NBA Comparison: Lamar Odom

Matthew Maurer - 2/9/2007

Strengths: Versatile player whos all around ability creates mismatches for opposing teams Above average passer with great court vision to recognize open teammates Very good ball handler for his size Defensively Green does a excellent job defending players on the perimeter With his size and length he is capable of guarding a multitude of positions on the floor Unselfish player almost to a fault Shows a good post up game that Green uses to take advantage of smaller defenders Sees double teams extremely well Excellent finisher around the basket with a soft touch and springy legs Smart player who possess a high basketball IQ Moves extremely well without the ball and is a threat for backdoor alley-opps Owns tremendous body control, capable of hanging in the air and finishing after contact Decision making ability is very good, rarely does Green make mental mistakes during crucial moments in a game Excellent finisher in transition where he has the explosiveness to finish Good rebounder who does a decent job of using his arms and leaping ability to get rebounds out of position Has three point range on his jumper, an area he has improved greatly upon this year Solid attitude in his approach to the game and will be a strong locker room guy in the NBA One of those select players who possesses a feel for the game that cant be taught

Weaknesses: While improved this year, Green still isnt very comfortable shooting from the perimeter Struggles to consistently create for himself off the dribble where his moves remain undeveloped Has a tendency to force passes that arent there leading to turnovers Will need to continue to expand his comfort level in shooting from mid-range Needs to develop more of a scorers mentality at times he doesnt assert himself on offense While he possesses a great deal of small forward skills, some may consider him more of a pf Would benefit greatly by improving his overall quickness and foot speed. This would aid him greatly on defense and allow him to gain better separation from his defender offensively Defensively Green has a habit of gambling too much by reaching, leading him to pick up fouls

Aran Smith - 1/25/2006

Strengths: Extremely versatile forward with solid basketball instincts ... Many point guards lack his vision and passing ability ... Makes everyone around him better, which is rare for a forward... Has the ability to dominate a game without scoring: his rebounding, defense, and passing ability are all very strong ... Solid ball handler, doesn't over dribble ... Makes good decisions, never rushes things ... Has the ability to defend inside the post due to his long arms and great body strength ... Very strong legs ... Soft hands ... Athletic player, very explosive leaper ... Plays with good desire and intensity ... Rises to the occasion in big games as he proved in Georgetown's upset win over Duke ... Has a solid half court and full court game ...

Weaknesses: Still inconsistent with his shooting ... Lacks range on his shot ... Foot speed is average defending on the perimeter ... First step wont blow players away, but is not horrible ... A little stuck between positions, but shows enough quickness to play the 3 on the next level ... His free throw shooting must improve ...
