NBA Comparison: Stanley Roberts

Strengths: A physically imposing low post player … Has continued to work on his body, losing a lot of weight and improving his conditioning … Very efficient scorer … He has a very strong and wide frame and he is able to create room and muscle his way around the hoop … Operating on the low block he is able to establish terrific position and is also very capable of making tough catches in traffic … He uses his strength to force his way to the hoop, overpowering defenders for easy finishes inside … Has a nice mini hook going to his left shoulder … A good athlete for his size, he has the explosiveness to catch and finish strong at the rim … Extremely effective rebounder on the offensive end, he clears space and attacks the glass … Shows good timing and is able to block a lot of shots in the paint …

Weaknesses:
Has no ability to step out and shoot jumpers or put it on the floor, which limits him strictly to the center position and at 6’10 he is a bit undersized … Even with his improved physique, his motor is still very much a question mark … He has problems staying in the game for long stretches … Extremely foul prone, he is fairly undisciplined and doesn’t move his feet … Does not operate well with or finish to his left hand … Extremely poor foul shooter …

Borko Popic 6/22/10

Strengths: Mammoth of a man who has made enormous strides developing his game. Has dropped over 70 pounds since arriving on the UT campus, from 366 to the 290 range — showing his work ethic and desire to make use of his frame … Attended the Pete Newell Big Man Camp in the summer of 2008 … His quickness, agility and feel for the game continue to improve year in and year out … Has enormous hands. and very soft hands for a man his size … Has shown a deft touch around the rim (career 59% from the field) and at the free throw line (73% as junior) … Has good release and follow through on FT stroke … Uses his large frame to seal off opponents in the paint with relative ease … Finishes strong at the hoop … Was extremely passive and unsure of himself early on his college career, but has developed a mean-streak to his game … Takes advantage of his size and punishes smaller opponents … Has improved his quickness off the floor, averaging nearly three offensive boards per game as a Jr … His pet move is a drop step into the lane with a short baby hook … Extremely bright kid, was Academic All-Big 12 as a sophomore.

Weaknesses: Stamina is a major concern. Still only seeing 15 minutes of playing time per contest … Despite loss of weight, movement up and down the court is still an issue and can be painful at times … He will always be a ‘lumberer’ … Foul trouble usually emerges as a result of fatigue … He averages a foul every 5 minutes on the court … He has made massive improvements in lateral quickness and agility, but these will always be flaws … Has a tendency to push off on the offensive and defensive glass, committing unnecessary fouls. Always enjoys a major size advantage against big 12 competition. He will not enjoy this same distinct advantage against opposing Center’s in the NBA … Still brings the ball down too low in the paint, leveling the playing field against smaller foes allowing them to slap it away … Has not shown any semblance of a face up game or midrange jumper. Needs to continue to develop in these areas, as well as continued improvement in his post game, physical strength and stamina …
