NBA Comparison: Boris Diaw

Matthew Maurer - 12/3/2006

Strengths: Has the size that the NBA covets at the point guard position Ball handling ability is superb. He uses a number of crossovers and between the leg dribbles to get separation from his defender Unselfish player who has a pass first mentality Owns above average court vision and has improved on controlling the tempo Excels at creating scoring for his teammates off the drive and dish Possesses three point range on his jumpshot For his height, has great mobility and leaping ability Is an excellent finisher and can dunk with flair Size creates mismatches as he can shoot over most guards . Defensively he does a good job of using his long arms to disrupt passing lanes and block shots Despite a tendency to be out of position, Yue makes a solid contribution rebounding the ball Does a great job of pushing the ball up the court on the fast break

Weaknesses: Still lacks upper body strength which would benefit him greatly on both ends of the floor Must continue to improve on his lateral quickness as quicker guards can give him trouble At times he fails to protect the ball, especially when going for the spectacular play Perimeter shooting has shown improvement but still remains a work in progress, particularly his shooting mechanics Yue must improve on moving without the ball as he has a habit of standing around Lacks the post moves to take full advantage of mismatches Defers too much to his teammates and can be unselfish to a fault Mid range game remains underutilized, either he drives or shoots the three. There is no in between jumper Struggles to maintain his dribble when pressured by quick and aggressive defenders It remains unclear what position he will play in the NBA: Hes slow for the point guard position and lacks shooting ability for the two guard

Allen Jiang - 5/5/2006

Strengths: Unusual height for his position, terrific athlete, excellent jumper and quickness ... With 6-9 height, he has the ability to play the point guard position ... Decent ball handling skills, talented passer, outstanding court vision, good at finding open teammates ... Very unselfish with pass first mentality, great fast break player and play-maker, accurate bounce passer ... Penetrates well with a good ability to attack the hoop, quick first step ... Takes advantage of being left handed catching opponents off guard ... Likes to dunk, can do windmill/360 dunks easily ... Can shoot anywhere inside the NBA 3-point line ... Nice shooting stroke, soft touch, high release points on his shot ... Can guard positions from 1 to 4 , taking advantage of his height and length to pressure his opponents to adjust their shooting rhythm ... Great lateral speed on defense ; good reflexes as well as leaping ability make him a good shot blocker ... He performs as a help defender and even a rebounder under the basket for his team. 2.5 blks,1.9 stls and 7 rebs per game, the numbers reflect his defensive contribution ... His versatility gives him a chance to get Quadruple-double statistics in games, granted it's the ABA.... Shows a great passion to win other than his stats ... In addition, his age is not in question.

Weaknesses: Physically weak like most young Chinese players ...His ball handling and ball protection need improvement for the NBA level ... As the main distributer (a team high 6.7 assists per game) , he usually saw the most pressure from their opponents, getting doubled sometimes. 4 Turnovers per game indicates that he should better learn to deal with tough defense ... He relies on his left hand too much , though he is making progress on his right handed ball handling skills ... To be a NBA player, his shooting skills still need work, less stability from downtown (39% FG, 25% 3pt FG ) Raw 1 on 1 skills ... Underdeveloped post skills, with his size learning to post up smaller wing players would be a big advantage for him ... Some concern about his ability to guard fast NBA guards ...

Notes: Selected by Chinese national team coach Jonas when he was only 19 yrs old ... Honored All Star player of ABA league in his first year contacting American style basketball ... Has showed progress in adapting to American culture and his language skills with a year in the ABA ...
