NBA Comparison: Bo Outlaw

Bobby Palumbi - 2/16/2006

Strengths: Has great strength and agility, one of the most explosive leapers in the college game, he can leap out of the building ... Very energetic, competes hard ... Good shot blocker, he positions himself well on the defensive end to alter shots and grab rebounds Plays with a high level of intensity ... Takes high percentage shots, lots of put-backs and tip ins Can throw down some nasty dunks Runs the floor well, good agility ... Considered a good character guy ... Should be able to become a good role player as a rebounding shot blocker who brings energy off the bench ...

Weaknesses: Extremely raw offensively, he has no offensive game at all Fundamentals are lacking ... Relies purely on his athleticism for his points, all of which come on garbage tip-ins and put-backs within 5 feet of the basket ... Gets to the line a lot, but is a poor free throw shooter, only converting 54% this year (down from previous years) . Lacks the dribble drive ability to create his own shot No midrange game Defensively, not a good on ball defender, takes too many bad fouls, no discipline ... Must work on limiting foul problems Grabs rebounds with poor technique (this is a key area for him to focus on) Is able to succeed at this level only because of his raw athleticism ... Must cut down on turnovers ... A bit undersized at 6-8, but his long arms and athleticism make up for it ... Lacks a great feel for the game ... Lacks great touch, especially outside 5 feet from the basket ...

Notes: Declared for the draft last year, only to pull out and play his senior year at GW.
