NBA Comparison: Cuttino Mobley

Strengths: Highly efficient offensive player (50% FG) with an old school style … Assassin-like scorer (16.5 PPG) in the "crafty" mold … The mid-range game is his natural comfort zone, but his three-point aptitude has been a revelation (49% as freshman, 52% as soph) … His jumpshot mechanics are clean and he gets solid elevation … Shows the ability to put the ball on the deck with either hand, and his aggression level is on the uptick (4.5 FT attempts) … His go to move off the dribble is a cross over + step back to create space for a mid-range J … Plays at a controlled pace in congruency with his calm and cool demeanor (0.5 TO) … No wasted emotional energy on the court … Shot selection is no longer a concern, as he stays within his role in the offensive structure and doesn’t force opportunities … Extremely active trying to get open off the ball … Utilizes screens effectively and has a quick trigger in catch and shoot situations … Defensive effort is a staple … Makes up for lack of size with tremendous length and moves well laterally … His projected role at the next level is already defined: a knock down shooter with well rounded skills and the ability to handle if necessary … Also shows the versailtiy to play the point position in spot duty as he did as a freshman backing up Knight as well as in High School at Oak Hill …

Weaknesses: Despite his ability to score the rock, the fact remains that he’s caught between positions … He lacks the playmaking ability (1.6 assists as fresh, 2.8 as soph) to handle the point guard spot full time, and the size/strength to effectively defend NBA two’s … Remains a shoot first, shoot second, create third guard … He’s added weight, but must get stronger … While Lamb is a smooth athlete, he has no eye popping tools … Explosive lift and extreme quickness are not part of his repertoire … Not overly inclined to attack the bucket or finish at the rim … Will struggle to get his own shot against premiere athletes, reliant on an offensive set or someone to create for him … A complimentary part on a winning team, similar to his current role at Kentucky … Doesn’t have the personality or elite physical gifts to take over a game …

Notes: Measured 6’5 (in shoes) 204 lbs, with a 6’7 wingspan at the 2011 Kevin Durant Skills Academy.

  1. Marcus Thorton is one of the

    Marcus Thorton is one of the best comparisons. Don’t know if I even believe the 6"4 thing though. Measurements will be a big part of his stock whenever he comes out. Unless he has a great NCAA tourny or something to set him apart he could benefit from going back to school.  Under-sized SG’s don’t usually stand out well.

  2. i really don’t like this

    i really don’t like this comparison, both scorers but Marcus Thornton rely more on quickness and aggressiveness and Doron Lamb more on smoothness and long range shooting, remind me a smaller Michael Redd!
