Weaknesses: Afflalo is a decent athlete but not a great one capable of dominating defenders with his explosiveness Lacks the first step to gain full separation from his defender There are times where he becomes too perimeter oriented offensively Would benefit more if he attacked the basket where he can put pressure on the defense Ball handling is okay but could stand to be refined as he isnt comfortable when pressure is applied Some have questioned if Afflalo has the ability to create scoring opportunities for himself Due to his athleticism, he is closer to reaching the ceiling Can go through periods where his jumper is inconsistent May struggle in an up-tempo offense where quickness is a bigger factor than a half court set Doesnt always look to dominate opponents, has a habit of being too passive although he is improved Despite being a solid free throw shooter Afflalos style of play rarely allows for him too draw fouls, and get to the free throw line lack of lift limits his ability to finish on the break and shoot over athletic defenders …
Weaknesses: Not a tremendous athlete … Below-average vertical leap…Not blessed with blazing speed … Has improved his rebounding from his freshman to his sophomore year, but still plenty of room for improvement … Better in the half-court than in transition … Can get sloppy handling the ball, leading to a few too many turnovers … High crossover … Can get pushed around by bigger 2-guards … Has a tendency to push off on the offensive end…Occasionally, a bit too passive…If his shot isn’t falling, the rest of his game tends to suffer.
