Weaknesses: Very weak physically. There’s a lot of question marks about whether he can successfully add weight to his frame. (There’s a reason some guys wear t-shirts under their jerseys) … He appears to be one of those types who was meant to be skinny and added weight could limit his mobility to some degree (Richard Hamilton has made it work, but Rip is on another level athleticially) … His lack of bodystrength hurts his ability to absorb contact and fully utilize his athletic ability … Stronger players are able to knock him off balance and push him around … He’s not a great outside shooter, despite shooting at a high percentage halfway through his junior year (20/40) from three, he takes a low volume of shots and gets a lot of open looks thanks to playing with one of the top point guards in college (Derrick Rose) … His a/to ratio has fallen off (1.5/2.3) since he has focused more attention on scoring … Needs to do a better job of protecting the ball on drives and make better decisions passing the ball …
