NBA Comparison: Hedo Turkoglu

Strengths: Birsen is a very talented player; despite his young age, he shows a natural feel for the game ... He plays like a point forward with great playmaking ability for others ... He can do everything on the basketball court: he is tall, skinny, elegant and well balanced ... His long arms, along with his ability to box-out the opponent, make him a great rebounder ... He is not a one-man show, he is a very altruistic player, with good basketball vision to pass the ball ... Birsen is right handed, but uses the left hand with great confidence, finding cutters and teammates for easy baskets ... He has good footwork, that he uses to beat the defenders less agile than him ... On the defensive end, he shows a great attitude and good understanding and technique ...

Weaknesses: The first aspect that he needs to improve is his shot: the technique is not perfect, but most of all he has to use his legs more, in order to give a better trajectory on his shot ... His greatest defect is the position of the body, which is too erect, which slows down his movements. Another aspect that needs to improve is the physical strength: he must add muscles to his upper body which will increase his leaping ability ... He is not a natural (vocal) leader, and sometimes he appears too soft, needs to be a little more fiery ... Needs to improve his game and his mental strength; but he is really young, has great talent and has all the time to improve and be a star in the future ...

Notes: Full name is James Metecan Birsen.
