NBA Comparison: Fred Jones/Antonio Daniels

Borko Popic - 5/13/2008

Strengths: Versatile and tremendously strong combo-guard Fine athlete, possessing a nice wingspan A southpaw Stat-sheet filler, able to consistently contribute in 4 categories Built like a tank, knows how to use his body to create separation on the perimeter and space in the paint In constant attack mode and is willing to go at help defenders aggressively Very crafty scorer, utilizes hesitation, crossover and in-and-out dribbles to get his defender off-balance before going by Has the stereotypical shooting form of a lefty, even though he slings it a bit, it is still smooth Incorporates a nice step-back jumper, to go along with his reliable midrange game When he gets hot, he will pull up from anywhere, and his quick release and nice elevation allow him get his shot off against virtually anyone His body comes into play on the defensive end as well, where he can use his strength and length to legitimately defend PGs, SGs and SFs He has great anticipation allowing him to track down numerous rebounds; we have seen him regularly average around 7 rebounds, which is a nice attribute for a player at his position

Weaknesses: While he has a variety of tools at his disposal, he does not have a niche or one thing in particular that he does great Lacks the quickness and overall distributing ability for a PG at the next level, and is undersized for a SG, although his frame and length should offset the size deficiency While he is fairly unselfish, his questionable decision making and limited court vision hurt his chances of being a floor general/playmaker Has epitomized the definition of inconsistency throughout his time in college Terrible shooting games, combined with high turnover numbers bring into question his focus and preparation The release and follow-through on his shot are inconsistent, resulting in sporadic shooting performances, and also being the main cause to his struggles at the charity stripe His ability to create and finish with his right hand is very limited, and he seems to lack confidence in his off-hand when pressured Even though he has good leaping ability, his height - or lack thereof - substantially hurts him when finishing around the basket; he rarely gets an easy lane to the hoop, instead he is always forced to attempt an acrobatic move, which he struggles to convert at times Can become very lackadaisical on the defensive end, falling asleep on the weakside as well as not showing much determination in chasing over or fighting through screens

Notes: Has been named a 2nd team All-American by numerous outlets following his Junior year
