NBA Comparison: Kirk Hinrich (less athletic)

Joshua Motenko - 8/4/2006

Strengths: Calathes is a true point guard who continuously makes his teammates better. He runs a team like an NBA veteran. He is an exceptional passer, always putting the ball in the right place for easy baskets, and often sending passes to where his teammates should be on the floor, in a sense coaching them with each pass. He has a great shooting stroke and can hit consistently from three. He is very shifty and can get into the paint when he needs to. He plays a very composed game, and visibly pushes himself more when he makes mistakes. He was named Mr. Basketball of Florida as a junior in high school.

Weaknesses: His foot speed is solid but his athleticism is a concern. He seems to be the quintessential point guard for the college game, but it is unclear if his game translates to the NBA where he will be playing against much quicker and stronger point guards. He is very thin and needs to bulk up to really take advantage of his size. Defensively, he needs to work on staying in front of his man in one on one situations.

Notes: Younger brother of former St. Joseph's forward Pat Calathes.
