NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Tough as nails combo guard who wants the ball in his hands in big situations. Shows great confidence in taking the last second shot, accounting for many late game heroics... True leader really since sophomore year at Xavier ... Has massive hands (like Rondo), which allow him to control the ball with great confidence; also allows him to excel as a defender ... Despite being primarily a scorer, Holloway has stepped up his point guard abilities with developing passing skills ... Very smooth, rarely losing his composure during a game ... Solid athlete. Proven to be very efficient in transition

Weaknesses: Undersized, combo guard. Likely just 5'11 in shoes ... For a player that is known for being a scorer, his jumpshot is unorthodox and lacks a clean release ... Relies heavily on his jump shot, often times leading to low percentage fadeaways ... Will have trouble getting his jump shot off efficiently, as he does not display ideal height against the top point guards in the NBA ... Must learn to take on more of a point guard role rather than a score-first mentality ... Does not possess top-tier speed as a point guard, but is able to control the game at his own pace ... Although an excellent penetrator, he has difficulty doing so in the half court game; it is only in fastbreak opportunities that we truly see Holloway’s speed and ability to attack the rim ... Go to shot is off the dribble, which leads to predictability for those defending him ... Three point percentage has gone down over time ...

Notes: Drew some unnecessary attention to himself after the brawl vs. Cincinnati; even quoted in an ESPN article saying that basketball is no longer fun. Also came accross negatively with his unfortunate postgame comments, which didn't do his draft stock any favors ...

Andrew Johnston 5/20/12

Notes: Measured 5'11 (in shoes) 185 lbs, with a 6'6 wingspan at the 2011 Deron Williams Skills Academy.
