunately by the time he reached college, he had stopped working hard and his skills/game had suffered considerably.

Ian Powers 6/23/10

Strengths:
Huge body, with incredible strength. Long armed shotblocker and active rebounder on both ends. ... Above-average shooter from middle and long range. ... Similar to Walker with his array of skills, as he can shoot it from outside, dribble the ball in, and has excellent passing ability. Can grab a rebound, take the ball the length of the court, dribbling through defenders, and pull up on a dime and hit a three-pointer. Excels using his strength backing defenders in, as he did to Greg Oden at the 2004 ABCD camp.

Weaknesses: Has to keep an eye on his weight, he could end up another Tractor Traylor/Hot Plate if he's not careful ... With his build he is not extremely mobile getting out on the break or getting loose balls...
