NBA Comparison: Fat Lever

Aran Smith – 6/5/2006

Strengths: Speedy point guard with tremendous heart … Plays the game with a ton of passion, a great competitor … Has excellent leadership ability … Has an extra gear and pushes the ball up the floor extremely fast … Led the Illini to a big season after Deron Williams moved to the NBA, and showed that he is capable of running the point guard position … His shooting percetages dipped in his senior year, but he’s a prolific scorer … Both fast and quick, gets a lot of steals by anticipating passes … Decision making has shown solid improvement … Worked hard on adding range to his shot … Solid ball handler, high assist to turnover ratio …

Weaknesses: Not a natural at PG. Many feel he is more of a shooting guard with point guard size … Lacks great vision and the ability to set up teammates for easy baskets … Can be prone to shooting slumps, a streaky shooter, his field goal percentage dipped considerably without a quality point guard (Williams) setting him up … Lacks great size at 6-0 with shoes on … Very quick but lacks great length or leaping ability to make up for his lack of height … Lack of size is likely to cause him trouble on the defensive end of the floor … Also struggles to make easy passes with defenders collapsing his passing lanes … Shooting stroke has a bit of a herky jerky release …
