NBA Comparison: Ben Gordon

Strengths: Instant offense type of shooter/scorer at the lead guard position …Very composed. Always on balance, never seems to rush things. Good pace to his game. Plays smart, values the basketball … Aggressive scorer with a crafty offensive game. Really knows how to create shots and has a strong one on one game. Good shot selection … Can knock opponents off balance and uses hesitation moves extremely well to create shots with opponents falling off balance and out of his way … Strong jump shooter and mid-range game with a strong ability to create shots for himself off the dribble … Beautiful shooting motion with excellent lift, a smooth, quick release and excellent overall form … Has the physique of an NBA linebacker with huge shoulders and a barrel chest and uses his excellent body strength to his advantage … Great strength allows him to absorb contact and finish around the rim … Strength also gives him deep range and the ability to shoot with the same accuracy late in games … Equally adept at spotting up or pulling up for shots off the dribble ... Huge wingspan allows him to finish at the rim and play bigger than 6’2 … Handles the ball extremely well. A strong defender that anticipates well and uses his strength to wear down and frustrate smaller guards … Strong on the break ... Has good speed when he gets a head of steam. Solid decision maker in transition …

Weaknesses: Solid athlete though nothing extraordinary. Lacks tremendous leaping ability … Lacks great blow by speed off the dribble … More of a scorer than a true point guard. Was not responsible for being the team’s primary point guard (Ronald Nored) … Vision and passing ability are below average for a point guard … Showing that he can be more of a full time lead guard and is capable of running the show would increase his value … Should look to increase his a/to ratio (1.46)… Playing at a mid-major, it’s tougher to prove his talent on a consistent basis … A year old for his class as he will turn 22 before the 2011 draft ... Could be on a long learning curve at the next level due to his inexperience playing the PG position, which could result in being traded a few times before finding his game (ala Chauncey Billups)

Notes: The answer to the puzzle of Butler's 2010 NCAA tourney success ... Showed that he’s capable of hanging with the NCAA elite helping Gordon Hayward and Butler reach the title game with an impressive performance in the NCAA tourney … Is sure to take on a much bigger role in the offense with Hayward no longer on the team … A player that scouts are high on. Projected as a late first/early second round pick …
