NBA Comparison: Ben Wallace/Shelden Williams

Strengths: A tremendous physically specimen … He has a wide frame, a strong and developed body and a fabulous wingspan … Combining his length and bulk, it makes for an intriguing force inside … Catching the ball around the basket, he looks to power his way to the hoop for strong finishes … He moves well on offense, making good cuts and presenting a wide passing target inside … Uses his strength to establish good low post position and can hold his seals, making him a very good option in high low situations … He likes to face up when catching the ball in the post, where he can utilize his long and fairly quick first step or a nice midrange jumper … His stroke is decent, and he is comfortable stepping out to midrange …  He has a nice turnaround jumper, which is hard to defended because shoots it with a slight fade and with a high release point … Rebounds the ball extremely well, and is a terrific offensive rebounder, getting a lot of tips and putbacks … His strength and width create space inside and he is also very good at using them on the defensive end to push his man off the block …

Weaknesses: A bit undersized as an inside player and does not have great athleticism (his length somewhat makes up for both deficiencies) … Not a reliable or consistent scorer and is not effective having plays run for him … Not a natural player and it shows in some of his decision making as well as silly turnovers … He depends heavily on movement and energy plays to create his scoring opportunities and on the nights when the ball doesn’t bounce his way he can disappear entirely for long stretches … He becomes predictable by using a spin move almost every time he attacks the hoop facing up …  Does not have a good repertoire of post moves inside, and his footwork is fairly limited … He struggles making counter moves and is often called for travelling because he shuffles his feet inside … Unless he dunks the ball, he has a hard time finishing around the basket because he does not have a very good touch … At times he makes good moves, but ends up loosing his balance and body control at the last moment, and therefore misses his shot badly … His motor is a bit of a question mark at this point because he has never played major minutes at any point in his career … Must improve his foul shooting …
