NBA Comparison: Charles Oakley

Aran Smith - 12/29/2007

Strengths: Bruising bigman with a raw, unpolished game but shows a great deal of potential with his soft touch, size, strength and explosiveness ... Hes 6-10 but plays bigger with long arms and excellent leaping ability Highly aggressive, loves to dunk on guys and really enjoys playing physical ... His attitude is one of his biggest positives. He can get angry and emotional, but that actually helps His game and does not hurt it. He is not foul prone either. he likes to get rough, can do the dirty work and shows passion ... Shows a soft shooting touch from the line at close to 70% which is a good sign that his offensive game can further develop. He's a good mid-range shooter and he displayed a nice variety of offense moves Considering his lack of experience playing the game at a high level, his (natural) feel for the game is very good Hes a quality passer for a bigman, recognizing double teams and finding the open man has a good set of hands, catches the ball well, and secures the ball well on rebounds with his strong arms and sure hands

Weaknesses: He needs to keep developing his feel for the game and all around skills, but in particular his post skills Right now he is very poor at putting the ball on the floor, so getting better at knowing how and when to use the dribble to create shots without exposing the ball is key Does not run the floor well and lacks great foot speed ... Hes very limited facing the basket and better with his back to the basket Still needs a bit of work on his stamina. He can only play stretches before his great size and lack of experience catch up with him and he needs a breather Working on conditioning will help him to become more consistent from game to game. He's above 280 right now and would be most effective at around 270 ...

Notes: Considered by International scouts as a potential late first rounder for the 2008 draft ... Jawai is averaging 18 and 10 in his first season of professional basketball (in the Australian league)
